It seems strange to see most of the book set in the soap opera world of ‘Kiss the Bride’ as we’re used to being in Corinna’s bakery, but the lively cast of characters working on the soapie and the mystery surrounding the leading lady make sure that the reader isn’t pining for the bakery.
One thing that left me pining however was that Jason is missing for most of the book, and we’re consoled only with several postcards he sends Corinna from his trip. He returns in the end, but I felt he could have had a lot of fun working on the soapie set with Corinna.
The subplot that created the ‘cooking the books’ title is interesting enough that we don’t find it’s intrusion on the soapie set storyline offensive at all.
This is another good addition to the Corinna Chapman series and I look forward to the next instalment with eager anticipation.
