A Kensington Palace Chef Mystery
by Nell Hampton
Crooked Lane publishes lots of cozy mysteries. They have found a niche here as their books generally do appeal to the target audience, myself included, as a cozy can offer me a welcome bit of escape.
One thing that I very much enjoyed was this book’s setting. It brought back memories of being at Kensington Palace’s Orangery. Those who have not been, can enjoy a virtual visit.
Uh-oh, the lovely setting, of course becomes the location for a murder. What happened and how does a lemon meringue pie fit in? Read this one to find out.
Note that this is the second in the series. Readers may want to look for the first book, Kale to the Queen.
This book will be especially enjoyed by bakers and Anglophiles.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
Praise for Lord of the Pies:
“A well-crafted plot with plenty of surprises…This contemporary cozy is as light and delectable as one of Carrie Ann’s meringue toppings.”
“Most likely to appeal to mystery-romance fans entranced by PBS’s The Great British Baking Show.”
