Another modern novel -- drugs, murder....
There are too many sad tails of drugs and murder these days. This is not the Phryne Fisher historical novel that Kerry Greenwood is known for. Phryne is a smart, fun loving, mischievous, lady crime solver of the 1920's. Most of the many Phryne stories are well researched with lots of interesting twists and turns, a good supporting cast of charataers, and great settings. Corinna Chapman is a fat baker with good intentions. The setting is interesting. Some of the characters are good. But the modern storyline has been worn out by what seems like hundreds of other authors. Greenwood's character Chapman claims not to listen to the "news" with its standard lineup of drugs, murder, and one sad story after another. Yet that pretty much sums up all the modern murder mysteries. Let's see who can write the saddest tail. Too bad Phryne Fisher has gotten so tired.Was this review helpful?

Good beach Read!
If you like baking especially in Italian style, this book is for you. A quick read, but was disappointed in all of the grammatical errors.
Over all a good one!
