Corinna Chapman is happy with her life as a baker. And her Israeli lover, Daniel, is as enchanting as ever. She has no intention of doing any more investigative work. At least not until she bit into what should have been a lovely violet cream chocolate and instead chomped down on a chili-filled catastrophe. Why would someone sabotage gourmet chocolate? Does someone want Heavenly Pleasures, her friends chocolate shop, to fail? Is this a horrible joke? Or is it a warning that worse is to come? Then Daniel is attacked in a run-in with a so-called messiah. Could this messiah somehow be involved in the chocolate crime? And who is the mysterious man who moved into the upper apartment? Kerry Greenwood is the creator of the Phryne Fisher series. Heavenly Pleasures is the second of three new mysteries, following Earthly Delights, featuring the irrepressible baker-cum-sleuth Corinna Chapman.

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)
