Book 1 in the Bread & Batter Mysteries 
by Karoline Barrett

Two bakery owners get mixed up with murder in the first adventure in the all-new Bread and Batter Mystery series...
As the co-owners of Bread and Batter Bakery in Destiny, New York, Molly Tyler and Olivia Williams have plenty on their plates. Molly is recently divorced and looking for a place to live, but they’re also both preparing for Destiny’s annual Apple Harvest Fair. The bakery has a booth where they’ll be selling not only delicious cupcakes and cider doughnuts, but also tote bags and t-shirts emblazoned with the bakery’s logo.
Tensions rise at the fair when local orchard owner Calista Danforth discovers organizers have assigned her usual booth to Bread and Batter. Although a heated argument ensues between her and Molly, the bakery manages to rake in lots of dough. But when Calista is found strangled to death with one of their t-shirts, Molly is named the prime suspect. Now these two friends must whip up some answers quickly before the future of their business crumbles.


A tasty treat! The Bread & Batter mysteries have a permanent place on my must read list!

Author Karoline Barrett has penned a fantastic story! BUN FOR YOUR LIFE has all the elements that make up a great mystery.

A wonderful cast of characters that include Molly and Olivia, best friends and business partners in the Bread and Batter Bakery, Molly’s ex-husband, a new guy in town, Sean, and more, have me wanting to move to Destiny and work at the Bread and Batter.

Extremely well written, the descriptions became solid scenes in my mind making me feel a part of the story. With twists getting twistier, and the intrigue as hot as cupcake in an oven, I was breathless by the time of the reveal.

If you’re looking for a great mystery, and/or want to start a new series, BUN FOR YOUR LIFE is a must have!

April 2016 can’t get here fast enough with Book two in the series, RAISIN THE DEAD!

    1. Elaine, BUN FOR YOUR LIFE is from a new division of Penguin Group called InterMix and available in eBook format only. Rather or not some day they will turn these titles to paperback, I have no idea.
