It's the sweet smells of baked goods and perfume in book two of the Bread and Batter Mysteries. Molly Tyler and Olivia Williams own Bread and Batter Bakery where they make scrumptious bagels and cupcakes for their customers. Molly has a lot to worry about when she sees he mother lunching with Phillip Baldelli of the Library Advisory Board. Molly's mother is also the library director, a position that someone else wants....badly they are discussing the expansion of the library.
After their meeting they are seen arguing in the parking lot and Serefina,owner of her own perfume company comes to town who is grand-niece to Phillip finds him dead in his home. It is brought to light that someone was threatening Phillip not give money for the expansion of the library. The police discover that Phillips death is suspicious and protesters rally around the library, all the while inside Bread and Batter the customers debate the library's expansion.
The romance and drama with Molly and Detective Sean Corsino, who is investigating the case is heating up with romance and drama when he is in a accident and in the hospital. When Molly's mother Annie is found to be the number one suspect for the murder of Phillip. Molly knows that someone is trying to set her mother up and Molly finds unconventional ways and finds herself in danger to find the real killer when she must sniff out a growing list of suspects that go way back, she must find a way to survive to live to bake another day.
A Lighthearted mystery full of drama, a little romance and a killer with a agenda. Cupcakes and bagels and Bread and Batter Bakery are Molly's passion but finding the person who is framing her mother even if it means putting her mother on the suspect list makes Molly a very likable ameteur sleuth. Foodies will adore Raisin the Dead. I can't wait to visit Bread and Batter Bakery with Molly,Sean and her family and friends in the next book.
