Deadly Delights: A Bookish Baker Mystery
Teddie is excited to begin the summer by entering a pie into the baking contest her town hosts every year. Unfortunately, one of the judges is Lester, who is known for harassing every woman in town, but it’s still a shock when his body is discovered. To make matters worse, between the evidence and the new widow throwing blame onto Teddie and her young neighbor, they’re the likely suspects. Teddie has to rise to the occasion again to prove that she and her friend are innocent of murder.
Laura Jensen Walker delivers another delightful mystery, which finds Teddie putting her skills as a mystery writer to use in a new challenge by chasing after another killer. The town is so vividly created and the characters are so engaging that Walker creates the warm feeling of a community. Teddie is an opinionated and strong-willed personality, and she doesn’t hold back until she finds the answers. Walker has a grounded voice that makes this a mystery you want to spend a lazy day reading. Deadly Delights is humorous and clever, creating a good time from beginning to end, with every moment spent with Teddie making you want to go sleuthing with her.
