When Kelly volunteers to take a troop of tourists to visit Vickie Claymore's alpaca farm, she discovers Fort Connor isn't as sedate as it seems. Instead of a warm welcome, they find Vickie splayed out on her original hand-woven rug, her blood seeping into the design. The police jump on the case, but Kelly can't resist doing a little investigation work of her own.

The characters were often laughing at inappropriate times about things that weren't funny. The main character's sleuthing was not believable. I liked the parts with her dog, Carl and her friend, Steve, but most of the book was not very engaging.

Issy Randall can bake. No, Issy can create stunning, mouthwateringly divine cakes. After a childhood spent in her beloved Grampa Joe's bakery, she has undoubtedly inherited his talent.

It was a predictable book with some good moments. But the child characters yanked me out of the story every time... especially Darney who was supposed to be 10, but seemed more like a four-year-old. Louis's dialog was also not good.
