just like this Lemon Tart book they may just leave melike this Lemon Tart book they may just leave me sour I wish I had the knack or writing a concise informative review of books I love reading those where they set down a brief overview of the plot and then praise or pan the book I somehow can t really do that I had high hopes or this book It was so highly rated by so many readers The writing was much better than I expected and it really held my interest throughout the book Even though there were no surprises and I had the culprit igured out or a long timeThe reason I didn t rate this book higher was that I just couldn t stand the main character Much is made of her being 56 years old She doesn t exhibit 56 year old behavior And it isn t a case of her being a young 56 year old More like a totally immature 56 year old Her character is so unbelievable to me She whines and complains about someone swearing and then justifies her own lying Lying is a much worse behavior than swearing Her sneaking around being deceitful with the police and generally superior attitude just really got to me Food does not solve every just really got to me Food does not solve every nor does it always wipe out one s rude behavior Sadie seems to think that all she has to do is make something or someone to eat and all is We Got the Neutron Bomb: The Untold Story of L.A. Punk forgiven Usually people learnrom their mistakes or unpleasant behaviors But Sadie just keeps doing them and wipes her conscience clean by baking something It s just bothersome to meI also want to interject I m surprised that this was published by Deseret BookI might try one of Mrs Kilpack s earlier books to see if I can Renovations: A Father and Son Rebuild a House and Rediscover Each Other find something there to redeem this one But then again there is so much out there to read I ve been eyeing this Culinary Mystery seriesor uite a while and hadn t read any yet I own several of them in paperback but they were random ones in the middle of the series If you ve Richard Nixon: The Life followed my reviews or know me then you know that I MUST read things in order I just don t like skipping around and not knowing everythingrom beginning to end Everything is laid out in a specific order I Am Cow, Hear Me Moo! for a reason and I just enjoy watching it unfold as the author plans it So let me just say that Iinally dove in and am starting the series I have a subscription to a site or audio and ebooks and this series is on there So here starts me listening to all of these culinary mysteries I usually listen a lot. Neighbor a single mother who was mysteriously lured rom her home while a lemon tart was baking in her oven At the heart of Sadie's search is the woman's missing two year old child Whoever took the child must be the murderer but Sadie is certain that. ,
