Baked Alaska by Josi Kilpack, Blog Tour Book Review & Giveaway!





Baked Alaska by Josi S. Kilpack

An Alaskan cruise is the setting for amateur detective Sadie Hoffmillers latest adventure. Sadie plans to spend time relaxing with her two grown children, Breanna and Shawn, and her boyfriend, Pete, while enjoying the luxury and cuisine of an elegant cruise ship and helping to plan her daughters upcoming wedding. But even as the crew prepares to leave port, Sadie has suspicions about the voyage ahead and the relationship between her normally easygoing son and a mysterious female passenger he obviously knows but refuses to discuss. When the woman is discovered unconscious during the second night at sea, Sadies apprehension escalates. Over the last few years, Sadie has developed an extreme dislike for secrets and it would seem her son is keeping one from her. *Includes eight new mouthwatering recipes, tested and approved by the official bakers of Sadies Virtual Test Kitchen.


My Review:

I love the culinary mystery series by Josi Kilpack!  Baked Alaska certainly did not disappoint!  In fact, I found it quite refreshing!  It was a totally different spin on the series and when I thought I had everything figured out, something else would come along to surprise me!  I enjoyed that it took place on a cruise ship and involved Sadie's entire family.  It was nice to have them altogether in the novel.  I love Sadie, I can't ever seem to get enough of her spunky and energetic character!  She makes this novel come alive and I found myself smiling frequently from her antics!  If you enjoy a good mystery novel, then you will love Baked Alaska by Josi S. Kilpack!  Five stars for a brilliant addition to the series!  Keep them coming Ms. Kilpack!


You can pick up Baked Alaska  via AmazonBarnes and Noble or Deseret Book.


Happy Reading!!!

  1. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
