A vicar with a taste for sweets. A nun with a knack for trouble. A deliciously diabolical crime…

Reverend Annabelle Dixon is not your typical vicar. Her passion and dedication to her calling are matched only by her weakness for cakes and sweets. Her unorthodox methods baffle her mentor, Father John. But even he can’t deny her popularity with the parishioners of St. Clement’s Church.

When Annabelle makes plans to sample some tasty treats with her old friend Sister Mary, a Catholic nun visiting from West Africa, she has no idea that she will soon find herself embroiled in a deadly mystery. She is shocked to find Sister Mary at a local café, surrounded by a panicked crowd, with a dead woman at her feet…

Armed only with a note, a disappearing dart, whispered rumors, and a love of cake, this quick-thinking, quick-footed holy woman must piece together the clues, pacify a dogged detective, and find the real perpetrator… before she and her friend both wind up in jail.

Part Sherlock Holmes, part Miss Marple, Annabelle is a new kind of detective, with an appetite for cakes and crime. If you love solving puzzles, then this suspense-filled, endearing, cozy mystery is just for you. This delightful jaunt around London will keep you guessing until the very end!

“Death At The Cafe had an unusual murder weapon and an unlikely villain. Combine that with uptight DI Cutcliffe who doesn't care very much for Annabelle's ‘help' in solving the case, add in some crazy antics by Annabelle and Mary, and you end up with a story that keeps you turning the pages to see what will happen next.”

“This is a highly enjoyable series debut. I look forward to reading further volumes.”

“Annabelle and Mary, a vicar and a nun, lifelong friends find themselves in the middle of two murders and missing jewels. And locked up as the criminals accused of committing these crimes. How do they redeem themselves? A great first book of a series, now on to the next book!”
