Towering Wedding Cakes, Cookies, & Delicious Tarts…And A Big Crime
Cookied: A Little-Pinch-of-Murder Series Cozy Mystery
Discover a sweet and savory novel from popular writer Miranda Rose Barker, where she masterfully combines intrigue and suspense into a light, fast-paced story perfect for fans of culinary cozy mysteries.
When Lydia Hewitt, a dedicated and confident baker, started her own baking business in the small tourist town of Park Perdsor, Rhode Island, she was pleased with her bakery.
But then, as she was making progress toward her grand opening, strange things started to happen.
On day 1 on the job, Callie, her newly hired assistant, discovers the dead body of a man in the bakery when they are just starting to open.
“I first saw Callie standing still, her face in shock. As I approached her, I followed her eyeline to see a man lying on the ground.
“Oh my God!” The sight of him caused me to jump a little. Of all the ways I expected my day to go, this was maybe the least expected.
“He’s dead!” Callie gasped. I wasn’t sure what to think or what to do at first. I just stared at this man, whom I did not know, lying dead in my kitchen. He didn’t look that much older than me.”
It soon becomes clear that the “Grand Opening Day”, will be one of the biggest challenges Lydia will ever face.
What was the man’s motivation for breaking into the bakery? Who Killed Him – and Why There?
Reviews for the Book
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The characters were well-written and fun to read. The story had enough twists and turns that it kept me guessing. A fun whodunnit with a surprise ending. I received an advanced copy of the book and am voluntarily leaving this review. - BrendaJ Stenstrom
