Audible Editor Reviews

Baker extraordinaire and proprietor of the Earthy Delights Bakery, Corinna Chapman is a firm proponent of eating well, so it's no surprise that she is perturbed, to say the least, by her two assistants' extreme herbal tea diet and the appearance of a strange cult that considers eating a sinful indulgence. Things become even more complicated when someone is found in the park almost dead from malnutrition and her hippie mother turns up in a panic, claiming that Corinna's father has disappeared. Narrator Louise Siversen's performance is as rich and satisfying as Corinna's cakes, and she gives the amateur sleuth a voice full of character and intelligence. Listeners will find themselves relishing the pleasures of this delicious mystery.

Bless You for Bringing Corinna to a US Audience

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.

- Sires "I like mysteries (particularly British ones, historical fiction and nonfiction, science fiction and fantasy."

One author two of my favorite story lines!

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!
