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)

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
