This is the tenth book in the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery Series. It's only the second book for me, so Caro is a new character for me. Caro is actually Pete's cousin who is Sadie's fiancé. I'm assuming Caro was in other books.
ROCKY ROAD finds Sadie again doing her own investigation into a mystery/crime. This time, I can say Sadie was actually trying to respect the police and not get involved. The storyline centers around the disappearance of Dr. Trenton Hendricks, who has been missing for two months and is now presumed dead. Dr. Hendricks along with his partner Dr. Waters operates a cancer foundation that was instrumental in saving Caro's cousin, Tess' life. Tess convinces Caro that something isn't right about Dr. Hendricks' disappearance and they have the idea to have Sadie help them. When Sadie is reluctant to do so, Tess is a little witchy to say the least. I’ll just put it out there, I HATED Tess!!!
The book started out a little slow, bordering on being boring. Tess’s attitude and bitterness didn’t help. But once Sadie's detective skills kicked in, the book got so much better. An investigation into the disappearance of a man turned out to be so much more. For once, Sadie is actually asked by the police to help. With her help, the investigation uncovers lies, deceit, theft, adultery, and possibly murder. Sadie’s faith in God is called into question and she’s going to need her faith to help her get through this case. Be prepared for twists and turns. After all, the book is called Rocky Road.

Rocky Road is a great addition to the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary
Rocky Road is a great addition to the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mysteries. When I first heard about this book I was excited that it was taking place in a familiar location (St. George, Utah). The story was very intriguing, and my suspicions were proved wrong with Kilpack's twists and turns.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The resolution was a big surprise. It all made sense after it was revealed, but I'll admit I was a bit sad about it. The "bad guy" was so smooth. I was definitely taken in, and the idea of someone doing everything this person did is just sad (maybe the idea hit me harder being familiar with the community-yes, I know this is fiction, but the idea of this type of deceit was just sad).
The recipes in this book sound so delicious! I can't wait to give them a try. And, the sneak peak of Josi's next book is such a great way to end this book. I am really looking forward to learning more about Sadie's extended family, and how the mystery presented will unfold.
Rocky Road is clean with a great amount of suspense. I missed having Pete in this story, but he is mentioned enough throughout that it keeps those interested in their romance happy.
If you are looking for an entertaining suspense that is a quick read, don't miss Rocky Road and the rest of the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mysteries.

Originally Sadie was just going on a girls'-out-weekend.
They were suppose to go shopping, eating, and walking for the breast cancer fund-raiser.
But her friends had other ideas....
Knowing Sadie had solved a few mystery cases, Caro and Tess had put together ideas on how to find out what really happened to Dr. Trenton Hendricks, a local doctor who has helped so many women get through breast cancer and the organizer of the cancer fund-raiser....
He has been missing for the past two months.
Sadie wants nothing to do with it as she has the wedding to plan and she doesn't even know any of the people involved.
Then she ends up helping with the luncheon for the funeral services and talking with the ex-wife.
Seeing how the Doctor's disappearance has affected her, Sadie starts asking questions.
One questions leads to another and soon Sadie finds herself right in the middle of the police investigation.
Knowing she can possibly help she agrees to find some answers...
But it will take her on a very "Rocky Road."
SUCH A GOOD BOOK!
A DEFINITE MUST READ!
And of course there are recipes too!
*Ol' Dad's Dutch Chicken
*Ol' Dad's Dutch Potatoes
*Maddox Rolls w/ Raspberry Butter
*No-Brainer Fruit Salad
*Strawberry Pretzel Pie
