Éclair and Present Danger

I truly enjoyed the scenarios that the author created and thought that they were very clever.

Éclair and Present Danger is well written and it is an original concept.
Well let me tell you, Laura just gained herself a new lifelong fan! ÉCLAIR AND PRESENT DANGER is a smart, snappy read and I was struck over and over again how absolutely creative the author is.
~Cinnamon and Sugar and A Little Bit of Murder
This book is fast paced the way that I like it. Just the right amount of suspense and mystery.
…a fun new mystery with a feisty cast of characters.

The first book in the delicious new Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery series from national bestselling author Laura Bradford.
With her rent rising faster than her pie crust, bakery owner Winnie Johnson had hoped to be rescued by an inheritance from her wealthy friend and neighbor Gertrude Redenbacher. Instead all she inherits is the widow’s hostile hissing tabby, Lovey, and a vintage ambulance, restored by Gertrude’s late husband. As her dream crumbles, Winnie makes her final delivery—a peach pie to an elderly widower. But she finds Bart Wagner lying on his kitchen floor, smothered by a pillow.
To comfort her frightened and grieving neighbors, Winnie comes to the rescue with her baked goods—and an idea is born: dessert delivery via her ambulance and a new business called the Emergency Dessert Squad. When she’s not speeding to the scenes of dessert emergencies, Winnie is also racing to track down Bart’s killer—before she needs to call a real ambulance for the next victim…

My review;

"Éclair and Present Danger" by author Laura Bradford is a really wonderful book. The story grabs you from the first page and keeps you entertained until the last page. This is the first book in this new series called An Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery by Laura Bradford. Winnie Johnson is just about to lose her bakery because her rent is going up. She thought that one of her friend's death would give her an inheritance but, there was no money. Just when she has just about lost all hope she brings one of her peach pies to a neighbor. She finds him murdered and her life is never the same. From then on she starts a dessert delivery service. But, even while doing this she is looking for the murderer. Will she be able to find the killer before he gets another victim? I give this book a 5/5. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I was given this book for a review and these are my opinions.
