When bakery owner Lexy Baker and her posse of iPad-toting grandmas find a dead body under Ruth’s late model Oldsmobile, it opens an investigation into a decades-old crime. It seems Ruth’s reformed crime-boss boyfriend stashed something of immense value away before he died. Too bad word is out in the criminal underworld and a dangerous killer has come to town to find it.
Armed with only their iPads, gigantic patent leather purses and a box of baked goods, the ladies must use their wit and cunning to unmask the killer before he hits too close to home.
Horrible installment in an otherwise wonderful series
Honestly I LOVE this series so much! I’ve read every book up to this and never had a complaint, but this one was frustrating. The ladies seemed bossy and unkind (especially Nans!) which I feel started in the previous book. The ladies are doing whatever they want and forcing Lexy to go along, even when she says no. Not ok! Also, Jack has never been one for pet names, but suddenly he’s calling Lexy “honey” in each and every conversation. This book felt like it was supposed to go somewhere else in the series. And honestly, this book felt like it was written by someone who thinks they know the entire story. It comes off as really terrible fan fiction. Sorry everyone, but this book is NOT worth your time like the others are!
