My Review:

If you enjoy English cosy mysteries, this one is for you
A fascinating read to keep you guessing all the way through!
Francesca Eve is a caterer who creates what any dish
From breakfast to dinner, whatever her clients wish.

This time she's at Claremont House to cater for the weekend
Where important business guests some time will spend.
However, the wealthy hosts and guests
Seem to be outdoing each other to be worse than the rest!

When the host turns up dead, Fran knows just who to call
Thank goodness Adam is with her to help cope with it all.
With rumours, adultery, secrets and surprises around
Can together these two ensure the murderer is found?

A fantastic read that had me turning the pages without pause
Trying to identify motive, method, weapon and perpetrator of course.
I really enjoyed how this mismatched pair work together
To ensure justice is achieved is their endeavour.

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
A brilliant cosy mystery and this is my honest review.
With great characters, intrigue and surprises, too
I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to you.

About the Book: 

Francesca Eve, caterer extraordinaire, has come to Claremont House to work for the cream of society. A full breakfast spread? Simple. A glorious picnic lunch? Easy as pie. But a dead body for dinner was definitely not on the menu…

No sooner has Francesca Eve turned up for a jam-packed weekend of gourmet catering at a posh country house than she realises how challenging this event is set to be. Not only are the hosts wealthy – and demanding – beyond her wildest dreams, but each of the guests is more difficult than the last. But she never expected the host to turn up dead…

Suspicion falls on everyone in the house – could there be a murderer in their midst? Is the incredibly glamorous, and now extremely rich, widow really as upset as she’s making out? What secret is the housekeeper hiding? Whose money troubles are now forgotten? As the only person without a motive, Fran’s intimate knowledge of the house party puts her in the prime position to help the police.

As rumours swirl and guests’ pasts come to light, someone else is found dead. But when the police arrest their chief suspect, Fran becomes convinced they have the wrong person – the evidence is almost too neat to be true. So she decides to strike out alone, in the country house where the killer is still staying… Someone has killed twice to keep their secret safe. Will Fran be able to unmask them, or will this weekend turn out to be her deadliest job ever?

A page-turning cozy mystery packed with twists. If you love Faith Martin, M.C. Beaton and The Thursday Murder Club you’ll absolutely adore this unputdownable whodunnit.

The first book in this series is Death in Disguise

Author Bio:

After a varied career, Emma Davies once worked for a design studio where she was asked to provide a fun and humorous (and not necessarily true) anecdote for their website. She wrote the following: ‘I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.’ Well the job in the design studio didn’t work out but she’s now a forty something mother of three and is happy to report the rest of her dream came true.

After many years as a finance manager she now writes full time, and is far happier playing with words than numbers. She lives with her husband, three children, and two guinea pigs in rural Shropshire where she writes in all the gaps in between real life. It’s a county she adores, her love of its beautiful people and landscapes providing endless inspiration for her books, and in fact the only thing that would make Shropshire more idyllic is if it were by the sea.
