Publisher's Summary

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 her beautiful young neighbor - a single mother who was mysteriously lured from her home while a lemon tart was baking in her oven. At the heart of Sadie’s search is the woman’s missing two-year-old child. Whoever took the child must be the murderer, but Sadie is certain that the police are looking at all the wrong suspects - including her!

Loved it!

A friend referred me to Josi's series and I am so glad that she did. This book was more than I expected, it was not a shallow story. The book was not filled with sex or swearing, just a very interesting story about friendship, caring, and not giving up. I hope that the rest of the books are as interesting as this one. When I really like books, I will go back in a couple years and relisten. This will go on my "to listen to again" list.

Spoiled by the main character

I was hoping to like the first book of what looked like an interesting series and go on to read the other books, but the main character was so annoying that I don't want to see any more of her. I had a hard time believing that an adult would have to have it explained to her by her college-aged daughter that she was being unreasonable to expect the police investigating a murder to give her -- a neighbor of the murder victim -- regular updates on their progress. She expected to waltz into a lawyer's office and have the lawyer tell her all about the affairs of a client. She got all indignant about a detective asking her to hand over some documents that had belonged to the murder victim and claimed that she had given them all the evidence she had while managing to hide a business card that the murder victim had had. She seemed immature and naive for her age.

On the other hand, the mystery was interesting (though the amateur detective only figured out what had happened when the murderer confessed to her) and the narrator was good. Still, I'm not inclined to give the character another chance.
