The Satanic Mechanic (A Tannie Maria Mystery)
|Series:||Tannie Maria Mystery|
"Tannie Maria writes the Love Advice and Recipe Column for the Klein Karoo Gazette: words of wisdom for the lovelorn, along with a recipe for something delicious that may help. But Tannie Maria's own problems resist her attempts to self-medicate, even with an amazing peanut-butter coffee chocolate cake. Her new relationship with Detective Henk Kannemeyer continues to be haunted by the memory of her abusive husband, and she decides to check out a PTSD counselling group run by a man they call the Satanic Mechanic. But then someone is murdered:poisoned with mustard sauce:before her eyes, and Tannie Maria's quest for healing takes a more investigative turn. Which means her intimate relationship with Henk is about to get professional. And more importantly, very complicated."
