Book Tour Review: Crust No One (Ends 4/14)

Crust No One
A Bread Shop Mystery #2
by Winnie Archer
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Business is booming at Yeast of Eden. But with a deadly mystery taking over
the seaside town of Santa Sofia, the Mexican bread shop can’t
possibly leaven a killer’s appetite . . .
For once, Ivy Culpepper feels fulfilled. An apprenticeship at Yeast of
Eden has opened her world to time-honored baking techniques under
owner Olaya Solis’s guidance—as well as the freshest small-town
gossip, courtesy of chatty regulars known as the Blackbird Ladies.
Ivy even begins accepting that she and restaurateur Miguel Baptista
may never again rekindle their romance—despite the undeniable
tension between them . . .
But she’s tied to Miguel again when his trusted produce supplier goes
missing. Old Hank Riviera’s financial troubles would make anyone
consider running away forever. And with his relationship woes, there
are plenty of people who might want to see Hank disappear. As Ivy,
with the help of her octogenarian sidekick, turns to the loose-lipped
Blackbird Ladies for leads, she soon finds herself caught in a web of
lies stickier than a batch of Olaya’s popular pastries . . .
The second book in the Bread Shop Mystery series finds our cozy mystery solver, Ivy Culpepper, and now ex-boyfriend, Miguel Baptista, fates twisted together again as she works to solve the disappearance of Mustache Hank, the produce supplier to Miguel’s restaurant. Already that sounds like a tongue twister; this mystery is riddled with just the right amount of twists and turns for a solid plot. Thoroughly enjoyed all the characters, especially lovely octogenarian, Olaya, and the Blackbird Ladies who are the gossipers providing the lovely spatter of juicy tidbits to help Ivy along the way to solve the mystery!
The second book can easily be read as a standalone due to the author providing the right amount of background information for the reader. Thoroughly enjoyable read for any cozy mystery reader; thankful I received this as part of a book tour.
The indefatigable Winnie Archer is a middle school teacher by

with both yoga and chocolate, adores pumpkin spice lattes, is devoted
to her five kids and husband, and can’t believe she’s lucky
enough to be living the life of her dreams.
