9781486219391: Heavenly Pleasures (Corinna Chapman Mysteries)

Corinna Chapman likes the quiet life: good food, good company and her daily work as a baker. She doesn't really want mystery and intrigue in her life. Unfortunately for her, she doesn't have much choice. Corinna's apartment building seems to be a magnet for mystery and mayhem and, with her new lover Daniel a private investigator, Corinna seems destined to be involved in solving these mysteries.

This second book in the series sees a prankster spiking the chocolates at the nearby Heavenly Pleasures chocolate store (is it an elaborate and horrible joke, or a warning of worse to come?), an attempt to blow up the apartment block, and strange new residents moving in.

About the Author:

Kerry Greenwood has written fourteen novels in the Phryne Fisher series, the most recent being Queen of the Flowers (2004). She is also the author of The Childstone Cycle, Cassandra, Recipes for Crime (with Jenny Pausacker) and has edited The Things She Loves, a collection of essays about women who kill. Kerry has worked as a folk singer, factory hand, director, producer, translator, costumer-maker, cook and also works for Victoria Legal Aid as an advocate in the Magistrates' Courts. She is not married, has no children and lives with four cats and an accredited Wizard. In her spare time, she stares blankly out of the window. And she has no idea where she gets her ideas from.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Lose all thought of New Year's diets, you who enter Australian author Greenwood's delectable second Corinna Chapman cozy (after 2007's Earthly Delights). Corinna, formerly an XL-sized accountant in power suit and kitten heels, runs a downtown Melbourne artisan bakery, attached to a tantalizing Roman-themed apartment building housing a rich assortment of eccentrics. These include leather queen Mistress Dread; Corinna's omnivorous reforming junkie apprentice, Jason; Meroe, a Wiccan witch; Corinna's private zooful of arrogant cats; and Daniel, her gorgeous trout-pool–eyed ex-Israeli soldier lover, who providentially for Corinna adores 'em supersized—and he cooks, too. When someone starts injecting a neighboring shop's lavishly described Belgian chocolates with chili sauce, Corinna leaves kneading for detecting, while Daniel struggles to unmask a slithering, slavering self-proclaimed boy messiah. Greenwood's yeasty soufflé of unlikely but satisfying elements quickly thickens over the top, but who cares—it all just leads to Corinna's recipe for Chocolate Orgasm Muffins. (June)
