Discover | The Bakers Wife by Erin Healy


I love a good mystery and regularly visit my Sherlock Holmes novels to get my fix along with any British murder/mystery TV show. Which is why, I was very interested in The Bakers Wife after reading the blurb. It was the cover that attracted my attention, I love the it. Even though I'm more at home in the tropics, I could feel the snow squeaking under my feet and the bracing chill of the mist on my face.

Erin Healy's bio says that she writes supernatural suspense novels from a Christian worldview. Her books explore what it means to be a spiritual being in a physical world, and a physical creature in a spiritual world. She is an award-winning fiction editor who worked with Ted Dekker on more than a dozen of his stories before their collaboration on KISS and BURN.

If you're a fan of Ted Dekker then you should like this book. Good luck to you if you can find a copy of the book in Australian though, I've only been able to find a limited number of the audio book, which should be OK too.

Let me know if you're in Australian and have been able to get yourself a copy. Also what you thought of the book if you've read it.




The Baker's Wife

by Erin Healy
Before Audrey was the baker's wife, she was the pastor's wife.

Then a scandalous lie cost her husband a pastoral career. Now the two work side-by-side running a bakery, serving coffee, and baking fresh bread. But the hurt still pulls at Audrey.

Driving early one morning to the bakery, Audrey's car strikes something—or someone—at a fog-shrouded intersection. She finds a motor scooter belonging to a local teacher. Blood is everywhere, but there's no trace of a body.

Both the scooter and the blood belong to detective Jack Mansfield's wife, and he's certain that Audrey is behind Julie's disappearance.

But the case dead-ends and the detective spirals into madness. When he takes her family and some patrons hostage at the bakery, Audrey is left with a soul-damaged ex-con and a cynical teen to solve the mystery. And she'll never manage that unless she taps into something she would rather leave behind—her excruciating ability to feel other's pain.
