Review; Dough or Die (A Bread Shop Mystery #5) by Winnie Archer

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cosy mystery Dough or Die (A Bread Shop Mystery #5) by Winnie Archer through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Known for its mouthwatering traditional breads, the Yeast of Eden bakery has gained fame across Northern California's coast. Now the shop is bound for Reality TV--but a murder may kill its reputation . . .

People come to the beach town of Santa Sofia as much for the healing properties of Yeast of Eden's breads as for a vacation getaway. And now a cable food channel has selected the bakery as a featured culinary delight for a new show. Baking apprentice Ivy Culpepper is excited as the crew arrives, ready to capture all the ins and outs of the renowned bread shop. But instead they capture something much harder to stomach: the attempted murdered of the show's cameraman just outside Yeast of Eden . . .

With no motive and no clues, and the town craving answers, it will be up to Ivy to sift through the evidence to find the truth. But she'll have to move quickly before someone else is targeted or the wrong person gets the heat--and the business collapses like a deflated soufflé, right before her eyes.

My Thoughts on the Book
Dough or Die was such a fun and engaging read. The plot had a few twist and turns and red herrings that made you guess a bit more. I also really liked several of the characters, especially Olaya and the "bread crew". A few other things I really liked was Olaya's philosophy when it comes to her bakery and baked goods, in addition to the fact that the book touches upon domestic violence and women's shelters.
