What happens when it’s a: Hard Dough Homicide (by Olivia Matthews)

This title is the second entry in Olivia Matthews’s new series following on Against the Currant. As readers can tell from the book’s titles, there is good food here…oh, and murder!

Protagonist Lyndsay owns the Spice Isle Bakery along with her family. She also becomes involved in a crime when her mother’s old boss does not survive a catered event. This sets the stage for Lyndsay’s investigation.

What follows is a fun and enjoyable cozy mystery. There are lots of suspects, a good Brooklyn setting in the Little Caribbean neighborhood, and a bakery with things I wish I could actually eat.

Many thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for this title. I look forward to the next in the series. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
