My 56 for this week is from

Eclair And Present Danger

An Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery #1

by Laura Bradford


Genre: Cozy Mystery

My 56 from the paperback.

“Ahhh, I get it now,” Greg said. “You live on Serenity Lane.”


“What Renee said at the bakery yesterday morning makes sense now. You know, the part about the mutiny of old people. Serenity Lane is where the elderly in this town seem to live.”

“Which is why I chose to live on Serenity Lane in the first place. I’ve always been more comfortable with people in their seventies, eigthies, and nineties,”


Read on if you want to know more.


The first book in the delicious new Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery series from national bestselling author Laura Bradford.

With her rent rising faster than her pie crust, bakery owner Winnie Johnson had hoped to be rescued by an inheritance from her wealthy friend and neighbor Gertrude Redenbacher. Instead all she inherits is the widow’s hostile hissing tabby, Lovey, and a vintage ambulance, restored by Gertrude’s late husband. As her dream crumbles, Winnie makes her final delivery—a peach pie to an elderly widower. But she finds Bart Wagner lying on his kitchen floor, smothered by a pillow.

To comfort her frightened and grieving neighbors, Winnie comes to the rescue with her baked goods—and an idea is born: dessert delivery via her ambulance and a new business called the Emergency Dessert Squad. When she’s not speeding to the scenes of dessert emergencies, Winnie is also racing to track down Bart’s killer—before she needs to call a real ambulance for the next victim…



Yeah! A new cozy I’ll be reviewing next month. And this time it’s the first in the series. LOL

I’m sure many of you know I jump into a series anywhere. Kind of nice to start at the beginning for a change and not have to go backwards.

Catchy title and fun cover. To quote Tweety Bird, “I tawt I taw a putty tat!”


Leave your link and I’ll drop by your 56.
