The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
This week was another busy one. Three new sign-up posts went live and two tours started this week, which kept me plenty of busy. And I did some marketing assistant work. Some other small things popped up, and I had some meh days this week. Then I got a headache yesterday.
On Monday evening my sister and her boyfriend visited and we had a fun time chatting and drinking tea and they even bought a cake. I also had made a cake so I gave them two pieces to take home with them. I am reading two good books, but not making a lot of progress as I had little time to read this week. I don’t really have a lot of news to tell as I mostly did a lot of work and that’s it.
Random Picture(s) of the Week
This is one of the chocolate bars I am really liking lately. Milka is a pretty popular chocolate brand here. This bar has tiny dried pieces of raspberry, pieces of hazelnut and small pieces of dark chocolate. It’s really good. Another one of my favourite chocolate flavours is chocolate with praliné. What is your favourite chocolate bar?

by Kathy Cranston

You can find Baking is Murder on Goodreads
Newly redundant and recently divorced, there’s never been a better time for Jessie Henderson to pack up her life in the city and move to Springdale, the small town where she spent childhood summers with her Aunt Bee.
Luckily for Jessie, Springdale is every bit as quirky and idyllic as she remembers, and Bee’s baking is just as mouth-watering.
Then the unthinkable happens and there’s a murder on the outskirts of town. Worse still, Jessie’s new friend is the prime suspect. The cops think the case is cut-and-dry, but Jessie’s gut tells her there’s more going on than meets the eye. Can she get to the bottom of it?
Baking is Murder is the first book in the Bee’s Bakehouse Cozy Mystery series. Each book is a standalone mystery.

In the debut of a delightful cozy mystery series, Sarah Fox introduces a charming new heroine who finds herself in a sticky situation: stacking pancakes, pouring coffee, and investigating murder.
When Marley McKinney’s aging cousin, Jimmy, is hospitalized with pneumonia, she agrees to help run his pancake house while he recovers. With its rustic interior and syrupy scent, the Flip Side Pancake House is just as she pictured it—and the surly chef is a wizard with crêpes. Marley expects to spend a leisurely week or two in Wildwood Cove, the quaint, coastal community where she used to spend her summers, but then Cousin Jimmy is found murdered, sprawled on the rocks beneath a nearby cliff.
After she stumbles across evidence of stolen goods in Jimmy’s workshop, Marley is determined to find out what’s really going on in the not-so-quiet town of Wildwood Cove. With help from her childhood crush and her adopted cat, Flapjack, Marley sinks her teeth into the investigation. But if she’s not careful, she’s going to get burned by a killer who’s only interested in serving up trouble.
