So last month I reviewed Josi Kilpack's Devil's Food Cake. It's the third in the series. Now I'm doing Lemon Tart... the first in the series. Totally backwards, I know.
(And I still haven't read the second book...)
This is our introduction to Sadie Hoffmiller. She's more of a neighborhood busybody in this one, but it works for her. :) Especially since her neighbors are family.
But when the young woman down the street is found dead, Sadie's world starts to turn inside out. As her boyfriend suddenly seems like a stranger and her brother may or may not be involved, she becomes more and more determined to discover the truth of what's going on.
I think this one worked a little better than the third, but both are good stories. Great cozy/fluffy mysteries-- easy on my sleep-deprived brain. ;) Plus they have some yummmmmmmmmy sounding recipes in them.
I'd definitely start at the beginning rather than working my way backward, though.
