Earthly DelightsS her that she is beautiful and she starts receiving threatening letters accusing her of being a scarlet woman Then it is Goths lost girls fraud late nights nerds and beautiful slaves Life for Corinna has suddenly become exciting And she still needs to get her bread out in time for the morning rush Includes recipes Earthly Delights is the first book in this delicious new series by the award winning author who brought us the Phryne Fisher series. I really liked this book though in a way I can't uite figure out why It's a mystery but really solving the mystery was like the truth unveiled itself I do know I liked the characters and the evolution of relationships a whole lotCorinna Chapman owns a bakery in modern day Melbourne Australia She's divorced having kicked her career as an accountant to the curb kicked off her sexy kitten heels and apron eschewed the rigid starvation diet and ended her marriage Now she's gone from skinny and starved to curvy and a purveyor of good baked bread and the consumer of food and drink She's definitely a very likeable woman with a good mind and a kind heart She lives in this apartment building that was eccentrically built in the 1920s with each flat and shop named after a Roman or Greek deity The architecture and details are sumptuous The residents are as eccentric of their apartment house and interestingly enough something in their personality matches the name of their apartment There's a dominatrix a Wiccan shop owner two anorexic girls an alcoholic single man and much Then there are the cats and the dog who actually behave like cats and dogs and not detectives a plus in my estimationThere are a few mysteries intertwined having to do with street people overdosing on heroin murder in their midst who is that guy who runs the charity soup wagon The mysteries intertwine but don't always intersect like real life though the impulse is to draw connections where none exist I think the interesting thing about this lovely book are the people their approaches to life and love and the events that those approaches call It all rises and consumes like a very good loaf of bread A most excellent book the first in the series I like the author's other series very much but I like this one so far even Corinna is very likeable

Having already wasted time reading this I don’t want to waste too much time writing a review It started out uite well but had greatly deteriorated by the end There were elements I liked about this but unfortunately they were far outweighed by things I didn’t like there were too many vampires goths and witches In addition the writing felt choppy and seemed to jump from one thing to the next without any explanationI won’t be continuing on with this series I’ll stick to the Phryne Fisher series which Kerry Greenwood does very well
