Publisher's Summary

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.

Good fun from Aussieland

I loved this book it is great fun and had me laughing out loud at times. It is refreshing to have a book set in Australia instead of GB or USA so I looking forward to reading some more. Kerry Greenwood has read a lot of the same writers that I have so the references have been understood and enjoyed.

The narrator is just right, an Australian Barbara Rosenblat, I will now look out for books read by her. A good fun read.

Entertaining mystery story, engaging characters

Where does Earthly Delights rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Pretty high on the easy listening side


What did you like best about this story?

Well-researched background, which on the whole was well-blended in to the story


What about Louise Siversen’s performance did you like?

Enjoyed her dry and wry delivery, and her engaging variety of tones and voices


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Only really curious to see how it panned out. It had a HFN feel from the start, and I wasn't disappointed


Any additional comments?

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.
