I’ve only read “Baked Alaska”… so far!  I liked the book, “Baked Alaska” very much and will look for more books about Sadie Hoffmillers and her adventures.  I was a big fan of “Murder She Wrote” and this story reminded me of that series.  Sadie takes off on an Alaskan cruise (my dream trip!) but it’s not long before unusual things start happening.  Sadie doesn’t exactly mind her own business and her curiosity leads her into surprises about her children.  Ms. Kilpack did an excellent job describing the protectiveness of a mother and the feelings that erupt when a mother finds out her child has a secret.
“Baked Alaska” was a very enjoyable read, perfect for a winter day.  It’s a great book to curl up with, a read with a cat purring in your lap.  The main character is interesting, smart, and just quirky enough to have you wondering what she’s going to do next!

Author Josi S. Kilpack

Josi S. Kilpack grew up hating to read until she was thirteen and her mother handed her a copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond. From that day forward, she read everything she could get her hands on and credits her writing “education” to the many novels she has “studied” since then. She began her first novel in 1998 and hasn’t stopped since. Her seventh novel, Sheep’s Clothing, won the 2007 Whitney Award for Mystery/Suspense, and Lemon Tart, her ninth novel, was a 2009 Whitney Award Finalist. Josi was the Best in State winner in literature for 2012 and currently has two books (Banana Split and Tres Leches Cupcakes) as finalists in the 2012 Whitney awards.

Josi currently lives in Willard, Utah, with her family.
