Pastry chef Tess Crawford thought moving from Chicago to quiet Silver Springs, Arizona would simplify her life. That was before she found the body of a woman with whom she had traded heated words the previous night, left her fingerprints on the murder weapon, and came under attack for trying to clear her name. When her cheating ex-fiance shows up, intent on convincing her to come back to work for him, Tess-armed with an extra batch of éclairs-decides to take control and solve the mystery herself, with the help of friends and frenemies alike.

But will that be enough to save her when she gets too close and the killer decides it's safer to get her out of the way?


  • Fun to read

    I enjoyed the book, an entertaining heroine with problems and foibles I can relate to. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I guessed the murderer and motive half way through, but still a good read.

    Fun read. Kept me reading, wanting to find out how the character was going to solve the mystery. Supporting characters were well developed.

  • Great Cozy Mystery

    Great character,and awesome storyline!Worth a read!
  • Not very likable characters

    The storyline is boring and predictable. Characters are flat and not likable, including the main character. She seems to purposely get into trouble and not very smart nor endearing.

    This book definitely deserves a 5 star rating as I could not put it down once I started reading. It caused me to stay up way too late past my bedtime. I plan on reading more books from this author when I catch up on much needed sleep 😴

    I enjoyed it. Cute, and I liked the characters, but so improbable. Not really a serious mystery as this stuff just doesn’t really happen, but a fun read anyhow.

    Was right there with you! And can’t wait to try some recipes... (At the beginning oh Chapter 29, it says “killed Annalisa” instead of Victoria.). I can’t help it. I also proof read stuff.) Anyway. Good read.
