I acquired this book as a free Kindle download several months ago. I finally opened this past weekend. The first few pages filled me with doubt, proving once again that you should never judge a book by its cover (or its first few pages!). Once I got into the storyline and the characters, I couldn't put my tablet down...LOL!

The plot was well developed with all sorts of twists and tuns as well as red herrings, and the final outcome was not at all expected. I liked the cultural icon touches (i.e. having the lead character meet noted sugar hall of fame artist and Food Network icon Kerry Vincent) as well as explaining some cake decorating techniques.

The characters were well drawn and interesting. Overall, I really enjoyed this book immensely. It was kind of a cross between the Greater Tuna plays, Steel Magnolias, Fried Green Tomatoes and Lillian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who mystery book series all with Dan Brown and Scott Turow thrown in for good measure. If you enjoyed those, you will most definitely enjoy this book as well as the rest of the series.
