Lemon Tart - Josi S. Kilpack



Synopsis:
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 the tragedy 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!
For an added treat, original mouth-watering recipes for Sadie’s Lemon Tart, Homemade Alfredo Sauce, Carrot Cookies, Sadie’s Better Brownies, and Granny’s Gingerbread are sprinkled throughout the book. 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.

My Opinion:
This book was a delight!
I loved the cover, and that was a great start. Immediately upon reading, I was pulled directly into the plot on this cul-de-sac. I hated the idea of putting this cute book down.
Yes, it is a murder mystery, but it also has recipes hidden throughout. You know how I love recipes! Of course I tried one, and to say the least, I can surely serve my Italian Mother-in-law this dish. It was THAT good!
So was this book.
I HIGHLY recommend you, yes, all of you, get a copy and enjoy the read! It is a great trip down Culinary Lane, with a significant twist!
(5/5)

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
