Introducing Corinna Chapman, baker and reluctant investigator . . . 'Earthly Delights' is the first in a wonderful new, crime series from Kerry Greenwood, filled with gastronomical delights, humour and unexpected twists.
Baking is an alchemical process for Corinna Chapman. At 4am 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.
