Anna just wants to earn enough money on the side to buy into the bakery, Callie’s Cakes, where she works together with her best nerd pal, Callie. The last thing she expects to see when she walks into Arthur’s apartment to do some moonlighting is a blood bath. Callie’s ready to jump into the investigation of Arthur’s murder, and she’s bringing another bakery worker, Kristie, into their hijinks whether Kristie wants to or not. But things aren’t as they seem. There are gang affiliations, illegal gambling dens, and ladies of the night to wade through. Will Anna and Callie discover who murdered Arthur, or will Callie’s detective boyfriend and Anna’s self-appointed protector put a stop to such aspirations?

Come join us at Callie’s Cakes, where murder investigations are on the menu, but make sure to bring your own baker, because Anna’s a bit preoccupied at the moment.

Warning: This is NOT your mom’s cozy mystery. Bring Your Own Baker may be a ‘clean’ read, but if gangs, illegal gambling, and pimps make you turn your nose up at your e-reader, you might want to skip this one. Although you’ll be missing some sizzling chemistry between Anna and her protector. Not to mention a whole bunch of witty dialogue.

Ben obviously doesn’t need any further explanation. “Yeah,” he nods. “I can pick her up. Meet you at a neutral location.”

“I hope you don’t think you’re going to meet with her without me.” I point to myself. “Because that ain’t happening.”

“Pixie girl,” Logan starts, but I cut him off.

“Don’t you dare ‘pixie girl’ me! I’m…” Callie clears her throat – loudly. I roll my eyes. “We’re the ones that found this clue. You can’t shut us out.” My grin turns evil. “Besides, she’s obviously scared of her own shadow. She’s going to be terrified by Giant Bear Detective and Gang Banger Hipster.”

Logan’s mouth twitches. “Did you just call me a hipster?”

I roll my eyes. “I was just trying to soften the whole gang banger thing.”

Ben chuckles. “Well, at least you’re not a Giant Bear.”

Logan shakes his head at Ben. “Dude, a hipster?”

About the Author

de haggertyI grew up reading everything I could get my hands on from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew to Little Women. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although I did manage every once in a while to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic after returning to the law. Another job change, this time from lawyer to B&B owner and I was again fed up and ready to scream I quit, which is incredibly difficult when you own the business. Thus, I shut the B&B during the week and in the off-season and started writing. Several books later I find myself in Istanbul writing full-time.
