~Shelley’s Book Case
…a humorous cozy featuring Chef Maurice and his friend and restaurant critic, Arthur Wordington-Smythe. This is the first book in this series and I LOVE IT!
~Bab’s Book Bistro
I am enamored of this new series which delivers unique characters in a charming setting with a realistic restaurant background.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
It makes me want to go hunt for truffles but I probably find the deadly mushrooms instead. This Chef Maurice character makes me laugh, hungry and want to own a pig.
…very humorous and filled with many eccentric characters.
~Melina’s Book Blog
As a lover of British comedies, I was quite at home with the appearance of a French chef in a small town (how do you say, “‘Allo, ‘Allo”). I was not prepared for the laugh-out-loud humor … but I LOVED IT!
Chef Maurice is really awesome, especially for people that like foodie fiction…this British cozy is really not one to miss.
~A Chick Who Reads
It ‘s a fun and engaging cozy mystery, an easy, fast and exciting reading. I read it in one day, I could not put it down.
This book reminds me of the hysterical, madcap adventures of Agatha Raisin, and ends with a reveal right out of an Agatha Christie novel. Just add it to your reading list now…you won’t regret it!
~Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries & Meows
This is a quick read that is laugh out loud funny.
~Tea and A Book
The story was really cute and funny and I think any foodie mystery lover will like it!
I love British Humor and author J.A Lang writes it brilliantly with Chef Maurice, his friend author and his fun loving pig Hamilton. It is written seamlessly and very humorous, with a dash of murder and abundance of food and a mystery filled with wit.

It’s autumn in the Cotswolds, and Chef Maurice is facing a problem of mushrooming proportion.
Not only has his wild herb and mushroom supplier, Ollie Meadows, missed his weekly delivery—he’s missing vital signs too, when he turns up dead in the woods near Beakley village.
Soon, Chef Maurice is up to his nose in some seriously rotten business—complete with threatening notes, a pignapping, and an extremely well-catered stake-out.
Can he solve Ollie’s murder before his home-made investigation brings the killer out for second helpings?
