Author: Nancy.J. Parra
Series: Book 3 A Bakers Treat
Publisher: Berkley
Source: Received for Review from Publisher

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Rating: Five Stars
Reviewed by: Tina



It's a hectic time for baker, Toni at her bakery, Baker's Treat in Oiltop, Kansas, a gluten free bakery in the middle of wheat country. It's the Christmas season and Toni would love nothing better to get all her baking done and shipped out and delivered  by Christmas but with snow storms and murder and mayhem it may seem down right impossible. Toni's brother, Tim finds himself in trouble when a dead man was found in a local hotel managed by Toni's best friend and it is discovered that someone used her brother's name to check in to various hotels for the sole purpose of selling drugs.

Grandma Ruth, a spunky woman in her 90's along with her fateful scooter with her previous life as a investigative reporter who still writes a blog tries to convince Toni she needs to help her brother and investigate the crime and find out who could possibly be framing him with a little help from Grandma of coarse. Toni is at first hesitant with being busy with her bakery but when Tim is then arrested she has has enough and decides to start investigating.  With Grandma Ruth at her side Toni is on a mission to keep her brother from going to prison and keep her bakery in business.

 I just love Grandma Ruth. She gives this series such excitement and keeps you turning the page. A woman in her 90's, a investigative reporter, with spunk and moves on her handy scooter like it's on fire. Toni, who's passion for baking and her bakery is paramount who is hesitant about finding love again after her divorce. This book was a delight and such a treat to read. Like the first line says "I love my family, but there are times I sincerely wish they would take a day off. I so relate to Toni that way. Solving crime from a bakery was a prefect fit for Toni and this reader loved to read about Toni and her helpers preparing the tasty baked goods. Atmosphere, setting and the characters along with yummy treats and murder make Flourless to Stop Him a must read.
