There is a free prequel available on Amazon right now. Chef Maurice and the Rather Fishy Tale: A Chef Maurice Mystery Short Story
It’s autumn in the Cotswolds, and Chef Maurice is facing a problem of mushrooming proportion.
Not only has his wild herb and mushroom supplier, Ollie Meadows, missed his weekly delivery—he’s missing vital signs too, when he turns up dead in the woods near Beakley village.
Soon, Chef Maurice is up to his nose in some seriously rotten business—complete with threatening notes, a pignapping, and an extremely well-catered stake-out.
Can he solve Ollie’s murder before his home-made investigation brings the killer out for second helpings?
What I Thought:
This one was okay. It is very humorous and filled with many eccentric characters. It is set in the English Countryside and there are many suspects, which will keep a reader guessing till the end. Along the way Chef Maurice and his side-kick, Arthur, end up obtaining Hamilton the pig. The story is told from his prospective a time or two. It is well plotted and well written. This book will keep you highly entertained.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
