The main characters, Melina and Betty Jo, met in college and became best friends. Subsequently, they both established businesses in the same commercial building in Providence, Rhode Island and had apartments above their shops. Melina, who partnered with her grandmother, ran a bakery and Betty Jo had a Tarot shop.
Their very unpopular landlord was murdered and found dead in Betty Jo’s shop, with a piece of crusty bread, seemingly baked by Melina, stuffed in her mouth. Of course the girls were immediate suspects. Melina was determined to solve this murder and clear her own and Betty Jo's name. Against the advice of two handsome detectives, her grandmother, and a newly found friend, who is an attractive Scotsman. Melina continues her quest and uncovers multiple suspects including the Scotsman, with whom she actually has a little romance.
The ensuing investigation by Melina is interesting and will hold your attention. I highly recommend reading the first book in the Deadly Bakery Series, A Crusty Murder by J.M. Griffin. You will want to do as I did, and read the second book in the series, A Crouton Murder, as well as author's "Vinnie Esposito" series. I’m now anxiously waiting for additional books in the Deadly Bakery Series.
This is a light mystery and basically a long novella. The other two in the series are more normal novella length. This is the kind of book you sit down with and turn off the analytical part of your mind and just enjoy the visit. For the most part well paced and written with a light hand, I appreciated the author not trying to write the Scotsman's speech in dialect but let him speak normally with an occasional Gaelic phrase.
needed some editing - one character's name was switched numerous times in the
book - first name, last name then a few pages late the last name was his first name.
that should have been caught in editing
predictable outcome, author's characters in her series manage to get in awkward
situations all the time, but always manage to get out of it....
the story lines are all pretty much the same, just different locations
