A Halloween book review by Joan Badie
In a Salem setting, the main character, Lizzie Tucker, is amusingly described and possesses beyond normal traits. She inherits a historic saltbox that brings her to Massachusetts and takes a job as pastry chef for Dazzle’s Bakery. She finds she has unusual talent for making cupcakes and one special customer orders two dozen a day that sets the stage for the first of Seven Deadly Sins, Gluttony.
As in the Stephanie Plum series, two intriguingly different men appear in Lizzie’s life to enhance the adventure of finding the first of seven stones that represent the seven Deadly Sins. Lizzie is told she is one of only two humans with the supernatural power to find the mystic stones. This truly is great Halloween reading, and the story has you begging for more.
