Everyone swears by Yeast of Eden, the Mexican bread shop in town. But tonight, the only thing on the menu is la muerte . . .What I Thought:
Struggling photographer Ivy Culpepper has lots of soul-searching to do since returning to seaside Santa Sofia, California. That is, until the thirty-six-year-old enters a bread making class at Yeast of Eden. Whether it’s the aroma of fresh conchas in the oven, or her instant connection with owner Olaya Solis, Ivy just knows the missing ingredients in her life are hidden among the secrets of Olaya’s bakery . . .
But Ivy’s spirits crumble when a missing classmate is suddenly discovered dead in her car. Even more devastating, the prime suspect is Olaya Solis herself. Doubting the woman could commit such a crime, Ivy embarks on a murder investigation of her own to prove her innocence and seize the real killer. As she follows a deadly trail of crumbs around town, Ivy must trust her gut like never before—or someone else could be toast!
This one started out kind of slow for me, but then it started getting so good that I literally did not want to put it down. Ivy, who is told she is a lot like her mother who was killed in an accident six months, so of course, when one of the ladies in her bread making class, Jackie, is found dead in her car, Ivy just can't leave well enough alone. As she is investigating the death of Jackie, she comes to the conclusion that her mother's death is some how connected to this murder. Throw in Ivy trying to help her new friend, Penny Branford, with her neighbor issues, there is a lot going on in this story. This was a well thought out plot and the writing is superb. I was literally left guessing till the very end. There were so many twists and turns in this story, I thought I was on a roller coaster. I look forward to more in this series, as I would like to visit the town of Santa Sofia again.
I received a complimentary copy of this book.
