MY REVIEW

An extremely cute book which gave a warm fun feeling even when the main character Ali was suspected of murder.

My first book by author Fiona Grace, the writing was cheerful and had the power to keep me hooked in Ali’s life. From a bad boss to an irate customer to opening up her own pastry shop, Ali was sweet (pun intended). I liked how the author made her go through hardships while starting her own business, including dealing with a pelican thief.

Being a cozy mystery, I knew it would end well, the book was packed with good scenes which perked me up and made me curious about the killer. Ah yes, a dead body did wash up after being pushed off the pier.

The story was well balanced with the foul play occurring in the mid half of the book. The croissants seemed to be delish. Come on, everyone wanted it!!

Overall, a light warm read that appealed to all my senses.

MY RATING

Rating: 4 out of 5.

BOOK BLURB

Allison Sweet, 34, a sous chef in Los Angeles, has had it up to here with demeaning customers, her demanding boss, and her failed love life. After a shocking incident, she realizes the time has come to start life fresh and follow her lifelong dream of moving to a small town and opening a bakery of her own.

When Allison spots a charming, vacant storefront on the boardwalk near Venice, she wonders if she could really start life anew. Feeling like it’s a sign, and a time to take a chance in life, she goes for it.

Yet Allison did not anticipate the wild ride ahead of her: the boardwalk, filled with fun and outrageous characters, is pulsing with life, from the Italian pizzeria owners on either side of her who vie for her affection, to the fortune tellers and scheming rival bakery owner nearby. Allison yearns to just focus on her delicious new pastry recipes and keep her struggling bakery afloat-but when a murder occurs right near her shop, everything changes.

Implicated, her entire future at stake, Allison has no choice but to investigate to clear her name. As an orphaned dog wanders into her life, a devoted new sidekick with a knack for solving mysteries, she starts her search.

Will they find the killer? And can her struggling bakery survive?

  1. This sounds like a good start to a new series. I have to wonder. Pelican thief? Is someone stealing pelicans or is the pelican a thief? Both make for interesting thoughts.
