BEACHFRONT BAKERY: A TREACHEROUS TART is book #5 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. The series begins with A KILLER CUPCAKE (Book #1).
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.
A hot-dog eating contest draws massive crowds and is the perfect boost for Allison’s business—until the hot-dog eating champion ends up dead in her bakery.
Worse: the cops determine he was poisoned.
Allison, guilty by association, has no choice but to solve the murder. And the timing couldn’t be worse: the shop next door is closing and, finally, Allison has her one shot to expand into the bakery of her dreams.
But only if she can clear her name, and solve this murder.
Will Allison and her beloved dog prevail?
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.
