* Season to Taste by Natalie Young

Two novels featuring dead bodies in a week… In Season to Taste it’s a husband that is dead rather than a father, but he was deliberately killed by his wife rather than died mysteriously, and she figures that eating him is safer than burying him out in the yard. So she does, concocting all kinds of clever recipes. It’s rather gruesome, even if told in a matter-of-fact manner, and it’s also quite boring after a (short) while. The idea is that the husband was a pain, but even after many meals I could not quite tell exactly what made him so very loathsome, and certainly not why a more conventional manner of breaking up with him would not have been preferable for everyone involved.
