Even though you know that the bakery burns down, it still doesn't make it any easier when you read it. At least for me .... I have read all of the books in the Cookies & Chance Mystery series and I feel like I know the family. Even though the Muccio family is crazy they are a believeable crazy. I can actually see them as neighbors and being a customer of the bakery. Catherine Bruns has an amazing talent.....her writing of the story takes you there !! You will feel like you are standing in the middle of the bakery, or what is left of the bakery, you can feel the emotion Sally has when she has a breakdown over the bakery, and you will absolutely catch your breath over ANYTHING Mike does for her. You will long for a friendship like Sal and Josie have, you will be thankful you have the parents that you have....or you may wish your parents were a little like Sal's parents, and you will completely love Grandma Rosa. When you are looking for a book to read or a new author to follow, I highly recommend Catherine Bruns and the Cookies & Chance Mystery series. When you read a book, you want a connection, a feeling of belonging and a reason to stay. That is what will happen when you read this series. I can promise you that you will find a place for you at the dining room table with the girls enjoying coffee and some of Grandma Rosa's cooking or maybe a fortune cookie. Just be careful with the fortune and don't freak out because of the coffin in the living room..... It's all just part of the charm of the family.

this was my second in this series. it sort of makes me think of the whole Greek wedding franchise- how the family is close and always in each other's business. in this one, Sally's pre-wedding celebration is interrupted when her lawyer sister's current client comes to discuss things about the case. Soon after, her bakery is on fire- with the dead client in it- and her sister is missing. Sally has to figure this out and clear her sister's name. easy to read, and will definitely read more.

Burned to a Crisp Another well written book by Catherine Bruns. I like that I already knew the characters and that throughout the book she touched on information from the previous book. Mike and Sal have a great relationship and it draws you in to continue to read more. I think every woman should have someone to love them like Mike loves Sally. I liked that there were a couple of story lines to follow. Sally and Mike and her sister. It was well written and a quick read. I can’t wait for the next book.

Sally is waiting for Mike, her fiance, to pick her up when Mrs Gavelli comes along demanding fortune cookies. Her grandson, Jonny, is with her and he has moved back to teach at the hight school. Josie, Sally's best friend and partner, states the Mrs. G is a rude old lady. Sarah, the part-time worker, says she is afraid of her. Mike finally arrives and they leave to get ready for the party. They have had a long road getting to this point. Mike assures Sally that nothing is going to happen to interfere with the wedding. Catherine Burns has a winning series. The characters are all flawed in some way but they are still likeable. Sally has a interesting family who are so funny. Sally has to do some major maturing in the book and she does. I love this series and look forward to the next book in this series.

This murder story has numerous twists that keep the reader guessing and not wanting to put the book down until done. Filled with arson, murder, intrigue and romance. The ending is a surprise without making the reader feeling like there is more to the story.
