Publisher's Summary

In Cherry Hinton's first case, she discovers that it takes a reality TV star to catch a reality TV murderer.

When Kenny Thorpe, a contestant on Expose TV's Big Blubber, the hot new celebrity weight-loss show, is murdered on live television in front of three million viewers, the case seems pretty watertight. After all, everyone saw Barry do it, didn't they?

Cherry Hinton knows there's more to this than meets the eye. As an investigative reporter, she went undercover on dating show Caravan of Love...but after getting in too deep with one of the other contestants, she was caught knicker-less in front of the nation. Humiliated, fired and heartbroken, she has fled to Brentwood, where she opens a cake shop and tries to forget all about Expose.

Until Kenny Thorpe's sister walks into her shop with a letter that turns Cherry's world upside down. Is Barry innocent? How is infamous gangster Leon Solent involved? Is Expose to blame, and is there a killer still on the loose?

Cherry is the only one in a position to find out.

Critic Reviews

"If you’re in need of comic distraction (as we all are...) this is extremely funny." (Harriet Tyce, author of international best seller Blood Orange)

"A scathingly satirical look at reality TV and society's hypocritical standards, Cherry Slice might not be as nice as pie, but its gooey centre is our intrepid P.I Cherry Hinton...I think I love her!" (Lucy V. Hay, author of Never Have I Ever)

Essex slang????

I couldn't even finish this book. The use of so much Essex slang makes it incomprehensible to anyone outside of Essex or maybe the UK if you understand it. I couldn't decipher the meaning of most of it, and had to re-listen to it over and over to get context. I know we have our own fair share of slang in Australia but this was just too much for me. Im sure the performance was fine for the book. But I couldn't get past the grammar. Yes I realise it's set in Essex I just didn't expect so much local slang to be used.

Not for me

I enjoy listening to new books by unfamiliar authors, but this one was not for me. The characters are so annoying that I had a difficult time finishing the book. I finally skipped to the end to hear the resolution. I wish I hadn't because it was also trite and nonsensical. I won't be getting the next book in this series.
