    "Couldn't Finish"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, The narrator would not pause at certain points in the narration and you would feel like she was reading a run-on sentence. I ignored the first instance, but it happened multiple times. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore and stopped listening. This is probably a good book.

    "Excellent beginning to a series. I'm hooked!"

    It isn't often that the first book in a series is really this good. The writing is excellent. The character development is superb! And the mystery is great as well! A trifecta!

    The plot could very well be something in the news today. A very heavy subject - political corruption and incompetance. But, while the writer handles the issues seriously, there is enough humor to keep it from becoming too heavy. I did figure out who-dun-it, but not until the book was half over!

    I really came to identify with Savannah and enjoy her take on life, crime, friends and authority.

    The narrator did an excellent job. The accents were 'just right'! She made the characters come alive!

    This is a great find in this genre. I'd recommend this to anyone liking a good female-detective-catching-the-bad-guy who-dun-it!

    "Fabulous story with lots of twists and turns!"

    Fabulous story with lots of twists and turns that cannot be guessed! Wonderful characters that have you laughing or trying to figure them out. Lots of drama and dilemmas that you cannot figure out! A greatly entertaining and fun book to listen to.

    Story
    "Cross Between Bewitched and Rachael Ray"

    It's almost unimaginable that I didn't enjoy a novel with the word "Desserts" in the title. Sadly, I was expecting a light hearted southern mystery without the supernatural twist.

    I have no problem believing in ghosts and evil spirits but not "magical" pies which make people fall instantly in love and "sweeten" sour personalities.

    While well written and humorous at times, the plot was just not my cup of tea. I would absolutely try another book by this author in another genre.

    "Okay but sort of crude"

    Sounds like a writer is just not as well versed with what the reader needs to read.

    "Great book - I love Dina Pearlman's reading!"

    I love crime stories but have needed a change from forensic thrillers - just too awful!

    This was very good indeed - I did not guess who did it and laughed out loud more than once. I love the main character and will order all the next titles.....
