Corinna Chapman, owner of the bakery Earthly Delights, detests Christmas. The shoppers are frantic and the heat oppressive in Melbourne, Australia, where Christmas is a summer festival. Corinna is a perfect size 20 with a genius for baking bread. And while dreaming of air-conditioned comfort, she finds herself dealing with a rose-addicted donkey named Serena, a maniacal mother with staring eyes, a distracted assistant seeking the definitive glacé cherry recipe, her friend the fearless witch Meroe, and the luscious Daniel with whom she would like to spend a lot more time.


But Daniel is on the track of two runaways, Brigid and Manny. Their Romeo-and-Juliet romance is not as straightforward as it seems, and the pair will go a long way to avoid being found. With the help of a troupe of free-spirited "freegans," three very clever internet hackers, and a bunch of singing vegans, Corinna and Daniel go head-to-head with a sinister religious cult on a mission and a band of Romanies out for revenge in a wild and wonderful chase against the clock.

Review:

Lose all thought of New Year's diets, you who enter...Greenwood's delectable second Corinna Chapman cozy....[Her] 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.

(Publishers Weekly starred review of Heavenly Pleasures)

Put on the coffee pot, whip up a batch of muffins (yes, two recipes are included), and enjoy this thoroughly original tale. Strongly recommended for fans of offbeat mysteries. (starred review)

(Library Journal starred review of Earthly Delight)

A talented baker and her circle of unusual friends find themselves with a puzzle to solve that echoes many of the features of a much earlier Christmas story....Like Corinna's earlier adventures (Trick or Treat, 2009, etc.), this episode is cleverly written and chock full of charming characters, interesting puzzles and luscious descriptions of food with appended recipes.

(Kirkus Reviews)
