Dead on Doughnuts
A murdered chef. A poisoned pastry. Can a young barista deliver a killer their just desserts?
Maddy dreams of opening her own detective agency with her best friend. Fresh off her A-levels and looking to save up funds, she and her BFF take a gap-year job serving coffee to rich tourists at an Austrian ski resort. But when someone tampers with one of Maddy’s sweet creations to snuff out a snooty pastry chef, the offending doughnut becomes a recipe for disaster…
With her dreams of becoming a PI in serious danger, Maddy has next to no time to preserve the cafe's reputation and clear her name. But as the suspect list rises and the trail of breadcrumbs grows stale, her future rests on bringing the killer to justice.
"A good read. The girls have just gotten their amazing A level results and are now on their way to Austria to work in a coffee shop during their gap year for a down payment on their dream - a PI Agency! They meet Sophie who is on her way to take up a position as Head Pastry Chef at the same resort. What they don't expect is to find that her job had been given to the meanest girl they all know. Events spiral and the mean girl ends up dead. Who killed her? Was it for her fortune? As the girls investigate they come across a diabolical scheme".
Baa'd to the Bone
A sheepdog in training. A flock under threat. Can he find a killer before the case unravels?
Beau dreams of being a champion sheepdog just like his aunt. With the help of new livestock friends and a kind-hearted farmer, he vows to lead the herd proudly through the lush valleys of South Wales. But when one of the sheep goes missing, Beau never expected a woolly crime scene…
While his aunt warns him not to get too friendly with the flock, his connection with the sheep gets him both respect and a target on his back. As the brave pup frantically sniffs for clues, he's got one chance to solve the mystery before the farm starts counting sheep for all the wrong reasons.
"A great read. Something for all ages especially if you have someone in the family that loved the film Babe or Charlotte's Web but all told from a young dog's point of view. A wonderful warm mix of characters that make each personality stand out and a a plot that even the youngest member can read, understand and enjoy. No gory details!"
