Genre: Cozy Mystery
A delectable cozy mystery with the right amount of sleuthing and charm
Maymee Bell (aka Tonya Kappes) is one of my favorite cozy mystery writers! She builds worlds though her words and brings these characters to life. The amount of southern charm that exudes from these characters is precious and one cannot help falling instantly in love with them. The bonus of course is the delicious recipes that are included in the story and I cannot wait to try them! If you are a culinary cozy mystery lover like myself (or a fan of Joanne Fluke, another author of the genre) this book and series is a must read!
Batter off Dead is the second book in the Southern Cake Baker mystery series and should be read in order. If you would like to purchase a copy of the first book you can find it here ➜ CAKE AND PUNISHMENT. It follows cake baking sleuth, Sophia Cummings, as she dishes up desserts while trying to find a killer.
Sophia Cummings has recently moved back to the town of Rumford Kentucky after leaving her job in New York. Things are looking great for Sophia as she has finally settled into her new home and new bakery. However, when she finds another body (yes, ANOTHER) at a catering gig, things start to get hot in the kitchen! Not wanting her best friend to go to jail for the murder she stops at nothing- not even the warning from her new boyfriend and police officer, Carter, to find the killer!
Cozy Mystery fans, this book is not to be missed! I very much recommend it. You will have no problem flipping the pages and devouring the book as you work with Sophia to find the killer before it's too late!
