Corinna is being upstaged by Best Fresh Bread, a new bread shop just down the street from her own bakery. Meanwhile, her gorgeous lover Daniel has an old friend, George, staying with him. Georgiana Hope is tall, blonde, gorgeous and up to something. Even more disturbing for the reluctant investigator is the strange outbreak of madness which seems to be centered around her end of Melbourne.
Trick or Treat is the fourth installment in the Corinna Chapman series, and is filled with trademark devilish humour, scintillating suspense, engrossing characters and a sprinkle of magic.
Australian author Greenwood's winning fourth Corinna Chapman mystery (after 2009's Devil's Food) boasts a large, eclectic cast of friends and associates of the hefty Melbourne baker, starting with Corinna's handsome and mysterious Israeli boyfriend, Daniel Cohen. Intriguing supporting players include apprentice baker Jason, an ex-heroin addict; aspiring actresses Kylie and Goss, who work in Corinna's bakery, Earthly Delights, while awaiting their big break; Mistress Dread, who runs an s&m shop; Meroe, a witch who operates Sibyl's Cave; and many, many cats. A gathering of witches in Melbourne to celebrate Samhain; a man named Barnabas who calls himself "king of the witches"; a rash of bad drug reactions; a cache of valuables stolen from Greek Jews during WWII; and the appearance of Daniel's beautiful and svelte former girlfriend, Georgiana Hope, add up to a rich confection that nicely balances humor, villainy and a puzzle.
