About the Author
Jessa Maxwell lives in Jamestown, Rhode Island, with her husband, two cats, and three-legged dog. The Golden Spoon is her first novel.
"A fantastically fun mystery with a perfect setting. It's Knives Out meets Agatha Christie. I was delightfully surprised throughout." --SARAH LANGAN, author of Good Neighbors
"The Golden Spoon is as addictive as bingeing your favorite culinary competition and as satisfying as a piece of your favorite cake. It's a complex, layered mystery featuring an unforgettable cast of characters who could be either America's next great baker or its next most famous cold-blooded killer. Jessa Maxwell has crafted a debut that's mouth wateringly good." --KELLYE GARRETT, Agatha, Anthony, and Lefty Award winning author of Like a Sister and Missing White Woman
"Who knew that the one thing to make me love the Great British Bake-Off even more was to add a (fictional) dead body? Take a cozy setting like Grafton, add in a diverse cast with their own hopes and dreams and hidden agendas, and toss in a couple of hosts who are not as perfect as they'd like you to think, and you've got a foolproof recipe for a great read. If you're a fan of character-driven mysteries and delicious bakes, you absolutely have to check out The Golden Spoon" --MIA P. MANANSALA, author of the Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award-winning Arsenic and Adobo
"Clever, atmospheric, and creepy, with a spooky mansion, the kind of quirky, reality-TV-ready ensemble you can't help but adore, and storylines as expertly interwoven as a blue-ribbon challah. I can't wait for whatever Maxwell bakes up next." --ANDREA BARTZ, New York Times bestselling author of We Were Never Here
"Two things I love are great food and a great mystery--and The Golden Spoon has both. This delicious combination of CLUE and The Great British Bakeoff kept me turning the pages all night!" --JANET EVANOVICH, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Recovery Agent
"Jessa Maxwell's debut is a deliciously entertaining whodunit--charming characters, baking mishaps, and a mouthwatering murder mystery. Readers and baking enthusiasts will savor every bite of The Golden Spoon." --SARAH PENNER, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Apothecary
"A delicious confection--in this multi-character CLUE meets the British Bake Off everyone is suspicious, and the solution will surprise you. I ate it up." --CATHERINE MCKENZIE, USA Today bestselling author of Have You Seen Her
"At last, a baking show with a murder; cleverly constructed so we not only wonder who is the murderer, but who will be the victim. A delightful bake." --CHRISTOPHER MOORE, New York Times bestselling author of Lamb, Noir, and A Dirty Job
"A delectable tour de force of baking and mayhem, Maxwell's debut mystery is one to savor." --Library Journal (starred review)
"A delicious concoction: two shakes Agatha Christie and a cup of Great British Bake Off." --Kirkus (starred review)
