Author Spotlight–Karoline Barrett


Today’s Author Spotlight is Karoline Barrett, author of the Bread and Butter Mystery Series.  I have read both books in the series and I have loved them both.  There are also two other books written by this author.  Learn a little bit about the author and her books and then enjoy reading them.


Karoline BarrettAbout The Author:

After having several short stories published, I decided to tackle novel writing a few years ago. My first book, The Art of Being Rebekkah is women’s fiction. Since the genre I love is mystery, my agent suggested I write one. I’m so glad she did! The first book in my Bread & Batter cozy mystery series, Bun For Your Life is coming November 2015, and the 2nd book, Raisin The Dead is coming April 2016. Both from Penguin/Intermix.

I’ve live in lots of different places during my life. At the moment, I’m in a small Connecticut town with my husband. When I’m not writing, I’m either reading, spending time by the water, traveling, indulging in social media, accompanying above-mentioned husband to New York Yankees games, or doing anything that does not involve math.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them!   (Goodreads)


Bread and Batter Mystery Series:


25381504Two bakery owners get mixed up with murder in the first adventure in the all-new Bread and Batter Mystery series…

As the co-owners of Bread and Batter Bakery in Destiny, New York, Molly Tyler and Olivia Williams have plenty on their plates. Molly is recently divorced and looking for a place to live, but they’re also both preparing for Destiny’s annual Apple Harvest Fair. The bakery has a booth where they’ll be selling not only delicious cupcakes and cider doughnuts, but also tote bags and t-shirts emblazoned with the bakery’s logo.

Tensions rise at the fair when local orchard owner Calista Danforth discovers organizers have assigned her usual booth to Bread and Batter. Although a heated argument ensues between her and Molly, the bakery manages to rake in lots of dough. But when Calista is found strangled to death with one of their t-shirts, Molly is named the prime suspect. Now these two friends must whip up some answers quickly before the future of their business crumbles… (Goodreads)



28384223The author of Bun for Your Life returns to Destiny, New York, where bakery owners and amateur sleuths Molly Tyler and Olivia Williams never crumble under pressure…
While the rest of Destiny is focused on the arrival of an upper crust perfume mogul, Molly is more concerned about what’s on the front page of the newspaper: her mother. Library director Anne Tyler was photographed at the most romantic restaurant in town having a cozy dinner with library advisory board member Philip Baldeli. But there’s more for Molly to worry about after Philip is found dead a few days later.

When Detective Sean Corsino zeroes in on Anne as a person of interest in the case, it turns down the heat on his budding romance with Molly. But after he’s injured during the course of his investigation, Molly and Olivia must step in to sift through the clues and clear Anne’s name.  (Goodreads)
