That’s How the Cookie Crumbles: A Little-Pinch-of-Murder Cozy Mystery
Lydia is the happy owner of a small but thriving bakery, and today is one of those busy days for her and Callie, her assistant. Lydia is also excited to test out a new recipe for a new tasty tart and wants to offer her friend Penelope a chance to give her feedback.
Penelope is a vigorous older lady who lives by herself on the outskirts of town. She’s a slightly eccentric, but friendly figure around the small town where they live. And she is also extremely caring about people she gets to know..
“My friendship with Penelope was fairly new, but we’d gotten pretty close over the past few months. she was just fun and easy to talk to, and our dogs got along marvelously.
I grabbed the tart and opened the door for my dog Pyrus. “Come on, boy!” he jumped from his seat and followed me to the front door. I knocked, waiting for Penelope to answer.
After a few seconds and no answer, I knocked again, but I got the same response.
I looked down at Pyrus who seemed just as confused as I was…”
Lydia wasn’t prepared for the events that would unfold that day.
Could they solve the puzzle before it’s too late? What will become of Penelope’s canine pal Clover?
