All is not well for Baker Corinna Chapman despite her successful business and the acquisitions of both a promising young apprentice and a handsome, sensual private eye/partner.
Jason, her young apprentice, had entered into a deal to produce "famine bread" for a group of monks who had established themselves in a property in Melbourne. Given that their only complaint had been that she had made the bread taste too good, it seems they were seriously into mortifying the flesh. And speaking of mortifying-- her unwashed, unpleasant and hysterical mother shows up at the bakery to demand Corinna's help in finding Corinna's father, who had taken off on a mid-life crisis to find "young flesh". Finally, it appears that her two young shop assistants hae fallen victim to a dangerous diet aid.
There's other mysteries that Corinna must solve which introduces the reader to some other venues (including one that is distinctly sad), as she searches for her father.
This one is also narrated by the inestimable Louise Siverson in her warm, kind tones.
I'm going to take a break in the series here, but I'm sure I will be back to finish the rest. The second book in the series was Heavenly Pleasures: A Corinna Chapman Mystery. The next is Trick or Treat: A Corinna Chapman Mystery.

Fell in love with Phryne Fisher, watched every show I could get on Netflix and listened to every one in audiobook (the reader is phenomenal).
Now I find myself actually buying this audiobook and not waiting for my credits, I love them! I love that they are a mini vacation for the mind from the world we live in and I love that love story!
I also love the happy endings!

Love this series and the narrator does a good job. Some of her accents are a little strange but otherwise her reading is brilliant. My only issue with this book is the pointless musical interlude between chapters. It's horrible, annoying and adds nothing to the story at all. Hope they haven't done this with the rest of the books in this series.
