Staff Reviews

Like the start of all good cozies, Kate McGuire has left her life in NYC behind to start over in Coral Cay, FL. She manages to get a job at The Cookie House, a bakery that doesn't actually sell cookies. When her new boss is accused of murder, Kate tries to clear his name while also keeping his business open. 

And Then There Were Crumbs is the perfect blend of beach read andcozy mystery. And like all good cozies it's got a great cast of characters,and I loved the way the citizens of Coral Cay all worked together to solve the mystery. Calder has created a real sense of community in her book. Oliver, the dog, is adorable, and I'm looking forward to the 2nd book in the series. - John

She’s a talented pastry chef—with a secret recipe for solving crimes…

Kate McGuire’s life was sweet in Manhattan before she lost her restaurant job and fiancé both. But sometimes that’s just the way the cookie crumbles, and soon she finds herself starting from scratch in the island town of Coral Cay, Florida. It has everything she’s looking for: sunny beaches, friendly locals, and a Help Wanted sign in the bakery shop window. Once she convinces the shop’s crusty owner Sam Hepplewhite to hire her, Kate can’t tie on her apron fast enough. Little does she know that trouble, like warm dough, is on the rise. . .

Stewart Lord is a real estate developer with a taste for a different type of dough: the green kind. He knows that he could make a killing by purchasing the Cookie House from Sam, who flat-out refuses to sell. But when Stewart turns up the heat on Sam—then turns up dead after eating a fresh batch of Sam’s cinnamon rolls—all eyes focus on the town’s beloved bakery. When the police arrest Sam for murder, Kate must somehow prove that her curmudgeonly boss is innocent. Enlisting the help of a team of lovable locals, Kate sets out to catch the real culprit with his hand in the cookie jar…before someone else gets burned.
