Small-town murder was never so calculated.
On a peaceful morning in an English coastal town, a handsome stranger meets a gruesome end.
As café-bar owner Charlotte Denver takes up the challenge to help find the killer before they strike again, she uncovers a shocking plot that rocks a close-knit community to its core.
There's amateur sleuthing, engaging characters, and recipes to try for yourself in Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse, the first book in the feel-good Charlotte Denver Cozy Mystery Series.
Please Note; This book is written in British English and contains no strong profanity, sex or graphic violence.
Charlotte's cafe-bar is the go to place for folks in this small English town, including the handsome, charming stranger who she finds dead. Nathan Costello tells Charlotte more than once to stay out of the investigation, but she happens on bits of information and follows the leads, always letting him know after the fact.
As most small towns, there are interesting residents. My favorite was Tom Potts, and his dog of course. This was a fun read, with an easy pace and hints of romance; the characters are engaging and the ending makes sense. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series:
HAMBURGERS, HOMICIDE AND A HONEYMOON
FUDGE CAKE, FELONY AND A FUNERAL
SPARE RIBS, SECRETS AND A SCANDAL
