    Foul mouthed American actress Martina Manderly is playing Jane Austen in a period costume drama shooting on location in Bath Predictably the spoiled bullying Martina alienates fellow actors crew — even extras — and promptly gets herself stabbed to deathPredictable unfortunately pretty much describes Menu for Murder JG Goodhind’s fourth Honey Driver mystery novel Honey the owner of the Green River Hotel in Bath and police liaison for the Bath Hotel Association once again joins handsome if conceited Detective Inspector Steve Doherty to discover who done it The story plods on — although with occasional funny scenes and two rare interesting new characters in the cases of Zoë Valley and Perdita Moody — until it reveals an implausible murderer and then ends with a ridiculously unrealistic final denouement If you skip Menu for Murder you won’t have missed much of a dish That said narrator Patience Tomlinson as always is first rate

    I only read it because it has 'Jane Austen' in its title How disappointing

    Killing Jane Austen is a delightfully rollicking murder mystery that begins in Bath when a film crew comes to town to make a new film on the legendary romantic novelist Jane Austen When the film's star Martyna Manderley is found dead and Bath's hotelier Honey Driver is caught holding a bloodied manuscript Detective Inspector DI Steve Doherty is called in to catch the culprit before his love interest is accused of murder In a plot that twists and turns with everyone with a motive for the killing from the production company to the director and the star's wealthy fiancé Honey Driver the Crime Liaison Officer for the Hotels Association joins forces with DI Doherty to unmask the murderer but the list of suspects is long and clues few The story vibrates with wit humor and sexual repartee as Honey Drive and her detective not only get drawn into a tantalizing mystery but begin exploring their romantic attractionOften the atmosphere of the plot becomes slow and ponderous as Honey and DI Doherty deviate from solving the murder to uestioning any clues while consuming copious amounts of drink and food Yet although the story seems filled with a labyrinth of dead ends the ending is nonetheless surprising and amusing as Honey's Chef challenges the killerJean G Goodhind creates characters in Killing Jane Austen that are unconventional with all their uirks flaws faults and strengths like Honey Driver a middle aged woman who keeps insisting she needs to diet because she loves to eat Often slowed down by a bossy mother who has designs on her sexy corset and a grown daughter she's feisty free spirited and impulsive With a uestioning mentality and a love of a mystery she uickly insinuates herself into the case uncovering clues in the unlikeliest places Honey's romantic interest the indomitable Steve Doherty is a tough shrewd detective with a sharp sense of humor Professionally he tends to be unruffled and controlled until thwarted which makes him moody Martyna Manderley is the arrogant rude sharp tongued and self indulgent actress engaged to the wealthy pretentious and lying degenerate Brett Coleridge These personalities and add to the drama and spice of an intriguing mysteryThis novel which I won through Goodreads Giveaways is thoroughly enjoyable light reading; a story filled with fun and humor set against the backdrop of a film production in Bath I'd rate it 35 if the scale allowed

    Wieder geschieht ein Mord im idyllischen Bath diesmal an einer gemeinen unbeliebten Schauspielerin die die Hauptrolle in einem Film über Jane Austen spieltAuch hier ist es von Vorteil die vorherigen Teile im Vorfeld zu lesen wenn man in die Beziehungskisten rund um die Hauptfiguren eintauchen möchte Allerdings ist auch dieser Fall in sich geschlossen und kann somit auch alleinstehend gelesen werdenDiesmal ist Honey mehr oder weniger direkt am Ort des Geschehens und somit natürlich zusammen mit Doherty wieder auf MörderjagdDie Suche nach dem Mörder ist spannend und gut zum Miträtseln geeignet Allerdings muss der Leser meiner Meinung nach spätestens als ein zweiter Mord geschieht seine Vermutungen nochmal komplett überdenken Die Auflösung an sich ist dann in sich logisch und überraschend allerdings auch etwas enttäuschend weil diese sehr schnell abgehandelt wirdEndlich entwickelt sich auch die Beziehung zwischen Honey und Doherty einen Schritt weiter allerdings immer noch im SchneckentempoDer Schreibstil ist gewohnt flüssig und das Büchlein liest sich so sehr schnell weg Ähnlich wie im Vorgängerband Mord zur Geisterstunde tauchen zwar auch hier viele verschiedene Personen auf die allerdings diesmal besser auseinanderzuhalten sind und es somit zu weniger Verwirrungen kommtInsgesamt ein netter fast unblutiger Krimi Deshalb 4 Sterne

    Now I am no writer and I feel very guilty rubbishing off someone else’s printed word hence do not judge me when I say that “Menu for Murder” was an extremely painful read It had bad language feeble characters and an extremely silly plot At times the writing was so bad that I wanted to cry When I say bad language I dont mean incorrect or poorly formed sentence It was just bad story telling You know how people say that if you explain an joke you have killed it Well thats what Goodhind does with every punchline in the book And then there is so much sex related content – victorian corsets homosexuals TVs sexual deviancies its all there in one book I am no prude but it all becomes irrelvant and boring after sometime I do like my detectives to be strong independent woman but honestly Honey Driver is the most annoying character ever Everytime she opened her mouth I went – please stop talking I just managed to finish the book and I swear I will never read JG Goodhind again Ever

    I received this book for free from Goodreads first reads in exchange for an honest review Oh My God I hated this book Grade schoolers can write better than this Seriously It is like the author has no concept of proper sentence structure And extremely limited vocabulary At one point I counted five Honey sat in stunned silence on one page There are dozens of tangents that have nothing to do with the storyline The characters were one dimensional the plot was stupid beyond belief the police were incompetent the sex wasn't sexy the mystery wasn't mysterious I can find nothing redeeming I only finished it because I felt an obligation since the publisher sent me a free copy Sorry publisher I hope you didn't advance her too much
