Kneaded To Death-Winnie Archer-Book Review/Giveaway

About the book (provided by Great Escapes Book Tours)
Struggling photographer Ivy Culpepper has lots of soul-searching to do since returning to seaside Santa Sofia, California. That is, until the thirty-six-year-old enters a bread making class at Yeast of Eden. Whether it’s the aroma of fresh conchas in the oven, or her instant connection with owner Olaya Solis, Ivy just knows the missing ingredients in her life are hidden among the secrets of Olaya’s bakery . . .
But Ivy’s spirits crumble when a missing classmate is suddenly discovered dead in her car. Even more devastating, the prime suspect is Olaya Solis herself. Doubting the woman could commit such a crime, Ivy embarks on a murder investigation of her own to prove her innocence and seize the real killer. As she follows a deadly trail of crumbs around town, Ivy must trust her gut like never before—or someone else could be toast!

The indefatigable Winnie Archer is a middle school teacher by day, and a writer by night. Born in a beach town in California, she now lives in an inspiring century old house in North Texas and loves being surrounded by real-life history.

And I thought
A great start for a new series.  Ivy Culpepper and her friends from the small seaside town of Sante Sofia, California welcome the reader to a fast paced and mystery filled story. 
The cover of Kneaded To Death would have sold me.  I looks like a charming place to visit.  But beware there is murder a foot.  
I just loved Ivy Culpepper and what a cute name.  I found myself calling her Culpepper Along with her litte dog Agatha she searches for answers to not only the death of a fellow study but the 6 month old death of accidental death of her mother comes to be questioned.  
Ivy is helped in her quest for answers by an 80 something year old Mrs. Penny Brandford who partners with Ivy on stakeouts and comes up with a plan to capture the killer or killers.  
Of all the characters in the book I just loved good 'ole Mrs. Brandford!  She's spry thing that 
 uses her walking stick for a weapon when necessary. 
And Ivy does have a love interest Miquel the owner of the local Mexican restaurant.There is a little history there.  The reader is left expecting a bit of romance in book two of the series.  
The author gives you a little treat at the end with two recipes! 

I am looking forward to more in this series! 

I received a complimentary e-copy from Net Galley and Great Escapes Book Tours.
