"Recipes for Love and Murder"

Sally Andrew lives on a nature reserve in South Africa's Klein Karoo with her partner, Bowen Boshier, and other wildlife, including a secretive leopard. Her background is in adult and environmental education, and she has published a number of nonfiction books.

Andrew applied the Page 69 Test to Recipes for Love and Murder: A Tannie Maria Mystery, her first novel, and reported the following:
This page shows part of Tannie Maria's response to a man who wrote a letter to her 'Love Advice and Recipe Column' in the Klein Karoo Gazette. He needs help with a gal he fancies, but also mentions he doesn't know how to boil an egg. The man's relationship issue is quickly solved, but the egg boiling recipe is a little more intricate...

Page 69 also catches some of Maria's conversation with Detective Henk Kannemeyer (the tall detective with the chestnut moustache), and gives a taste of the murder and intrigue that flavours the book.
