When a woman seeking advice about an abusive husband is found dead, recipe advice columnist Tannie Maria, and her colleague, rookie journalist Jessie, spring into action, determined to solve this small town Karoo murder and catch the killer. Big city cop Khaya and his team of local police officers always find themselves just slightly behind the detecting duo, as the investigation takes us through an array of unlikely suspects.
Meet Tannie Maria. She's fifty-something, short and soft (perhaps a bit too soft in the wrong places). Tannie Maria is our irresistible narrator, a woman of hearty appetite and formidable culinary skills. Tannie Maria lives in the small town of Eden in South Africa and is obsessed with food. She's a bit of an oddity in this very hot and dry farming region of the Karoo, having arrived ten years ago from Scotland, when she inherited her great aunt's house. Along with her co-worker, Jessie - a kick-ass young black investigative journalist - she gets drawn into a murder mystery. When The Karoo Gazette insists on replacing her recipe page with an Agony Aunt column, Tannie Maria discovers she has a gift for helping people to deal with their heartaches and confront their fears - with just the right recipe in the mix every time. When a woman from the village is viciously murdered, Tannie Maria and her feisty young reporter colleague Jessie can't resist being drawn into the investigation. Martine's murder shakes up the whole town, skeletons come flying out of closets, and danger lurks around every corner. A murder mystery series with a spicy comedic flavor, based on the best-selling Tannie Maria books by Sally Andrew, and set in the breathtaking landscapes of South Africa and Scotland.
