  • A great addition to this charming series

    4.5 stars Pastry chef Kate McGuire moved to Coral Cay, Florida for a fresh start and is now co-owner of the Cookie House Bakery. In this third installment, Kate's friend Desiree is in town with her fiancé Judd Cooper, a famous marine biologist, and the two decide to have a spur-of-the-moment beach wedding. The entire town is abuzz with the news and Kate couldn't be happier for her friend. But when the big day finally arrives, the groom never shows up. Desiree is convinced that Judd has been kidnapped, however, all signs point to him being a runaway groom. Kate and her friends are determined to help Detective Ben Abrams uncover the truth behind Judd's disappearance. A fun, fast-paced mystery that kept me engaged and guessing until the end. Loved the characters and their interactions. The setting was really lovely as well and so vividly described that I felt like I was right there on the beach, enjoying the sunshine and I could practically smell the delectable goods being baked at the bakery. As for the mystery, I thought it was well-crafted and not at all how I expected it to turn out ( always a plus). All in all, I enjoyed the third book in this charming series and look forward to another visit to Coral Cay. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • Beaches, Turtles and weddings

    When one of Kate’s friends arrives in Coral Cay from New York City, the visit turns into a celebration as Desiree and her fiancé Judd decide to marry on the beach. Kate has made the wedding cake and the sun is setting as the bride arrives for the wedding on the beach. When they can’t find the groom or justice of the peace, the bride is sure the groom has been kidnapped, but the police think the bride may have been jilted at the altar. Having spent time with Judd and Desiree Kate believes her friend, but some of the things she starts hearing as people start talking makes her second guess her belief in her friend a bit. As the Coral Cay Irregulars come to aid Desiree and Kate, they start digging deeper and and finding bits and pieces of the puzzle, but Kate can’t see the big picture. Will they see the bigger picture before it goes up in flames, or is the bride really as delusional as they make her out to be? Only time will tell. A fun series in a tropical location that will get you geared up for the warmer weather. The red herrings keeps you going back and forth between the likely suspect until the end. A great read for the beach bag or just sitting by the fire and dreaming of Summer. You won’t be disappointed.

  • series

    baker, Florida, family-dynamics, friendship, cozy-mystery, series, dog, situational-humor, verbal-humor*** I'm sure it was a great book for followers of the series, but I felt left behind a bit too often. And since I abhor reality TV, there went another star. The mystery surrounding the missing groom was okay (but no cigar). Sorry to disappoint, but I was disappointed, too. I requested and received a free temporary ebook from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley. Thank you!

  • A sweet treat!

    A Tale of Two Cookies by Eve Calder is the 3rd A Cookie House Mystery. It can be read as a standalone for those new to the series. This is an engaging cozy mystery set in Coral Cay, Florida. Kate McGuire is part-owner in The Cookie House where she whips up delectable cookies with Sam Hepplewhite. There is a delightful cast of secondary characters that includes Maxi and Kate’s dog, Oliver. The characters are well-rounded, friendly, and relatable. There are vivid descriptions of Coral Cay, the beach, and the various cookies. It allows readers to envision they are on lounging on the beach with a good book and a bag of fresh baked cookies from The Cookie House. The mystery was clever for a cozy mystery. I did arrive at the solution early on, but it was fun following Kate’s investigation to the resolution. There was a good wrap up of the crime. I like it when all loose ends are tied up. I did feel the story was a tad long (fifty-chapters). A little editing would not have been remiss. The ending of A Tale of Two Cookies is one that will leave readers smiling. A Tale of Two Cookies is a sweet treat with scrumptious cookies, a gone groom, a wrecked wedding, a bothered bride, threatened turtles, a beautiful beach, and a pushy photographer.
