Synopsis: The author of Bun for Your Life returns to Destiny, New York, where bakery owners and amateur sleuths Molly Tyler and Olivia Williams never crumble under pressure…
While the rest of Destiny is focused on the arrival of an upper crust perfume mogul, Molly is more concerned about what’s on the front page of the newspaper: her mother. Library director Anne Tyler was photographed at the most romantic restaurant in town having a cozy dinner with library advisory board member Philip Baldelli. But there’s more for Molly to worry about after Philip is found dead a few days later.
When Detective Sean Corsino zeroes in on Anne as a person of interest in the case, it turns down the heat on his budding romance with Molly. But after he’s injured during the course of his investigation, Molly and Olivia must step in to sift through the clues and clear Anne’s name.
Review: I loved the first book in this series, BUN FOR YOUR LIFE, and this second installment keeps me enjoying the adventures of Molly and Olivia. 
Molly's sense of humor is still as evident as it was in the first book, and she still has humorous moments without even trying, as well. 
I was a little disappointed that the majority of the book seemed to focus on the romance between Sean and Molly, rather than solving Philip's murder. I hope the next book will return to being more about the mystery, with romance being a bit more incidental.
In spite of those misgivings, I was still able to spend a few enjoyable hours with this book, and would recommend it to all cozy fans!
