Baby Book Review

What do a string of teenage overdoses, a dominatrix, and biblical threats have to do with muffins?

I'll tell you what... But you would have MUCH more fun reading it.  I just finished a book that my friend BrioNI sent to me... she lives in Australia, and was trying to figure out if they have cozy mysteries there... This particular book has the quirky characters, sassy voice and hobby angle (the MC is a baker and there is a lot of talk of technique, plus recipes in the back) of cozies, but the victims aren't so dislikable, exactly--they are addicts, yes, but sympathetic.  And the violence and sex are more graphic than cozies typically have.

The book also had more than one mystery involved... there was a missing girl and the threats.  The MC wears a size 20, and still has some very sexy adventures... It really is a fabulous read, and I strongly recommend it.

In other news:

I am having the AMAZING HaRRY Dolan as a guest soon... keep your eyes peeled.

And I was the person who got to pick this weeks Drabble Dare Image at Burrowers, Books & Balderdash, so of course IT'S NAKED!  That means it is time for YOU to give your hand the drabble test!  Go give it a try!

Is HaRRY Dolan also Mike Dolan? Are they a crime-fighting fraternal duo ?

LTM said...

LOL! This book sounds awesome and exactly the type of "cozy" I'd expect you to recommend... good stuff~ :p

And yay for getting to pick the Balderash image!! Wonderful.

So far as i KNOW, Harry and Mike Dolan have no connection. Their personalities are certainly different.

Leigh- it IS a great book! And it is a TARTISH cozy! teehee

Jenny--the muffins seem varied... she does a lot of other bread too, but the muffins stand out...

Naked? Hart, I'm shocked. Okay, not really. I'd be shocked otherwise!

That book sounds pretty, uh, interesting. I do like muffins.

Re, "What do a string of teenage overdoses, a dominatrix, and biblical threats have to do with muffins?": Is the word 'mule' involved in the answer? If not, I don't know.

All the best, Boonie
