Murder and Romance in the Karoo – Recipes for Love and Murder: A Tannie Maria Mystery by Sally Andrew
Umuzi is proud to present Sally Andrew’s debut novel, Recipes for Love and Murder: A Tannie Maria Mystery, coming in October:
Meet Tannie Maria: She’s 50-something, short and soft (perhaps a bit too soft in the wrong places) with brown curls and untidy Afrikaans. She is also the agony aunt for the local paper, the Klein Karoo Gazette. One day, her life takes a sinister turn when a woman in the area is murdered and she becomes entangled in the investigation … to the intense irritation of a handsome local policeman.
But what else will this amateur detective uncover in a small town marinated in secrets?
Warm, poignant and entertaining, Andrew’s delightful heroine blends together intrigue, romance and cooking in this irresistible new mystery, complete with a few mouth-watering recipes.
“A triumph.” – Alexander McCall Smith
