Description

Discover a new series of whodunits by million-selling author Faith Martin. You'll be gripped from the first second to the last. These classic-style mysteries will have you scratching your head to work out who the murderer is, and look out for some real twists and turns. 

Meet Jenny Starling: travelling cook and reluctant amateur detective. 

Jenny Starling is catering the 21st birthday party of upper-class twins Alicia and Justin. 

She arrives at their parents' country house and is immediately met by the police. A young man has drowned in the pond. Was it an accident or murder? 

But the birthday party goes ahead. Then, just after midnight, everyone gathers for a champagne toast...and one of the guests falls down dead. The police are baffled, and there is a whole party full of suspects. 

When it comes to someone adding the extra ingredient of poison to her own precious recipes, Jenny isn't going to take it lying down. She has a reputation to protect. 

Jenny Starling won't stop until the murderer is found. 

Perfect for fans of classic whodunits by authors like Agatha Christie, LJ Ross, TE Kinsey and J. R. Ellis.

The Birthday Mystery

This is the first mystery book I have read and thoroughly enjoyed the cooking and the way the murder was solved, with lots of guessing as the story unfolded. The narration was very good.

VERY easy to guess the murderer and fat shaming

So this mess you could see a mile away. You know who it was 1/4 into it. Also, this author kept talking about how fat the main character was. I mean won’t shut up about it. Having to choice a steady chair for her size... and all of that. Really? According to the author she’s a size 18. I’m a size 16 and I don’t break any damn chairs. C’mon.
This author needs to about the sh*te of all plot not the size or the character.

Too Many Points of View

This book was not bad, but I didn't think it was that good either.... the main issue I had with it was that it switched POV from one sentence to the next. Not one scene to the next, or one chapter to the next. You were literally in Person A's head for their thought/sentence, and then in Person B's head for their thoughts/sentence, and sometimes Person C would chime in, too. Too many POV's that didn't contribute to the story. I just didn't care for that type of storytelling.
Story on the whole was ok, a bit slow at times. I did not see "whodunnit" early on as others say they did (and I read a lot of mysteries). On the whole the book was a bit "meh" for me.

Easy

Classic English murder mystery. Lots of suspects, evidence and theories. Wasn't fooled, figured out the murderer from an old Perry Mason episode. Putting the pieces together from there figured out motive, a bit more tricky but obvious. Love Faith Martin books, well written and always a challenge.
