KAPPY KING and the PIE KAPER by
I'm so excited to be back with Kappy and Edie. They are a perfect match for each other as friends. Ok one is English and the other is Amish, but together they make for lots of excitement in their small community.
The big talk around town is about the festival coming up. It is sure to draw a big crowd and lots of things to buy and eat. Someone is taking the pie contest a little too serious when a member of the community is attacked in her home. This woman is know for her delicious pies and now that she is out of the running it may be a slam dunk for someone to win .
I loved the antics Kappy and Edie get into while investigating the crime. They try so hard to act innocent while questioning people, but they don't have everyone fooled. The big question is why and who changed the rules of the pie contest? A pie is just a pie until it becomes the prize is what I say. There is also a celebrity who has come to judge the pie contest this year. That sure gets the attention of Kappy and Edie. Who is trying to sabotage the contest and will do anything to win? It's another home run for the author with this series.
I love visiting this special town and I absolutely adore Jimmy. He is a wonderful character and adds a sparkle to the story. His love for animals is wonderful and he takes great care of them. Jimmy is becoming more independent , but his helicopter sister can't quite let go yet. There is also perhaps a romance starting up between two characters which I am excited about. I'm not going to mention names, but it is fun to read the silly things they do to get each others attention. Don't miss this fun story filled with laughs, mystery and always exceptional writing by the author.
I received a copy of this book from the author. The review is my own opinion.
