Arya Winters is your typical cozy heroine. She lives in a cottage in a small English village, and bakes for a living–well, she specializes in macabre desserts. She has the standard nosy neighbors, who she avoids ruthlessly due to her social anxiety. And, oh, she also has a mild case of Tourette’s.
When her neighbor Tobias Yards turns up dead, no one seems to connect it to Arya’s Auntie Meera’s recent death, so she takes matters into her own hands. All she has to do to uncover the truth is to get over her aversion to Other People. Besides that, it’s just a matter of getting beyond some yellow tape, dodging her former BFF Tallulah from secondary school, and getting into her new neighbor, writer Branwell Beam’s, pants–he seems strangely reluctant.
What Arya doesn’t realize is that the murderer is dangerous, preying on lonely people who’ve experienced trauma and that she might have to do all she can to not become the next victim.
Five Reasons to Read Arya Winters and the Tiramisu of Death
In honor of the layers(and cocoa dusting) in ‘Tiramisu’ which also happens to be one of my favorite desserts, I present to you a list of 5 reasons why you should read this book.
- if you like mysteries set in small villages
- main character is a baker who makes macabre cakes
- character focused stories
- great neurodiverse rep; the main character has Tourette’s and also a social anxiety disorder
- the side characters who are all such weirdos *i love them*
“Pop around if you want a cup of coffee. I make killer coffee,” I hear him say behind me.
I guess I could retort that I make a killer tiramisu, but it’s probably better that I don’t.
If Fleabag had a crossover with a cozy mystery set in an English village then it would be this book. I loved the setting, the plot, and Amita Murray’s writing. Although the identity of the murderer was quite evident from early on, it didn’t stop me from enjoying the story. There is a romance but it isn’t central to the story and it is not a happy ending for the couple. However, one can hope for a happy ending is in the cards for Arya Winters, mystery queen of the north and of macabre cakes, in the sequel which I hope will come out soon!
