A Corinna Chapman Mystery

Kerry Greenwood. Poisoned Pen, $24.95 (280p) ISBN 978-1-59058-984-7
At the start of Australian author Greenwood’s light, entertaining sixth Corinna Chapman mystery (after 2010’s Forbidden Fruit), an old schoolmate recruits Corinna, Melbourne’s best bread baker and sometime sleuth, to help with a daunting catering job—to supply food for a soap opera TV pilot, which, by chance, is the very show in which Corinna’s two assistants have landed roles. The tension level on the set is elevated by the presence of the prima donna leading lady, Molly Atkins, who’s been the victim of a series of malicious pranks. In between preparing food and trysts with her hunky Israeli boyfriend, PI Daniel Cohen, Corinna does a bit of detecting, but no one will keep turning pages just to ascertain who’s been harassing Molly. Corinna, who’s a bit too good to be true, lacks the charisma of Greenwood’s other series sleuth, Phryne Fisher. (Mar.)
