Wonderfully evocative and enjoyable
Congratulations to Audible for selecting such a great narrator. This book would be hudgely irritating without a genuine South African narrator and it is a joy to hear all the local vernacular and vocabulary correctly pronounced for a change. Moreover Sandra Prinsloo has delighted my wife and myself with a compelling delivery - much more from this narrator please.
The story itself is wonderfully evocative of South Africa. It somehow manages to unite its warmth and friendliness at the same time it exposes its more brutish side. Good story and believable characters that readers can care about.

A novel take on the crime story
A gentle listen full of wonderful characters, humour, romance and mouth watering recipes!
Tannie Marie is very warm and likeable and the idea of an agony aunt who issues advice in the form of recipes works so well. I loved hearing the story told in the authentic language, this narrator really brought it alive.
Will definitely be trying some of the recipes!
