Crime novel review, A Taste of Death

Just read a great book, A Taste of Death by HV Coombs. It’s hard to classify, cosy running to charming crime with a hint of grittiness maybe? Whatever it was, I found it hugely enjoyable and raced to the end.

Take one chef with a past and a passion for yoga and qigong trying to make a go of his new cafe in a small village. Add two murders, a cast of believable and well drawn villagers including two young sidekicks, a beautiful woman, an unlikely tarot card reader and a dissolute earl. Simmer for a while. The result is a confection of laugh out loud out moments with a very satisfactory twist which leaves you wanting more. Let’s hope HV Coombs obliges.
