"Tannie Maria writes the Love Advice and Recipe Column for the Klein Karoo Gazette - words of wisdom for the lovelorn, along with a recipe for something delicious that may help. But Tannie Maria's own problems resist her attempts to self-medicate, even with an amazing peanut-butter coffee chocolate cake. Her new relationship with Detective Henk Kannemeyer continues to be haunted by the memory of her abusive husband, and she decides to check out a PTSD counselling group run by a man they call the Satanic Mechanic. But then someone is murdered-poisoned with mustard sauce-before her eyes, and Tannie Maria's quest for healing takes a more investigative turn. Which means her intimate relationship with Henk is about to get professional. And more importantly, very complicated."

Library Journal Review

Tannie Maria, the much-loved advice and recipes columnist at the Klein Karoo Gazette, has PTSD. And when she and her boyfriend Det. Henk Kannemeyer try to take their relationship to a new level, true love is interrupted by flashbacks. Then her friend Slimkat is poisoned right in front of her. It is all too much, so she finds herself a haven, a therapy group run by a man known as the -Satanic Mechanic. Alas, all too soon, violence and murder invade the group. Fortunately, Maria's personal defenses, a warm appreciation of the natural world, the support of her good friends, and, of course, her own excellent cooking help her to triumph over evil. Sarah Prinsloo's reading is outstanding, particularly her ability to distinguish among and enunciate the many different accents, making it possible for English-only listeners to figure out the meaning of Afrikaans words from context. Listeners are in for a very pleasant surprise. VERDICT Recommended for fans of well-written mysteries.-I. Pour-El, Des Moines Area Community Coll., Boone, IA © Copyright 2017.

The second in what I hope will be a long series by this author I was as enthralled by this mystery crime novel and the characters in it as I was by the first book. Tannie Maria is still dealing with her issues from an abusive marriage. Her fellow crime investigators Jess and Policeman boyfriend Henk are further developed in this story. And of course all through the story there is food glorious food which helps each different situation. I almost put on weight just reading it. Another spellbinding story can't wait for the next one.
