English Trifle by Josi S. Kilpack. Published by Deseret Book.
|Retail Price: $17.95|
Although Sadie Hoffmiller may seem like an annoying busybody, she has a lot of compassion for others and wants to help wherever she can – like helping the police solve the murder. Her passion for food and the inclusion of her culinary recipes and expertise make me want to try the recipes immediately. I have not tried the recipes from English Trifle yet, but I have tried several recipes from Lemon Tart, and they were all delicious. I love the historical aspect of the English customs in this novel as well as the unexpected twists and turns Sadie encounters as the mystery unfolds. Just when I think I have everything figured out, the author introduces a new plausible scenario. She kept me guessing throughout the novel. This novel was light and entertaining, and I enjoyed it very much.
