BONUS: Recipe included.

Ashley Adams is settling back into her life in Seagrass, TX after leaving a broken heart and criminal ex-boyfriend in Paris, France. Her French sweets catering company has finally landed a major job, making Ashley grateful for all that is going right – her business, her work partnership, and reconnecting with an old friend Ryan.

All that changes when Ashley overhears one of the guests arguing with a strange man in the bathroom. Things get worse when the woman is found dead the next day, poisoned by one of Ashley's cream puffs.

Ashley must solve the mystery to save the reputation of her nascent business. She is thrust into the lives of people from her past who all have something to hide. Is the murderer a jealous lover? An out-of-towner with business interests? A local hero turned criminal? Teaming up with her old friend Ryan and her loyal dog Dizzy, Ashley sets out to solve the crime.

Will she be able to solve the murder before her business reputation is completely ruined?

I really enjoyed the book to read. Really kept you guessing on who done it. There were some errors that need to be edited but it's easily able to get passed it. Enjoyed the recipe and recipe link. Anxious to try them. Read the first chapter of the second book that was included. Not sure how well I'm going to take to it. At the end of the first book you have Ryan telling her that he wants more with her but she says she wants to take it slow. Now in the beginning chapter of the second book you say that she doesn't know what Ryan wants with her if anything with her and that she will have to see what she can find out from the Uncle. This makes her seem like a stupid idiot and completely backtracks what happens in the last chapter of the first book. Don't really care for that.

If bad editing gets to you, do not read. I would love to go back and count all of the double word combinations not spaced. There were almost one per page, sometimes two. This definitely was a cream puff book. Light and airy with no substantial filling.

Love this story. The characters are great - believable, likable. I adore tales with dogs. Dizzy is wonderful! The plot is well written, nicely paced and has some twists. Cannot wait to read the next book!

The book is easy to read even too many sentences missed the punctuation and the space between the words . I was intrigued by the mystery and surprised at the end . Lack of romance made characters kind of one sided . Looks like the only ones who has blood in their veins are the very good dog and the very bad killer . Still , it is the first book in the series . So , something about characters may get development . I hope to see it in next books . G.K.

Ashley Adams owns a French Desert Catering Service, Seagrass Sweets. Her friend, Patty, owns the French Cuisine Catering company, The Southern Bird. They have been invited to cater the annual Women of Influence Awards Banquet. The next morning, Colleen, one of the people from the banquet, is found dead in the guest bathroom. The witnesses from the party said that she had gotten sick immediately after eating one of the deserts. Ashley had heard Colleen arguing with another person the previous night, but does not know who she was arguing with or what the argument was about. As a result, she is hesitant to tell the sheriff about the encounter. Together with her long-time friend, Ryan, and Patty, Ashley is determined to find out who killed Colleen and save her catering business in the process. With no shortage of suspects, the story is full of twists, turns, and surprises.

Surprisingly well-characterized for a shorter cozy mystery. Would've been better if it were a little longer and had more room for plot development. Good clean fun for those of us who prefer books with clean language and no sex.

Crepe Murder, a Sea Grass Sweets Cozy Mystery by Sandi Scott is a prequel to the other books in the series, all set in Sweet Grass, Texas. This book takes place in Paris and introduces the reader to Ashley and Patty, who headline in the other books. This is a delightful book and an enjoyable introduction to the regular series. Ashley and her boyfriend, Serge, are in Paris, supposedly for a vacation with just a little work thrown in. Ashley is a computer hacker, a good one, and a legal one. She is subcontracting to the company Serge works for. The problem is, she is stuck inside a little apartment all day hacking into client's websites in order to check their security...and never seeing Serge. She decides to take a cooking class, so one of the things on her bucket list for Paris will come true. Serge has a fit and comes home even less often. At the class, Patty is the instructor and she and Ashley hit it off. A crepes cart sets up shop in Ashley's neighborhood and the crepes are heavenly. Soon he is setting up outside the restaurant where the cooking class is held. All the neighboring restaurants are upset because it is cutting into their business. Ashley and Patty just decide to make a better crepe and win their customers back. All is going well until someone murders M. Babin, the crepe man. And worse...Patty is arrested. And so begins Ashley's sleuthing career. I really like these books and this one gives details that have only been hinted at in the regular series, about Paris and how Ashley and Patty became friends an ended up in Sea Grass. These are well-rounded characters that have goals in life that do not include solving murders, but what is a girl to do? The mystery is decent and the clues are numerous and subtle.

You are not going to be able to guess who was able to use one of Ashley Adams Cream Puffs to murder a guest that was attending one of the first large catering jobs of Ashley's new business. She returned from France with another chef, Patti and together they were taking the small town by storm--until the murder occurred. There are several suspects but Ashley really can't decide--she just knows there is something she is missing! Ashley gets an old friend, Ryan, to help her solve this mystery. Of course she really likes Ryan but is afraid to ruin their friendship by allowing the relationship to go any further--Ryan is interested--but is too shy to say anything!! I think I may have to read Book 2 ro see if these two ever actually get together or just stay friends!
