For anyone that knows me, I'm not much for mysteries. However, I am trying to expand my horizons and branch out into other styles of writing. I saw this on a free booklist and decided to give it a whirl. I figured since it had somewhat to do with food, how bad could it be? I was pleasantly surprised with the entire read. The characters were well developed, the story was easy to read, and frankly, not lame. In fact, I was quite taken by the whole thing and really enjoyed myself throughout the whole book. Even trying to solve the mystery before it was over. Ms. McRae did a great job keeping that tidbit to the end. In Heaven Preserve Us: A Home Crafting Mystery we see Sophie May Reynolds trying to live her entrepreneurial life as soap maker and canning preserves during the and answering the helpline at a local crisis center at night. One night she takes a call from a mysterious suicidal guy who ends up stalking her via phone. Worse yet, the crisis center is in financial trouble, Sophie Mae's boss mysteriously dies of food poisoning and everyone becomes suspect, including the crisis center secretary! What a mess but oh what fun to watch Sophie sleuth her way through the maize of clues until she finds the culprit. With the help of her roommates, friends in the preserve exchange and the townsfolk of Cadyville (including Sophie's boyfriend, Detective Ambrose) Sophie stumbles upon a few more things than she bargains for. I must say that I really enjoyed Heaven Preserve Us: A Home Crafting Mystery by Cricket McRae. It was a fun, quick read and easy to follow. I actually thought this was the first book in the series, but just recently found out that it's the second. I am definitely going back to read the first one before continuing on. What I liked the most was the recipes and other ideas that Ms. McRae shared with her readers. This one is definitely a keeper!

I love the characters, feel like I know them well. There is always a twist and I have not figured one out yet. Look forward to the next book.

This is the second entry in Cricket McRae's Home Crafting series (Lye in Wait was the first). The main character, Sophie Mae Reynolds, has a small business making soap and other beauty products. She is a young widow and shares a home with a divorced friend, Meghan, and Meghan's precocious daughter Erin. This cozy series comes complete with recipes - some edible, some bath & beauty products. Sophie Mae has started volunteering at a local crisis hotline that's based at the Heaven House Community Center. Her first shift she has an odd call - and ends up with a stalker! Then the head of the Center dies of botulism poisoning - and Sophie Mae is convinced it's murder. I wasn't as convinced this time that Sophie Mae acted logically - she seemed to overreact in some circumstances, causing her to take significant risks. That said, I'll be back for the next one - if only to find out how Erin does at the regional Spelling Bee!

I stayed up too late finishing this one! Sophie Mae plays detective again getting herself in trouble just like in Lye in Wait. The second book of the series has both a murder and a twist. McRae's plot decidely heated up towards the end. I look forward to the next book in the series, not only for the fun but the recipes!
