“The first book in the delicious new Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery series from national bestselling author Laura Bradford.
With her rent rising faster than her pie crust, bakery owner Winnie Johnson had hoped to be rescued by an inheritance from her wealthy friend and neighbor Gertrude Redenbacher. Instead all she inherits is the widow’s hostile hissing tabby, Lovey, and a vintage ambulance, restored by Gertrude’s late husband. As her dream crumbles, Winnie makes her final delivery—a peach pie to an elderly widower. But she finds Bart Wagner lying on his kitchen floor, smothered by a pillow.
To comfort her frightened and grieving neighbors, Winnie comes to the rescue with her baked goods—and an idea is born: dessert delivery via her ambulance and a new business called the Emergency Dessert Squad. When she’s not speeding to the scenes of dessert emergencies, Winnie is also racing to track down Bart’s killer—before she needs to call a real ambulance for the next victim…”
This was another book that was sent to me by Berkley last summer.
I really enjoyed it. I like that the characters were younger and more relatable to someone like me. I find that when cozy mysteries main character already has kids and even grandkids, they are a little harder for me to get into. That’s probably because they arent relatable for me.
There was enough romance in this to be cute.
I also loved the storyline. How cute is the entire idea of having an emergency vehicle as an emergency dessert delivery business. Adorable!
I liked this book. In fact I can’t wait to read the next ones!
