Lemon Tart: A Culinary Mystery

by Josi Kilpack

Rated: None

“A recipe for murder:
“5 families living on Peregrine Circle
“1 flowered curtain tieback
“1 missing child
“1 body in the field
“Mix with a long list of suspects and top with two very different detectives. Increase heat until only the truth remains.”

This cozy mystery is just that — cozy! Main character and amateur sleuth/busybody neighbor Sadi Hoffmiller is a delight. At fifty-something, Sadie is a widowed mother who is in a steady relationship once again. She is the rock of her neighborhood, every neighbor even trusting her with keys to their homes.

When a tragic murder takes place, Sadie is the first to discover the circumstances. Trouble is, she knows more about each neighbor than the police could possibly discover on their own. Sadie is funny, quirky, and just the person to get her neighborhood back to normal. With a little romance and a lot of yummy baking, you’ll have fun trying to guess “who-done-it” until the last couple of chapters.

Add to the fun of guessing the delight of some new recipes to try: after reading this I baked some peanut butter bars — nothing as fancy as lemon tart or cinnamon-ginger cookies, but tasty.

Rated: None.

    I am really enjoying your books. They are really fun to read. I am also really enjoying the recipes. However, I am having trouble getting the rest of them so I can print them out off of the computer. I just got my printer fixed. Now I can’t find the recipes online. I really want to try some more of your recipes.
    Is there anyway you can send them all to me at my e-mail address?
    Thank you,
