In Melbourne, Earthly Delights Bakery owner Corinna Chapman is happy about her life especially with her lover Israeli investigator Daniel until her estranged mother Starshine, a throwback to the 1960s hippies arrives hysterical. Her equally hippie spouse (and Corinna's father) Sunlight has vanished. Apparently the faithful Sunlight must have a supernova with a midlife crisis that has him on a quest to find a younger woman. However besides coping with a weeping mom, two bakery employees and some weird monks become ill after drinking poisoned tea. Corinna and Daniel with the help of a diverse eccentric crew search for her runaway dad while also tracing the source of the toxic tea, which leads to an anti-obese cult. The third Chapman cozy (see EARTHLY DELIGHTS and HEAVENLY PLEASURES) is a wonderful Australian adventure starring an interesting heroine who is the total opposite of Kerry Greenwood's superstar Phryne Fisher. The story line is lighthearted fun as Corinna goes from enjoying life to a near breakdown in a heartbeat when Starshine arrives. However, she has learned somewhat to cope with her star-sun shiny communal hippie parents so searching for dear old dad while struggling with poisoned tea and an anti fat cult targeting the pleasantly plump Corinna has added unneeded stress to her life. Still she, her boyfriend and their horde turn Melbourne into a personal playground in this fun lighthearted farce. Harriet Klausner

This is part of a charming series that takes place in Australia. It is part mystery, part romance, and has interesting story lines. Too bad it is not well known in America. If you like Janet Evanovich, you'd probably like this series.

Corinna Chapman will pull you into her more than interesting life, her eccentric lifestyle, surroundings and the flat mates in her apartment house "Insula", will keep you intrigued. I was hooked after reading the first of the series: "Earthly Delights", and plan to finish this mystery series.

enjoy the balance especially of the supporting cast like a long running tv series where the city becomes part of the cast too like the big easy or a western too

I thoroughly enjoyed Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher series...I love period cozies! I wasn't sure I would like this series ste in contemporary Melbourne. But I am pleased to say it's as good as Phryne Fisher. The quirky characters, the clever plots and Corinna's recipes make this a delightful series.
