Set in Essex, this is the story of ex journalist/reality tv star, Cherry Hinton, who has fled to Brentwood and opened a cake shop in order to forget her past and move on. But when a murder victims sister turns up at her shop claiming that the person who was imprisoned for the crime might be innocent, Cherry can’t control her investigative nature and ends up in all sorts of trouble…

I really enjoyed this book; it was a light and funny story that I read in one go. It was a great cosy mystery and I really enjoyed that it was set in the UK and mentioned locations close to home. I also liked that it made fun of the amount of reality TV shows we have now.

I will definitely be on the lookout for the next instalment.

Thanks to @farragobooks for my copy and @NBmagazineUK for making me aware of this book!
