A Cornish Recipe for Murder

Fiona Leitch whips up another witty and well-crafted whodunnit!

A Cornish Recipe for Murder is the delightful fifth book in the Nosey Parker Mystery series by Fiona Leitch. I love a good British cozy, and this series is one of my favorites. It just keeps getting better and better!


Jodie "Nosey" Parker is a former police officer turned chef. She has a hunky detective boyfriend, a precocious teenage daughter, and a mother who is just a hoot! This story finds her competing in a reality baking show based on The Great British Bake Off. Unfortunately, an on-set murder means Jodie will be just as focused on ferreting out the murder as she is on her show-stopper.


Leitch's inviting writing style, and this entertaining plot hooked me immediately. Well-paced and full of red herrings, it's a clever whodunnit against a backdrop of reality tv fun. I loved the Bake-Off scenes, and we get a bit more of Jodie's sweet romance. The dialogue between characters is witty and natural, and these books feel like a visit with friends. And Jodie's internal dialogue is always so much fun to read, with her dry humor and amusing observations, and she was in top form! I was smiling on page 1. If you enjoy humourous and well-crafted British mysteries, you should try this series!


Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Collins, UK, One More Chapter for the opportunity to read this ARC. I enjoyed it!
