Can't Wait Wednesday - January 31st

This meme is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings.

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

This is the first in a series and looks good. The cover alone is making me hungry.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Life just got a little sweeter in the island fishing village of Eastport, Maine. Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree and her best friend Ellie are opening a waterfront bake shop, The Chocolate Moose, where their tasty treats pair perfectly with the salty ocean breeze. But while Jake has moved on from fixing up houses, she still can't resist the urge to snoop into the occasional murder.

Jake and Ellie have been through a lot together, from home repair to homicide investigation. So when they decide to open a chocolate-themed bakery, they figure it’ll be a piece of cake. With Ellie’s old family recipes luring in customers, they expect to make plenty of dough this Fourth of July weekend. Having family home for the holiday only sweetens the deal for Jake—until the ill wind of an early-season hurricane blows up her plans. When the storm hits, Jake’s grown son Sam is stranded in a Boston bus station, and her husband Wade is stuck on a cargo ship. But as bitter as the storm is, something even more sinister is brewing in the kitchen of The Chocolate Moose—where retired health inspector Alan Blake is found murdered.

Ellie never made a secret of her distaste for Alan, who had been raining on their parade with bogus talk of health code violations. Now, with no alibi for the night of the murder, she’s in a sticky situation with the police—and it’s up to Jake to catch the real killer and keep Ellie living in the land of the free.

  1. I just get hungry looking at that cover alone so I'm sure it'll be the same for the actual story. :D

  2. I agree that the cover is tasty looking! And this is the same author that used to do those home repair mysteries and same characters? Enjoy!

  3. I'm always excited to see what books you feature on CWW. I always know they are going to tempt me to add them to the wishlist and yep, I'm usually right!

  4. I've had mixed results with Sarah Graves' books but I do love the sound of this one.

  5. Oh this title...makes me want to bake!

  6. Sounds like a good one...and the delicious chocolate cherry cheesecake is tempting me. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Between that book cover and the episode of Golden Girls that I watched earlier this evening, I really want some cheesecake!

  8. Too early for sweets, but I am having my breakfast.
