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.
Praise for Baked Alaska
Josi Kilpack has done it again. You would think that all these events that occur in Sadie's life wouldn't be natural, but Josi Kilpack has a way of making you believe that it just "happens" and it is normal. I have grown to love Sadie's character, even if she is a busybody, you can't help but cheer for her as she attempts to solve a mystery or crime. One of my favorite series. :)

What a great captivating mystery this is, or should I say mysteries? We are on an Alaskan Cruise with Peter and Sadie, and Sadie's children Breanna and Shawn.
Breanna lives in London, and is planning a wedding, that her future MIL is taking over the planning of! She wants a small wedding and has picked out her gown and cake, but not what the Duchess wants...I forgot that she is marrying into Society. Sadie wants to help her Daughter, but how?
Upon boarding the ship she soon sees her son in an argument with some woman, she wants to know what is going on? No one seems willing to tell her so she starts investigating. Right up Sadie's alley!
There are at least a couple of murders, attempted murder, deception, attacks, and other devious activities on this beautiful Alaskan Cruise. Wow! So much adventure going on, and just when one thing is kind of cleared up, there is something else happening.
I really felt sorry for the character of Maggie, she was really being used, and had already had so much heartbreak. I hope in the end that some kind of relationship is forged between her and Shawn, and Sadie.
If you like a really good mystery this one is for you, it sure won't let you down.
