Flour in the Attic: 06/17/20
Flour in the Attic by Winnie Archer is the fourth of the Bread Shop mysteries. Ivy's brother Billy is about to be engaged to his girlfriend (the deputy sheriff) when a long time resident is found dead, presumably drowned in the ocean while on a training run.
Marisol's family, though, swears up and down that she wasn't suicidal. Furthermore, she was too strong a swimmer to drown. A key clue reveals that she probably wasn't swimming when she died — one that anyone close to her would easily pick up.
The planning of Marisol's funeral leads to other unsettling discoveries. If you've read enough mysteries or watched enough police procedurals on TV, Flour in the Attic is easy to solve before Ivy and the others. What makes this book a page turner, though, is the family drama.
The fifth book in the series is Dough or Die and it releases August 25, 2020.
