Brownies & Betrayal (Sweet Bites Mysteries, Book 1) by: Heather JustesenABOUT THE BOOK:
Pastry chef Tess Crawford thought moving from Chicago to quiet Silver Springs, Arizona would simplify her life. That was before she found the body of a woman with whom she had traded heated words the previous night, left her fingerprints on the murder weapon, and came under attack for trying to clear her name. When her cheating ex-fiance shows up, intent on convincing her to come back to work for him, Tess—armed with an extra batch of éclairs—decides to take control and solve the mystery herself, with the help of friends and frenemies alike.
But will that be enough to save her when she gets too close and the killer decides it’s safer to get her out of the way?
I've been wanting to start this series for a while. It was such a fun read and a great little mystery. Tess just moved back to her small home town to open a bakery when she discovers a dead body. When she becomes a suspect in the murder she figures she better try to shove the case so she doesn't end up in jail. I like the addition of the recipes in the book. I can't wait to try out the eclair one and see how good they are. Can't wait to read the next one in this set!
