Synopsis

Corinna Chapman is living her dream. She’s left the buttoned-down world of accounting behind—along with a less-than-lovable husband—to open a bakery in downtown Melbourne. The neighborhood could be nicer—performing CPR on an unconscious junkie is no way for a baker to start her morning—but the neighbors are something else again. Corinna’s bakery, Earthly Delights, is on the ground floor of a particularly eclectic apartment building, whose occupants promise to make life interesting. A mysterious moralist has taken offense at the building's professional dominatrix; poisoned pen letters find their way to all residents; suddenly more heroin addicts seem to overdosing than usual; and then there are the vampires. Someone’s got to get to the bottom of it all, and it might as well be Corinna.

Earthly Delights is the first in a delicious new series by the award-winning author of the Phryne Fisher mysteries. A cozy, quirky, unconventional antipodean mystery.

W hile Australian Greenwood’s historical series starring iconoclastic feminist sleuth Phryne Fisher (Cocaine Blues , etc.) has spawned a devoted following for its blend of detection and Wodehousian humor, her contemporary series, which makes its U.S. debut with this book, is unlikely to have the ...

It is probably inevitable and no doubt unfair to compare this new series introducing Corinna Chapman to Greenwood's long-running series featuring Phryne Fisher.
