Key Lime Pie by Josie Kilpack
Key Lime Pie by Josie Kilpack
About Key Lime Pie
When Sadie Hoffmiller’s new friend, Eric Burton, receives word that his missing daughter’s body may have been found in Florida, he immediately packs his bags, but Sadie is determined to stay home and prove to everyone that she is not a busybody.
But when she senses Eric is hiding something, Sadie is compelled to take action. Before she knows it, she’s in the heart of Miami, trying to piece together a trail littered with broken relationships, mysterious strangers, and forged documents that might just provide Eric the answers he’s been desperately searching for—or reveal a truth he may not be ready to face.
Sadie must also face a difficult question: Where is her heart leading her? Onward into Eric’s adventurous arms? Or back home to the stable and steady Pete Cunningham? If only love was as easy as following a recipe.
Once again, Sadie finds herself in the company of some colorful characters and on the hunt for some good old-fashioned southern cooking. But despite the drama and intrigue, all Sadie really wants is to go home . . . as soon as she does just one more thing.
I really like mysteries. I really like mysteries that have recipes. I really liked this book.
This is the fourth book in Josi's Sadie Hoffmiller series. I really liked the fact that Sadie is an older women(I turned 50 today). You can read this book without reading any of her others but I plan on going back and reading the others because this one was so good.
Because I hadn't read the other books the first part of this book dragged a bit for me but it quickly picked up and held my attention the rest of the story.
I was especially intrigued by Eric's exwife. The fact that the whole town looked out for her was a heartwarming thing.
I would recommend this book for anyone who likes cozy mysteries and recipes. There are several that I can't wait to try out.
About Josi Kilpack
Josi S. Kilpack grew up hating to read until her mother handed her a copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond when she was 13. From that day forward, she read everything she could get her hands on and accredits her writing “education” to the many novels she has “studied” since then. She began writing her first novel in 1998, while on bedrest with a pregnancy, and never stopped. Key Lime Pie is Josi’s twelfth novel, and the fourth book in the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery Series. The other novels in the series are: Lemon Tart (Book 1), English Trifle (Book 2), Devil’s Food Cake (Book 3). While the books all feature Sadie Hoffmiller as the main character, they stand alone in regard to plot and can be read as a set or as individual titles. Josi currently lives in Utah with her husband, four children, one dog and varying number of chickens.
