When a body turned up at her last catering gig it certainly put people off the hor d'oeuvres. So with a reputation to salvage, Jodie’s determined that her next job for the village’s festival will go without a hitch.

But when chaos breaks out, Jodie Parker somehow always finds herself in the picture.

Can she find the killer before the village faces another brush with death?



Review:



I was impatient to read the second book in The Nosey Parker series because Fiona Leitch cought my interest with her witty writing and I grew attached to our main charater Jodie Parker and all her family and friends.

It's time for Penstowan to start its Summer Festival, ops my bad Art Gala.
Jodie, our ex cop now catering company owner, is busy organising the catering but when a body appears at the bottom of the cliff she is ready to help the police with the investigation. Is it a tragic accident or is there a murderer among the vacationers?

Jodie is a great heroine, she is smart and funny and her love life is such a chaos you cannot not to be curious what she will finally choose to do.

I've enjoyed this story even if the mystery was a bit easy to unveil and the amorous intrigues took most of my attention.

A Brush With Death is a standalone story and it could be read as it is but I suggest you to not miss out on the first book because Murder On The Menu is a very good and enterteining mystery.
