A Brilliant Idea For A Cozy And A Delicious Mystery! Laura Bradford's Eclair and Present Danger Is Fantastic!

I received Eclair and Present Danger by Laura Bradford last Tuesday afternoon. It was a welcome surprise to get this June release so early! I settled in to the couch with my blanket, a warm mug of tea and Squirrel the cat. I was in for such a treat with this new first in series. Eclair and Present Danger is a cozy with a huge heart, a fun mystery and a really great cast of characters to get to know. I immediately felt at home and apart of this story. It felt to me as if I was a resident of Serenity Lane, a neighbor to main character Winnie Johnson and her friends. The idea of a dessert delivery service that brings you tasty treats is more then brilliant and so needed!
The first book in the delicious new Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery series from national bestselling author Laura Bradford. With her rent rising faster than her pie crust, bakery owner Winnie Johnson had hoped to be rescued by an inheritance from her wealthy friend and neighbor Gertrude Redenbacher. Instead all she inherits is the widow s hostile hissing tabby, Lovey, and a vintage ambulance, restored by Gertrude s late husband. As her dream crumbles, Winnie makes her final delivery a peach pie to an elderly widower. But she finds Bart Wagner lying on his kitchen floor, smothered by a pillow. To comfort her frightened and grieving neighbors, Winnie comes to the rescue with her baked goods and an idea is born: dessert delivery via her ambulance and a new business called the Emergency Dessert Squad. When she s not speeding to the scenes of dessert emergencies, Winnie is also racing to track down Bart s killer before she needs to call a real ambulance for the next victim..."

So often I wonder how much of an author is in their books, I feel like this one was written from such a great place and by a kindred spirit. I believe this series will become one one of my favorites and I look forward to more tasty emergency treats and visits with the gang from Serenity Lane.
