*Book Tour + Review* Vangie Vale and the Murdered Macaron by R.L Syme

Vangie Vale and the Murdered Macaron by R. L. Syme

 Release Date is set for August 1. 
Approx - 380 pages
Small towns and gossip go together like flaky crust and sweet pastry cream. Between the police scanners, social media, and the senior center, it's like a zombie apocalypse where the undead consume people's secrets instead of living flesh.
But Vangie Vale wants nothing more than to stay under the radar...especially the police radar.
So when her new bakery becomes linked to a murder investigation, nothing will stop the gossip mill from connecting her to the dead body. Can't have that.
Forced into the role of investigator, this new-in-town bakery owner has to become the very thing she hates--a nosy, small-town gossip--in order to clear her good name, and keep her face off the front page. But when a dating debacle brings her face-to-face with the Sheriff, Vangie can't ignore the fact that one of her macarons was involved in a murder. She has to find the who-dun-it.
Book One in a cozy culinary mystery series from USA Today Bestselling Author, R.L. Syme.

My Review:
3 out of 5 stars

I liked Vangie's character.  She was definitely pretty unique from any other character that I have read in a book with her background as a part time pastor and then owner of her own bakery.  I really enjoyed the Matchbaker part of this book.  I thought it was really interesting how Vangie was able to match someone to a treat depending on their personality and other small things that she observed about the person.  That takes a pretty high level of observation and was interesting to see.  

The mystery behind the murder, even though it didn't hold my attention all the time, surprised me when the killer was revealed.
