This story combined two loves of mine - food and mystery! Set in a castle the story couldn't have been more appealing to me.
One day after Jenny takes up an appointment as the cook in this castle, Ava the governess is found dead stabbed through the heart. Alibis abound, everyone is accounted for but it is an inside job. The Detective Inspector who is sent to find out who did this murder is clueless where to start but Jenny has a head start as she knows the atmosphere is not quite right and immediately ferrets out information to show that almost everyone other than her master and mistress have a reason to dislike the governess.
Whether dislike is enough to murder someone has got to be seen and methodically Jenny goes about uncovering the real culprit.
Very entertaining, very chatty and a lovely light read.
