Delicious Death (Madame Chalamet Ghost Mysteries Book 2) by Byrd Nash – Review by Jamie Burns

Delicious Death is the second book in a six part novella series called Madame Chalamet by Byrd Nash. This book took me back to my roots of loving mysteries! Nash has created a wonderful series so far with captivating characters that readers love. Elinor is by far my newest favorite sleuth-ghost whisperer- who is balancing the food competition and trying to help a lady in distress. One cannot forget that there’s an assassin who is out to cause harm. Nash has a wonderful knack for keeping the reader at the edge of their seat in anticipation about what will happen next. I am looking forward to reading the third book in this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sadly, I had to read the 2nd part of Byrd Nash’s novel. I have to say this is different from my other likes of mystery and murder crimes. Elinor is a medium who finally took a break from solving crime and ended up with another solving crime in which a King is a target. Funny is that the chef is the one that is the problem and using food to kill the King.
I recommended this to my teen kids who love to a good mystery book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The second book in the Madame Chalamet Ghost Mysteries set, fully composed of six books. Elinor Chalamet, crime fighting medium, returns for another round of ghost banter and mischief. I would recommend reading book 1 (Ghost Talker) before this one, as it builds on previous character development and helps to establish the momentum into Delicious Death. I really enjoyed that the story continues, but is not dragged out extensively. We find ourselves in a new location with a whole different array of ghosts and characters, and of course dilemmas to deal with! I did find this book to be a change of pace from book one, and a LITTLE slower, but still a fast and easy read that I highly enjoyed. Byrd Nash knows how to engage the reader and keep the pages turning, and I am looking forward to the next one.

After reading book 2 and 1 back to back, there is a lot of times Elinor shows humor in her investigation. Elinor wants to seek the truth in the murder of her father but the Duke always gets in the way of her case.

My kids love Nash mystery novels ever since I bought the 2nd book for them.

I have loved Byrd Nash. I make sure I follow her books. This story has a strong female central lead, it is always enjoyable when an author projects a strong female lead in 1800s with eccentric qualities. Elinor has a penchant towards ghost talking. She befriends another eccentric woman , who is a doctor. In the winter feast. There is an attempt to murder the king. There is a duke who is equally interested in solving this mystery. The forbidden romance brews between Elinor and the Duke. Social restrictions follow.
What not to like about it, nothing . Overall a very enjoyable read.

Elinor is trying to have herself a good holiday when she finds that someone has targeted the king. Duke de Archambeau is also on the case and feels he can solve this mystery before Elinor. She’s being kept busy with other paranormal happenings as well but she is determined to find who is behind the plot against the king. The pace of this book was a little quick, however it never makes you feel like you’re missing out on any part of the story. The author does a great job building onto the story and the characters from the first installment. If you like paranormal crime and mystery this would be a great book to read.

Ghost Talker (Madame Chalamet Ghost Mysteries #1)Ghost Talker by Byrd Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this first book, our main character, Madame Elinor Chalamet, is determined to find her father’s killer. It was this goal that led her to be trained as a medium by the elite Morpheus Society. Now she helps others as a female Sherlock Holmes type, while also trying to find leads about her father.

Our main male character is Tristan Fontaine, Duke de Archambeau. He often takes pleasure in denouncing frauds who claim to have medium abilities, and he has Elinor in his sites. Will he prove that she is indeed a fraud or will Elinor show him her skills are in fact real?

I love a snarky, strong heroine and Elinor definitely is that. The adventures, romance, humor, and amazing descriptions all add greatly to this quick read. If you think a female Sherlock who also may or may not be a REAL medium is your kind of story, then you should definitely pick this up. I honestly can’t wait to read more as this story kept me turning the pages.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This paranormal mystery starts off with Madame Elinor Chalamet, our fmc from book one, wanting a little excitement as she’s been bored since her last case. Just as luck would have it, she receives an invitation from King Guenard for the Winter Revels. What starts off as a fun escape from the lackluster daily hum drum turns into yet another mystery to be solved as she finds out the King is being targeted. Tristan Fontaine, Duke de Archambeau, is determined to solve the case before Elinor. It’s through this competition of sorts we get to continue to see their sarcastic, snarky, and often humorous banter. We also get to see as feelings blossom between the two.

Byrd Nash has done it yet again. Her descriptive writing, amazing mystery plot twists, and humorous banter between characters has me wanting more. I love a strong, smart, snarky female main character and this series has just that in Elinor. Elinor often reminds me of a historical type, Charlie from Daryanda Jones’ First Grave series, as she solves cases, talks to ghosts, and is fine being alone despite starting to crush on a man. This is a fantastic series that has just gotten better in this second book. I honestly can’t wait to read more!

Madame Chalamet is known as the Ghost Talker. Her adventure continues with the duke. He gets her invitations to the Food competition between wide known chefs, including the one at her hotel. Many stories fold during the competition which makes for a great read! I really did love the drama and mystery that was brought into this book. I can’t wait for the next book! 🙂

I read the first book and loved it so immediately had to next this one next and it did not disappoint. I love it just as much as the first book, if not more!
The story continues nicely from where the last left off and the relationships between the different characters only became more engaging. It was great to witness the ongoing interactions between Elinor and the Duke, how the growing attraction/relationship continues to grow from the first novella.
The author once again impressed me with their writing style, I was easily able to envision the world they had created and felt like I really had fallen into the world walking alongside Elinor as she navigated the new scenery.
While I was able to learn some more about my favourite characters there is still so much, I don’t know, but wish to, and so I eagerly await the next books in the series! Just as with the first novella, I could not put this one down and I can see how this will be the case for the entire series.
I whole-heartedly recommend this series to those who enjoy historical investigative stories, ghosts and romance!

Mystery, crime fighting, and a medium with enough spunk to do it all – this book encompasses just about everything. Acting as the second installment, the reader follows along as a satisfying new change of pace and location are reached as well as a slow-embered burn of a romance takes flame.

Ghosts and mourning, grief and acceptance, overall this book was a good pace and a fun read.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ghost Talker is a fast-paced novella but by no means lacks intrigue and action.
I love the genres which this story includes fantasy (paranormal), historical, crime and romance so this was right up my alley! The combination was woven together very well, and the elements felt perfectly balanced – they complimented each other throughout the story. I was initially concerned that it may have felt thrown together without much thought, but as my first introduction to this author’s abilities, it is safe to say she has quickly found her place on my favourites list. It was clear that the combination of genres, events and characters were used with a purpose in mind, and all came together to create an enjoyable and gripping adventure.
The way that the characters bounce off each other and each have their distinct personalities alongside the descriptive way they are portrayed make falling in love with the characters (and the world they inhabit) so easy. I especially love Elinor’s independence and I wish I had even half of her self-confidence!
I can’t wait for the rest of the series and hope to learn more about Elinor, but I especially wish to learn more about the events of the Duke of Archambeau’s past as the series progresses.

This is the second book of Madame Chalamet and let me say I was not disappointed! I loved that this time Elinor is supposed to be on vacation to attend the Winter Revel with her friend Charlotte but she seems to be unable to stay out of trouble. When the king falls ill from mysterious circumstances, Elinor takes it upon herself to figure out who is the true culprit. Not to mention she helps the living with spirits of the dead holding on or vice versa. I am a true foodie at heart and loved the descriptions of all the courses of food from the top chefs’ competition. I can’t wait to read the next installment of Ghost Mysteries.

This book helps to introduce the main character Madame Chalamet for this six-part novella series. The time period reminds me of Bridgeton where there are lords and ladies, castles, and dinner parties. The way that Madame Chalamet communicates to the dead is clearly explained at the beginning of the series and more pieces throughout. With a recently deceased body, she is able to grasp key information for the police. Due to the sensitive nature of the case the duke de Archambeau, Tristan Fontaine decides that she must remain at his residence until the case is solved. The twists and turns of the case are fun and made me unable to put the book down. There is still the underlying mystery of who killed her father to figure out but she is able to get another step closer by the end of the book.

This is book two in the Madame Chalamet Ghost Mysteries by Byrd Nash. The author most definitely did not disappoint. I absolutely loved every aspect of this book, the characters are so easily to fall in love with, and the main plot is excellently woven, with a great complimented sub-plot. Madame Chalamet has been invited to The Winter Revels, a royal arts and skills competition the King throws every year, this year the main competition is cooking. In attendance is most of the nobility and a few commoners, including Mysir de Archambeau. Competing in the competition is her favorite Chef from the Crown Hotel. Madame Chalamet and Dr. LaRue have already found trouble before they even step off the train and they must absolutely help Lady Tulip Langenberg. An attempt on the King’s life makes for an interesting mystery; who in a house full of people want the King dead? Both Mysir de Archambeau and Madame Chalamet must get to the bottom of the assassination attempt, while Madame Chalamet is balancing trying to help Lady Tulip, and also has been called upon to help an older Widow let go of her husband who has been dead for five years. Will they be able to help everyone who needs their attention? What if they cannot uncover who tried to kill the King? Will the person try again? On top of these mysteries, the relationship between Madame Chalamet and the Duke is strengthening and seems to be more than platonic, at least I hope it will be! Cannot wait till I can read book three!

In the second book of the Madame Chalamet Ghost Mysteries, Elinor has not been very busy since the first book. But that doesn’t diminish the story at all but actually enhances it by adding a new ghost, we learn a bit more about Elinor and her friends/acquaintances, and of course more about her search. I couldn’t stop reading and finished it within a day and a half.

This is the first book in the Madame Chalamet Ghost Mysteries. The author writes wonderfully and gets you hooked on learning about Madame Elinor Chalamet who has been studying to become a medium. She has a personal reason to study this, to find out who killed her father. While on this quest, she is helping the police whenever she can.

Although this book is a novella, it keeps your attention with suspense, romance, and a strong woman character in Elinor. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the rest of the books in the series.

This book was very enjoyable to read. It is what I would describe as a Cozy Paranormal. Even with this book being cozy paranormal for me, it also included that bit of a mystery with Elinor Chalamet trying to discover the mystery of a widow and her long-since-deceased husband. I also quite enjoyed the banter and budding romance between Elinor and the Duke. Something that made me like this book almost instantly was the main character herself; Elinor. Elinor is who sees these ghosts, and I was immediately drawn to her wit and independent nature. I also enjoyed the relationship between her and Dr. Charlotte. They are two peas-in-a-pod with how Elinor is a Medium, and Charlotte is Mortician. The prose are nicely done as well, had awesome dialogue, and is not a intense read. I was able to finish this in two days. Highly recommend if you are looking for a light, witty, and humorous read about the after life ,with an independent female main character in the 1800s of a London-like- society.

This is another fast paced mystery where spirits and food combine with delicious, yet dangerous consequences, all while romance slowly kindles between Elinor and the Duke.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Elinor Chalamet is a woman with an unusual talent, she is a Ghost Talker and can communicate with spirits so that they can pass through to the afterlife, but she also uses her talents to try and find her fathers killer, however, so far she has had little success. One day she receives a summons from the local morgue with a request for her aid with a body which has been found in the canal, however, when she arrives there, she is not expected by everyone and when she reveals what information she is able to, the Duke de Archambeaux, Tristan Fontaine is quite perturbed and insists on Elinor being escorted to his house where she will have to remain under house arrest.

Elinor is not impressed by this and so requests her belongings and her maid to be moved to his home, so that she can still undertake her work in a professional manner, the Duke is reluctant, but when she insists, he allows it, but only if he can vet her correspondence and clients first. This is not something Elinor is happy about, but she obliges and makes it as tedious for the Duke as possible, as it is very much entertaining for her to ruffle his feathers and put him in his place, however, this abrupt and outspoken attitude is not well received by the others living with the Duke.

As the investigation proceeds, Elinor is called upon to help, but as danger and intrigue surround her, will she be able to keep her head and not allow any antagonistic circumstances, or her budding attraction to the Duke de Archambeaux overwhelm her? This is a mystery where nothing is as it seems and the dark underbelly beneath the picturesque setting of Alenbonné is revealed.

I came across this book first and started reading it before realizing that this was book 2 in a series. From there I had to find book one just to read to see how my thoughts might be swayed and the impact it has on understanding the second book. Even though I did it backwards I was still able to follow the storyline and the author does a wonderful job with looping you in.

Elinor, our female medium, is a witty, take no prisoners type of person and definitely not one to let society tell her what she must do. So when she gets an invite to a royal feast she must accept after all she also loves to eat. Throw in an attempted murder, a ghost stalking her favorite chef, and the romantic tension between Elinor and Duke Tristan you have a witty masterpiece that anyone would fall in love with. Who will solve this dastardly royal murder attempt or will they end up in the crosshairs of the perpetrator?

This was a witty, humorous paranormal mystery read that will keep you flipping pages just to find out what happens next. Now onto downloading the others in this series so I can see what happens next.

Well, well, well a ghost story with suspense. Elinor Chalamet a crime fighting medium. She is not only independent but plays a strong role in this case. While things seem to be quiet around her, life gets boring. Getting an invitation from the King Guenard, she chooses to visit the King and the great cook off. Taking her friend Dr. Charlotte LaRue with her on the adventure. But things change quite quickly. Murder and mayhem keep this story going with its twists and turns. This is a new author for me. But I am very pleased I gave her a chance. Her fantasy ghost story with its action and suspense held my interest and was fun to read. I am looking forward to what happens next for Elinor.

I enjoyed Delicious Death. I think I may have enjoyed it more than book 1 in this series. The author brings us back to Alenbonne and into Madame Chalamet’s life. This time it seems to be a bigger adventure and a bigger mystery.
The resident Ghost Talker has been invited to The Winter Revels by the king. This season’s competition is among 6 chefs across the land. Of course Madame Chalamet feels Duke Archambeau is behind it. But what happens when all the fun and games turns serious. Someone poisoned the King and with all these people in the same place from high society as well as common, anyone could’ve done it.
Together and apart the Duke and Madame start an investigation to get to the bottom of it. Despite everything the push and pull between them, they make a great team. It could also be that the author is showing more chemistry between them within the writing.
I look forward to continuing on into this series!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ghost Talker was interesting. I struggled to get into it at first but the author wrote an interesting mystery with a supernatural element. I’m a sucker for the supernatural, books of fiction in this genre have always intrigued me. Ghost Talker was no different.
Madame Chalamet has been brought into an investigation that lands her in house arrest. All because of what the spirit revealed to her. Revealing who he was and what relations said person has, Duke Archambeau felt he needed to keep a close eye on her. Despite being present in the morgue of the spirit talking he still had his doubts about Madame Chalamet’s profession.
Forced to work together to solve the murder and keep the peace treaty signing in order, the Duke and Madame find as much as they frustrate one another they also entertain as well.
The mystery the author lays before you is different because ghosts are helping to lead the investigation. But that different element makes it stand out. Keeps the book in the reader’s mind even after they are done. Makes one look forward to more books in this series. As well as what could develop between the Madame and Duke.

Elinor is invited to attend the king’s Winter Revels – where chefs compete for the king’s favor. She is thrilled to be attending because life has been a tad boring, and her favorite chef will be competing! Elinor brings her friend, Dr. LaRue, along so they can both enjoy good food and some relaxation. However, when the king is poisoned and there is trouble afoot, who better to help the king’s man, Duke Archambeau, solve the mystery than Elinor? Can they find the culprit before it’s too late?

This continuation of the series did not disappoint! I feel like I was drawn in even more to the mystery of Elinor and the duke! The other characters and their issues were well rounded and a fantastic addition to the story. I am truly enjoying this author’s work. They explain what is happening well enough that you do not feel inundated with information.
