In Murder On The Menu, the first book in the Celebrity Mystery Series, author Zanna Mackenzie weaves an entertaining cozy mystery tale that will keep the reader engaged and wanting more.

Lizzie Carter leaves London after breaking up with her journalist boyfriend to restart her life at a farmhouse that she inherited from her aunt and uncle in the scenic English countryside of Cumbria. She gets a job as a waitress at a local restaurant called The Veggies, but when her new boss and celebrity Chef Armand is found stabbed in the kitchen, Lizzie finds herself on top of the murder suspect list. Lizzie is determined to clear her name, and with the help of neighbor and suspended special agent Jack Mathis, they work together to investigate the murder in order to find the real killer.

I have always been a fan of cozy mystery stories, and Murder On The Menu is a fun whodunit tale that did not disappoint me. This is an exciting and fast-paced tale that has enough mystery, suspense, humor, romance, intriguing twists and turns, and a list of suspects that will easily keep the reader engaged and guessing who the real killer is until the end. I enjoyed following Lizzie and Jack's investigative adventure, their witty banter, humorous trials and tribulations, and subtle romantic scenes easily kept my interest and wanting more. I look forward to reading their adventure in the series.

If you want to pass the weekend reading an enjoyable cozy mystery, then look no further, Murder On The Menu is the book for you!
