Baking Bad - a cozy mystery with dragons (A Beaufort Scales Mystery Book 1)

Genre: Fantasy, Humour, Mystery

Book Summary

A tranquil village.

A poisoned cupcake.

A murdered vicar.

A simple case – or it should be. But all clues point to the Toot Hansell Women’s Institute, and Detective Inspector Adams is about to discover there’s much more to the W.I. than bake sales and jam making.

Alice Martin, RAF Wing Commander (Ret.), and current chair of the W.I., knows the ladies of the Women’s Institute are not guilty. But she has a bigger problem. Toot Hansell has a dragonish secret, and she needs to keep the police well away from it. And she’d really rather not be arrested for murder. Again.

Meanwhile, Beaufort Scales, High Lord of the Cloverly dragons, survivor of the days of knights and dragon hunts, knows even better than Alice that the modern dragon only survives as long as no one knows they exist. But he also knows friends don’t let friends face murder inquiries alone. Beaufort intends to Get Involved.

This investigation is about to take on dragonish proportions.

Best put the kettle on.

About the Author

Hello lovely people!

I’m Kim, and I write funny, magical books that offer an escape hatch from the serious stuff in the world and leave you smiling. They’re about tea-drinking dragons solving mysteries in sleepy Yorkshire villages, and baking-obsessed reapers setting up baby ghoul petting cafes, and ladies of a certain age joining the Apocalypse on their Vespas. They’re about friendship, and loyalty, and lifting each other up, and will let you step outside of life as we know it for a little. Most of all, they’ll remind you that life, and people (of all sorts of descriptions) can be very wonderful indeed.

There are also snarky cats, because that’s how cats are, and not even magical books can change that. But we love them anyway, right? Right. *Eyes the Little Furry Muse apprehensively.*
