Corinna Chapman was once a high profile accountant and banker. Then 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, located in Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Australia. Corinna is living in an eccentric building on the Roman model called Insula, made up of 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 exciting. 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.

This book was a lot of fun. I've read 4 or 5 of Greenwood's Phryne Fisher series, and enjoyed them as well - Corinna Chapman was a very different sort of main character. Fisher is pretty much perfect - drop dead gorgeous, rich, can do anything, almost like a cartoon heroine - not a problem, fun rea...

Well, "I love yous" were exchanged.I think there was a mystery, people died and people almost died and ...
