Murder on the Menu by Fiona Leitch


Release Date: 01.15.2021


Still spinning from the hustle and bustle of city life, Jodie ‘Nosey’ Parker is glad to be back in the Cornish village she calls home. Having quit the Met Police in search of something less dangerous, the change of pace means she can finally start her dream catering company and raise her daughter, Daisy, somewhere safer.

But there’s nothing like having your first job back at home to be catering an ex-boyfriend’s wedding to remind you of just how small your village is. And when the bride, Cheryl, vanishes Jodie is drawn into the investigation, realising that life in the countryside might not be as quaint as she remembers…

With a missing bride on their hands, there is murder and mayhem around every corner but surely saving the day will be a piece of cake for this not-so-amateur sleuth?


Jodie Parker left London’s cops and her cheating husband to come back to her hometown on the Cornwall coast with her pre teen daughter.
She became a chef and she opened her own catering company and now she is ready to start her new quiet life in Penstowan.
She doesn’t expect, by accepting to carter one of her old friend’s wedding, to be involved in the investigation for a murderer.

Murder On The Menu was such a good read.
I fell into the well thought out plot at the first chapter and I closed the book only to take some sleep because I was too curious to know how it ended.

This was the first time I've read a Fiona Leitch’s work and her intriguing, humorous wording and the nice, witty and funny characters have conquered my reader heart.
I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere she gave to the story, it was never boring or heavy.
My favourite character is Jodie, she is a likeable character and I so wanted to help her to find the murderer.
The ending clears up any doubt about the crime but it leaves an open door on Jodie’s future, will she find love? Is catering her real career?

I highly recommend to read this story and escape to Cornwall to follow Jodie, Tony and DCI Wither in this journey full of turn and twists.
