On a peaceful morning in the English coastal town of St. Eves, a handsome stranger meets a gruesome end.
St. Eves is a town with real community spirit. It’s the kind of town where people leave their doors open from sunrise to sunset, allowing friends and neighbours to pop in for a chat and a nice cup of tea – no one’s ever too busy for a chat and a nice cup of tea in St. Eves.
However, that wonderful way of life is threatened following the arrival of strangers to the town. Not that that’s unusual, as St. Eves has a steady stream of visitors all year round. These strangers, though, are followed swiftly by murder.
As café-bar owner, Charlotte Denver takes up the challenge to help find the killer before they strike again, she uncovers a shocking plot that rocks the close-knit community to its core, and a twist in the tale that no one saw coming.
There’s a mystery to solve, along with engaging characters, a little romance, and recipes to try for yourself in Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse, the first book in the Charlotte Denver Cozy Mystery Series.
Please Note; This book is written in British English and contains no strong profanity, sex or graphic violence.
Molly Barda earned her Ph.D. in literature and creative writing from a top-ten doctoral program. After a year of fruitless job-hunting, she finally landed a job at remote Mahina State University (“Where Your Future Begins Tomorrow!”), in rural Hawaii. Teaching resume-writing. In the Business School.
Molly longs for working air conditioning. She sits on a yoga ball because there is no budget for office furniture. Her dean, unwilling to lose paying customers, won’t let her report cheating students.
But Molly’s determined to bloom where she’s planted, enjoy the tropical beauty of her new home, and stay out of trouble until she gets tenure.
Forced to attend the Student Retention Office’s summer retreat, Professor Molly brings her game of buzzword bingo to fend off boredom. When a serial harasser collapses face-first into his haupia cheesecake, the event goes from dull to disastrous.
Now Molly has to fight to keep her best friend out of the worst kind of trouble — and herself off the unemployment line.
