From The Salty Taste of Murder:

The food here is to die for....

Thirty-year-old Allie Treadwell is a singleton. She's a foodie, and a runner. A restaurant reviewer by day, and a Netflix aficionado by night.

Even if it doesn’t make her the most popular dinner guest in the charming Southern town of Lanai, Georgia, Allie’s reviews are always honest.

And her latest is no different from any other.

But Allie’s review isn’t the only thing to hit the newsstand. The restaurant’s owner and Allie’s one-time high school nemesis, Jessica Hayes, is found murdered. When Jessica’s husband, Miller, is labeled the prime suspect, Allie’s convinced the police are mistaken.

As if dodging the bad press while she works to clear Miller’s name isn't enough, one false step could put the real killer onto her.

Can Allie clear Miller’s name without winding up with the next obituary?

Romance, recipes, murders

These three novellas are a good value purchase if you like cozy mysteries without swearing, gore, sex or cliffhangers. Set in a small town in Georgia, they have a strong sense of place. Allie is a likable main character whose struggles with finances, romance, friendships and work provide context for the murders which she stumbles on and quickly solves. The stories themselves are interspersed with descriptions of yummy sounding recipes. Clark's neutral US-accent is sometimes a bit flat.

Foodie Fun

I enjoyed these three cozy mysteries. They were short fun mysteries. Nothing too complex but they were enjoyable.

Good enjoyable

They are fun, and good enjoyment to read. I liked the characters, and Detective Javier being understanding when Allie investigates. The audio of these three was brought to life by Angel Clark.

Narrator or computer voice?

This trilogy was completely destroyed for me by the incredibly inept narration.
I had to put it at 1.5 speed just to be able to listen to it without screaming out loud. It’s never good to scream out loud when you’re listening to an audiobook because nobody knows the problem but you!

Chef Veronica Mars?

A truly fun foodie murder mystery that reminded me of veronica mars, if she was a foodie, with a little romance as well. Wonderful narration that brings you into the story. A wonderful boxset of the books.

Note at the time of this review Audible did not have chapter titles for this title.

This title was provided free for review, however, the thoughts and opinions of this review are my own.

Disappointing

After 'Marvels, Mochas and Murder' I was looking forward to other books by Christine Zane Thomas. This one, however, is not recommendable at all. Not only because the narrating is highly annoying (unnatural, constantly highlighting irrelevant parts), but also because these stories were very predictable, superficial harlequin-like, plus the main character makes illogical choices all the time with lame reasoning... Really, save your money.

Don’t waste your time

Really terrible narration, harlequin romance style and lack of plot. Men only valued for muscle and “being nice”.

Delightful Listen!

Foodie Files Cozy Mysteries is three books in one by Christine Zane Thomas. I found myself pulled into these stories. I loved the imagery, found the recipes to sound scrumptious, enjoyed the murder mystery and the romance. I liked how the books were woven together with characters. Angel Clark brought the characters to life. She gives them distinguishable voices, so I know who is speaking.. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
