Prudence Bulstrode, TV chef and 'National Treasure', has been hired by an energy company to cook a feast meant to soften up the locals in the village where they plan to start fracking. Prudence is enjoying the cook until a coin is found in one of her puddings and then a local man is found dead, rolled into a snowman on the village green. As the weather sets in Prudence and her granddaughter find themselves drawn into a mystery around a lost Roman treasure.
I hadn't read the first in this series, I am always wary of celebrities writing fiction and I am a latecomer to the cosy crime genre. However I really enjoyed this book. Of course, it helped that it was set in a really beautiful part of North Yorkshire that I know well! There is a streak of self-knowing humour running through the characters and, although the plot is full of holes, there is a nice mix of detection and fun. Add in a lot of lovely sounding food and it's a winner for me.… (lisätietoja)

When one of celebrity chef Prudence Bulstrode’s rivals is found dead in the rhubarb patch at a country mansion during a shooting party event, she finds herself jumping into her camper van along with granddaughter, Suki, to save the day. All is not as it seems at Farleigh Hall, however, as someone has murder on their mind. So will it be a case of too many cooks spoil the broth?

Agatha Raisin meets Mary Berry (but perhaps on acid!) in this cosy murder mystery. There are nods to other books like The Suspicions of Mr Whicher and Lady Chatterley’s Lover within the plot line. It’s a fun and entertaining read notwithstanding, but I did work out the villain of the piece early on. Prudence is one smart cookie amongst a minestrone of zany characters, so it doesn’t take her long with a little help from Suki and her iPhone to ice the cake and put the cherry on top! 🍰 And I’m sure this intrepid duo will be back in the midst of another stew of a mystery very soon. 😁… (lisätietoja)
