You could call it the straw that broke the camel’s back but it was more like a Montana forest timber. Just when Vangie Vale’s life was getting back to normal after a murder that rocked her little Rocky Mountain tourist town, she found herself in the middle of another murder... as the chief suspect.Vangie stood shocked on the side of the curb as the sheriff stretched yellow crime scene tape around the front of her new bakery. Wouldn’t this make a lovely headline in next week’s paper: Local Baker Kills Parishioner With Pudding. Vangie’s road back to good graces as a part-time pastor was bumpy enough already. This would be a roadblock. Can't have that.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Yet another intriguing installment to this captivating series. By this point the main character Vangie is firmly established and I am quite hooked on her antics I must say. The combination of her being a part time pastor and full time baker makes for some interesting twists to this story that are nice keeping the reader wondering what will happen next. She tried to not get involved in the murder investigation this time but since her food was involved it is impossible. The killer caught me by surprise which is always nice. This is a must read for fans of cozy mysteries with a culinary twist and more. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars.
