Gluten-free baker Toni Holmes may not cook with wheat, but when there's a criminal on the loose, she'll do what it takes to figure out who has their finger in the pie...

Even though Toni is used to going against the grain by preparing allergy-safe, gluten-free products for her online bakery, Baker's Treat, opening a storefront in the middle of wheat country Kansas might be biting off more than she can chew. The town is already skeptical of her flour-free ways, but when a local wheat farmer is murdered outside her patisserie, skepticism turns into outright suspicion.

With the help of her eccentric grandmother, her handsome lawyer, and the sexy new widower in town, Toni is determined to find the real criminal before bad publicity and increasingly personal acts of vandalism shut her down. But when another suspect winds up dead, Toni realizes that this half-baked killer isn't just trying to get her to close shop--he's trying to make sure that she's made her last gluten-free cookie... forever .

Being a celiac I just had to pick this one out of the stacks. About a woman, Toni, whom moves back to her hometown after her mother’s death. A local wheat farmer is murdered and the number one suspect is Toni. My favorite character has to be Toni’s eccentric grandmother whom added a touch of levity when needed in this novel. I recommend this one to all the celiac, gluten intolerant and wheat eaters alike!
