Synopsis

Corinna Chapman was once a high profile accountant and banker. That is until she walked out on the money market and her dismissive and unpleasant husband James, threw aside her briefcase, and doffed her kitten heels forever. Now she is a baker working in her own business, Earthly Delights, in Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Australia. Corinna is living in an eccentric building on the Roman model called Insula, which has eight stories, sixteen apartments, and a lot of strange and interesting people. These include a retired professor of classics, Dionysius Monk; a Dutch gardener named Trudi; Mr. and Mrs. Pemberthy and their rotten little doggie, Traddles; a pair of disgustingly thin, would-be soapie stars Goss and Kylie; and a jobbing witch, Meroe of The Sibyls Cave. Corinna is quite content with her cat Horatio and her shop until a junkie falls half dead on her grate, a gorgeous sabra stalks along her alley and tells her that she is beautiful, and she starts receiving threatening letters accusing her of being a scarlet woman. Then it is Goths, lost girls, fraud, late nights, nerds, and beautiful slaves. Life for Corinna has suddenly become interesting. And she still needs to get her bread out in time for the morning rush…. Includes recipes. Earthly Delights is the first book in this delicious new series by the award-winning author who brought us the Phryne Fisher series.

    Big Disappointment

    Yuck! I started out loving the characters and quirky setting but then it all went downhill near the end. Over the top sex, didn't match up with the tone of the rest of the novel. And the hero is just a little too perfect for a heroine that certainly has her faults. Won't be trying another one!

    Both fun and informative

    What is more down to earth than baking. This is the flip side of Miss Fisher. Wonderful quirky characters, some trying on personalities and some very comfortable in their own skin. Several mysteries solved and lives redeemed, I hope to read about these characters.

    Yuck!

    What started out as a nice little cozy with great characters and quirky setting ended up as a sleazy sexually charged nightmare.

    Earthly Delights

    Definite keeper, great characters, humour and a plot to keep you guessing. Kerry Greenwood has created two completely different main characters in Corinna and Phryne and both equally fascinating.
