From Amazon: The third instalment of the cozy Baker’s Rise series is here, with Flora and Reggie facing some ghosts from the past! Fresh from her latest investigation, Lady of the Manor Flora is looking forward to a quiet Autumn, writing her children’s stories, serving customers in the tearoom, and learning how to make and decorate a traditional Christmas cake in time for the festive season.
What she doesn’t anticipate is the arrival of her ex-husband, declaring his undying love for her! Is he as lovesick as he declares, or does he have another reason for seeking Flora out? Of course, in true Baker’s Rise style, things get rather more complicated rather quickly, and Flora finds herself in the eye of a whole new storm. Packed with humour and suspense, colourful characters and a sprinkle of romance, this next Baker’s Rise Mystery will certainly leave you hungry for more! (Includes a Christmas Cake recipe!) Note from the author: Since the same quirky cast of characters feature in each installment of the Baker’s Rise Mysteries, the books are best enjoyed when read in order!
My Review: I found this mystery to be cozy and loving, along with a few never do well type of people to add drama into the mix. Romance is light yet ever present, and the mystery of certain events leaving the reader waiting to know how things would turn out.
