The Walking Bread is not a standalone story. You need to read Kneaded to Death before embarking on the newest book in A Bread Shop Mystery series. I found The Walking Bread easy to read courtesy of the writers’ style of writing. The pace varies throughout the book. I am happy to see Ivy happy living in Santa Sofia. She has a cozy home, family and good friends. I wish the author had taken the time to explain her job in The Walking Bread. We know she is a photographer and taking photos of the event for the city. Does she have her own business? It is not explained in this book. I found the concept of art cars fascinating. What a unique idea. The entrants take old cars and turn them into art pieces. Billy’s car sounded magical with it’s Through the Looking Glass theme. The description allowed me to imagine what the piece looked like. Max Litman is one of those characters that readers will love to hate. Immediately I could tell that he would soon be found dead and he was in a dramatic fashion. The account of his car will have you cringing (perfect for Halloween). Billy (of course) is the prime suspect so Ivy steps up to find the guilty party. Her helper is Penelope Branford who enjoys the investigations. Not many people liked the victim (shocker), and Ivy must wade through the various suspects to determine who would want him dead. The mystery can easily be solved before the solution is revealed. I felt the resolution was incomplete. There is supposition instead of facts. There are many cozy moments as Ivy spends time with her family, bakes bread with Olaya Solis, and enjoys romantic moments with Miguel Baptista. There are some tender and sad moments as the Culpepper family mourns the loss of their matriarch and share their favorite memories. I would like the books in this series to have more depth and character development. I am giving The Walking Bread 3 out of 5 stars. The Walking Bread is a good choice for those readers who prefer airy cozy mysteries.
Ivy Culpepper, a professional photographer, returned to her hometown of Santa Sofia after the death of her mother and is working part-time as a bread-making apprentice at Yeast of Eden, a Mexican bread bakery run by her friend Olaya Solis. Almost every year since he was seventeen years old, Ivy’s brother, Billy, had an entry in the event, only to be beaten out by his rival, Max Litman, every time. Their mother loved the Art Car Parade and Ball more than any of Santa Sofia’s other events, so after taking a hiatus for a few years, Billy decides to enter this year. In honor of her, he replicated “Through the Looking-Glass,” one of their mother’s favorite books. Ivy, Billy, and Owen, their dad, are certain this will be the year he brings home the blue ribbon. Completed entries were being housed in an airplane hangar outside of town. Ivy was photographing the first of the entries and since she wanted to take her little fawn pug, Agatha, along, her dad agreed to join them and keep an eye on high-spirited Agatha. As they approached one of the cars, Agatha stopped, sat down, refused to move, and uncharacteristically bared her teeth. The car troubling Agatha, decorated as a grotesque zombie, was missing its registration tag and upon closer inspection, Ivy discovered a dead Max Litman inside the zombie’s mouth. Max was a liar and a scoundrel and not many people will be sad he was dead. Everyone knew there wasn’t any love lost between the two men, so with one piece of circumstantial evidence against him, a lot of people think Billy’s guilty, including Sheriff Robert Lane. Deputy Sheriff Emmaline Davis, Ivy’s best friend, who is planning a life with Billy, is taken off the case. Ivy is determined to clear her brother’s name.
