Publisher's Summary

She’s a talented pastry chef - with a secret recipe for solving crimes…

WELCOME TO THE COOKIE HOUSE
Kate McGuire’s life was sweet in Manhattan before she lost her restaurant job and fiancé both. But sometimes that’s just the way the cookie crumbles, and soon she finds herself starting from scratch in the island town of Coral Cay, Florida. It has everything she’s looking for: sunny beaches, friendly locals, and a Help Wanted sign in the bakery shop window. Once she convinces the shop’s crusty owner Sam Hepplewhite to hire her, Kate can’t tie on her apron fast enough. Little does she know that trouble, like warm dough, is on the rise. . . 

WHERE CRIMINALS GET THEIR JUST DESSERTS
Stewart Lord is a real estate developer with a taste for a different type of dough: the green kind. He knows that he could make a killing by purchasing the Cookie House from Sam, who flat-out refuses to sell. But when Stewart turns up the heat on Sam - then turns up dead after eating a fresh batch of Sam’s cinnamon rolls - all eyes focus on the town’s beloved bakery. When the police arrest Sam for murder, Kate must somehow prove that her curmudgeonly boss is innocent. Enlisting the help of a team of lovable locals, Kate sets out to catch the real culprit with his hand in the cookie jar…before someone else gets burned.

I loved it!

It definitely exceeded my expectations. It is well written, the plot is detailed and characters are great too; very entertaining. It is not cheesy at all. I would not change a thing.

And then there was love, family, and a mystery

I have never loved a new series more than this one! The characters of Coral Key are like family. You’ll get to meet Kate, Maxi, Sam and Oliver. And you will love them like I do. Many more of this series please!

2 and a half stars

And Then There Were Crumbsis an ok book. It started out good but then the story dragged. I put it down a couple of times for other books. But I did manage to finish it. I might get the next one.
