#23: Baked Alaska - Josi Kilpack

(Affiliate link)


An Alaskan cruise is the setting for amateur detective Sadie Hoffmillers latest adventure. Sadie plans to spend time relaxing with her two grown children, Breanna and Shawn, and her boyfriend, Pete, while enjoying the luxury and cuisine of an elegant cruise ship and helping to plan her daughters upcoming wedding. But even as the crew prepares to leave port, Sadie has suspicions about the voyage ahead and the relationship between her normally easygoing son and a mysterious female passenger he obviously knows but refuses to discuss. When the woman is discovered unconscious during the second night at sea, Sadies apprehension escalates. Over the last few years, Sadie has developed an extreme dislike for secrets and it would seem her son is keeping one from her. *Includes eight new mouthwatering recipes, tested and approved by the official bakers of Sadies Virtual Test Kitchen.

Review:
I read Lemon Tart ages ago and knew I would one day read more by this author. Not only does Josi tell a good mystery story, but the recipes after some of the chapters I love!!
Now, this story was quite intriguing, though the last half was better than the first. It was hard to initially put the finger on the culprit, but once you knew, you were on the edge of your seat for the remainder. You just had to know how it would all turn out. 
I love that in a mystery! Even when you have it solved, the story stays exciting.
It also had the sweetest ending ever! Perfect for such a delectable treat!


5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
