Devil’s Food is the third book in the Corinna Chapman series by award-winning Australian author, Kerry Greenwood. The audio version is read by Louise Siversen. I read the print version well before I was writing reviews, so I can only say what a pleasure it is to return to these charming characters.

In this instalment:
As always, Jason creates wonderful muffins but, when baking famine bread for a new contract, Corinna is told by the head monk of the Discarnate Brotherhood order to make her product worse (is that even possible?). She notes the monks collecting the bread are alarmingly thin.
Goss and Kylie succumb to an uncharacteristic hysteria: Corinna and Meroe discover the cause, and Meroe threatens violence to the purveyor of this dangerous weight-loss tea should she find them.

Corinna’s unbeloved mother, Starshine arrives: Corinna’s father, Sunlight has departed from the collective with a younger woman, and is now missing. Corinna overcomes her reluctance to track him down, with the help of the very capable Daniel
An evening in an exquisite silk dominance dress and corset provided by Mistress Dread is enjoyed at a new vampire club, Café Vlad Tepes , where Corinna and Daniel find The Apothecary and The Witch dispensing the dreaded herbal concoction.

John and Kepler learn they have been unwittingly importing what might be prohibited substances secreted inside legal goods.
Meanwhile, close neighbours express concern when the doors of The Lone Gunmen aka Nerds Inc remain inexplicably closed.

As usual, once the mysteries are solved, a wonderful party ensues, this time in Insula’s basement. It may be wise to eat before reading as the regular mention of delicious breads, muffins and other mouth-watering food may stimulate the appetite.... This is just as enjoyable a read second time around.
