Today I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Murder On The Menu. My review is written with thanks to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on the tour and to the publisher for my copy of the book.
The first book in a NEW cosy mystery series!
Still spinning from the hustle and bustle of city life, Jodie ‘Nosey’ Parker is glad to be back in the Cornish village she calls home. Having quit the Met Police in search of something less dangerous, the change of pace means she can finally start her dream catering company and raise her daughter, Daisy, somewhere safer.
But there’s nothing like having your first job back at home to be catering an ex-boyfriend’s wedding to remind you of just how small your village is. And when the bride, Cheryl, vanishes Jodie is drawn into the investigation, realising that life in the countryside might not be as quaint as she remembers…
With a missing bride on their hands, there is murder and mayhem around every corner but surely saving the day will be a piece of cake for this not-so-amateur sleuth?
The first book in the Murder on the Menu cosy mystery series. Can be read as a standalone. A humorous cosy mystery with a British female sleuth in a small village. Includes one of Jodie’s Tried and Tested Recipes! Written in British English. Mild profanity and peril.
I’ve loved all of Fiona Leitch’s previous books so I was excited to get stuck in with a brand new character! Jodie “Nosey” Parker is every bit as brilliant as I hoped she would be. I loved her adventurous streak and her knack for finding trouble and her sense of humour is simply fabulous. I also enjoyed meeting her family and friends and I think Leitch really captures the good and bad things about living in a town where everyone knows each other.
Leitch makes writing look so effortless! The novel is easy to read and I was instantly engaged in Murder On The Menu and felt invested in both the plot and the characters. There were certain turns of phrase that made me laugh out loud – something which makes this novel stand out from the crowd!
At the centre of the plot is a very intriguing mystery and I really wanted to find out the truth behind the crimes. I was fascinated as everything unravelled and I couldn’t wait to see how it ended!
I am really looking forward to seeing how this series continues.
Murder On The Menu is available from Amazon.
