Publisher's Summary

A murdered chef. A poisoned pastry. Can a young barista deliver a killer their just desserts? 

Maddy dreams of opening her own detective agency with her best friend. Fresh off her A-levels and looking to save up funds, she and her BFF take a gap-year job serving coffee to rich tourists at an Austrian ski resort. But when someone tampers with one of Maddy’s sweet creations to snuff out a snooty pastry chef, the offending doughnut becomes a recipe for disaster....

With her dreams of becoming a PI in serious danger, Maddy has next to no time to preserve the cafe's reputation and clear her name. But as the suspect list rises and the trail of breadcrumbs grows stale, her future rests on bringing the killer to justice. 

Can Maddy close her very first case before she's cooked?

Entertaining Pastry Chefs Mystery

This book was an entertaining story with lots of pastries, jealousy and it kept me guessing until the end. The narration was well done and the editing was professional. This is my first book by Sara Jane Weldon and I was impressed. I'll definitely be reading and/or listening to more of her books. I received a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations requested. My review is voluntary because I enjoyed this book immensely.

Great Book

This is my first book by Sara Jane Weldon! The story line is amazing. Lots of twists and turns. Loved the characters! So many possibilities of a murderer. I didn’t have a clue until the end. Very surprising! I will read more of her books! Kim Bretton entertained with her many character voices, especially loved the police officer!

A Treat of a Read

A witty and entertaining beginning to this Coffee Shop Mystery series. Kim Bretton's accomplished narration adds an extra sparkle to this cosy mystery as she deftly gives voices to the many colourful and exuberant characters created by Sarah Jane Weldon. A fast moving plot and a suitably dramatic conclusion make this book a real treat for any cosy mystery enthusiast. Bonus points for the amusing glossary and the recipes at the end of the book.

SO BLOODY FUNNY!

I found myself laughing out loud at this witty and fantastic tale. An homage to Agatha Christie, had me and my 12 year old son enthralled from the start. I think Kim Bretton's narration took this to a whole new level and I was blown away by her comic timing, command of suspense and ACCENTS!! I highly recommend this delightful book to old and young listeners alike.
