Vangie Vale And The Murdered Macarons by R.L. Syne
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Source: Great Escapes
Rating: 4/5

Vangie Vale divides her time between her bakery (and delicious desserts) and being a vicar, seems weird but her second job will allow her to talk to people more easily and let her be a quite good sleuth if she is searching for a third job! So when she discovers that there was a victim with her macaron in her hands and a very handsome actor is the main suspect for the murder, she decides to start talking...!

"I'd bring a few cookies inside to ensure their stomachs were happy. Something about the way Henry's demeanor had change had me on the edge, and I wanted to make sure he didn't do anything to incriminate himself, especially since I was so certain he was innocent of the murder. Whatever he was hiding, it wasn't that."

This is a funny and interesting book, there are a lot of possible murderers and in every page, instead of begin to see the ending, the killer seems more far away than ever! I liked the neighbourhood friendship all the characters have, they agree and of course disagree, and let me say I can't wait to discover more characters and more delicacies from Vangie!
I am not a religious person, so I was a little scared when the book talked about her job, but I have to admit, it was light talk, not trying to convert you and it was quite interesting! I think Vangie being a vicar makes her more comfortable to understand the human actions and not being scared of the horrible things some people had done, just try to give a second opportunity to everyone, of course if you regret your actions!
This is the first book of The Matchbaker Mysteries series, but I really can't wait to read a new Vangie Vale adventure!
Do you like macarons?

Interested? Good luck in the Giveaway!


  1. Thank you for hosting R.L. Syne and Vangie Vale and the Murdered Macarons. This book sounds like it is right up my alley.

  2. Thank you so much for this review. And I'm so glad you enjoyed Vangie, as someone who isn't religious. That was super important to me--to make her real, but not inaccessible to anyone. Your review was so appreciated!

  3. A Cozy mystery with my favorite dessert macarons, what is better than that? Chic lit and cozy mysteries are my favorite genres to read.
