Bruno is a wonderful character surrounded by fascinating villagers. A great who-done-it that will keep you guessing until the end. I enjoy this narrator from another series written by Alexander McCall Smith. He has a good range of voices and keeps me interested.

Bruno Bravo!

This story starts off slowly and seems to be more about gormet cuisine, but eventually it draws the reader in. By the end, one thinks, "That was really good!"
