Baking is an alchemical process for Corinna Chapman. At four am she starts work at Earthly Delights, her bakery in Calico Alley.
But one morning Corinna receives a threatening note saying "The wages of sin is death" and finds a syringe in her cat's paw. A blue-faced junkie has collapsed in the dark alley and a mysterious man with beautiful eyes appears with a plan for Corinna and her bread. Then it is Goths, dead drug addicts, witchcraft, a homeless boy, and a missing girl and it seems she will never get those muffins cooked in time.
With flair, chutzpah and a talent for kneading, Corinna Chapman will find out who exactly is threatening her life and bake some beautiful bread.

Entertaining mystery story, engaging characters
Pretty high on the easy listening side
Well-researched background, which on the whole was well-blended in to the story
Enjoyed her dry and wry delivery, and her engaging variety of tones and voices
Only really curious to see how it panned out. It had a HFN feel from the start, and I wasn't disappointed
Really enjoyed this. The mysteries weren't the most challenging, and the writer gave us a few clues along the way. Good cast of characters and a well-drawn main character. A bit of an insight into the underbelly of probably most large cities in the developed world. If you're looking for a light, easy listen which will hold your attention, this might be one for you.
