Books, Brownies, and Murder (A Story Tree Cozy Mystery #1), by Lori Woods (author), Jennifer Groberg (narrator)

Demy Watts, February 2020

Clary St. James runs a bookstore cafe, the Story Tree, in Valley Springs. Her chef is Marie, a few years older, originally from France, and an absolutely killer baker.

Which is great for business, until someone dies of rat poison that somehow found its way into one of Marie's brownies.

We meet an array of interesting local characters, some likable, some cantankerous, and one a bit more devious and less balanced than the town residents, including Clary, suspect.

We're not definitively told that the local police noticed early on why Marie wasn't a likely suspect, but I'm happy to say this is not a case of the police being stupid so the amateur sleuth can look smart.

Also, Clary doesn't do anything alone that she ought to have known was dangerous.

It's a light, entertaining cozy mystery, enjoyable and fun.

I received a free copy of this audiobook, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
