I really enjoyed this story. A young girl, an orphan, takes over ownership of her grandmothers bakery. Soon after a strange email a dead body turns up in the bakery on the day of its grand reopening no less. The characters were likable and the main character was funny. It was a light cozy mystery and I look forward to the next in the series. The narrator was good, her voice was perfect for the character, on occasion I found it a little difficult to follow who was talking as her voice for the characters were similar. It wasn't overly distracting though and most of the time I followed ok. I would certainly listen to her again. I received a free review copy of this book at my request in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed the book...I wish I had read the previous books.
Riley takes over her grandma's bakery. She is seeing Will and thinks life is good. In walks Jared who sends her body tingling (unlike Will), in walks Tara - intent on making trouble & to top things off she finds a dead body in her bakery! He has died from a nut allergy but Riley's bakery is a 100% nut free establishment so to her...this spells murder and she is determined to figure out what happened. This takes the friends & family into a spiral of who done its and how the dead body ties in with Riley's life.
It had me guessing right until the very end.

Any additional comments?
I gave it a three because I thought that the grandmother was a bit selfish. I don't care if she is retired. When a family member is involved in a murder you would at least ring them to find out what is going on. She didn't. Her granddaughter Riley had to ring her a few times and leave a message. Did she call back? No! Riley had to ring her back. You would think that she would come down even it is for a day or two but still no. Then Riley gets into trouble her friends ring her grandmother thinking that she would like to know. Does she come down then? Yes but she had to be convinced! What kind of grandmother is that! If someone did this in real life I would of thought that the grandmother did not love or care for that person at all. That is why it went down to three for me. I just couldn't get past the fact her grandmother acted this way and I don't care what she was doing at the time.
on a positive note, I did not guess correclty on who done it. It came as a shock when I found out who it was. I also liked the romance too.
The narrator unfortunatily I did not like. I felt that her voice didn't change. She tended to keep it at one pitch. I did not feel the fear, surprise, anger, etc. She suited Riley's character but she didn't change it for the other characters.
