A Peach of a Murder
A Peach of a Murder: A Fresh-Baked Mystery | Livia J. Washburn
4 posts | 2 read | 10 to read
All year round, retired schoolteacher Phyllis Newsom is as sweet as peach pie-except during the Peach Festival, whose blue ribbon has slipped through Phyllis's fingers more than once... Everyone's a little shook up when the corpse of a no-good local turns up underneath a car in a local garage. But even as Phyllis engages in some amateur sleuthing, she won't let it distract her from out-baking her rivals and winning the upcoming Peach Festival contest. She and all the other contestants guard their secret, original recipes with their lives-and talk a whole lot of trash. With her unusual Spicy Peach Cobbler, Phyllis hopes to knock 'em dead. But that's just an expression-never in her wildest dreams did she think her cobbler would actually kill a judge. Now, she's suspected of murder-and she's got to bake this case wide open.

Mehso-so

Phyllis wants to win the baking contest at the annual Peach Festival. Unfortunately, murder gets in the way. First in a cozy mystery series featuring a retired teacher as the amateur sleuth. I was not too crazy over the MC - Phyllis was a bit judgmental at times. Her son works for the police, and yet she seemed offended when he would not necessarily give her all of the info. Oh well…some cozies are better than others. #19822022 #2006

Starting this series today so that I can read The Candy Cane Cupcake Killer, which was a gift from my last #litsyswap at Christmas time. I love cozy mysteries, by sometimes I accidentally set myself up for a big series. Usually I find a book in the middle of the series, or the most recent book, get super excited, and then find out I have a of back story to read. 😂
