A Clue in the Crumbs by Lucy Burdette

Hayley and Gloria are delighted when their Scottish pals, Bettina & Violet, bring their UK Bakes! show to film in Key West. The bakers/contestants range from inept to competent to genuine star power. Of course there is a mysterious fire and a murder that is baffling and leaves the elderly ladies in grave danger as Hayley and hunky cop husband Nathan try to find the killer as the show must go on. I enjoyed this book, it did lag in the middle a bit with some running around and an odd character that made sense in the end. Once again, I was bamboozled by the killer-I was so sure I had it figured out but nope, I was wrong. Author Lucy Burdette keeps it real with her world building in Key West-the good and bad are here just like in real life; although living on a houseboat would make the sordid parts easier to handle! I did like the way she incorporated aging, respect for the elderly and choosing your friends as family. Violet and Bettina are great characters and I would read a series just about them…hint hint. 3 stars for book 13 (and the included recipes) as this fun series continues to chug along. I was given a copy and this is my own opinion. #AClueintheCrumbs #NetGalley
