Book Review-Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse-Sheri Bryan

Monday, October 10, 2016

This book is written in British English but does not detract from the story line at all. As a matter of fact it was a refreshing difference. It is a simple and clean cozy mystery that most will enjoy. It took me no time at all to read.

The characters really are like people we would know--with all their ups and downs and insecurities. Small town living---is nothing ever a secret? Well except for one--who killed that handsome stranger and why?

You won't expect the answer to that one--for real you won't!! This is the first book I have read by this author--but it won't be the last.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Small-town murder was never so calculated.

On a peaceful morning in an English coastal town, a handsome stranger meets a gruesome end.

As café-bar owner Charlotte Denver takes up the challenge to help find the killer before they strike again, she uncovers a shocking plot that rocks a close-knit community to its core.

There's amateur sleuthing, engaging characters, and recipes to try for yourself in Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse, the first book in the feel-good Charlotte Denver Cozy Mystery Series.

Please Note; This book is written in British English and contains no strong profanity, sex or graphic violence.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

One day, long ago, in a land far, far away, Sherri Bryan sat at her wooden desk.

Day after day, she sat, wishing she had some magic beans which would help her write a story that would be loved by all who read it.

Not just any story, though. It had to be a mystery story.

And not just any mystery, of course. It had to be a Cozy Mystery.

Unfortunately, the magic beans never arrived but the Cozy Mystery stories did. Five of them, with one on the way.

Sherri loves her Cozy Mystery stories -- she hopes there will be many more to come.

Until then, though, she sits at her wooden desk and wishes for captivating plot ideas and engaging characters to visit her in her dreams.

Sherri hopes that she, and her Cozy Mystery stories, will live happily ever after, just like the characters in her books.

The ones that don't get bumped off, that is.
