A fun read featuring quirky characters and tasty recipes kept me entertained for a rainy afternoon. I'm looking forward to this author's next book already.

I liked this book about party planner Joanna Christie. She is working on the wedding of a particularly obnoxious bridezilla. I disliked the bride to be and almost cheered when she was murdered at the wedding rehearsal. I loved the other characters, sympathized with the groom to be, and rooted for Joanna throughout the book. This is a strong first novel of what promises to be an interesting series.

In Sickness and in Death by Alana Ling is the 1st book in the Murder, She Tasted series.  Joanna Christie is a party planner who has a unique condition called visual-gustatory synaesthesia, where she can taste people.  Each person has a unique flavor, some good and some bad.  Joanna is working on bridezilla's, Poppy, wedding in her hometown of Haven-on-Sea, England.  When everything is going smoothly, Joanna finds Poppy murdered at the wedding rehearsal.  To save her business, Joanna is determined to find the killer.  This book was a fun quick read that I enjoyed.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.  I recommend this book for cozy mystery lovers.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

A fun to read and really enjoyable cozy mystery. There's an interesting plot, a likeable cast of characters and it's a very pleasant read.
I hope to read soon other instalments in this series.
Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC

This book is a great start to what seems to be a fun, quirky series. I usually don't like fluffy sort books like this as I call them. This book though is a great quick read after you've read a darker novel. The main character is a party planner who has to deal with an obnoxiously rude bride to be. When that unbearable bride is murdered at her wedding rehearsal there is a mystery to be solved. It is certainly a lot to handle for a party planner who risks losing her business now because of said murder. Oh, did I mention she has an ex husband to deal with, a mother not on her side, and now she has to play detective? You'll love it!

Interesting twist on the usual baking cozies. Fun, quirky, and unique characters that kept my attention throughout. Love to know some of them in real life. Plot kept me interested and will be looking for more in this new series. Wonderful start.
