If anything can be said about endearingly predictable Margo Hemsley, it's that she always serves elaborate desserts at her mystery book club meetings. That's why everyone fears the worst after she doesn't pick up her order from Bernie and Libby and skips out on the monthly gathering. The Simmons sisters can't imagine their acquaintance vanishing like a character from one of her favorite novels, at least not willingly.

When the search ends with the discovery of a dead body, Bernie and Libby agree to help the nine remaining book club members prove their friend was murdered. But a speed read through Margo's background reveals there was more to the victim than harmless hobbies and frumpy cardigans would suggest. As the sleuthing sisters unearth scandalous secrets about the book club members, they'll have to determine who was connected to Margo's shady dealings--and who sent her to an early grave . . .
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Crawford's delectable 16th mystery featuring sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons (after 2019's A Catered New Year's Eve), art restorer Margo Hemsley fails to arrive at A Little Taste of Heaven, the sisters' shop in Longely, N.Y., to pick up the pastry order she was supposed to bring to a book club meeting later that same evening. The next day, Margo's friends Betsy and Tom Glassberg visit the shop. Betsy and Tom, who are worried that Margo has gone missing, ask amateur sleuths Bernie and Libby to investigate, the police having little interest in the case. The Glassbergs also want them to check that two Thomas Eakins portraits Margo was working on restoring for them are in her house. The sisters discover the portraits have vanished along with Margo. Descriptions of mouthwatering baked goods and good-natured banter between the sisters enhance their search for answers. Cozy fans will be tempted to curl up with a hot beverage and a pastry while reading this one. Agent: Evan Marshall, Evan Marshall Agency. (Jan.)"
