Book Review: Hard Dough Homicide

Book: Hard Dough Homicide

Author: Olivia Matthews

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for an eARC in exchange for my honest review.

This is the second book in the spice isle bakery mystery series but this can be read as a standalone.

This is now the second murder connected to the spice isle bakery in Brooklyn. The first murder was not due to the bakery, and neither was this one. They both just happened to be in the bakery.

Lyndsay and family host a retirement party for a local high school principal on the day the bakery is usually closed making it a private event. During this party the principal is murdered.

I enjoyed the mystery of trying to find out the murder mystery. I loved how the family came together as one to support and try to figure out the murder. They were a great support system.

However, I cringed many when times when Lyndsay who owned the bakery would call her parents “mommy and daddy”. It was almost every sentence and I just found it to be way too much at times.

The overall mystery was good and kept me interested despite some of the character flaws that bothered me.

Final Score 3/5
