Tannie Maria writes the love advice and recipe column for the Klein Karoo Gazette: words of wisdom for the lovelorn, along with a recipe for something helpful and delicious. Her own relationship with detective Henk Kannemeyer is still haunted by the memory of her abusive late husband, so she decides to check out a counseling group run by a man they call the Satanic Mechanic. When a local land-rights activist is poisoned before her eyes, Tannie Maria's quest for healing takes a more investigative turn.
When Slimkat the Bushman's life is threatened by an unknown adversary, recipe writer-turned-crime fighter Tannie Maria becomes embroiled in a nature-reserve land dispute among Bushmen descendants, diamond miners, and cattle companies.

I agree with most of what has been said in the previous reviews. I actually decided to give it a read because I have some South African friends. I was able to get them to interpret the local language. A light read with a loving & soft feel that was pleasant to experience. Well done Sally Andrew.

What a wonderful surprise this book was! I read murder mysteries - they are my go-to-bed-relaxers. I generally read cozys or, at least, women (not so likely to be gory). Just grabbed this off the shelf -woman, humorous cover - okay. It is a treat on so many levels - language, culture, food/recipes and most of all - the psychology of it all --- pure magic.
