A Taste of Death

By H.V. Coombs

‘An irresistibly mouth-watering mix of sleuthery and cooking’ Trisha Ashley

Midsomer Murders meets The Great British Bake Off in this foodie delight with murder at its heart.

The first murder happened while I was making meringues…

When Ben Hunter moves to become head chef at the Old Forge Café in the quiet village of Hampden Green, a tricky recipe for egg-based desserts isn’t the only thing he gets embroiled in. As he struggles with a whisk in his first week, he gets an unexpected visit from DI Slattery – there’s been a murder and he’s a suspect.

Ben resolves to get to the bottom of the mystery, and he soon discovers that this sleepy Chilterns village is covering up a whole lot more than an appetite for sweet treats…

’Kept me turning the pages. Highly enjoyable’ Frances Brody, author of the Kate Shackleton series

‘a confection of laugh out loud out moments with a very satisfactory twist which leaves you wanting more.’ Scarlett Brodie
