PROVE IT: MURDER IN THE MIX (Likable Daisy #1)

BOOK BEGINNINGS / FIRST LINES

CHAPTER ONE

“Skillful hands moved quickly and powerfully through yeasted dough – rolling, punching, folding, proving – until each mound achieved just the right bounce when prodded.

Different spices speckled the workspace in turns before being cleared away, first cinnamon, then nutmeg, all spice, cloves, and a hint of cardamom. In the heat of the oven, the rolls ascended in glory before a necessary rest, their heady aroma rising to the apartments above.

The familiar smells first woke Steph in apartment number two, being directly above the bakery, and bleary eyes blinked open for what seemed at least the fifth, and final, time.

‘Mmm, cinnamon buns,’ she gauged. She never tired from this type of awakening, but she would have appreciated it more an hour or two later. She had no way of knowing she wouldn’t taste another for weeks to come, or that tomorrow a different team would gather in the bakery, taking stock of fluids, fibers, and fingerprints. And the only thing leaving in a to-go bag was a corpse.”

One, she misses their cappuccinos.

And two, it was no accident.

But time is running out for the sleep-deprived sleuth. Can she solve the murder and figure out pumping before her maternity leave is up?

With a baby at her breast and a killer at her back, life and living above ‘The Likable Daisy’ will never be the same again.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
