A Friend In Knead

Harriet Pickles is living her dream, one mishap at a time.

It is springtime in Vermont, and Harriet’s life is finally on a roll. The Bluebell Café, her pride and joy, is a success, and someday soon it may even be solvent. In her scant free time she ghost writes her gran’s wildly popular advice column and tends to her beloved one-eyed, cross dressing, English Bulldog.

But then Sevenoaks experiences its first murder in as long as anyone can remember, and the police investigation hits way too close to home. In order to save her café, Harriet and her best friend, Claire, are forced to conduct their own search for the killer.

To further complicate matters, Harriet’s long-ago boyfriend – the love of her life – has moved back to town, and if her legs would just stop wobbling every time the two of them are together it would be easier to pretend she’s completely over him.

A Friend in Knead is a cozy mystery full of tasty food, lots of laughs and a hit of romance.

Includes some of The Bluebell Café’s most-loved recipes.


Fantastic writing, relatable characters, and a surprise ending!

I never saw that ending coming! This book was funny from start to finish, and it was a great mystery to keep you guessing until the end. The characters are colorful and relatable, and the writing is on point.

Just ok

The book dragged so it took a long time to read i will not be following this author Tho i loved the recipes

Needs an editor!!

The book is ok. Every once in awhile they throw in some big word out of the blue. The writing has a lot of spelling errors- DON'T PEOPLE EDIT ANYTHING ANYMORE?? They repeat parts of a sentence . It's very poorly written! I quit halfway through.

The restaurant business can be murder!

I really liked the characters, their history with friends & exes! Harriet & her Gran’s advice were priceless. On to book two!
Can’t wait to try the recipes included!

Fun, engaging cozy

Quirky, believable characters, good wit, some snarky humor, and a little over-the-top reality make this a “good read.”
And the second book in the series was even better!

Good cozy mystery

Well written clean mystery that keeps you guessing to the end. Includes murder, food, animals and as usual the police that can’t quite figure it out and the nosy heroine that solves the mystery.
