Death on the Menu by Emma Davis (Book 3 in the series)
Though part of a series, does well as a stand alone too.
Francesca has been asked to cater for a funeral supper for an eccentric rich businessman who has died.
He was an elderly man and the death was not considered suspicious until everyone who benefited from the
will gathered around. Clarence was not going to make it easy for the beneficiaries and he came up with
a treasure hunt with cryptic clues.
Francesca's friend Olivia had been Clarence's secretary and right hand man and all of them are appalled
at the greed displayed by the three children to fight and grasp their inheritance. Finding the dead body
of the eldest son whilst in pursuit of clues was unexpected but quite probable as the story winds on,
because it is becoming a no holds barred quest for the money.
A good story, Francesca and Adam her help mate in all things detective do a good job in this cosy.
