Key Lime Pie by Josi S. Kilpack

Synopsis from Goodreads:  When Sadie Hoffmiller's new friend, Eric Burton, receives word that his missing daughter's body may have been found in Florida, he immediately packs his bags. Sadie is determined to stay home and prove to everyone that she is not a busybody. But when she senses Eric is hiding something, Sadie is compelled to take action. Before she knows it, she's in the heart of Miami, trying to piece together a trail that might just give Eric the answers he's so desperately searching for. In the process, Sadie finds herself in the company of some colorful characters and some good ol' southern cooking. But despite the drama and intrigue, all Sadie really wants is to go home ... as soon as she does just one more thing. 


My thoughts:  I received my introduction into Sadie Hofmiller's world when I read English Trifle earlier this year.  Key Lime Pie is the fourth in the Culinary Mystery series.  This had the mystery aspect that English Trifle had, but wasn't so much of a "whodunit" as it was a "what the heck happened" and a "do whatever is needed to save the day" kind of story.  While they are part of a series, each of these books is easily read as a standalone.  There are a few references to the previous stories, but not enough to confuse a reader who wasn't familiar with them.


If you have read any of the previous stories, you know that each volume has recipes scattered throughout.  I am really looking forward to trying some of the recipes that are included in Key Lime Pie.  The recipes range from Key Lime Pie (of course) to Southern BBQ Slow Cooked Chicken (which I really want to try).  There are also some Craisin Cookies that sound divine.  If you go to www.josikilpack.com you can download a PDF of the recipes in the book.


Sadie is a bit of a busybody, but that is exactly what makes her so easy to like.  She only has the best of intentions with everything that she does.  Its extremely amusing that she always seems to get herself in a pickle.  One of the things that I love about this series is that even though it is a mystery, there is still that sense that everything is going to be okay.  Key Lime Pie is a highly entertaining read that is perfect for enjoying on a lazy weekend afternoon. 

This will be making the rounds to all of my friends and family who like a satisfying and fun read. 

Disclosure:  I received my copy of Key Lime Pie from the author to participate in her blog tour through Pump Up Your Book.
