Jaycee Sullivan thought it was just another typical day when her pastry chef sister, Jax, asked her to help deliver chocolates to a local winery. However, the discovery of a dead body was anything but typical for Jaycee. Then when the new detective in town, Mike Connors, demands Jaycee keep her nose out of the investigation, she decides she has no choice but to take matters into her own hands. After all, her sister’s baking reputation is on the line and the killer is still on the loose. With the help of Gramps, a retired Army colonel, her mom, and Tillie, a former trapeze artist and contortionist, Jaycee is on a mission to snag the killer before her sister’s reputation is forever tainted.
Review by Babs
We meet Jaycee and Jax the Sullivan sisters and new series for Jenna St James that I hope will be around for a long time to come.
Jaycee is the oldest and opens a bookstore that also has a bar. Her partner Gramps ( her grandfather and his dog Duke- yes named after the good man himself John Wayne ) helps her run it. Then we have Jax who is a pastry chef.
Jaycee finds a body and gets to work as her sister can use all the help she can get being a suspect. But Mike the new detective and hottie makes it known he wants Jaycee to back off but that just makes her dig in her heels and work harder.
With all goodies ie cupcakes, brownies, truffles and more you will find yourself hungry.
