The Golden Spoon
“Imagine The Great British Baking Show with a splash of Agatha Christie murder mystique. Interesting characters, intriguing subplots, and a fun setting kept me turning the pages. This is a book I can put into the hands of any reader.”Gail Dickson,

“A surprising and delightful combination of Agatha Christie and The Great British Baking Show, The Golden Spoon will sweep you off your feet and into a world of cakes, pies and gruesome murders! When six amateur bakers show up at Grafton Manor to compete on Bake Week, the long running television baking show, the well planned competition quickly falls apart, with sabotage and eventually murder making their way onto the menu. The Martha Stewart-esque judge and the handsome but calculating cohost make for a fake baking show you wish you could actually watch. I did not expect it to be such a page turner, but both the pacing and the twisting plot kept me riveted from beginning to end. A great book for mystery lovers and people who spend too much time watching Paul Hollywood crush dreams.”Alex,

“This delicious combination of Clue and The Great British Bake Off kept me turning the pages all night!” —Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times bestselling author
Only Murders in the Building meets The Maid in this darkly beguiling locked-room mystery where someone turns up dead on the set of TV’s hottest baking competition—perfect for fans of Nita Prose, Richard Osman, and Anthony Horowitz.
Every summer for the past ten years, six awe-struck bakers have descended on the grounds of Grafton, the leafy and imposing Vermont estate that is not only the filming site for “Bake Week” but also the childhood home of the show’s famous host, celebrated baker Betsy Martin.
The author of numerous bestselling cookbooks and hailed as “America’s Grandmother,” Betsy Martin isn’t as warm off-screen as on, though no one needs to know that but her. She has always demanded perfection, and gotten it with a smile, but this year something is off. As the baking competition commences, things begin to go awry. At first, it’s merely sabotage—sugar replaced with salt, a burner turned to high—but when a body is discovered, everyone is a suspect.
A sharp and suspenseful thriller for mystery buffs and avid bakers alike, The Golden Spoon is a brilliant puzzle filled with shocking twists and turns that will keep you reading late into the night until you turn the very last page of this incredible debut.
