"A bright new talent makes her fiction debut with this first novel in a delicious crime series set in rural South Africa: a flavorful blend of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and Goldy Schulz, full of humor, romance, and recipes, and featuring a charming cast of characters. Tannie Maria ("tannie" meaning auntie, the respectful Afrikaans address for a woman older than you) is a middle-aged widow who likes to cook and eat. She shares her culinary love through her work as a recipe columnist for the local paper, until the Gazette decides its readers are hungrier for advice on matters of the heart than for lunch and dinner ideas. Tannie Maria doesn't like the change but soon discovers she has a knack and a passion for helping people. Of course, a recipe is always part of the remedy she offers. Assisting other people with their problems, Tannie Maria is eventually forced to face her own issues, especially when the troubles of those she helps touch on the pain of her own past like a woman who contacts her desperate to escape her abusive husband. When the woman is murdered, Tannie Maria becomes dangerously entwined in the investigation, despite the best efforts of a handsome detective named Kannemeyer, who is determined to keep her safe. Suddenly, this practical, down-to-earth woman is involved in something much more sinister than perfecting her chocolate cake recipe . . ." -- ONIX annotation.… (plus d'informations)

Tannie Maria works at small newspaper (the Gazette) in a small city in South Africa and writes a recipe column but is reassigned to write a “Dear Abbie” column. She turns out to have a knack helping people, in the middle-aged southern African way of Precious Ramotswe, and always includes a recipe in her advice. (“tannie’’ meaning auntie, the respectful Afrikaans address for a woman older than you)

Really, very clever. Would absolutely read a second. ( )

Too much unnecessary explanations & running on & on & on & on & on: in other words "Much Ado About Nothing".

I was immediately put off by the narrator's verboseness... would she ever just get to the point?

I have no idea what the author was trying to prove: She's "Literary"? She knows all about "Afrikaners" & being South African?

This book could have been wonderful had it been 200+ less pages.

The author was obviously out to prove herself as being culturally in the know via overkill.....

Even the recipes were difficult to read & follow....

Won't be wasting my time again on this author & her needless verbosity..... ( )

Recipes for Love and Murder is a delightful mystery set in Klein Karoo, Tanzania from Sally Andrew.

Tannie (Aunty) Marie is the Klein Karoo’s Gazette recipe columnist, but with recent budget cuts affecting the small three person newspaper, she is also tasked to take over the role of Agony Aunt. It’s a job Tannie Marie takes seriously, dispensing wisdom, and recipes, to suit any situation. However it is a letter from ‘Bereft Woman’ suffering at the hands of her abusive husband that greatly worries Tannie Marie, and when she learns of her death she is determined to see justice is done.

Sprinkled with Afrikaans words and phrases Andrew creates such a wonderful sense of both place, and character. Marie relies on her colleagues, and friends, Hattie and Jessie to help her investigate the murder, and meets a slightly over protective but well meaning, and handsome, detective.

Despite the delicious appeal of the recipes in this story, Andrew explores some sensitive issues, such as domestic violence, of which Marie was once a victim, PTSD, homosexuality and of course, murder..there is not just one but two by the end of the book, plus a kidnapping and a near miss for Tannie Marie.

While similarities can be drawn between this book and Alexander McCall Smith’s No.1 Lady Detective series set in Botswana, Recipes for Love and Murder has its own distinct charm, and I hope to read more from Sally Andrew ( )

Tani finds herself involved in a complex murder investigation. She and her friends intervene in the interrogation. They interrogate themselves, risking their lives to discover the murderer's identity. During the interrogation, Tani determines that it is never too late to gain a new love. This book recommended for such inclement weather since the end of the book also has a bonus of recipes that can be prepared. ( )

4 out of 4 I made it. I finished 4 books during the break  as I had originally  set out to do. Two of them were really enjoyable and the other two were OK, not terrible.  ( )

Advertised as murder and intrigue in a small Karoo town marinated in secrets, that’s exactly what it is. Tannie Maria is a small-town sleuth whose real passion is her food and how she makes it.
 
The timing of this charming new novel couldn’t be more propitious. At the end of a dismal year in South Africa, Recipes for Love and Murder slipped onto the shelves, leavening the beaten, bruised mood, a story redolent of community, of landscape, of friendship, of food. It is comfort reading.
