For Sadie Hoffmiller, going undercover as an informant for the Bureau of Land Management on an archeological site in Santa Fe, New Mexico, seems like the perfect way to stay safe and busy while a threat against her life remains unresolved. Sadie’s days are spent digging up artifacts in the middle of nowhere, but she's also digging up information on her fellow “dirt geeks.” With the help of her baking prowess and Pete's cousin, Caro, who takes to the detective work wholeheartedly, Sadie is finding herself again.

But when recent burials are found on an ancient site, Sadie finds herself in the middle of an unexpected—and unwanted—investigation. The more she digs for the truth, the more secrets she uncovers—secrets that people would kill to keep hidden.

Before Sadie knows it, she’s arrested for starting a bar fight (which was totally not her fault), her new friend is missing, and she’s worn out her welcome in Santa Fe in more ways than one. A trip to the annual hot air balloon fiesta in Albuquerque is supposed to give her a break, but before long, she learns that when you’re dealing with the black market antiquity trade, you’re not really safe anywhere.

Read an Excerpt

She put a hand to her throbbing forehead and gasped in pain at her own touch. She pulled her hand back. Even in the minimal light of the crescent moon, she could see the contrast between her pale skin and the dark stain on her fingers. Knowing the stain was blood made Sadie’s throat tighten and her hand shake from something other than the cold.

Fear began to take over. It was hard to breathe, and her body seemed to curl in upon itself involuntarily though her back and hip protested. Everything hurt. What had happened? How long had she been here?

“She went this way,” a voice said from somewhere above her, the words carrying on the wind. Another voice answered the first, but Sadie couldn’t make out what was said. She didn’t need to. What she needed to do was hide. Quick. Though she couldn’t remember everything, she knew that if they found her—whoever they were—she’d never make it back to Santa Fe.

Sadie knew firsthand how well the desert could hide a body.

What I am going to do when Josi stops writing this series? I love these book, and Tres Leches Cupcakes is no exception. I enjoyed the whole book immensely, but the last half, there was excitement on every page. When Josi throws in Sadie's humor and inner voice, which I love, I can't stop reading. Add a little Pete to the mix, and you've got yourself another awesome Sadie Hoffmiller thriller. Sadie almost is back to her old self in this book, and I missed her. But, I did appreciate the journey that she has taken in each book, and her experiences have made her a better person. I loved reading about the things she has learned, and when she's in situations similar to past adventures, she can get keep her head and focus. I loved everything about this book, and I can't wait for Baked Alaska next Spring. 5 out of 5 stars. You will be on the edge of your seat, and finally able to breath again when you reach the end. I loved Pete's cousin Caro. She was a delightful character, and a great new friend for Sadie.

Sadie is in New Mexico recovering from her last adventure. She is a magnet for mysteries--especially those involving murders--and finds herself once again involved. Things get out of hand and she ends up arrested. Pete, her cop boyfriend, is trying to help from a distance, but things get stranger by the minute. Sadie made me kind of sad in this one. She's been through so much and seems to be just a shell of herself. I love her busybody personality and it just wasn't quite there, but that made her seem more easy to relate to. She's only human and those feelings were very real. I enjoyed the storyline and the recipes look delicious. I can't wait to see what else is in store for Sadie in her next mystery. Content: The books in this culinary mystery series are all pretty clean. The murders are not descriptive. Language and romance are clean.

The mystery in this story was great like always. As the series has gone on, Sadie gotten more and more likeable. I found her extremely annoying in the first couple of books and almost gave up on the series because of that. So glad now that I didn't!
