Publisher's Summary

From a number one best-selling author: a fresh and funny romantic mystery series about a witty, down-to-earth heroine with a job you've never seen before....

Being an undercover poison taster for the rich and famous might sound glamorous, but for Isobel Avery it means stomaching bad clients and even worse coffee. The one side of the job that lives up to expectations is the money. Which is just as well for Izzy, since she needs an awful lot of it. Who knew when she made a lifelong commitment to a man that it would be one year living with him and the rest of her life paying for it? 

But even her scoundrel ex-husband doesn't look so bad compared to her new client. He's competent, condescending, and annoyingly attractive, and Izzy doesn't know whether to sleep with him or poison him herself. Throw in a loan shark, a nosy neighbor, and a murder attempt, and Izzy will have her work cut out for her. 

Perfect for fans of Camilla Chafer, Jana DeLeon, Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Bond, Julie Moffett, and JB Lynn.

A new idea!

Ok, I have not come across a poison expert before. This is a light, but very interesting mystery, with my favourite narrator (she has a lovely voice and speaks normally, with no wierd pauses, inflections or emphasis - why do other narrators do that? It is beyond irritating!)
I thoroughly recommend this book. I have just downloaded book 3, so it is all good so far.

I love this series!

The first in the series Eat Pray Die is a fun cozy mystery built around a truly unique premise. Who knew the Hollywood rich and famous needed taste testers? Izzy has moved from Australia to SoCal for an urgently needed job. Conner is her hunky boss, Arthur her roommate, Meow the cat, Mr Black the enforcer and Etta the spunky elderly neighbor (who I’m convinced is ex-CIA). All are delightful and add to the fun. Can't wait to listen to the other books.

FYI, for those who have listened to the original Eat Pray Die audio book the biggest change is that the characters finally have their proper accents. It is well worth a second credit.

Great!

Loved:
-The character's unique job, very clever.
-The Australian narrator; this is one of the rare books that are better listened to than read.
-The pacing was perfect. I have a short attention span and this kept me engaged.
-I couldn't tell who the murderer was.
-I liked our lead characters.

I would caution anyone though who is a bit conservative. There isn't much language, but sexual innuendos are often. There is no sex scene, but there are two foiled rape attempts that made me uncomfortable, so I skipped to the rescue portion. I really enjoyed it overall though and would recommend it.

Wow, what a ride!!!

Eat, Pray, Die has got to be the most unique murder mystery, without being a supernatural, I have read! What a way to make a living! Tasting food for the rich and famous for poison and to distinguish between the poisons! Meanwhile, she owes a loan shark a lot of money thanks to a creepy ex- husband, she is stalked by a creepy rich guy that likes to drug his victims...all while working a case pretending to be a girlfriend but really tasting his food. It is full of craziness and lots of fun!

You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs.....

There's a saying: You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find the handsome prince. That saying goes for books as well as men. I've listened to a lot of cozy mysteries looking for an author and series that is more than OK or pretty good. I've found them with Chelsea Field and this series. I fell in love with it from the beginning! The humor, the mysteries, Isabel's unique profession (where on earth did she come up with that?), and the bit of romance are exactly what I was looking for. Now that I've listened to all the available titles, I hope another one is forthcoming...soon!

Good Fun and Entertaining

I'm reviewing so the author Chelsea Field will know how much I have enjoyed listening to her books
Thank You :)

I'm not a writer so please excuse my personal review
I have now listened to the 4 books in the series and loved them all!
I enjoy listening to books like this, you know, where the author doesn't need to rely on sex and profanity to engage readers/listeners. I enjoyed the fun characters and the premise was in my mind very original ~ I've never thought about wickedly poisoning rivals but I do know I am looking forward to book #5. Perfect choice for the narrator, Saskia was brilliant!
