In Olivia Matthews's Against the Currant, the first Spice Isle Bakery Mystery, investigating a murder was never supposed to be on the menu…
Little Caribbean, Brooklyn, New York: Lyndsay Murray is opening Spice Isle Bakery with her family, and it’s everything she’s ever wanted. The West Indian bakery is her way to give back to the community she loves, stay connected to her Grenadian roots, and work side-by-side with her family. The only thing getting a rise out of Lyndsay is Claudio Fabrizi, a disgruntled fellow bakery owner who does not want any competition.
On opening day, he comes into the bakery threatening to shut them down. Fed up, Lyndsay takes him to task in front of what seems to be the whole neighborhood. So when Claudio turns up dead a day laterâ€”murderedâ€”Lyndsay is unfortunately the prime suspect. To get the scent of suspicion off her and her bakery, Lyndsay has to prove she’s innocentâ€”under the watchful eyes of her overprotective brother, anxious parents, and meddlesome extended familyâ€”what could go wrong?

I wanted this book to be as spicy as the name of Lyndâ€™s
bakery and it just wasnâ€™t. While the colorful descriptions
of the background and the tempting aromas were there they
just didnâ€™t evoke much of a response from me unfortunately.
The whodunit portion of the cozy didnâ€™t provide a satisfying
reveal for me as well.
