Of course her stumbling blocks make for good entertainment. Her first class is a bit disastrous with an unappealing peach pie, a snooty "professor," and a classmate that seems less than friendly. As the book progresses we see theft, fire and murder enter into Poppy's world. She becomes a detective as well as a baker, and I enjoyed this book that was as light as a well made soufflé and equally satisfying for a book of this genre. We are also treated to some great looking recipes that I am looking forward to experimenting with this weekend.
I am generally not a sweets eater, but I defy anyone to read this and not want a piece of pie. This is a book that can probably be finished in one sitting which is a good thing, because it will give you time to try your hand at something to satisfy those cravings. I do know that I plan to bring fresh baked cookies and a glass of milk with me when I read the next book in this series.
