Reviews about A Sheetcake Named Desire (A Piece of Cake Mystery) (7):
Yramede
The great self-assigned November book challenge of Books with Food Titles helped me come across something I'd never heard of: Foodie Mysteries. Cupcakes, Coffee, Bakeries, Cake, Pie...you name it, these authors have covered it and put a murder mystery twist on it. I largely picked this book because puns are my favorite and I thought the title was hilarious. Also, it's relatively inexpensive for a Kindle book. Win!

The Cover:
The cover is cutesy, which I found odd for a mystery book. But, this isn't a hardcore Mary Higgins Clark mystery-thriller. In the end, it fits.

The Content:
Entertaining, breezy read. Nothing too challenging, but definitely interesting. The book read like a friend telling a killer {ha!} story. A great "medium level" beach read if you're over typical chick-lit and romance novels.

The Characters:
I liked Rita as a main character. She was a surprisingly complex for a book with cake on the front of it. She wasn't your typical air-head chick-lit heroine either, which I really liked. She was tough, smart and stood up for herself without coming off as a total bitch. Jacklyn Brady was able to strike a good balance for her.

If you're looking for something a little different, give these series of books a try. I've already picked up a Coffee House murder mystery {by a different author}. Four stars for an interesting sleuth story.

We were sad to learn we'd read all ofthe Fred Vickery series by Sherry Lewis, they were lots of fun to read and we related well to the aging Dad that couldn't keep his nose out of murder in his little town in Colorado...so were quite excited when our research lead us to another of her pen-names, Jacklyn Brady! This series takes place in New Orleans, after Katrina, and involves a Specialty Cake Company series...still reading it, (wife and I read them out loud to each other, and are reading about 6 stories so don't just breeze through, ya know what I mean? anyway, It's very satisfying writing, really holds our attention and keeps us wanting to go onto the next chapter...Highly recommended.

I always find the first in a series to be the most challenging. The characters are introduced and begin the interaction with those in a supporting role. At this point it's tough to figure out which one is expendable and won't be in subsequent books in the series.

Time to scope out the sequels.

I'm going to jump right in and say that what I loved most about A Sheetcake Named Desire was the location--New Orleans. I absolutely loved the setting of this book and the descriptions made me feel as if I was there, especially when it came to the humidity, which is so true to New Orleans. I also had to buy the book because of the play on words in the title. A Streetcar Named Desire is one of my all-time favorites and find the title of this book to be quite clever.

I never want to give too much away, so I'll just say that the book starts with a damaged cake and Rita trying to come up with a way to fix it within a very short time. The next thing you know, her ex-husband Philippe is dead. Just who killed him and why? Well, you'll have to read the book to find out. It's an interesting and entertaining story all around.

I found the book to be very well written and the mystery to be solid. The pacing was great and kept me turning the pages. The characters are very well done. Rita, a young Hispanic woman, is a very likable character and in the end I felt I knew her very well. I found her observations to be very frank and at the same time fresh. There are some funny moments in the book, too, but they aren't overblown, just fit the characters and situations naturally.

Overall, a wonderful cozy mystery series debut. I believe Jacklyn Brady has a new hit series on her hands. I will certainly be on the lookout for the next book in this series. Highly recommend to cozy mystery lovers looking for a new series they can, ahem, sink their teeth into.

To me, this is a "read one read them all" kind of book. It is a very light story- no real strong plot- the typical civilian running around playing detective and then solving the case and the police being ever so grateful. If you like "cozy mysteries" you will enjoy this- otherwise, you will shake your head and say "yeah, sure, okay"

Great book. Loved the recipes at the back,. Being a collector of recipes and a cook as well as a lover of mysteries this book really was great. !!!

I wasn't too wild about the book. For some reason just about every sterotype was represented. There was the older plump happy worker, the perky thin blonde girl, the dark depressed goth girl and ect. I can understand wanting variety among characters but each character acted in a sterotypical way. It wasn't difficult although it was a bit disappointing since I could figure out who done it just by how the character acted in the book. Rita could have been likable but I found her a bit annoying the way she second guessed herself. Also, the reason behind the death was a little weak. I don't want to give away any spoilers but I don't like it when things happen that way.
Thoroughly enjoyed this mystery! The characters were interesting and it kept me guessing until the end. Also enjoyed the recipes.
