Recipes For Love & Murder: Series 1 (DVD)
Kind, quiet Tannie Maria (Maria Doyle Kennedy, Outlander, Orphan Black) isn’t a woman who draws much notice. She leads a solitary life, writing recipes for the local gazette, cooking with ingredients from her garden, and chatting to her pet chicken, Morag. When Maria becomes the newspaper’s advice columnist, she peppers her responses with delectable recipes to help people fix their problems. But after a woman who wrote to her turns up dead, Maria and her colleague, rookie journalist Jessie (Kylie Fisher), spring into action. They’re determined to solve the murder in their small South African town, to the annoyance of police detective Khaya (Tony Kgoroge, Invictus). The investigation stirs up painful memories from Maria’s past in Scotland—and puts Jessie and Maria in the crosshairs of the killer. Can the detecting duo crack the case before the murderer catches them? This “suspense-filled drama series” (Sunday World, South Africa) is based on the bestselling novels by Sally Andrew.
