Review: Tres Leches Cupcakes by Josi S. Kilpack

Sadie is back! And by back, I mean she's out of her depressed funk (at least mostly) that bound her in Banana Split. Yay!

In Tres Leches Cupcakes Sadie is in New Mexico working undercover for the Bureau of Land Management at an archeological dig site. She isn't in the know about what the BLM is investigating, but she does her job, and tries not to get involved more than she's been asked to. But, trouble seems to follow Sadie, and more is unearthed than expected at the dig site.

This eighth book in the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery series has some fun new characters, and I enjoyed the setting in Santa Fe. A desert setting with artifacts, a balloon festival, cupcakes, bar fights, jail time, and a mystery unfolded Sadie-style makes for a very entertaining read.

Tres Leches Cupcakes is a good, clean read with several delicious sounding recipes included, and a smidgen of romance. You can buy it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Deseret Book, and Seagull Book.

I enjoyed the sneak peak of the next book in the series, Baked Alaska. Could it be that Sadie and Pete are moving forward with their relationship?
