Look this is a light mystery romance set in gritty downtown Melbourne. The heroine is an overweight – some might prefer – curvy – baker, who is drawn into two mysteries… one within the apartment block in which she resides and another on the streets of Melbourne. The romance comes in with the tall, dark and handsome bouncer type who drives the soup van for the homeless.
It’s as I say, light, good fun, and a pleasant read. I’ve enjoyed her Phryne Fisher mysteries in the past which is set in the 1930s and I liked her more modern setting too. I even laughed out loud once or twice at her turn of phrase and I can’t say fairer than that.
