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?
I just love Sadie Hoffmiller. She is a combination of Murder She Wrote and Anne of Green Gables. A sort of busy body Nancy Drew grandma.
The recipes and food preparation never feel forced--in fact they make me feel right at home in a cozy murder mystery. I know, it's weird. Food is such a part of our lives and I love how Josi incorporates the cooking and the recipes into each adventure.
The cover of Pumpkin Roll is so mouth-watering that my dog tried to eat it. I am not kidding! He got sent to his kennel for chewing on the signed copy that the author so generously sent me in the mail (Bad boy, Nestle!).
What I find attractive about the culinary mysteries that Josi writes is the versatility--anyone can read them and enjoy them (I plan to give a copy to my grandmother for Christmas).
I have to admit that it took me awhile to get into Pumpkin Roll. I just didn't know what to expect in the beginning. I am so glad that I kept reading--I was rewarded with some serious suspense and entertainment for hanging in there.
Pumpkin Roll is yet another masterful blend of suspense, romance and good home cooking. Enjoy!
