Everyone's favorite dysfunctional crime family celebrates Independence Day in classic mobster style in the fifth installment of the worldwide, bestselling short story series.
Join them at an annual barbeque as they try to stop “hot” fireworks from exploding too early, enjoy non-traditional picnic food, and uncover a strange good-luck charm that could reign death and destruction before the day ends.
The discovery of a valuable asset will change their lives forever and uncover their own idea of the American Dream.
Frannie and David Young have been married over twenty years, have two kids, busy jobs, a house in the suburbs and a dog named Max. To keep the romance alive in their relationship, they plan a “date” twice a month. Their block of time together includes very few rules—no kids or dogs, but requires an open mind. Frannie and David take turns planning dates, depending on the NFL’s schedule and how the planets are aligned that particular month
In the third short story of the series, Frannie and David visit the Mustard Museum where they encounter life-sized bottles of condiments, Louisiana hot sauce, and crowds of elderly tourists. Fearing their relationship has lost its “zing” as they head towards being Empty Nesters, they reaffirm their passion for each other, Mustard Museum style.
The most hilariously dysfunctional crime family returns for their fourth outing in Beth Mathison's hit short story series.
To observe Mother's Day, Jeremy brings his best girl Carla to brunch at Pawleski's Supper Club. Harry and Charlie have provided the unique contraband menu that has conveniently "fallen off" of various trucks. The mothers of all the young kids have disappeared for the day, leaving an olive-throwing gang of kids in the club's banquet room. And Aunt Shirley tries to keep the peace between the kids' table and the grown-ups while ensuring the mimosas keep flowing.
Can Jeremy and Carla's relationship and cupcake business survive another untraditional holiday? Or will the common bond of living outside their families and trying to avoid "family business" make their relationship even stronger?
For Jeremy, trying to be live a life outside of the "family business" isn't easy. First, there was the Thanksgiving dinner disaster of A MOBSTER'S GUIDE TO CRANBERRY SAUCE, followed by the Valentine's Day nightmare of A MOBSTER'S RECIPE FOR CUPCAKES. By now, you'd think he'd find somewhere to lay low when a holiday rolls around.
Unfortunately for Jeremy, it appears St. Patrick's Day is going to be another trouble-filled holiday. His girlfriend Carla may be leaving him, his cupcake business is in danger of shutting down and his attempt to drown his troubles in green beer is being interrupted by Harry and Charlie, two of the most inept members of his family's employees.
When the bartender's cousin shows up with "family business" of his own, Jeremy's pretty sure he's gotten himself in the middle of a situation that no four-leaf clover is going to fix. Can Jeremy survive another holiday, get his girl back and not be driven insane by Harry and Charlie?
This is the third in Beth Mathison's MOBSTER humorous, short story crime series.
