Soon to be divorced Julia South never expected to be caught up in solving a murder, until she discovered the body of her cafe’s most awkward customer. With a new smug Detective Inspector in town who underestimates her every move, Julia makes it her mission to discover the real murderer, before her village friends are dragged into the frame, and more bodies are discovered.


I was really pleased to discover this series of books by Agatha Frost. This was a great start to a series that makes you want to read the next one as soon as you’ve finished!

It’s a fab, gentle cozy mystery with a brilliant amateur sleuth who pulls you in from the start. She’s one of those ones you’ll love to see develop through the series and there are lots more books to read! So, if like me you get a bit addicted to a character, there’ll be plenty to keep you going! The story is complicated enough to keep you guessing, but not so hard you spend the whole time frowning trying to remember who’s who and what’s what. I love a foodie cosy and this one will certainly whet your appetite!
