No one has less interest in mysteries than Corinna Chapman, who has bread to bake, but they seem to be arising spontaneously in the vicinity of her bakery, Earthly Delights. Between the mouth-watering distractions of loaves and muffins, of Jason her apprentice and Horatio the cat, she's keeping an eye on the door as she waits for the exciting Daniel, her recently acquired lover, to walk back into her life.
After a week of no communication Daniel finally returns, bruised and battered from a run-in with a so-called messiah. But disturbing things are also happening close to home. Juliette Lefebvre, the owner of Heavenly Pleasures and maker of the most gorgeous chocolates in town, is distraught. Someone is spiking her very expensive chocolates. Is it an elaborate and horrible joke, or is it a warning that worse may yet happen?
Heavenly Pleasures is the second delicious instalment in Kerry Greenwood's new Corinna Chapman series.

Lose all thought of New Year's diets, you who enter Australian author Greenwood's delectable second Corinna Chapman cozy (after 2007's Earthly Delights). Corinna, formerly an XL-sized accountant in power suit and kitten heels, runs a downtown Melbourne artisan bakery, attached to a tantalizing Roman-themed apartment building housing a rich assortment of eccentrics. These include leather queen Mistress Dread; Corinna's omnivorous reforming junkie apprentice, Jason; Meroe, a Wiccan witch; Corinna's private zooful of arrogant cats; and Daniel, her gorgeous trout-pool eyed ex-Israeli soldier lover, who providentially for Corinna adores 'em supersized and he cooks, too. When someone starts injecting a neighboring shop's lavishly described Belgian chocolates with chili sauce, Corinna leaves kneading for detecting, while Daniel struggles to unmask a slithering, slavering self-proclaimed boy messiah. Greenwood's yeasty souffl of unlikely but satisfying elements quickly thickens over the top, but who cares it all just leads to Corinna's recipe for Chocolate Orgasm Muffins.
Enjoyed immensely love the main characterless. Have read all wish there were more of this series love all you books .would love to the series on tv Margaret gray
Great for making the soul sing and the body purr. Except for the c word ( don't do it again or I'll stop buying your books) love the variety of characters and their particular foibles. Being Victorian I love the locales used in the story and love to read of the juicy parts of Melbourne environs. The cooking and food references are wonderful, nearly inspiring me to enjoy cooking. I'd far rather read!!!!
