Vangie Vale and the Murdered Macaron
by R. L. Syme
A new to me author and a book that will keep you turning the pages as fast as you can to see what happens.

What I wouldn’t give to be in this story. It was fun, imaginative and full of yummy treats.
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!
It might have been the book cover that drew me in.
But it was the story and plot that kept me and lured me all the way to the end.
~My Reading Journeys
I liked Vangie’s character. She was definitely pretty unique from any other character that I have read in a book with her background as a part time pastor and then owner of her own bakery.
I greatly enjoyed this book. Ms. Syme is a writer after my own heart: an intricate web of lies and deceit, with so many twists and turns that she had me guessing until the very end.
~My Funny View of Life
…a refreshing book with wonderful characters that make the story so good.
This was a fun read and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good whodunit.
The author does a great job in leading us down various paths and hinting at suspects…I was very surprised when it was all revealed because it was not a character i was suspecting…I was close but no cigar.
It was simply a page turner that kept my attention from the beginning to the end.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
The author hooks you in right from the start. I couldn’t put it down until I knew who and what was behind the murder. Great start to a new series.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
A complicated story, VANGIE VALE AND THE MURDERED MACARON, introduces us to a unique protagonist with a hidden background.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
This is the first offering in a new series, and I found it fascinating.
Ms. Syme creates a refreshing, unique protagonist in Vangie Vale and sets up situations that allows both the character and the plot to shine.
~Cinnamon, Sugar, and a Little Bit of Murder
…this was well written and flowed well. It was a fast read that kept me guessing and turning the pages.
~Melina’s Book Blog
Vangie is a well-written, engaging, and complicated character, who captured my interest right away.
Vangie Vale quickly became one of my favorite cozy mystery heroines.

Small towns and gossip go together like flaky crust and sweet pastry cream. Between the police scanners, social media, and the senior center, it’s like a zombie apocalypse where the undead consume people’s secrets instead of living flesh.
But Vangie Vale wants nothing more than to stay under the radar…especially the police radar.
So when her new bakery becomes linked to a murder investigation, nothing will stop the gossip mill from connecting her to the dead body. Can’t have that.
Forced into the role of investigator, this new-in-town bakery owner has to become the very thing she hates–a nosy, small-town gossip–in order to clear her good name, and keep her face off the front page. But when a dating debacle brings her face-to-face with the Sheriff, Vangie can’t ignore the fact that one of her macarons was involved in a murder. She has to find the who-dun-it.
