    Incredible Whodunit

    Book 2 in this series and I HAVE to go back and read the first in the series. There were definitely no spoilers in this so I honestly have no idea what happens aside from the name of the Bakery. Sophia Cummings is our sassy Southern heroine who brings humor with her quick wit as well as delicious baked goods to her catering customers and all the clients of For Goodness Cakes. The character development and world building is so well done I had no idea this was only the second book in the series. Maymee Bell never fails to bring us endearing characters and dazzling worlds to lose ourselves within. The whodunit was so fantastic I had no clue as to who it was or why. I guessed so wrong. The recipes at the end made me want to dive into the kitchen but honestly, I have no hope of doing them justice. Thank you to Crooked Lane Books, Maymee Bell, and NetGalley for giving me the chance to read this book and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.

    I loved it!

    I somehow missed the first book in the series, but I will rectify that! This was an enjoyable cozy with the author's usual talent for writing engaging characters, humor and a good whodunit mystery. I look forward to reading the first one, and to read further books in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Sophia and the gang are back!

    While catering the desserts at fund raiser for the local library, Sophia stumbles on one of the big donors, literally. Only he’s dead shortly after he withdrew his half million dollar donation. So many people had reason to dislike the guy, but who would truly want him dead?

But when Sophia’s bestie is the main suspect, she and the gang are on the case, no matter what her sheriff boyfriend says. These Southern Belles are on the case and won’t back down until they find the real murderer. The second book in the series is as delicious as the first one and I cannot wait for the next entry in this series. The book is a great standalone if you have nor read the first book, but don’t be surprised when you find yourself reaching for the first book, because you’re going to want more!

Maymee Bell (AKA Tanya Kappes) is one of my favorite authors! hands down! Love her writing style and characters. If you’re a cozy lover, this is a series and author you want to spend some time with!

    Entertaining story!

    Batter Off Dead by Maymee Bell has us traveling to Rumford, Kentucky. Sophia Cummings has opened For Goodness Sakes, a bakery, in her hometown with the help of her best friend, Charlotte Harrington. It is Sunday and they are busy preparing the treats for The Heart of the Town fundraiser being held that evening at Grape Valley Winery owned by Giles Dugan. The fundraiser is to raise funds for the new library addition. This is Sophia’s first big catering gig for which she has laid out a significant amount of money, so she wants to make sure that everything is perfect. At the fundraiser, Ray Peel is making enemies left and right. He reneges on the donation he promised the library, insults Madison Ridge, and has upset the winery owners. Sophia is on her way to the winery offices to collect her check, when she trips and finds herself face to face with a dead Ray Peel. Sophia quickly calls Sheriff Carter Kincaid who races to the scene to comfort her and then takes charge of the crime scene. The next day, Charlotte requests that Sophia don her sleuthing cap once again. Their friend, Madison finds herself at the top of the suspect list and her realtor clients are dropping her like a hot potato. Sophia has her hands full since Ray had made numerous enemies and her mother is assisting her with what she has termed Operation Merlot. She also must create her baked delights for the bakery and deal with a coupon issue. Someone, though, is not happy with Sophia’s involvement and tries to dissuade her. Grab a glass of wine and settle down to join Sophia on her latest case in Batter Off Dead. Batter Off Dead is a humorous cozy mystery. There are quirky characters and a charming, small Southern town for which Tonya Kappes is known for creating. Sophia is opening up her bakery, but she has not worked out all the kinks yet. She is unsure whether to ask for deposits from catering clients (the answer is yes) nor does she have them sign a contract (every catering event should have a contract with a deposit). Catering The Heart of the Town will show clients what For Goodness Sakes can provide, but Sophia has outlaid a large amount of money for The Heart of the Town fundraiser. After Sophia makes a big deal about getting paid, the matter then gets dropped and is not resolved. Sophia’s mother, Bitsy is not happy that Sophia has stumbled over another dead body, but it tickled when Sophia asks her to keep her ears open for helpful gossip. Sheriff Carter Kincaid does not want Sophia sticking her nose into his case and repeatedly warns her (he is wasting his breath). I like Maymee Bell’s (aka Tonya Kappes) writing style. It is what I refer to as conversational or friendly which engages the reader. It makes for an easy to read story which is enhanced with the steady pacing and Southern humor. I recommend reading Cake and Punishment before embarking on Batter Off Dead. It sets the stage for the rest of the series. The mystery will have you guessing with multiple suspects who each have a good motive to kill the victim. There are recipes at the end for the yummy baked goods Sophia creates in her bakery. Batter Off Dead contains friendship, family, wine, scrumptious confectionary delights, community, murder, romance and wit.
