    Absolutely Delightful

    Chef Maurice is always looking for trouble and Hamilton has got to be one of my favorite characters in a very long time.

    English Cosy Mystery, Poirot-like detective!

    Chef Maurice is a fun character to base a series on. He's eccentric, much like Agatha Christie's Poirot, a man out of his element, with his own culture and eccentric habits. He is strong-minded, and not bound by the rules of convention. The Chef loves his life as a chef but he also embraces the excitement of a mystery to solve. "He had truffles to find, a new four-legged friend to train, and now a murder to solve. Cooking was all very well, but he felt he could do with a little more mental stimulation at this point in his life." Careful to follow cozy/cosy conventions, there is no vulgarity, no violence in-scene, there is light humor, and there is even some romance for minor characters. We get the traditional gathering of the suspects at the end, when the Chef reveals the killer and the motive. There is a strong supporting cast, including the truffle-hunting miniature pig, and the Chef's best friend and neighbor, who is the amateur detective's confident. Well-edited, and well-written with excellent use of the omniscient narrator, the book is entertaining and laced with sweet humor, especially when portraying the point of view of the animals. I received a review-copy. The Chef Maurice series is one that will appeal to fans of Christie's Poirot, and of English cosy mystery TV shows like Midsomer Murder, and Rosemary and Thyme.

    Great read

    A good who done it mystery. This was a comfortable easy read. I like the development of the characters and loved Hamilton's side of the story! Can't wait to read more in the series.
