--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Murder in the Manor)


BEACHFRONT BAKERY: A KILLER CUPCAKE is the debut novel in a charming and hilarious new cozy mystery series by #1 bestselling author Fiona Grace, whose bestselling Murder in the Manor (A Lacey Doyle Cozy Mystery) has nearly 200 five star reviews.


Allison Sweet, 34, a sous chef in Los Angeles, has had it up to here with demeaning customers, her demanding boss, and her failed love life. After a shocking incident, she realizes the time has come to start life fresh and follow her lifelong dream of moving to a small town and opening a bakery of her own.


When Allison spots a charming, vacant storefront on the boardwalk near Venice, she wonders if she could really start life anew. Feeling like it’s a sign, and a time to take a chance in life, she goes for it.


Yet Allison did not anticipate the wild ride ahead of her: the boardwalk, filled with fun and outrageous characters, is pulsing with life, from the Italian pizzeria owners on either side of her who vie for her affection, to the fortune tellers and scheming rival bakery owner nearby. Allison yearns to just focus on her delicious new pastry recipes and keep her struggling bakery afloat—but when a murder occurs right near her shop, everything changes.


Implicated, her entire future at stake, Allison has no choice but to investigate to clear her name. As an orphaned dog wanders into her life, a devoted new sidekick with a knack for solving mysteries, she starts her search.


Will they find the killer? And can her struggling bakery survive?


A hilarious cozy mystery series, packed with twists, turns, romance, travel, food and unexpected adventure, the BEACHFRONT BAKERY series will keep you laughing and turning pages late into the night as you fall in love with an endearing new character who will capture your heart.


Books #2 (A MURDEROUS MACAROON), #3 (A PERILOUS CAKE POP), #4 (A DEADLY DANISH), #5 (A TREACHEROUS TART), and book #6 (A CALAMITOUS COOKIE) are also available!

Fiona Grace fix

I’m hoping for more Tuscan vineyard and Sicilian books! In the meantime, this is a lovely Fiona Grace fix.

I am yet to fall in love with the main character, but intrigued to see how she settles in to her new life, career and community. I loved the colourful characters, and I really liked Fat Tony. I feel like it’s more of setting the tone book and perhaps more adventures are yet to come.

Don’t bother

The fact that the author couldn’t be bothered to research crème brûlée’s and how they are eaten (definitely not hot from the oven by the way) meant that this was already a difficult read. It was very childlike and rushed. I would save yourself the time and effort and read something else.

Not at all relaxing

Sorry but far too shouty for me for the first 10 mins, not good for a book you want to relax to sleep to! Thank god it was free won’t be listening to anymore!
