'If you want a vivid, amusing and immensely enjoyable read about detection (and cooking) in an intriguing part of southern Africa, then this is the book for you. A triumph.' -- Alexander McCall Smith 'Recipes for Love and Murder is chock full of good food and interesting characters.' Kerry Greenwood 'A delightful debut, tender and funny. The mystery takes on the worldwide problem of abused women while revealing both the beauties and problems of South Africa. And the recipes will make you want to drop everything and start cooking.' STARRED Review, Kirkus 'This looks likes cosy crime - and it is both funny and sweet - but it has a hard edge and doesn't skirt the difficult subjects of South Africa's history and the region's huge problem with domestic violence. It is a culinary and linguistic treat too, packed with recipes and smatterings of Afrikaans.' Bookseller 'This is a murder mystery with plenty of humour...readers will find themselves smiling, chuckling and laughing out loud...A stunning debut.' BookMooch 'A clever, funny and warm-hearted debut crime novel from South Africa, that will make you laugh and cry.' Good Reading 'Andrew offers up engaging characters and a storyline with enough surprises to keep it interesting...Recipes for Love and Murder is easily digestible murder-mystery fare, with a love story or two thrown in for extra seasoning.' Otago Daily Times 'The exotic locale, the lovely patois and the heroine's unique sensibility make Ms. Andrew's Recipes a blue-ribbon winner.' Wall Street Journal, Best Books of 2015 'Mouth-watering descriptions of food and landscapes delivered in an Afrikaans patois produce a distinctly new kind of tea cozy, one just right for curling up on a cold winter afternoon while daydreaming about the heat of the African sun.' 'Funny, serious and touching.' New Zealand Listener 'I love a cozy mystery, particularly when food is involved...The murder and characters are compelling and I'm really enjoying reading about a country that I know only a little about.' Readings 'Andrews' writing is brutally honest, in the most charming way as she explores the different parts to Tannie's character and her past. You're going to find yourself mourning for Tannie and the life she had with Fanie, and hoping for good things for her moving forward.' Pop.edit.lit
