About The Author –
I write romantic comedy mysteries and when I’m not writing I can be found gardening (trying to grow tomatoes in the British climate is a major challenge!) walking the dogs or reading.
I’m a former therapist, a fan of the great outdoors – especially Scotland, the Lake District and Derbyshire’s Peak district – and also something of a dreamer!
Home is a village on the Derbyshire / Leicestershire border in the UK with my husband, our 4 Labrador dogs, a vegetable patch that’s home to far too many weeds and an ever expanding library of books waiting to be read.
At every opportunity I can be found scribbling down notes on scenes for whatever novel I’m working on and I love it when the characters in my work in progress novels take on minds of their own and start deviating from the original plot!
Review of Murder on the Menu
Review (3.75 Stars): Murder on the Menu was a charming, light-hearted mystery with a fun heroine and witty dialogue. Lizzie has moved from London to rebuild her life after inheriting her aunt and uncle’s farmhouse and is currently working as a waitress. When her celebrity chef boss is found dead and Lizzie was the last one to see him alive, she becomes the prime suspect in a murder. With the help of her new secret spy neighbor, Lizzie must find a killer before her dreams of a new life go up in smoke.
This is the first book in the Celebrity Mystery series and I enjoyed this fun mystery. Lizzie was a great character that was just trying to pick up the pieces of her life and the mysterious Jack was exactly what she needed to lift her spirits up. Even if she was the prime suspect in a murder. Murder on the Menu had many twists and turns and I’m looking forward to reading the next installment in the series.
