Reviews of Sweet Masterpiece - The First Sweet’s Sweets Bakery Mystery by Connie Shelton

Fenechty Publishing reviewed on June 21, 2022

Stumbled upon this book by accident and really enjoyed the story. This is the first book in a series that is already complete, so I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. The fact other books have already been published will be a boon to those fed up of reading first books in a series where no further books are written. Connie Shelton is to be commended for having completed this series, and several other series, and I am looking forward to reading some more of her work.

I couldn't connect with the protagonist at all. The story is mostly told, what makes it actually very boring. Even if it is a cozy mystery series I expect at least a little excitement. For me, it was too shallow and it lacked emotions to really grab my attention. The only thing I liked was the baking, it made want to bake cookies and cakes.

The words “magic box” “magical powers” and “mystery” in some of the reviews (at Amazon where I downloaded the book 2 years ago for my Kindle) caused me to pick this book for my 2014 summer load of books to read. I’m glad I did. A fine story plot that taught me about being a caretaker of foreclosed properties, a baker, and not being afraid to snoop around when things don’t seem to be right—a wonderful glimpse at what makes story characters real.

WARNING: Do not read this book if you are on a diet! Samantha Sweet, the heroine of this entertaining tale, is a baker by trade and inclination, and the book is full of loving descriptions of her creations, starting with a triple-chocolate cupcake with chocolate butter cream on the very first page of chapter one. But Sam also looks after empty houses and checking out one of those leads her into investigating a suspicious death, with the help of a mysterious box she has been left by an elderly lady …

This is a gentle book, softly-paced and involving very real people. Sam, her daughter Kelly, and her is-he-is-he-not? love interest, Deputy Sheriff Beau Cardwell, are the sort of people you might meet and like everyday. Perhaps the villains of the piece are slightly less well-imagined than the sympathetic characters, and occasionally the gentle pace dips too much causing a lapse in tension, but overall this is a delightful read and the supernatural element is very delicately and convincingly done.

I’m just off to get the next one in the series …
