Drop Dead Delicious: A Maggie And Odessa Mystery

Drop Dead Delicious: A Maggie And Odessa Mystery - Jill Brock DROP DEAD DELICIOUS BY JILL BROCK

Odessa Wilkes and her best friend, Maggie Swift, are back in another hilarious mystery. Odessa has recovered from her anxiety attacks and started a new life. Comfortably baking desserts at her family’s restaurant, The Blue Moon, and settled into her new romantic relationship, all seems well and calm. Then Odessa’s embezzling ex-boss from Eastman & Kendrick, Burke Peterson, comes back. Did he make some kind of deal? Why is Burke back in town? Is Odessa going to kill him like she always planned?

Much to everyone’s surprise, Odessa has the opposite reaction. She greets Burke Peterson with a huge warm hug. Maggie is confused. Lee goes into crazy boyfriend mode and shows a jealous streak. Candace just wants everyone to stop making a scene in front of the customers. Burke soon obliges the crowd and makes an exit, leaving behind his wallet. Its not long before Maggie & Odessa try to find out why Burke has returned and if he’s really guilty of embezzlement.

Meanwhile, Odessa has entered a Bake Off contest. She needs to determine the best recipe ever in order to win. If only her Aunt left behind the recipes to her delicious cakes like she left behind handmade quilts.

This book is filled with comedic adventures of the amateur detectives. Author Jill Brock’s sequel is a fast, great weekend read. The plot has multiple storylines, but very easy to keep up with. The characters are just as memorable and hilarious as when we first met them in PENNYWISE. I look forward to more adventures with Maggie & Odessa.
