Publisher's Summary

The second installment in the delicious Corinna Chapman series by best-selling cozy crime writer Kerry Greenwood.
Corinna Chapman likes the quiet life: good food, good company, and her daily work as a baker. She doesn't really want mystery and intrigue in her life. Unfortunately for her, she doesn't have much choice. Corinna's apartment building seems to be a magnet for mystery and mayhem and, with her new lover, Daniel, a private investigator, Corinna seems destined to be involved in solving these mysteries.
This second book in the series sees a prankster spiking the chocolates at the nearby Heavenly Pleasures chocolate store (is it an elaborate and horrible joke, or a warning of worse to come?), an attempt to blow up the apartment block, and strange new residents moving in.

Second Outing for Corinna Chapman

Format: Audible Download/Kindle Whispersync for Voice

Heavenly Pleasures is the name of a Chocolate Shop run by a pair of sisters of Belgium extraction. They are located near Corinna Chapman's bakery and do very good business. Then Corinna finds out that they have been the focus of a series of unpleasant incidents involving their chocolates. Nothing dangerous, so far, so it is unlikely that they would be of interest to the police, and if the story becomes public knowledge then it might ruin their trade. They hire Corinna's partner (ex-Israeli soldier, current private eye) to try to find out who is trying to put then out of business.

This isn't the only mystery though around Insula, the Roman style building where Corinna has her bakery and apartment.

Corinna is intensely likeable with her whole-hearted enjoyment of the good things in life including bread, sex, chocolate and good company. The mystery is interesting enough; however, I really enjoy the cast of eccentrics who populate Corinna's world.

The narrator, Louise Siverson does an absolutely bang up job of reading this book. I couldn't imagine another voice as that of Corinna now.

I try not to read too many books in the same series in a row because I start to notice the authors little tics and twits. However, I got the first one (Earthly Delights) on a deal from Amazon/Audible and then had to buy the next two because I liked it so well. The following book (3rd) is Devil's Food.

Relaxing listen

Easy listen! Good for listening when you don't want any gore or other disturbing imagery.

Another great story

I love they way Kerry brings the Australian people's attitude when people are in distress or trouble. Unite and find solution.

Yes, I would recommend this book and many other by Kerry Greenwood. The narrator never mis-pronounce words and has a voice that is very easy to listen too.

Entertaining, gentle and engaging mystery

Any additional comments?

Entertaining continuation of the first novel in the series, with the same gentle build-up and many of the same engaging characters. Some similarities in the overall storyline, but not enough to spoil my enjoyment. And I learned a bit about chocolate. The bad guy was a little too obvious for me, but it's only a story! Good performance too.
