  1. First of all, I love your books and writing style!

    I was just wondering if books 5-9 in the Patisserie series come in a boxed set too?

    Thank you!
    Kara S

    • Hi Kara. Thanks for your note. I’m glad you enjoyed the books. I don’t know if I will have the other books in a box set. If they are, it won’t be this year. Book 8 will come out in May, FYI.

  2. I love all of these so much! I’ve read almost all books in less than a week, I’m currently at 1/4 of Madeleine Murder. Any possibility for an ARC of Opera Cake Murder? *wink*
    Just kidding (unless there -is- a possibility), but OH, there will be book 9, too? This is wonderful news!

    • Hi Valentina. Thanks for your note! Yes, an ARC of Opera Cake Murder will be available, most likely in the middle of May. Please message me if you haven’t heard from me by then. Yes, there will be book 9 🙂

      • Hi Harper,
        That’s really great to hear, thanks for letting me know!
        I’ll be on the lookout 🙂

  3. Hi Harper!

    I love your Patisserie Series! I am on Book 5 now and love how you include recipes! For you Pain Au Chocolat recipe, the directions after you cut the dough into 12 rectangles is unclear. Is the final shape going to be a cylinder? So you will end up with 12 cylinders to bake? I just love Pain Au Chocolat and was hoping to try your recipe but the directions after you cut the dough into 12 rectangles is unclear and confusing. If you can help clarify into detail, I would appreciate so I can try! Thank you!

  4. First time on your web page and so excited that the books are listed in read order!!! Thank you!! I’ve read all 8 books and looking forward to number 9! May I ask what ARC stands for? I see it referenced above.. Thank you for your wonderful and fun books!!

      • Thanks for the ARC definition. I have one more…
        POV ?
        My take is it’s a few pages about one of the characters in the book.
        Thank you, Judy

  5. Hi, Judy,
    I might be a little late answering this, but POV stands for Point Of View. Your definition is pretty much correct 🙂

  6. Oh my goodness, I just checked my Archives and sure enough it was there. By mistake, I don’t know. I read so many different series books that it’s hard to keep track. I’ve started a check list hoping it will keep me on track as to what I need to read next and what I’ve already read. 😀
    Thank you for your reply!

    • Hello again!
      I hate to see a series end but on to another one. Have any idea when book 10 will be out?
      Thank you for a great series!

  8. Hello!
    I want to try some recipes in Eclair Murder, but I found something missing. Recipe #3 : how much cornstarch, and Recipe # 5: how much sour cream? Thank you!

    • Hi Karen, It should be 1/4 cup cornstarch. As for the sour cream, as much as you’d like. Sorry for the formatting error for Recipe 3. Salted Caramel Pastry Cream is not an ingredient – the ingredients below make the pastry cream. It’s piped into the choux pastries once it’s made. I’ve fixed this in the books now. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
