About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns comes a hilariously homicidal Cookies & Chance mystery!

For once, baker Sally Muccio’s life isn’t a recipe for disaster. She’s happy to be out celebrating her wedding anniversary... that is until she spies her friend Officer Brian Jenkins with a gorgeous blonde who is not his newlywed wife. The woman's name is Kelsey Sherman, and it turns out she once dated Brian. Which doesn't make Sal feel any better about the situation, but she decides to mind her own business and enjoy her evening. 

Only before the night is over Kelsey is dead from a gunshot wound, and Brian is found standing over her body. To make matters worse, the bullet is confirmed to have come from his own gun. Brian swears he had nothing to do with the murder, and Sal believes him, even if the rest of the town’s convinced that he’s a total crumb. With nowhere else to turn, Brian asks for help to prove his innocence. But when the tables turn and someone tries to kill Sal as well, she might come out of this mess battered for life.

Sally ends up involved in another murder case, when Brian is considered the main suspect. He was found standing over the body a dead woman, an old friend of both Sally and Brian's, and the murder weapon was Brian's own gun. With no one else he can trust, Sally is asked to help. And as much as Mike gets frustrated with Sally's amateurish detective work, he also knows she can't say no to a friend. I really like this series and the characters in it - from Sally and her quirky family members, to Josie, and even Brian. The stories always have a mystery to solve, but are also focused on family and relationships. I liked this addition to the series.

Knee Deep in Dough is another wonderful book in this marvelous, laugh out loud series. Sally and all the marvelous characters return for the latest adventure. There is family drama, murder, twists, turns, and a wrongly suspected lawman. Will Sally be able to clear Brian's name? You will not want to miss the action in this well written, fast paced drama! I could not put it down!
