Third time is the charm!
This is a great read. I couldn't put it down. Paige really brings the characters to life, and keeps you guessing until the end.
I highly recommend this book and series.

Isabelle “Betts” Winston and her grandmother invite students from all across the country to attend Gram’s Country Cooking School. Many apply but only a few are chosen each year. This year a student arrives, Freddie O’Bannon, who has an acceptance letter but Betts nor her grandmother can remember seeing his application or can find any record of him in their files. They decide to allow him to stay if they can verify his references.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Another arrival puts the issue with Freddie on the back burner. Cylas Gent, a ghost who may have been a romantic interest of Gram’s, seems to need some help solving a mystery from the past.
Then another mystery arises as one of the new students is found dead. Gram and Betts have their hands full. Can they solve all mysteries without getting burned??
One of the reasons I love this series is because each story contains not one but two whodunits. With the help of their friends, both dead and alive, Gram and Betts do everything they can to get to the bottom of these mysteries. The ghosts only know so much and their memories are not very good, but the current residents of Broken Rope, Missouri have some resources that help bridge the gap a bit between the past and the present. Sometimes the mystery from the past points them in the right direction for those in the present and the current ones give a link to those in the past too.
All the characters in this story seem so real and jump right off the page. A picture is easily painted in out minds that bring every one of them to life.
This time a favorite ghost from a past story returns and it is so darn easy to forget he is a ghost for both Betts and us readers. Paige Shelton, you made me cry!!
The new ghost’s story is very unique and it truly captivated me from beginning to end. The author adds just the right little touches that makes it possible for us to step right over into their story.
This book is absolutely brilliant and a pure pleasure to read! I am always a little sad when I reach the last page. My visit to Broken Rope ends much too soon. We are treated to some tasty recipes to tide us over until the next installment. We have had chickens, potatoes and bread…wonder what tasty morsel will be featured next. All I know is I CAN’T WAIT!!!

If Bread Could Rise is the third book in the A Country Cooking School Mystery series. I enjoy both of Shelton's series, but I think this has become my favorite and one of my favorite "ghost" books, too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A new class is about to begin and one of the first to show up is Freddie O'Bannion, but he doesn't he doesn't seem to be registered, even though he has a letter showing acceptance by Grams. As Betts and Grams are getting to know the students, Betts thinks it is strange that one students, Brenda, seems to be taking a lot of notes and class hasn't even started yet. Their first item they are to prepare for school is Sourdough Bread. Everyone starts a sourdough starter and shortly after, Roger is found dead in front of the school. Apparently he has been poisoned. But who could have done it? Blame immediately falls to Freddie, but both Grams and Betts want to be sure before accusing him.
The part that I most enjoy about the series is the various ghosts that appear in each book looking for help. Jerome is back again to look after Grams and Betts, as he has in the first two books. Jerome can best be described at as a "guardian ghost". Gent Cylas is the ghost that is looking for answers to his death. Gent and his family had died in a fire at the Kennington Bakery, but there is no record of their being in the bakery and noting about where they disappeared to. Gent, who was a good boyhood friend of Grams, would like for this mystery to be solved. Jake the archivist for Broken Rope and the only one to know about the towns ghost, is back to help Betts deal with the spirits.
In the romance department, things a going fine with Betts and Cliff. Her main concern deals with how much information about the towns ghosts she should share with Cliff
I'm looking forward to the next book in this exciting series.
