It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

First Impressions of Lemon Tart by Josi S. Kilpack

Why did I purchase/check out/request this book:
LDS* fiction, foodie, cozy mystery, first in a series...

I received a book/gift catalog in the mail that had an interesting cozy mystery, Blackberry Crumble. Oh, that sounds delicious. ;) The description sounded okay but it wasn't the first in the series so off the amazon I went.

Lemon Tart it is.

The police cars show up in chapter one and the body is discovered in chapter two.

Already I know that if Sadie wasn't so nice, everyone would hate her. She lives on the corner of a cul-de-sac with a large window over her kitchen sink overlooking the street. "She liked to watch the comings and goings of the neighborhood." She has a key to everyone's home, except Mr. Henry. Now she is retired and widowed, imagine the time she has to "watch the neighborhood". See? could be creepy is she wasn't so nice. Sadie is mentoring the late single mother and is wondering where Trevor is. He's two.

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.

Oh, the recipe for Mom's Lemon Tart is at the end of chapter one. Off to read. . .

*LDS = Christian Fiction with Latter-day Saint characters/philosophy
