Book review of Pumpkin Roll by Josi Kilpack
Pumpkin Roll by Josi Kilpack
Sadie Hoffmiller is looking forward to spending her favorite baking season of the year making delicious New England recipes in Boston, Massachusetts, with her favorite leading man, Pete Cunningham, as they babysit his three young grandsons. But when the boys insist that Mrs. Wapple, the woman who lives across the street, is a witch, Sadie and Pete are anxious to distract the boys from such Halloween-induced ideas. However, it gets harder and harder to explain the strange things that keep happening, particularly after Sadie learns the eccentric Mrs. Wapple has been attacked in her home. As the unexplained occurrences escalate, Sadie finds herself embroiled in yet another mystery with life-or-death consequences. Can Sadie discover whoever—or whatever—is behind the mystery before anyone else gets hurt? Or will this be Sadie's last case?

My Take: I really like this series. Sadie is my age and she is just starting her own investigating agency. Why not everything mysterious seems to follow her. This time she has gone to a suburb of Boston and the lady who lives across the street " the witch of the street" is acting strangely and mysterious things are happening in the house. Of Course sprinkled throughout the book are very delicious sounding recipes. This was a very enjoyable mystery and it was perfectly themed for this time of year. I recommend it. And you don't need to have read any of the others in the series but you will want to after you read this one.
