Publisher's Summary

Richard is a middle-aged Englishman who runs a B&B in the Vallée de Follet. Nothing ever happens to Richard, and really, that’s the way he likes it.

Until scandal erupts in the nearby town of Saint-Sauver when its famous restaurant is downgraded from three Michelin stars to two. The restaurant is shamed, the town is in shock, and the leading goat cheese supplier drowns himself in one of his own pasteurization tanks. Or does he?

Valérie d’Orçay, who staying at the B&B while house-hunting in the area, isn’t convinced that it’s a suicide. Despite his misgivings, Richard is drawn into Valérie’s investigation, and finds himself becoming a major player.

Funny and enjoyable

Dry-wit humor abounds in this highly enjoyable read. The often absurd situational comedy is on point. The characters and setting charm. Sometimes trying to follow who did what and why can be a bit confusing and you feel a bit like the befuddled Richard Ainsworth, but all is explained in the end, wrapped up and in fact teed up for the next installment. I will look forward to the continuing adventures of Richard and Valerie!

Completely charming and yet intriguing throughout

Well read by the author who was able to give the dialogue perfectly. So important with this nonchalant type of humor.

I hope there will be more

I absolutely love this series and the humor. Thoroughly enjoyable. The characters alone are fascinating enough.

C’est superb!!

Death and Fromage picks up from where the previous book left and it did not disappoint!
The combination of intrigue, mystery, comedy, well rounded characters and brilliant writing makes this a real treat. I can’t recommend it enough.

love it

I have read both this book and Death and Croissants in the last few days, both delightful, amusing and just what I needed to take my mind off the world around us. Was a bit dubious about the narrator to begin with but very quickly succumbed to him absolutely being Richard. I really want to listen to the next one because it's raining, not particularly warm and I would love to curl up with a good book which demands nothing of me but to enjoy, so hurry up Ian, please.

What?

A ridiculously complicated plot as to who killed who and why. Laced with personalised knowledge of living in France and of the French population. All the participants were brought to life by his variety of accents and voices.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.

An absolute joy!

My husband is dyslexic and finds reading a chore, so audio books are a real boon to us. Finding books we both enjoy listening to at bedtime can be a challenge, but Ian's books are perfect.

I love the fact that Ian reads the book himself. He acts the parts beautifully and the characters really come alive.

The stories are always a mix of farce, fun and frolics, as well as murder mystery. Ian makes murder hysterically funny. We're supposed to be listening to relax before sleep, but I often end up hooting with laughter. He has a dry humour that just works.

I can't recommend this book enough. I thoroughly enjoyed it and refreshingly, I had no clue whodunnit!

Another witty cosy murder mystery in rural France!

Really pleased to see these characters return in a second book and I can't wait for more! Glad to see more fromage than croissants in the first book. The author narrates his own book so perfectly too

A great follow up to death and croissants - cleverly written and impressively narrated with great comic timing! I would love to see this on the big screen…

Entertaining, original and beautifully read

Excellent, even better than the previous book which I enjoyed immensely. Mystery with no gore or cheesiness (apart from the fromage). I like the characters and look forward to meeting them again.
