Vangie Vale and the Murdered Macaron
By R. L. Syme
The Matchmaker Mysteries #1
Hummingbird Books, 2017
Note: Mystery fans, this looks like a good one – and I understand that it’s clean. I didn’t have time to do a review, but I ordered the ebook version on Amazon for only 99¢ and look forward to reading it soon.
Small towns and gossip go together like flaky crust and sweet pastry cream. Between the police scanners, social media, and the senior center, it’s like a zombie apocalypse where the undead consume people’s secrets instead of living flesh.
But Vangie Vale wants nothing more than to stay under the radar…especially the police radar.
So when her new bakery becomes linked to a murder investigation, nothing will stop the gossip mill from connecting her to the dead body. Can’t have that.
Forced into the role of investigator, this new-in-town bakery owner has to become the very thing she hates–a nosy, small-town gossip–in order to clear her good name, and keep her face off the front page. But when a dating debacle brings her face-to-face with the Sheriff, Vangie can’t ignore the fact that one of her macarons was involved in a murder. She has to find the who-dun-it.
