Toni Holmes is the best gluten-free baker in Oiltop, Kansasokay, shes the only onebut when her grandmother becomes a murder suspect, shes more concerned with keeping Grandma free
When Tonis belovedand eccentricgrandma Ruth is arrested for the murder of her archenemy, Lois Striker, its time for a senior moment of truth. Telltale tracks from a scooter like the one Grandma Ruth rides lead the police to suspect the outspoken oldster, but Toni knows her grandmother wouldnt burn a cookie, let alone extinguish a life.
In fact, the case has Grandma more revved up than her infamous scooter. A former investigative journalist, she decides to solve the murder herselfwith help from Toniby digging up long-buried town secrets. But as Grandma scoots in where others fear to tread, Toni needs to make sure she not only stays out of jail but out of harms way

Murder Gone A-Rye, the second of A Bakers Treat Mystery is a quick, entertaining, interesting, fun read! It was well written, the plot moves along just fine ---- the Tonis family is truly made up of loud, boisterous, stubborn people who just make the novel more fun. Her grandmother being a 90 year old Mensa, along with her aunt really keep the story moving along. Grandma enjoying running her scooter everywhere, until the police confiscate it as they run her and her aunt in for murder! I enjoy how the author works really hard at explaining gluten-free recipes and the little boys sickness and how his finding of a puppy gets him in trouble but helps move the story along quite well. She also put in a lot of wonderful sounding recipes --- good cozy mystery. Book just made me happy and I was sorry to see this adventure end! I truly believe that anyone enjoying Cozy mysteries will enjoy this one!

This was a great follow up to a wonderful debut! I really enjoy Nancy Parra's writing style and the Baker's Treat series is pure fun! Toni is an enjoyable main character and her Grandma Ruth is a hoot!! We also meet Toni's Aunt Phyllis who is just as wild and reckless as Grandma and when the two decide to solve a murder mystery it takes everything Toni has to keep them out of trouble and out of jail!! On top of all of this, it's Thanksgiving and Toni is super busy whipping up tasty special orders for her gluten free customers to enjoy during the holidays. She's also working on a float for the Homer Everett Day parade... a local hero with family ties to some interesting secrets!! Add in a cute "little" pup named Aubrey, Toni's huge and eccentric family, and the makings of a quality love triangle and you've got a great story!! I can't wait to read the next in the series!!!
