When a cut-price franchise bakery opens its doors just down the street from Earthly Delights and crowds flock to purchase the bread, baker Corinna Chapman is under-standably nervous. Meanwhile, her lover Daniel’s old friend Georgiana Hope has temporarily set up residence in his house. She’s tall, blond, and gorgeous, and it doesn’t take Corinna long to work out that she’s up to something. Daniel is making excuses and Corinna is worried about his absences. But even more worrisome is the strange outbreak of madness that seems to be centered on Lonsdale Street.
Can Corinna find her way through a maze of health regulations, missing boyfriends, sinister strangers, fraudulent companies and back-alley ambushes? Or will the Earthly Delights Bakery be well and truly done?

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
