Award-winning author Josi S. Kilpack introduces a new series of culinary "cozies" that is sure to tantalize mystery lovers. In this debut volume, cooking aficionado-turned-amateur detective Sadie Hoffmiller, tries to solve the murder of Anne Lemmon, her beautiful young neighbor--a single mother who was mysteriously killed while a lemon tart was baking in her oven. At the heart of Sadie's search is Anne's missing two-year-old son, Trevor. Whoever took the child must be the murderer, but Sadie is certain that the police are looking at all the wrong suspects--including her!

Armed with a handful of her very best culinary masterpieces, Sadie is determined to bake her way to proving her innocence, rescuing Trevor, and finding out exactly who had a motive for murder.

I really enjoyed this cozy mystery.It had a very good level of suspense,and though I am a terrible armchair detective,I'm pretty sure that this one would keep most avid mystery fans guessing.

Very well written,and good character development really drew me into the story so that it was hard to put this book down.

Highly recommended for cozy mystery lovers.

This was my first book in this series,but I am sooooo hooked,that I can't wait to read the rest!

Love the character "Sadie" - these books get better with each read ... definitely great to read from the first book, English Trifle and go in order - don't have to, but you see the Character evolve & the stories get funner every time!
