Here is Oliva Matthews’s Against the Currant, a Spice Island Bakery Mystery. It’s got a West Indian bakery, an earnest baker who has everything she’s ever wanted, and a disgruntled rival who seems likely end up in some sort of romantic entanglement—except he turns up dead before any smooching can happen. Well, that’s awkward. We guess our intrepid protagonist had better solve this mystery before it gets pinned on her. That kitchen timer is ticking!

A Good Book General Bookstore could probably use a little extra love, based on this post from their Facebook page:
Beginning this week, Main Street will be closed here to east bound Main Street traffic for the next several weeks. Then they will close Main Street to the west bound traffic. Please come downtown and support all of the businesses, but come into the area from the east side (on the Bonney Lake side of Sumner) from now until early Summer. Thank you for being so supportive of our lovely downtown!
