Great British Bakeoff Murder Mystery?
Yeah, it’s as good as it sounds.
It’s got all the baking drama you’d hope for as well as some fun, complex characters. The book starts off with a murder and we are then thrown back to when the competition started to meet our 6 bakers and the two hosts. As we follow them through their bakes, we slowly get details on their backstories as well as the history of the Vermont manor and what led up to the murder.
This is exactly what you want a cozy mystery to be. It starts off with a bang and then gives you all the clues to solve the crime. The pacing is great, especially if you’ve binged Great British Bakeoff – it has all the right beats. It’s more on the fun side than the heavy mystery side but that makes it the perfect beach read.
