Corinna Chapman, talented baker and reluctant investigator, is trying very hard to do nothing at all on her holidays. Her gorgeous Daniel is only intermittently at her side (he’s roaming the streets tracking down a multi-thousand dollar corporate theft). Jason, her baking offsider, has gone off to learn how to surf. And Kylie and Goss are fulfilling their lives’ ambition auditioning for a soapie. It should be a time of quiet reflection for Corinna but quiet reflection doesn’t seem to suit her – she’s bored. Scenting a whiff of danger, Corinna accepts an offer from a caterer friend to do the baking for the film set of a new soap called ‘Kiss the Bride’. The soapie in which Kylie and Goss have parts. Twists and turns and complications that could only happen to Corinna ensue involving, bizarrely, nursery rhymes and a tiger called Tabitha. While on the other side of town, a young woman is being unmercifully bullied by her corporate employers – employers who spend a lot of time cooking the books.The 6th in the Corinna Chapman series.


"To the usual delightfully quirky characters, lovingly detailed descriptions of food and surprising mystery, Greenwood adds several appended medieval recipes." --Kirkus Reviews

  1. Corrina is fun, but I really appreciate the Phryne Fisher books. The plots are great fun, even if some of Phryne’s actions are unwise – in aid of advancing the plot, I suppose. It is the characters and the period, however, that give me so much pleasure. The TV series is just as enjoyable with its wonderful eye candy and great cast, even though it is more superficial and deviates noticeably from the books. I just treat the book series and the TV series as two separate entities.

  2. Thank you Kerry Greenwood for Phryne Fisher and Corinna Chapman. I, too, am awaiting the
    next Corinna Chapman book. I miss her and all the other characters associated with her.
    I must also add that I am enjoying the TV series starring Phryne. The actress playing her
    really leaps from the pages of your books.
    Please give me more Corinna!

  3. I am in great good luck today! I found my first Kerry Greenwood book and I love it. This means I have many many books to look forward to enjoying. Thank you, Kerry Greenwood, for taking time from your other endeavors to write! I love the insula, I love Corinna and her full-figure approach to life, I love the rooftop garden and I love good food…so this is a perfect match for me!

    Many thanks!

  4. I am very upset.
    According to Kerry’s Australian publisher’s website, she plans to alternate Phryne books and Corinna books every other year. Well, it’s been over three years since there was a Corinna book (2011) and there are two Phryne books since then!
    While I do enjoy the Phryne books, I LOVE the Corinna ones and have to resort to re-reading them all in one fell swoop to get my fix. (Currently am mid-way through #4 — started #1 two days ago.)
    PLEASE tell me that there is a new Corinna coming?
