Corinna Chapman is concerned about her two assistants, Gossamer and Kylie not eating properly. Then there's the strange cult which has started up which appears to think that eating is sinful not to speak of the individual found in the park almost dead from malnutrition. In fact not eating seems to be the fashion at the moment. Then Starshine, Corinna's estranged hippie mother turns up on her doorstep, and Corinna feels that her life cannot get any worse.

Along with handsome lover, Daniel, who has no problems with enjoying his food, Corinna decides to try and find out what is happening in her neighbourhood. In the process she hopes to find her father, Sunshine, and reunite him with her mother in order to get her mother out of her hair. This is a complex and entertaining mystery which does deal with serious subjects but also has some light hearted moments and many amusing incidents and conversations.

I love Corinna - she is a lady after my own heart who enjoys her food and drink. I also like the other characters especially the eccentric residents of Insula - the apartment block in which Corinna lives and works. The book is well written and the author really brings the characters and the city in which they live to life. There is the added bonus of recipes at the end of the book. This is the third book in the series but they can really be read in any order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful read, 5 Jun 2014

These novels are the perfect escapist reading and a great pleasure. They would make a superb television series (but where would they find a size 20 actress to play the lead - remember the sage words of old man Steptoe: "I 'ate skinny birds"!) and will be loved by anyone who has enjoyed the author's "Miss Fisher" detective stories. For me, perfect holiday reading and a great antidote to the Scandinavian blood-and-violence school of detective fiction.

I am addicted to Kerry Greenwood books! Love the plots, style of writing and characters. Love the recipes included at the end of each book, too - bonus. I will say the same for all Corinna Chapman and Phryne Fisher books

4.0 out of 5 stars Gourmet Dining, 16 Oct 2014

Another quirky story! It is the usual group of people, with a few newcomers and several different storylines merging into one. Corinna's own Mother and Father appear, together with the cats, a strange religious order and the usual goths and witches. Quite entertaining and a peaceful read!
