    Lemon Tart

    we read Lemon Tart for our Book Group in March. It was very fun talking and reviewing the book. We all enjoyed the characters, the plot and the recipes. For dessert at book group, we sampled the brownies and the cookies from the book. The surprise ending of "who done it" was great.

    Delicious Mystery

    This book has many intriguing elements: a mystery, humor and yummy recipes!
    Sadie Hoffmiller is a busybody neighbor who knows her way around the kitchen. When a delicious mystery rears its intriguing lemon head, Sadie pushes herself into the middle of it; she can't help herself, especially where food is involved.
    I liked Sadie and look forward to reading more of her adventures. She's spunky, honest, smart and grounded. Plus, her neighbors get to enjoy Sadie's baked goods.
    Sadie was sharing her baking knowledge with a young neighbor. The neighbor is killed and her two-year old son is missing. Can Sadie connect the clues in this murder recipe without getting herself in trouble?
    This 'cozy' mystery was a fun, clean, quick read that kept me guessing until the mystery was solved.
    The books in this series would make delightful gifts for any reader on your list.

    Fun read!

    Josi Kilpack's Lemon Tart is a fun read. I read English Trifle first (the second in the series), and was excited to read the first installment of amateur sleuth Sadie Hoffmiller.

    I really enjoyed the final chase sequence after the murderer is revealed. I also liked that the murderer was such a surprise--I'm usually pretty good at calling the murderer (except when my imagination is far more interesting than the author's!), but Kilpack totally got me.

    At times, Sadie can be a little preachy (okay, it almost makes me *want* her to get her comeuppance!), but she does hold herself to as high a standard as she holds others, and she recognizes that she's not perfect.

    And of course, I can't wait to try the recipes!

    enjoyable read

    I enjoyed this culinary mystery. The Main character is likable and the plot thickens in the end to be very enjoyable. I will read another.

    Lemon Tart

    Josi Kilpack's LEMON TART is a recipe for murder, intrigue and fun. This first book in her culinary mystery series introduces Sadie Hoffmiller, a widowed and retired with nothing to do but cook, garden and watch her neighbors. When her beautiful young neighbor Anne Lemmon is murdered and her child is missing, Sadie takes it on herself to investigate; much to the chagrin of the two detectives assigned to the case (a real good cop-bad cop duo). Kilpack has created a fantastic group of characters; keeps the reader in suspense and adds a few recipes along the way (for those of us you like to cook). I enjoyed reading this fun mystery.

    Very Cozy Culinary Mysteryy!!!!

    Lemon Tart: A Culinary Mystery by Josi S.Kilpack

    With Josi's previous books on issues, her newest is the start of a delightful culinary series. I've always enjoyed culinary mysteries, what with several mouth-watering recipes interspersed through out just to whet our appetite, it just makes you want more. Since this one is Lemon Tart, the cover is uniquely yellow!!!! Sadie Hoffmiller, cooking afficianado and amateur sleuth, finds her neighbor's dead body in a field out in the neighbor's back yard. The police tend to suspect Sadie when she runs ahead of them searching for suspects and reasons why the young mother was murdured. With more suspects looming on the horizon, Sadie's not sure what will happen next. And, Anne's two year old son is miussing and it's up to Sadie to find him and bring the murderer to justice. With her second in the series, English Trifle, due out in Aug, you'll want to read this and savor each page!!!!

    What to Make of This?: Bramblestar X Lionblaze

    Bramblestar POV: <p>I groaned in my sleep and then purred. <br>Dream: I was walking through the forest when I saw him, his beautiful golden tabby fur shone in the sun. Before I had been disgusted by my lustful feeling for Lionblaze, as I had thought he was my son. But now that he wasn't... I jumped on him and licked his gorgeous face. "Mmm mate me, father..." He purred. I groaned and thrust into his tight tail hole and h tightened around me, I was surprised he wasn't in any pain but then with dissapointment I realized this must only be a dream. Best make the best of it! I pulled out and then pushed into him again and he tightened more around me almost painfully hard and I was stuck inside him but I continued to thrust and cu<__>mmed on the spot. <br>I jerked awake to a very painful bon<__>er. Today is the day. I thought and stood, padding from my den and down the rock like steps of the ledge. I spot Lionblaze heading out of camp with Dovewing and Cinderheart and growl. I walk as casually as I can while trying to hide my erect tomhood. I exited camp ad let out a breath I followed the patrol's scent and smelle they had split up, Lionblaze with Dovewing, that surprised me as it was Cinderheart that he mooned over. I crept through the bushes and what I saw shocked me, Lionblaze was mating with Dovewing! He had her hips gripped tightly and was pounding into her they both yowled loudly as they came and collapsed in a heap on the ground. Dovewing got out from under Lionblaze who was still slumped in exhaustion and padded away saying she was going to hunt now. Now was my chance! I darted forward and got on top of Lionblaze who let out a mewl of surprise. I pushed him into a crouch and thrust my fully erect barbed member into his tailhole, he yowled in pain and jumped up, trying to scramble away but I held him tightly in place and thrust back inside him I stroked his still dripping pen<__>is with my tail and he bucked hips hips forward and then pushed back for my co<__>ck, I groaned in pleasure and took hold of his scruff posessively and humped him hard he thrust forward to meet my tail again. I ground my hips against him hard and growled lowly. "Bramblestar?!" He meowed, finally figuring it out. "Yes, son." I purred through his scruff. "God... You're so... Big!" He said, panting heavily. "And you are oh so tight!" I ground out. "Fu<__>ck me harder!" Lionblaze growled and pushed back against me to get more and I pushed myself further in and squeezed his di<__>ck harder he growled and cu<__>mmed, I followed suit and we both yowled to the sky. I pulled out and rolled the now thourouly tired tom onto his back and began licking his large tomhood an he returned the favor deep throating me, I hissed in pleasure and swirled my tongue around his pee hole and then between his balls, and up his length and then down. I groaned as he began to knead my ball sack gently at first and then roughly, I pounded inside his mouth roughly as he did in mine he groaned. "Here it comes!" He cu<__>mmed in my mouth an I swallowed the strong streams as he co<__>ck spasmed obn my tongue. My balls began to tighten, and I thrust, his tongue rubbing the underside of my barbed member I groaned and thrust harder and faster. "Oh yeah... Cu<__>m in my mouth dad!" Lionblaze said, his voice muffled by my thick tomhood. I growled and thrust faster, hitting the back of his throat making him gag slightly before I exploded in his mouth, my thick cu<__>m trickling down his throat.

    LEMON TART is the first in a series of culinary mysteries, with

    LEMON TART is the first in a series of culinary mysteries, with recopies included throughout the story.  Sadie Hoffmiller lives in a small, friendly community where neighbors watch out for each other, and also seem to know everyone's business.  Sadie's a widow, and her children are all grown-up and moved out of her house.  Therefore, she loves to help other people, and sharing her cooking and baking skills with those around her.  




    When , Anne, a young single mother, is found murdered in her back yard, Sadie seems to be the neighbor who was most involved with her, and was helping her learn cooking and gardening.  With Anne having no other relatives, Sadie was called upon to identify her mangled body.  But the bigger question became, what has happened to Anne's two year old son, Trevor.




    Anne wants to help to find Trevor , and his Mom's murderer, but the two policeman working the case seem to have a mystery grudge going between themselves already.   One policeman welcomes the inside knowledge that Sadie brings to the case, while the other one wants to charge Sadie with the murder.  Working this case becomes a trial in itself.




    I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions of all the characters in this story.  Even though Sadie was a bit of a busybody neighbor, her actions seemed very reasonable in the situation because the focus was often on the officers bickering, rather than focusing on the investigation.  So, of course, Sadie found herself in numerous compromising and scary situations.  Then when Information about Anne, showed she was not who she seemed, everything got even more interesting.




    Exciting mystery, yummy recipes, good characters, and less than perfect police procedurals made for a great read.  Looking forward to the next read in this culinary mystery series!

    Great book!

    When my grandma told me to read this I thought it would be some old boring history of a lemon tart but it is actually a murder mystery. It takes you on alot of r
    twists and turns and is very surprising at the end. After I read this book it became my absolute favorite.
