Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts

Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts is a cozy mystery short story that comes in electronic format and is approximately 53 pages in length.

I was able to download Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts to my Kindle for FREE from Amazon.

Below is my honest and unbiased review of Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts.

I enjoy reading cozy mysteries, so was excited to read Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts, especially since it had such high reviews by readers on Amazon. But alas, I wasn't in love with this short at all!!

There's too much going on in this short story to make it a good read. There's definitely a dead body that the main character (a female amateur sleuth) ends up solving the murder is even though she's never solved a murder before in her life... The leading character also has a creep of a fiance that treats her with disrespect and she can't figure that out in enough time to dump his sorry a** to the curb before he dumps her... Additionally, the leading character's grandfather dies at the start of the short story and leaves her his bed and breakfast to run, but this bit of news isn't given the attention it properly deserves in Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts.

The writing for Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts wasn't that engaging. The characters were okay and the short story left something to be desired.

The following is a plot summary for Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts from Amazon:
Sticks and Bones and…Baker's Stones? 
To most people, Ally Wescott has an idyllic life. Engaged to a French banker, a quaint apartment in Greater London, an array of amazing friends and a family friend whose bakery she gets to spend her free time in, polishing her passion for making sweet treats. What could possibly go wrong? 
She’s about to find out. 
A surprise letter, a wavering fiancĂ© and the discovery of bones are about to shake her peaceful world to the core, and this time, a cup of tea and a slice of apple pie won’t fix the major upheaval in her life… or will it?
I am giving Bakeries & Bones by Nic Roberts a rating of 1 star out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
