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 quite like having your first job back at home be catering an ex-boyfriend’s wedding to remind you of just how small your village is. And when the bride 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, murder and mayhem lurks around every corner…

But surely saving the day will be a piece of cake for this not-so-amateur sleuth?


You all know that I’m a huge cosy mystery fan and Fiona’s books are definitely in my top favourites! I’d read her Dead in Venice and loved it so when her new series started in 2021 I was straight in there. I’m just sorry it’s taken me so long to share my review because I’m actually onto book 3 now.

Sufficed to say, this series has Fiona’s trademark wit and her characters are well drawn and sassy. I love Jodie! With a fabulous supporting cast, red herrings and clues, this really is a mystery series all crime fans should read!
