Brownies & Betrayal by Heather Justesen


Sometimes weddings can be murder. Pastry chef Tess Crawford thought moving from Chicago to quiet Silver Springs, Arizona would simplify her life. That was before she found the body of a woman with whom she had traded heated words the previous night, left her fingerprints on the murder weapon, and came under attack for trying to clear her name.

When her cheating ex-fiance shows up, intent on convincing her to come back to work for him, Tess—armed with an extra batch of éclairs—decides to take control and solve the mystery herself, with the help of a few friends. But will that be enough to save her when she gets too close and the killer decides it’s safer to get her out of the way?

“A well-written story with appropriate language for all readers. The story maintains a steady pace with a lot of quick action. I'm not sure you'll be able to guess the ending; so, if you like to play detective you'll love this book. The recipes included sound yummy and are calorie free; unless, you follow up, make them, and eat them.”–Amazon reviewer, Bab
