Kneaded To Death by Winnie Archer

Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1496707727

Everyone swears by Yeast of Eden, the Mexican bread shop in town. But tonight, the only thing on the menu is la muerte . . . Struggling photographer Ivy Culpepper has lots of soul-searching to do since returning to seaside Santa Sofia, California. That is, until the thirty-six-year-old enters a bread making class at Yeast of Eden. Whether it’s the aroma of fresh conchas in the oven, or her instant connection with owner Olaya Solis, Ivy just knows the missing ingredients in her life are hidden among the secrets of Olaya’s bakery . . . But Ivy’s spirits crumble when a missing classmate is suddenly discovered dead in her car. Even more devastating, the prime suspect is Olaya Solis herself. Doubting the woman could commit such a crime, Ivy embarks on a murder investigation of her own to prove her innocence and seize the real killer. As she follows a deadly trail of crumbs around town, Ivy must trust her gut like never before—or someone else could be toast!

My Review:
4 out of 5 stars

Kneaded to Death is the first book in a new series and it definitely shows a lot of promise.  This book had some really enjoyable characters.  Along with Ivy, the main character, I also was particularly fond of the Solis sisters.  The book started out a little slow with pacing but it most definitely picked up later on.  There were several different things happening at once and it really grabbed my attention and kept the pages turning to see how everything would turn out.  The murderer was not easy to figure out, which is always nice.  I like to be surprised and definitely was in this case.  There were several different suspects and we didn't find out the true culprit until the end of the book.  The recipes at the back of the book sounded delicious so I will make sure to give them a try sometime.  Everything was described really well, giving you a picture of Santa Sofia and the bakery.  I am looking forward to reading more books in this series in the future.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
