Publisher's Summary

On a culinary tour of the British Isles, retired Detective Superintendent Albert Smith and snarky former police dog Rex Harrison find something quite unexpected waiting for them at their B&B....

…It’s the almost-dead body of their landlady.

Refusing to believe in coincidence, Albert and Rex set out to discover why her "accident" is the second terrible event there in two days. Something is stirring in Bakewell and it’s not the ingredients for a famous tart.

In trouble faster than a souffle can fall, the duo must work fast before anyone else has an accident. But the landlady’s twin sister is hiding a secret, Albert keeps calling it a tart when it’s a pudding, and their taxi driver, Asim, appears to use a language all of his own.

With Rex’s nose working overtime, you can be sure they’ll track down the bad guys responsible. Unfortunately, that might be when the real trouble begins.

Baking. It can get a guy killed.

Great Fun

Albert and Rex continue their culinary tour of England in this charming cozy mystery. As they arrive at their bed and breakfast, they learn that their landlady has just been hit by a bus . . . and a neighbor, the owner of the cooking school Albert had intended to take his class, has been murdered. Unable to bake, Albert and Rex find themselves involved in trying to solve the murder, and stopping another murder from happening. What a fun book. The writing is filled with humor and concern. The narration is spot on, making each character come to life. I could believe that octogenarian Albert and his dismissed police dog, Rex, are on the case. This time, Albert’s children, all police officers, also get involved. The situation is believable, and the writing and narration will draw you in. This is definitely a book that will keep you listening and wanting to know what happens next. I look forward to future books in this series. I received an Audible code for this book from the author. I thank him for his generosity, but it had no effect on this review. All opinions in this review reflect my true and honest reactions to reading this book.

what a surprise ending!

A family of police officers trying to keep their retired police officer father out of trouble seems to be the basis for one if the best mysteries i have read in a long time! I listened to this book on Audible and I was extremely involved with the story from the beginning. The narrators voice so fit the characters the book was delivered to maximum effect and the storyline so well written that the list of suspects was unlimited till almost the end. I cannot wait to get into the rest of the series!
