Review:

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Mel and Angie are like sisters who have gone into business together, owning a bakery shop.  Sometimes they even argue like sisters.  And they are very good at solving mysteries together.  When Mel’s mother’s date is murdered, her mom is a suspect.  They will have to figure out the culprit to save her mom from going to jail.  

The writer is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions kept me engaged throughout the entire book.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The mystery is well plotted and you will want to collect clues to help you solve it.  

I really like this series.  The characters are top-notch, the setting is inviting and the mysteries are intriguing.  I would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.
