Killer Carat Cream by Patrice Lyle is the second book in The Health Nut Mysteries. Dr Piper Meadows is two things – a naturopath and self-confessed chocoholic, as long as it is dark chocolate, of course. Piper is hosting an evening to launch a brand new exfoliator called Carat Cream. Containing diamond dust, it is claimed to be the deepest and best exfoliator ever. Celebrity dermatologist Dr Jasmine is testing it out for the cameras, but disaster strikes when she drops dead within seconds of applying it. Piper and her Aunt Alfa come under suspicion, especially Alfa who isn’t unknown to the police! Add a naked surfer, a Texan cowboy, a pot-bellied pig, a psychic from beyond, and a whole lot of secrets to the mix and you have the perfect recipe for murder.
Killer Carat Cream (Health Nut Mysteries Book 2) by Patrice Lyle is a laugh out loud book. Not having read the first one I didn’t know what to expect and I spent most of the book either laughing or with my jaw dropped! Ms. Lyle has written a whole set of characters that blend perfectly and the story line is second to none. There is no letup in this book; right from page one it's all go and it feels like you are on a never-ending fairground ride. There are plenty of twists and turns and, just when you think you’ve got it sussed, something else happens to send the story spinning off in another direction. This is one of the funniest books I have read in a long time and I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.
