Baking and Entering by Janet Butler Male
A sassy-mouthed cat. A vengeful ghost. Can a recent divorcee solve a magical mystery before she joins the deceased?
It's 1987, and forty-year-old Milly Miller's life is dull. Her marriage is passion-free, and her shoeshop job is 'sole' destroying. When she and her husband separate, Milly longs for excitement and glamour. But on her paltry wages, her life is more orthopaedic sandals than designer heels.
On divorce day, she inherits a fortune and a posh London pad. Her luck has changed, and Milly hotfoots it to the capital.
She couldn't be happier in her new home with its fun and zany neighbours. Until she discovers a resident ghost, who claims someone murdered her. And that she's a witch. Suspected weapon? Baked goods laced with magical vanilla essence.
She asks Milly to investigate with the help of a 200-year-old Siamese cat with a sassy tongue.
A prime suspect is the ghost's hunky son, whom Milly falls for. But in a twist of fate, if the son is innocent, Milly must return her fortune. And if he's guilty, she'll lose out on love.
