Can You Start the Series in the Middle?
This is a series I have jumped around in. I have read multiple books in the series, but I haven’t read them straight through in order. You can follow the story starting in the middle. I’m sure if you read them straight through you’d have a deeper attachment to Clare’s love life and the plight she has been on to get to where she is in this book.

Marie’s Thoughts

Fast paced, fun, and full of adventure, this book was over far too quickly. Which is saying something because at 349 pages, it is already longer than many cozy mystery books. The author does a nice job weaving multiple story lines together and keeping you hooked until the very end. There is a massive section of recipes in the back of this book. I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and try them out (especially Clare’s Cannoli Cream Cupcakes!)
