Murder on the Champ de Mars
"[Cara Black] is on to a good thing: each of her novels is set in a colorful Parisian neighborhood—and there are a lot of them. The cumulative result of reading this addictive series is a sort of mini-tour of the city, as seen through a filter of fictional murder ... Leduc is always a reliable and charming guide to the city's lesser-known corners." —The Seattle Times

Book Description

Things are going great for Lexy Baker. She's finally opened her dream bakery, gotten rid of her cheating boyfriend and settled into her grandmothers house with her perky dog Sprinkles at her side.

But her blissful life doesn't last long. When her ex boyfriend is found poisoned with cupcakes from her bakery, Lexy finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation headed up by her hunky neighbor detective Jack Perillo.

With the help of a gang of iPad toting, would-be detective grandmothers, Lexy decides to take it upon herself to find the real murderer in order to clear her name and get her bakery back in business.

As things heat up on the murder trail, in the kitchen and between Lexy and the hunky detective, it's a race against time to put the real murderer behind bars and get back to baking.

Will Lexy get her man?

>> Includes the recipe for Lexy's famous cupcake tops!

(This is book 1 in the Lexy Baker Culinary Cozy Mystery Series with Recipes, but you don't have to read them in order if you don't want too!)

1.0 out of 5 stars flat mystery; distracting writing August 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a great fan of classic (christie, doyle, etc.) mystery, and of the contemporary "cozy" mystery genre. I don't require my cozies to be particularly high- or even mid-brow, or to be untainted by other generic formulas (i also happen to love chick lit and rom com, both of which are freely blended with the mystery in this novel). but the mystery itself is beyond predictable (as is the romance); even reading carelessly, you'll porobably guess the ending by page 20. Beyond that I found the writing distractingly bad. the distraction is only amplified by the poor kindle conversion here, which is full of typos.

1.0 out of 5 stars Derivative Drivel! August 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have literally read hundreds of mysteries - includig tons of cozys, chic lits and books not really worth reading. But I enjoy them and am not too critical...until this one. Absolutly nothing original, Zero character development, No plotting, nothing to recommend it even free! How I fell for paying $2.99 for this outline of a book is more than embarrassing. I got hooked by the "frosting". The blurb was well done. Grannie with computers were the compelling idea, along with cupcakes. Unfortunately the "mystery" was skipped entirely (no suspects) and other than the grannies finding an article online, no use of that plot element. Incredibly sad that this person believed they were self-publishing an original story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Editor and/or spellchecker needed September 8, 2013
By Ann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love cozy mysteries & this one sounded interesting so I purchased it for my Paperwhite. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. It started out well, but I was unpleasantly surprised to encounter a glaring spelling error (really a misused word) early in the book. I continued to find dozens of misspelled words & grammatical errors throughout the book. Maybe I'm a "grammar Nazi" but it made it impossible to concentrate on the story. Even disregarding the grammar & spelling errors, the book itself wasn't all that good. Too short & very little character development. The plot was thin also & the ending almost contrived. I finished the book & even read the next two in the series, but only because I had already purchased them. The next two were just as bad. Very, very disappointed. Unless Miss Dobbs has polished her grammar & writing skills, I won't be reading any more of her books & I definitely will not recommend them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where's the editor? June 27, 2013
By Kendra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was so poorly written I can't get over it. Not only was the style like that of a teenage girl, there were typos throughout. From mistakes in plural nouns and possessive nouns on nearly every page, to the wrong word used in many phrases "adrenaline cursing through her veins" instead of coursing. Really? I have no idea how this was ever published. The mistakes were distracting but maybe that was good because the writing itself was terrible. It was at adolescent in style and I'm a girl who likes a cheesy mystery romance. This was well beyond cheesy. There was no mystery. And the writing was choppy and made every character seem not only unbelievable but like they lack intelligence.

1.0 out of 5 stars Grammar and spell check anyone? December 8, 2012
By cem
Format:Kindle Edition
While the storyline was kind of was too predictable, too fast and not very developed. I had such a hard time getting past the grammar inconsistencies, misspellings and the use of words in the wrong tense that I could barely even finish it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tasty Little Mystery November 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Here's a fun little read that has all the right ingredients:

1. Lexy, a woman whose love of shoes only rivals that of Carrie from Sex and the City.

2. The cute detective.

3. Sprinkles, the little dog whose mischief will make your smile.

4. A murder -- with Lexy as the prime suspect.

5. A troupe of grandmothers who know their way around their iPads and the internet better than most kids.

Oh, and did I mention you even get Lexy's famous cupcake tops recipe? Check it out -- I think you'll like it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Grammar? December 15, 2012
By pj001
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cute story, but sooooooo many grammar mistakes! Plural vs possessive problems everywhere. PLEASE use grammar check on the computer or get a better editor. It was distracting enough that I couldn't finish reading, and it is a super short novel so that is definitely saying something!

By Sherri
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I sit down to read a book I like to be entertained. It doesn't have to be the best book in the world, it can have grammar, and so on. I don't care just as long as I'm entertained.
I'm so glad I did not waste my money on this book. I wish I had not wasted my time. I wished I'd stopped reading it.
I'm so sick of the
1. I'm so skinny , I can eat anything and everything and not put on a pound.
2. The punk/grunge side kick best friend to Miss perfect.
3. The dumb as a door nail fool that can solve the murder.
4. Mr Hunk cop.
5. Shoes. I'm sorry to tell you not every women in the world cares about shoes.
I could go on, but lets just say one last word about this book...
