Dying To Bake, by Helen Golden

Dying To Bake book cover
A TV baking show leads to frayed nerves and murder. The Countess of Rossex and her business partner are thrown into an investigation to prove her brother’s girlfriend is innocent…
Dying To Bake is part of the Right Royal Investigations series of cosy murder mysteries.
When a TV cook/personality is murdered on set at a royal residence, Bea’s brother Fred calls upon her, Perry and Rich to prove his girlfriend’s innocence. Vera seems to have made plenty of enemies so there is a wide range of suspects and motives for the sleuths to unpick. However, it is Summer that the police are focussed upon. Bea and Rich’s efforts are not welcomed by the police officer in charge so they have to use their contacts to help find crucial information to unravel the case.
I’ll be honest and say that I was a little disappointed by the last book but this one is back up to the usual high standard! I loved being immersed in the fictional royal family again and this had the added enjoyment of a popular baking show as the backdrop to the plot. There is a subplot about a mysterious young woman: I figured out her identity immediately but this didn’t spoil my enjoyment as I waited for the characters to work it out.
Rich is recovering from being shot and is recuperating on the royal estate so is frustrated that he cannot play an official role in the investigation. Bea and Perry are finishing off the refurbishments so that she can move back in to the Dower House and I felt happy that she is finally ready to move on with her life after the death of her husband many years previously. Daisy the dog features prominently throughout the book, hurrah! The romantic tension between Rich and Bea is almost unbearable as they both want to give in to their attraction (no spoilers about whether they do!)
Dying To Bake is a hugely enjoyable cosy murder mystery.

Bake Off Wars is back! Get your aprons on and let the sleuthing begin!
Vera Bolt, Queen of Bakes, dies unexpectedly aged 66  
In a shocking announcement this afternoon, Vera Bolt’s agent confirmed that the Bake Off Wars judge and national treasure died yesterday. Ms Bolt was in the process of filming the next series of the hugely popular television show at Francis Court, the home of the King’s sister and her family. It’s believed that the renowned pastry chef was stabbed in the heart, and the main suspect is rumoured new royal girlfriend, Summer York.
What am I supposed to do? Lady Beatrice has promised DCI Richard Fitzwilliam that she won’t get involved in the investigation into Vera Bolt’s death. But when her brother’s new love interest, Summer York, becomes the top suspect for Vera’s murder, Fred begs Bea to find out who the real killer is. In a race against time, can Bea navigate a labyrinth of secrets and lies, evade danger, and safeguard her friendship with Fitzwilliam? The answer may determine not only Summer’s innocence but also the fate of Bea’s and Fitzwilliam’s burgeoning feelings for each other.

Author Bio –
Hello. I’m Helen Golden. I write British contemporary cozy whodunnits with a hint of humour. I live in small village in Lincolnshire in the UK with my husband, my step-daughter, her two cats, our two dogs, sometimes my step-son, and our tortoise.
Previously, I used to work in senior management, but after my recent job came to a natural end I had the opportunity to follow my dreams and start writing. It’s very early in my life as an author, but so far I’m loving it.
It’s crazy busy at our house, so when I’m writing I retreat to our caravan (an impulsive lockdown purchase) which is mostly parked on our drive. When I really need total peace and quiet, I take it to a lovely site about 15 minutes away and hide there until my family runs out of food or clean clothes
