Kerry Greenwood, author of the Phryne Fisher Australian mysteries, has created a new heroine: Corinna Chapman, professional baker and occasional amateur sleuth in Melbourne. This series has many of Greenwood's signatures, including humor, deft characterization, an independent heroine, orgasmic descriptions of food, and some of the other kind of orgasm. The plot involves poisonings and a Druid convention, which narrator Louise Siversen carries off with aplomb. Corinna is sexy; the drawl of her ex-druggie baking assistant sounds like everyone's inner 20-something; the shop assistant's Australian Valley Girl intonation is precious; and the witches are all distinct. What a fine, fun job. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
