Fat Chance by Malla Duncan, is a comedy murder mystery that tells the story of two, middle-aged, English women, Marsha and Milly, as  they set out to visit Marsha’s friend Betty, who resides on the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy.  Their hopes for a marvellous relaxing holiday in the sun are dashed on their arrival, however, when they find that Betty is missing, believed dead!  Is she the latest victim of a serial killer?

While Marsha reinvents herself as a sleuth in an effort to find Betty, Milly falls madly in love with an Italian chocolate maker, and so begins a rollicking mystery filled with unsuspecting twists and turns along with a diverse array of wonderful characters.

This delightful, witty story moves at a spirited pace, with Malla Duncan’s talent for description transporting the reader not only to the warmth and beauty of the Amalfi Coast, but into the middle of a great mystery.

  1. Great Review! This book sounds like fun, Jill. I'm not sure I've ever read a comical murder mystery so I'll have to check this one out.
