Reviewed by: Tina


There's fishy business going on in Wrensdale arcade, housing a group of shops in the Berkshires reminisant of an old English borough. The shop owners are all in some sort of turmoil over who could have killed clock shop owner, Phil Turnbull . Phil was up in arms over the other shop owners signing a petition so a new comic book store merchant would not set up shop in the arcade. Owner of Lambert's Fish and Chips ,Bea vows not to sign the petition. When Bea becomes the prime suspect in Phil's murder, her co worker Talia proudly comes to her rescue and decides to try to do some of her own detecting to try to reel in a killer.

Talia has a history at Lambert's Fish and Chips and she has worked there since high school. She loves Bea and her husband, Howie who is recovering in the hospital from an infection from knee surgery. When Bea finally forces Phil out of her restaurant when he presses about Bea signing the petition Bea threatens to fry him in oil. Then Bea and Talia discover a murdered Phil inside his store bludgeoned with a knife with a trace of fish on it. But in her heart of hearts Talia does not believe that Bea had any thing to do with Phil's death.

Talia has some personal issues to deal with herself, with her ex, Chet, her co worker, Whitnee and coming to grips with the selling of her Nana's house that Talia is currently staying in with the only bright spot being a cute little calico cat that suddenly appears out of no where in Talia's life. All the while continuing to help Bea out temporarily in Lamberts while Howie is in the hospital. Talia digs into Phil's life and discovers that Phil has his own secrets and many people who wanted him dead. Talia makes it her duty to catch this murderer hook, link and sinker.

A mouth watering, crack up of a first in a series. Attention grabbing from the very first page. Fillet of Murder reels you in and does not let go. Talia is a firecracker of a ametur sleuth with a passion for cooking and finding the truth. Two fine qualities if I do say so. The actual killer was unexpected will leave you stunned. Bea is one of the most heartwarming characters with her quick British wit she is also among some other heartwarming characters in the book.When Talia works her magic at the deep fryer it had me craving what she made it it will for you too !!!!!

  15. I have been entering forever and never won anything here, . Publishing my email has become hazardous as since publishing it here I am receiving a deluge of spam. Prior to that my email was completely private. I heard this was a fabulous cozy so will try one more time then unsubscribe. itsacatslife17@yahoo.com I think after the contest that all our comments should be archived where they cannot be read by spammers. Its a great invasion of privacy and now has caused me a lot of problems with spam that never existed prior to publishing it here as necessary for the contest.
