Kerry Greenwood is best known for her first series of books, The Phryne Fisher mysteries. Earthly delights is the first book in her second series, introducing us to Corinna Chapman, a divorced ex accountant turned baker and reluctant investigator.
Greenwood manages to combine mystery, food, humour, witchcraft, Goths, vampires, drugs, death and love. Her descriptive writing that I love so much in her Phyrne Fisher mysteries, transporting me to another time and place, isn’t lost in modern day Melbourne, exploring the quirky, weird and delicious.
Corinna Chapman is an extremely likeable character; overweight, loves her trackies, independent, strong, intelligent, kind, sympathetic and funny. Throw in a gorgeous love interest and a mystery and I can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series, Heavenly pleasures.
