And Then There Were Crumbs: A Cookie House Mystery Kindle Edition
She’s a talented pastry chef—with a secret recipe for solving crimes…
WELCOME TO THE COOKIE HOUSE
Kate McGuire’s life was sweet in Manhattan before she lost her restaurant job and fiancé both. But sometimes that’s just the way the cookie crumbles, and soon she finds herself starting from scratch in the island town of Coral Cay, Florida. It has everything she’s looking for: sunny beaches, friendly locals, and a Help Wanted sign in the bakery shop window. Once she convinces the shop’s crusty owner Sam Hepplewhite to hire her, Kate can’t tie on her apron fast enough. Little does she know that trouble, like warm dough, is on the rise. . .
WHERE CRIMINALS GET THEIR JUST DESSERTS
Stewart Lord is a real estate developer with a taste for a different type of dough: the green kind. He knows that he could make a killing by purchasing the Cookie House from Sam, who flat-out refuses to sell. But when Stewart turns up the heat on Sam—then turns up dead after eating a fresh batch of Sam’s cinnamon rolls—all eyes focus on the town’s beloved bakery. When the police arrest Sam for murder, Kate must somehow prove that her curmudgeonly boss is innocent. Enlisting the help of a team of lovable locals, Kate sets out to catch the real culprit with his hand in the cookie jar…before someone else gets burned.

The characters and dialogs are a bit thin but entertaining nonetheless .
Warning- You may be compelled to eat a fresh piece of sourdough bread before finishing. I did.... ..
A pastry chef that is relocating due to life has chosen an island off mainland Florida as her dream location. Kate needs a friend and a job, and as fate will have it, she finds both, even if they might only be temporary.
This book has the sunshine and flavors of Florida and Cuba. This book has a clever murder mystery running through it, and best of all to me, Oliver. Now Kate meets several amazing persons, however, Oliver is in a category of his own. I really don't want to spoil your discovery of all the wonderful characters introduced within this charming tale, but, Oliver is truly my favorite.
I was drooling at the foods and friendships that course through this book. No recipes are included, however, I have taken note of their names and will be doing some research on my own.
I eagerly recommend this novel and just the taste of the next volume has me wanting to run to the pre-order section of my book sellers. Give yourselves a real treat. You won't be sorry.
I enjoyed all the human characters a lot (well, except for one obvious one), and even though some of them weren't mentioned a lot, I still felt like I knew them. I just loved the curmudgeonly Sam who owned the bakery. He was a little short with people and set in his ways, but it all built up and made for the most amazing ending. I enjoyed this so much that I preordered the second book and I can't wait for it to come out. This was another book that made readers care about the characters. It told about other things that they were doing in addition to investigating, which is more realistic too. I really got a kick out of Kate staying with her new friend Maxi and family, and her three kids going nuts over Kate's baking. It's great how the people of Coral Cay took care of their own and opened their arms to adopt Kate into their town family. I'd love to visit a place like that! (who knows, I might stay!)
