Narrator Sandra Prinsloo is perfect as Tannie Maria, a middle-aged Afrikaans advice columnist at the "Klein Karoo Gazette." Tannie Maria is enjoying a quiet life of cooking and eating--her two favorite reasons to be alive--when a letter pleading for help leads her into a murder investigation. Prinsloo is excellent at portraying the story's many diverse characters and perfectly captures the serious scenes as well as the comedic ones. The South African/Afrikaans words and accent are a delight to listen to, although listeners may strain to fully understand in places. The glossary included in the original book would have been a nice addition to the audio version. The audiobook is completed by a reading of Tannie Maria's recipes, which all sound delicious.
