Thanks Debbie:

 

She was quite a woman. I have her novel:

Heartburn 

 

I'll have to pull it out and read it.

You're welcome Eadie, she was as you probably know Hallie's sister and a friend of Hank Phillipi Ryan.

I heard about this last night and watched "You've Got Mail" in her honor.  A loss in the film community, for certain.

I too was saddened to hear of Nora Ephron's death. I remember reading Heartburn, years ago, and if my memory serves me right, it was one of the first books to combine fiction with included recipes. The Cozy Mystery writers of today owe her a debt of gratitude for paving the way for more books that combined the two aspects. There were several articles in our local paper today about Nora; one was by her friend Sally Quinn, and the other discussed the best lines from films where Nora had written the script.

I loved her quirky sense of humor, and the last book of hers I read was I Feel Bad About My Neck.
