This is book 1 in the Auntie Clem's Bakery series. It's a wonderful start and the cast of characters bodes well for future books. Erin has moved to Eagle Falls to open a bakery in her Aunt's old shop. The first person she meets is the police detective who thinks she's breaking into the closed building. He is also the one to make her suspect # 1 in the murder of a neighbor. Enjoyed this one since it also taught me a lot about gluten free eating and cooking. I've never read P.D. Workman's books an ...more

What started out as a great novel about an outsider coming home to a small town, turned into a great little mystery! Written with a languidness that matches the small town setting, this is a lovely beginning to what promises to be a great series.

Great cozy myster and more. Wished I had read it sooner since I have had it for awhile now.

Does a really really wonderful job of explaining gluten free and allergy in a simple way that all can understand. Even explains the types of flours used. Tells how food is not cardboard or tasteless. May be in future could include tips and recipes? Nice job with the time to simplify and explain the issue to us ordinary people.

Now you probably could care less if gluten is not a problem for you and you want

I was very impressed with story because it showed the main character, Erin Price showing compassion for someone she didn't know, Vicky that needed help and in return they helped each other. Erin Price moves to Eagle Falls, a place where everyone knows everyone as well as everyone else's business, taking over the store left to her by her aunt to start up a gluten-free bakery. The grand opening is marred by just one thing, the death of her business rival, Angela Plaint who owns the other bakery in ...more

My first read from author P.D. Workman, although I own several of her books I’d never gotten around to reading one and after I’d acquired Auntie Clem’s Bakery #3 I wanted to read the first two books in the series before reading it, I really don’t like to read books out of sequence. Gluten Free Murder is extremely well written, the characters well developed. I’m a character reader, I get into the characters. Who and what they are. Why they do the things they do. The things that make a reader get ...more

I enjoyed this cozy mystery. Erin and Vic come from different backgrounds, but both have had problems in their lives. Erin wants to settle down and have a permanent place to live. The tea shop she was willed by Aunt Clem seems to be the perfect place to start a specialty bakery. Along the way, she picks up Vic who has secrets of her own and Orange Blossom the stray kitten. There are some very current social issues in this story which was interesting to run across. I am looking forward to reading ...more

This book, and series, is an unexpected gem! I have read many cozies and get bored easily with those which are obviously formulaic and stereotypical. This one has a baker, an attractive police officer, a cat, and a dog, so I was expecting it to be pretty uninspiring. I am so glad that I was wrong! The characters have depth & fascinating histories, the plot is intricate and interesting, and while the book has a clear resolution, it still left me wanting more! Definitely recommend it...it migh ...more

Gluten free murder

Erin was excited to be starting over and even happier to be out of the car. After checking out the store her aunt left her she found her aunts home and settled in. Starting over was not so easy there was a murder and she found a intruder in her bakery. Vic had been living there for a while. Erin felt like she was making friends but who could she trust a gluten free bakery is wonderful I was wishing I had her recipes as I eat gluten free because of Celiac can't wait to read the

This book is a lot of fun but so much more as well. It involves a lot of secrets being kept in this small town, one too many makes a murder and an attempted murder as well. Then there are more secrets from the past to go with more murders, or were they? A deliciously well written plot with wonderful characters to keep you engaged till the end and wanting more, that’s how this book made me feel. I loved the connections between the characters, especially between Erin, terry and William. Can’t wait ...more

Read 'Gluten Free Murder' by P.D. Workman to my daughter as we were driving. I enjoyed the story as it is the kind of story you can read and not get overly distracted. Kind of a cozy Mystery. The characters were great and it did have a few plot twists and had some amusing moments. We spent quite a bit fun trying to figure out who done it. Was a great read and I would recommend it to anyone who like a nice light read.
Cheers Lynn

New town, New cat, New houseguest.

This book was well written. The story flowed easily. The author included several twists and the ending was a bit of a surprise. Erin is an interesting character, as is Vic. I hope to learn more about their lives in later books. The town is a bit of a cliche, as southern Bible belt towns go, but is still pretty accurate. Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.

Didn't actually read the book myself but it was read to me as I drove on a road trip.

Was a fun, kinda cheesey story with an added bit of mystery and murder. I liked the characters and the development of the story but there was a couple times I couldn't help but think "of course now thatis going to happen". But near the end I did find myself anticipating who commited the murder, which shows a good story.

Would recommend as a quick, light and easy read.

This is the first in the series. The main character is Erin who moves into town when she inherits a bakery and house from her aunt. She isn't given the warmest of welcomes and when the owner of the only other bakery is found dead in her basement from her allergies and Erin claims to be making allergy free bakery. It is interest to see how this all plays out. I didn't see that ending coming.

I really enjoyed the story. Interesting plots and characters. I usually don't read cozy mysteries bug this was excellent. It would make a great Hallmark movie. Looking for to the next in the series. Recommended

Erins bakery

Very enjoyable. It is a new beginning when Erin's aunt leaves her a shop and a house. She opens a bakery, rescues a homeless teenager and a kitten and trys to solve a murder
all at the same time.

“Gluten-Free Murder” is a cleverly written whodunit with an even more ingenious solution.

Read full review in the 2018 May issue of InD'tale Magazine.

Good book and really liked the explanation of gluten allergy vs gluten intolerance. Liked the mystery part of the book too. Hated that it all of a sudden got very political and opinionated. Can’t we just escape all of that sometimes and just read a good mystery book?

Received a free copy for a review. I liked the story and the characters. A great introduction to a new series.

This was a good book and I enjoyed reading it. Looking forward to the next one. Only issue was the editing and how poor it was. I hope the next book is edited better.

A good solid mystery, likeable characters, a bit of sexual tension. What more could you ask for?

Award-winning novelist P.D. Workman writes riveting young adult/suspense fiction about mental illness, addiction, and abuse.

For as long as P.D. Workman can remember, the blank page has held an incredible allure. After a number of false starts, she finally wrote her first complete novel at the age of twelve. It was full of fantastic ideas. It was the spring board for many stories over the next few
