Goodreads synopsis: 

Jodie ‘Nosey’ Parker is back!

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.

The body of a writer from the festival is discovered at the bottom of a cliff, and the prime suspect is the guest of honour, the esteemed painter Duncan Stovall. With her background in the Met police, Jodie has got solving cases down to a fine art and she knows things are rarely as they seem.

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

The second book in the Jodie ‘Nosey’ Parker cosy mystery series. Can be read as a standalone. A humorous cosy mystery with a British female sleuth in a small village. Includes one of Jodie's Tried and Tested Recipes! Written in British English. Mild profanity and peril.


4.5 stars

This is the second book in the Nosey Parker series by Fiona Leitch.

Jodie has met who she thinks is “the one”. Problem is… he is married! Duncan is everything she wants in a man. Then someone falls off a nearby cliff and it looks like Duncan might have been involved. So Nosey Parker gets involved.

There is a bit of relationship angst in this book. She can’t decide between Nathan the cop, Duncan the artist or Tony the best friend. She is a lot wishy washy in that regard. Glad she is better at mysteries than boyfriends.

I am really enjoying this series. It is interesting and it really keeps your attention. I was captivated by her budding relationship with Duncan wondering all the while would he be a new recurring character. The mystery was nice but it was the people that kept me reading. Loving Leitch’s character set here. So me!

Loved so much about it. If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.

I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
