Lauren wrote: "Clue #2: Food as feature"

Lauren, I've include the whole series of the Wedding Cake Mystery as the baker seems to be MC for it all...

Could you tell me about these ones (whether the whole series feature same MC who cooks / bakes)?

Wild Man - heroine own a bakery
How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf - heroine is a cook in a dinner
Savor the Moment - heroine bakes wedding cakes

Nope, its only these books that have the MC who bakes or cooks. The other books in the series focus on different heroines with other skills.

Karin | 795 comments Clue # 2 Baker's Fatal Dozen (A Cozy Crumb Mystery, #2) by Lisa Harris Baker's Fatal Dozen

While this isn't what I thought it would be (I was hoping for a mystery/thriller, since I read a mystery/thriller series by this author last year), but since it's a "Cozy Crumb Mystery" that centres around a bakery that makes pastries it's safe to say it centers around food.
