Dive into the thrilling world of espionage and patisserie with “A Sprinkling of Danger,” the latest installment in the captivating Alice Éclair, Spy Extraordinaire series. This exhilarating novel combines the zest of mystery with the sweetness of a perfectly baked cake, promising an adventure that is both heart-racing and mouth-watering.

Meet Alice Éclair, a remarkable protagonist living a double life that would astonish even her bakery customers. By day, she crafts exquisite pastries with the precision of an artist; by night, she transforms into a fearless spy, navigating the perilous waters of international intrigue with the same finesse she applies to her baking.

In this third adventure, Alice finds herself on the opulent movie set at the majestic Palace of Versailles. Here, amidst the glittering backdrop of filmmaking, a sinister plot is unfolding. National secrets are being leaked, and suspicion swirls around a cast of captivating characters. From the American director with a mysterious past to the flamboyant lead actress whose extravagant Renaissance wig could be hiding more than hairpins, Alice must sift through layers of deception to uncover the truth.

But the danger is as real as it is unexpected. With only her wits, a light sponge mix, and an airy disregard for her own safety, Alice Éclair must unravel a deadly plan before it’s too late. She will need every trick from her recipe book and spy manual to navigate this treacherous mission.

“A Sprinkling of Danger” stands alone as a gripping read but also beautifully complements the series. Fans of Robin Stevens’ “Murder Most Unladylike” and M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman’s “Adventures on Trains” will find themselves at home in Alice Éclair’s thrilling and delectable world. Whether you’re a newcomer or a returning reader, prepare for an adventure that combines the thrill of espionage with the charm of a classic whodunit, all served with a side of delicious cakes. Join Alice Éclair in this tantalizing tale where danger and delight are mixed in equal measure!
