Known for its mouthwatering traditional breads, the Yeast of Eden bakery has gained fame across Northern California’s coast. Now the shop is bound for Reality TV—but a murder may kill its reputation . . .
People come to the beach town of Santa Sofia as much for the healing properties of Yeast of Eden’s breads as for a vacation getaway. And now a cable food channel has selected the bakery as a featured culinary delight for a new show. Baking apprentice Ivy Culpepper is excited as the crew arrives, ready to capture all the ins and outs of the renowned bread shop. But instead they capture something much harder to stomach: the attempted murdered of the show’s cameraman just outside Yeast of Eden . . .
With no motive and no clues, and the town craving answers, it will be up to Ivy to sift through the evidence to find the truth. But she’ll have to move quickly before someone else is targeted or the wrong person gets the heat—and the business collapses like a deflated soufflé, right before her eyes.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Ivy has fully embraced her new role in the bread shop just in time for a reality t.v. show to start filming what they do. Olaya is excited d about the chance at least until she gets sick. This means Ivy has to take over which would not be a problem if things went well. During a break the cameraman is hit by a car that takes off. She starts asking questions but then has doubts as similar car incidents start to occur to her as well. No clue how they are LinkedIn she plows on anyways. Then one of the hosts is found dead making things even more complicated. None of the clues are lining up for her for the longest time then it all starts to fall together with a surprising conclusion. This all makes for fascinating cozy that is full of good food and friends working together to solve the mystery. A pleasant read for fans of the genre. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
