Review - Chef Maurice and the Bunny-Boiler Bake Off


Chef Maurice and the Bunny-Boiler Bake Off by J.A. Lang
The Third Chef Maurice Mystery

It's time for the Beakley Spring Fayre and, much to Chef Maurice's dismay, a celebrity chef has not only been invited, but as taken his place on the judging panel of the Bake Off! As Chef Bonvivant and Chef Maurice join together in their condemnation of Miranda Mathews, celebrity chef, PC Lucy has to deal with meeting Patrick's mother...and entering one of her not quite edible cakes in the competition.

I'm thrilled to see Chef Maurice, Hamilton, and the rest of the gang back in action. These characters jump off the page. Their actions are so true that, even in the face of almost farcical situations, they remain utterly believable. I want to spend time with them, I want to get to know them better, I want Chef Maurice to cook me a meal! The Chef Maurice Mystery series is just plain fun and this book is no exception.

Chef Maurice and the Bunny-Boiler Bake Off is another delightful romp in the Cotswolds. Author J.A. Lang combines the quintessential British village life with the temperamental world of chefs and stirs in a first rate mystery to create a fantastic read.
