Corinna Chapman, amateur sleuth, baker extraordinaire and proprietor of the Earthly Delights Bakery, returns for her fourth criminally entertaining and delicious adventure. When a cut-price franchise bakery opens its doors just down the street from Earthly Delights and crowds flock to purchase the bread, Corinna Chapman is understandably nervous. Meanwhile, the gorgeous Daniel's old friend Georgiana Hope has temporarily set up residence in his house, and it doesn't take Corinna long to work out that she's tall, blonde, gorgeous and up to something. Daniel is making excuses and Corinna is worried about his absences and also the strange outbreak of madness which seems to be centred on Lonsdale Street. Will Corinna win through a maze of health regulations, missing boyfriends, sinister strangers, fraudulent companies and back-alley ambushes? Or will this be the end for the Earthly Delights Bakery?

Kerry Greenwood, author of the Phryne Fisher Australian mysteries, has created a new heroine: Corinna Chapman, professional baker and occasional amateur sleuth in Melbourne. This series has many of GreenwoodÕs signatures, including humor, deft characterization, an independent heroine, orgasmic descriptions of food, and some of the other kind of orgasm. The plot involves poisonings and a Druid convention, which narrator Louise Siversen carries off with aplomb. Corinna is sexy; the drawl of her ex-druggie baking assistant sounds like everyoneÕs inner 20-something; the shop assistantÕs Australian Valley Girl intonation is precious; and the witches are all distinct. What a fine, fun job. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
