Lemon Tart by Josi S. Kilpack

I LOVED this book!!!!!  I had no idea who the killer was until the bitter end.  It was not the person who I thought!!! Even though this is a cozy mystery, it had several twists and turns, plus some great recipes!!!!

Sadie Hoffmiller is retired and likes to help her neighbors.  She  doesn't mind watching kids afterschool, giving advice, or just letting repair men in her neighbors house. She is so trustworthy that she has keys to every neighbors house.   One morning as she is canning applesauce, police cars whiz by her house to her neighbor Anne's house.   Being the nosy old lady on the street, she heads down to check it out.  She is very helpful to the police since she does give them the key to get into Anne's house. As she follows them in, she finds a lemon tart baking in the oven. The police find Anne's body out in the yard but her toddler son, Trevor, is missing!!!! Sadie is determined to find out who killed Anne and find Trevor!!!

Great characters and I actually copied down some of the recipes to try later!
