Season to Taste – Natalie Young

Back of the book :

Meet Lizzie Prain.

Ordinary housewife. Likes cooking, avoids the neighbours.

Runs a little business making cakes.

No one has seen Lizzie’s husband, Jacob, for a few days.

That’s because last Monday, on impulse, Lizzie caved in the back of his head with a spade. Now she needs to dispose of the body and her method is not for the faint-hearted.


What I think :

Lizzie is a normal housewife in her fifties. However one morning she kills her husband, chops him up into 16 pieces and puts him in the freezer.

I have got to say this wasn’t my type of book at all. I found it really gruesome and quite odd. I couldn’t finish it because it made me feel quite sick in places. Reading about cooked hands and ‘cracking’ the finger bones, isn’t really my thing.

I found the character of Lizzie very strange, who didn’t seem at all sorry about dispatching her hubby.

I’m sorry, but this one isn’t for me.

I haven’t given it a rating because I didn’t finish the book.
