Book Review: The Baker's Wife



Then a scandalous like cost her husband a pastoral career.  Now the two work side-by-side running a bakery, serving coffee and baking fresh bread.  But the hurt still pulls at Audrey.

Driving early one morning to the bakery, Audrey's car strikes something-or someone-at a fog shrouded intersection.  She finds a motor scooter belonging to a local teacher.  Blood is everywhere, but there's no trace of a body.

Both the scooter and the blood belong to detective Jack Mansfield's wife, and he's certain that Audrey is behind Julie's disappearance.

But the case dead-ends and the detective spirals into madness.  When he takes her family and some patrons hostage at the bakery.  Audrey is left with a soul-damaged ex-con and a cynical teen to solve the mystery.  And she'll never manage that unless she taps into something she would rather leave behind-her excruciating ability to feel other's pain.


Just reading the back cover is enough to get you excited about the book, don't you agree? Then you turn the book over to see the foggy woods with a lone woman...intriguing!  Yes, I like a good mystery and this one fits the bill.....a fast paced page turner.  The characters were great, the plot mysterious, the suspense drove me crazy and all in all this was very VERY good book.
