“I loved Vangie Vale and the Murdered Macaron. Vangie’s wry wit and people skills make her the ideal amateur sleuth. And then there are the macarons…yum! R.L. Syme is a fresh voice in the cozy mystery genre. I can’t wait to see what she and Vangie get up to next.”
-Zara Keane, USA Today bestselling author of the Movie Club Mysteries
Small towns and gossip go together like flaky crust and sweet pastry cream. Between the police scanners, social media, and the senior center, nothing is kept secret in this small-town. 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 real murderer.
