Dough or Die: 10/28/20
Dough or Die by Winnie Archer is the fifth in the Bread Shop mystery series. Ivy Culpepper convinces her boss and mentor, Olaya, to participate in the pilot series of a new baking reality show. Her Bread for Life class will be featured but things are contentious from the first day. Before shooting ends, the camera man is in the hospital and the local co-host is dead.
Thematically this volume shares a lot with volume two, Crust No One (2017). This time, though, the home she visits is a women's center. She learns of it through connections to the Bread for Life classes.
While there are structural similarities to book two, I didn't figure out the solution this time. I got close but maybe with listening to the audio and multitasking, I missed some key clues. Half of the ending came out of the blue for me.
The next book, Dead Gone A-Rye, comes out in April 2021.
