Release Date / First Review

A Fresh Baked Mystery
ISBN 0-451-21974-0
October 2006

Today is the release date for A Peach of a Murder, and I received my first review for it. The review is by Melissa Fowler at The Romance Reader's Connection at this link: http://theromancereadersconnection.com/reviews2/washburnliviaj11006.html

She had this to say about the book:

A PEACH OF A MURDER is the delightful first installment of author Livia Washburn's Fresh Baked Mystery series. A realistic small town vibe is created by the collection of characters and the author's vibrant narrative. Phyllis as a heroine is quite accessible, so too is her son Mike. The plot twists and turns smoothly, sure to keep readers eagerly turning pages until the very end. A PEACH OF A MURDER runs the full range of emotions, so be prepared to laugh and cry with this one!

Thank you, Melissa, for such a nice review.


  1. I didn't know you had a blog, Livia, or I would have tuned in sooner. Anyway, I bought and read your book and concur with the review. I'm notorious for not liking cozies, but I liked yours. It didn't have the cutesy, cloying atmosphere that makes most cozies anathema to me. Congrats, and I hope this is the start of a long and lucrative series.

  2. Well, I really haven't been here long. I'm glad you like A Peach Of A Murder. I had hoped the book would appeal to all mystery readers. Thank you for all your good wishes.
