The building's new owners are not renewing the bake shop's lease, and Angie is running out of time to find a new location. When one of the town's longtime residents is murdered, Angie finds herself on the suspect list. With the help of her three sisters and a huge orange cat, Angie works to uncover the killer's identity.

Sweet but predictable

This cozy mystery is a pleasant diversion but, alas, I suspected the culprit almost immediately!

Sweet dreams bake shop

I am a very long time fan of Agatha Christie, and have been very surprised that this type of mystery , still exists. Yes , very happy to know that Miss Marple is alive and well baking cupcakes.

Fabulous

This was a fun and interesting story. You become acquainted with the characters so that you can feel the storyline through them. I really enjoyed it and the fact that no foul language was interwoven made certain that I will read everything this author writes. Thank you!

The Sweet Dreams Bake Shop

Any additional comments?

"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."This is a nice, mystery with a bake shop, victorian house, and a death all wrapped up together.I must say I figured out the villan, but not the reason why. The ending left me wanting more.The narration is very well done.

Fun read with promise!

What made the experience of listening to The Sweet Dreams Bake Shop the most enjoyable?

I found the characters believable and interesting as was the story line. That this is the first of a series, you had to expect some lead in about the people being introduced. There is humor, and remember why you thought you would read it ... it has some mysterious circumstances that will appeal to your curiosity.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sweet Dreams Bake Shop?

In spite of all the down stuff happening to the main character, she pulls herself up by her floury shoes and cooks on. Forced to move out of her bakery and find another and "wham" it happens and we love it! Well ... I did.

Which character – as performed by Carla Mercer-Meyer – was your favorite?

The chief cook and bottle washer, she is sweet and able, just like my sister.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Nothin' says lovin' like muffins in the oven.

Any additional comments?

I joke a bit, but really this was a good read considering what the author is trying to do. She introduced her story line, her peopled surroundings, lost a dear friend, and while losing her store decided to try to find out who would do such a dirty trick. I liked it enough to want to read her next book.

I didn't like it

I paid a $1.99 for this book and I got my money's worth. Not only was it very short but the I figured out who did it early on in the book. The villain also had an unrealistic motive. I don't recommend this book.

Couldn't finish the book.

Just starting to listen to this book and find Karen White over-emphasizes each word. It sounds like she struggles to force each word out, which makes it very hard to listen to the book. Her voice alsodoesn't match the characters. It's trembly and her characterizations sound like a cast of elderly people. I first heard her on a Miss Julia book, which is about an elderly woman. The voice in that book was perfect. Anyway, I read each paperback book in this series except Fatal Chapter, which I decided to listen to on audible. I think that was a big mistake. I really enjoyed reading the series, the storyline captivating, but unless I go to the bookstore to buy the last one, I won't know the conclusion as I am struggling to finish the first chapter!! In closing, I feel the narrator can make or break a book. In this case she didn't do the author a favor.
