About A Half-Baked Murder

The first book in a new cozy mystery series, A Half-Baked Mystery, features a different type of bakery. Chloe, a trained pastry chef, has moved back home to Azalea Bay, CA after a broken engagement and a scathingly bad review of her food. After experimenting with cannabis treats for her ill grandmother, Chloe and her Aunt Dawn decide to open a bakery featuring the legal treats.

But then the town jerk is murdered and Aunt Dawn is the main suspect. Now it’s up to Chloe to clear Aunt Dawn.

My thoughts about A Half-Baked Murder

I loved the relationships between Chloe, her Grandma Rose, and Aunt Dawn. They so obviously love each other and feel fiercely protective of each other.

This gives you all of the fun cozy tropes:

Small town/hometown

Everyone knows everything about everyone else

Small biz

Adorable animal sidekick

Delicious descriptions of baked goods

Quirky family

Light romance

Dancing dog competitions!

In closing

A Half-Baked Murder is a fast-paced and fun delicious treat of a light-hearted read.

About Emily George

Emily George is an Australian author who writes modern murder mysteries that feature her favourite F words: female friendships, family and furry friends. She also likes alliteration.

Like her sleuths, she’s an elder Millennial who grew up on a steady diet of late 90’s romantic comedies, Spice Girls songs and Babysitter’s Club books. When she’s not figuring out creative ways to kill people (fictionally, of course) she enjoys knitting, baking, playing video games, and listening to true crime podcasts.

She resides in Canada with her husband.
