Today I’m reviewing the last cosy mystery on my TBR pile. ‘Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse’ by Sherry Bryan
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Charlotte Denver runs her marina front café in the bustling fishing town of St. Eves, nestled in the south-west corner of England.
While she loves the tranquility of St. Eves, where crime is almost unheard of, and nothing really exciting ever happens, her good friend, Chief Inspector Nathan Costello, is longing for a good, juicy felony to get his teeth into.
When the arrival of newcomers to the community of St. Eves triggers a chain of events that end in tragedy, Nathan relishes the thrill of investigating his first murder, while Charlotte unwittingly turns amateur-sleuth to help solve the case and restore peace and harmony to the town as quickly as possible.
Twists and turns abound in Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse, the first book in the Charlotte Denver Cosy Mystery series.
Did I like it?
Again, what’s not to like in a cosy mystery? There is no gore, no descriptive sex. But you get an interesting mystery with kind of a surprising finish. Interesting characters with just the background you need. A nice scenery. Just what you need, just what you paid for.
What I didn’t like
Besides the fact that only 50% of the recipes are something for me. Not that the recipes are bad, I just don’t eat dead animals. Nothing, absolutely nothing.
Would I recommend it?
Sure, if you like cosy mysteries. You like cooking and/or eating. Give it a go 16.5 out of 20 points
