so so

slow to get going, listened to a couple of these now and it feels a bit like Agatha Christie stories being recycled.

Great read

A delicious who done it. Travelling cook Jenny Starling finds herself faced with another murder to solve and the police are none to happy with her presence. Most enjoyable.

Too Far Fetched

I have liked this author. But this is a terrible book. The premis is silly. Half of the food described would take three people to cook let alone one. The plot is so far fetched to be believable. It is going back!

The Riverboat Mystery

I absolutely love these mystery series and will keep on reading/listening to them all. This was an excellent story and kept you giessing until the end. Am getting so into Jenny Starling's character, she is excellent and love the cooking too. The reading is very good.

Twists, turns, and food!

A goddess of food and intelligence Starling makes a terrific heroine. A fun listen i stayed up half the night to find out the finish. Narrator is strong, plot has twists, a joy of culinary experience as well. I am hooked on this series
