Devil's Food: A Corinna Chapman Mystery

Devil's Food - Kerry Greenwood I dislike Corinna. To use a metaphor that Corinna might use, it's like I'm having my fur stroked the wrong way; it makes me want to draw a blood-beaded line down the stroking hand with my kitty claws. I do like the other characters. I feel almost media fannish in my desire to rescue them. Kylie and Goss are more than cardboard cut-out aspiring actresses. Jon has a more mature and thorough understanding of aid and development than Corinna. He doesn't, for example, think of program partners as the poor and wretched. Kepler is not gay Lin Chung, beautiful and characterless. Etc. Also, I like books set in my town.
