I'm so excited to be living in a small flat in Kensington Palace and working in one of the three kitchens the Duke and Duchess have.
The Duchess is hosting a bridal shower for my friend Penelope's sister. It seems they all went to college together and were quite chummy. I am tasked to cater the shower and think pies will be a wonderful way to celebrate spring and weddings.
But then the Duchess gets called away and the party is moved from the apartments to the Orangery. Since the Orangery has it's own head chef, this complicates things a bit.
In a gesture of good will, I leave a lemon curd pie for the staff. But the next morning a young man is found face first in the pie, dead.
This does not look good.
Especially since I was involved in the death of one of my assistance not a month before. Murder doesn't happen at the palace. Two murders in a row and fingers start to be pointed at the new girl.
Kale to the Queen is the first book in this series and has a paperback version out March, 13, 2018. If you haven't read it, here is a chance to do just that. At the end of April, Lord of the Pies releases and you get to see what a mess it is to find someone face down in your favorite lemon curd.
