The Baker’s Man by Jennifer Moorman.

In the Southern town of Mystic Water, magic is always in the wind--and in the ovens Anna O'Brien inherited several gifts from her late Grandma Bea: culinary superpowers, a bakery in a charming Southern town, and a mysterious box with a note: Open the box only when you need to. You'll know exactly when you do, and you'll know what to do with it. I love you. The night her presumed fiancé crushes her dreams, Anna opens the box and finds "magic sugar" inside, along with a recipe to bake "the perfect man." Encouraged by her best friend Lily (and maybe a wee bit too much rum), a heartbroken Anna sets out to do what she always does when she's feeling blue: bake. She hardly believes her eyes the next morning when a man--a breathing and rather handsome man--is in her bakery and seems to know all her likes and dislikes, her quirks and preferences. Elijah is everything Anna dreamed and nothing she expected. Where did he come from? Is he real? And when he fashions his own ideas about what makes a good life, can she let him go? Escape into this whimsical and enchanting tale of magical realism and the spellbinding power of following your dreams as Anna discovers the sweetest side of life.

While Idaho Slept by J. Reuben Appelman.

Just after 4:00 am on November 13, 2022, four University of Idaho students were viciously stabbed to death in an off-campus house. The killings would shake the small blue-collar college town of Moscow, Idaho, dominate mainstream news coverage, and become a social media obsession, drawing millions of clicks and views. While a reticent Moscow Police Department, the FBI, and the Idaho State Police searched for the killer, unending conjecture and countless theories blazed online, in chatrooms and platforms from Reddit and YouTube to Facebook and TikTok. For more than a month, the clash of armchair investigators and law enforcement professionals raged, until a suspect--a 28-year-old Ph.D. candidate studying criminology--was arrested at his family home 2,500 miles away in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania on the day before New Year's Eve.
