Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: **Author Special** Christine Warner

  Karen’s Killer Fixin’s **AUTHOR SPECIAL**

Welcome to my new Friday bonus feature called Karen’s Killer Fixin’s **Author Special**!  Today, in lieu of one of my own recipes, I’m going to introduce you to a new author who will share one of her recipes. Not only will you and I occasionally learn how to make something new and delicious, but we’ll get a chance to check out some wonderful authors.

Introducing author, CHRISTINE WARNER, and her recipe for Chicken Salad Sandwiches!

BOOK PEEK  ~ Some Like It in Handcuffs
Releasing March 23, 2012 with The Wild Rose Press

Sunny Kennedy is a fledgling private investigator and the only girl in a family of protective male detectives. She’s out to prove testosterone isn’t the main qualification required to solve a cold case. The only things standing in her way are a sexy detective and a killer who will stop at nothing to keep a secret.

Judson Blackwolf, a seasoned homicide detective, thinks women in law enforcement should work behind the scenes. The prospect of working with his Captain’s sexy daughter doesn’t thrill him.

But when their investigation takes a dangerous turn, they realize their feelings for each other, tangled in a web from the past, might not be the only thing to keep them apart.


“This isn’t how I wanted it between us.”  Judson grabbed the neckline of her sweater, dragging her body to meet his with a solid thump.  Sunny licked her lips in answer to the question in his eyes.  He lowered his head to move his mouth over hers.

Sunny closed her eyes, a small whimper escaping her lips.  She didn’t want it like this either, but that wasn’t possible.  Unable to resist her attraction she accepted it wasn’t an affair, or a long distance romance she craved, but for him to love her back.  It was all or nothing for her.  Her heart sank.  She accepted this as their goodbye kiss.

With no thought to what was happening upstairs, Sunny rose up on her toes demanding more.  Her lips pulsated against Judson’s.  When his hand trembled against her cheek in a soft caress she lost touch with reality.

“Judson.” Sunny’s weakened body drifted farther into Judson’s as his fingers glided down her arms, pulling them to her sides where their fingers intertwined.  He forced them behind her before his tongue thrust into her mouth.

Their bodies molded together, she heard her own heartbeat and his as well when he curved his fingers around her rear and squeezed.

That’s when the click of the handcuffs against her wrist connected her to the handle of the locked cupboard.

“What the hell…Judson?”  She looked up at him, her knees shook, her body still inflamed with fever.

“Like I was saying, you wait here and I’ll go upstairs to check it out.  Backup’s already been called, so you’re safe until your brothers arrive.”  Judson winked before walking toward the steps to the third level.  Once he reached them he turned toward her and smiled.  “Gotcha,” he whispered with his notorious grin.

In the right hand column menu, you can even look up past recipes by type. i.e. Desserts, Breads, Beef, Chicken, Soups, Author Specials, etc.



3 White chicken breasts cubed
1 cup red or green grapes without pits (I slice them in ½)
¾ cup Celery
1 small onion diced
½ cup chopped walnuts
Miracle Whip as desired (important to use Miracle Whip and not mayo)

You can serve on croissants or Hawaiian dinner rolls with 1 lettuce leaf per sandwich.  If I’m serving at a get together, I put a strawberry or olive on a toothpick and insert through the center.

NOTE FROM CHRISTINE: I know that this recipe is more geared toward the summer months, but there are times during the winter I get a craving for this and make it anyway!  Yep, it’s that good!  J

    1. I’m the one who needs to thank you for joining us, Christine! Can’t wait to try your recipe. Summer or not, it sounds delicious. And I can’t wait too get my hands on your book. Sounds like so much fun!


  1. I don’t know which I liked better, the recipe or the excerpt! Now I’m hungry and want to read the rest. Cute, cute scene, Christine. Looking forward to reading the whole book now.

  2. Fantastic, ladies! Can’t wait for your book to come out, Christine!! I’ve been waiting to read it! Congrats on the release and I’ll be the first to buy it!
    Have a great day!
    Oh, and the recipe sounds wonderful too 🙂

    1. Well, we have the sandwiches but it’s sans book still! Pout. Can you tell I’m into immediate gratification? 🙂


  3. Awesome excerpt! I can hardly wait to get my hands on your book! Well, on my kindle, lol.

    Your recipe for C.S sandwiches sounds deeeeelicious! I’m going to make them tomorrow–I’d make them today but I don’t have any grapes or chicken breast.

  4. That except really made me want to slap Judson! LOL. I also get cravings for chicken salad at various times of the year. If I had Miracle Whip in the house I’d be making your recipe right now.

  5. Oh no Ally…don’t slap Judson…he’s actually got a very playful personality and they spar with each other a lot. LOL

    Thanks so much everyone who has stopped by….so glad to see you all here and so excited Karen asked me to visit!

    1. Thanks for visiting, Christine! I enjoyed having you. Best of luck with your release! Have a great weekend!


  6. Hello Ladies,

    Enjoyed the post, the excerpt and the recipe. Not sure I’m into the grapes but chicken/sweet usually works for me.

    Looking forward to your release, Christine!

    1. I’m curious, Joanna. What would you use as a sweet as an alternative to grapes? I wouldn’t mind having two ways to fix Christine’s sandwich! 🙂

      Have a great Sunday!
