Sally Muccio's had her crosses to bear: a cheating ex-boyfriend, crazy Italian parents, and an unfaithful husband, just to name a few. After her divorce, she returns to her hometown to start a novelty cookie shop whose specialties include original fortune cookies, served with a sprinkle of foreshadowing.

Determined to stop her life from becoming a recipe for disaster, Sal takes matters into her own hands.

I really enjoyed the story line and the characters were great. The narrator did a great job.

The story was great. Had a lot of humor to it. The narrator did a great job. I found the story kept me wanting to listen and see it through to the end. At no time was I bored or having to replay sections.

This story was not the author’s best. I found myself disliking the heroine, her friend, and the person she left in charge of her business.- I have the book in e-book and audio. I do not recommend the audio version. I was quickly annoyed by Kate’s indecisiveness. As for her friend Rene – she’d be gone in a New York minutes with all the crap she pulled. She just didn’t act like a real friend. Rene was concerned only about Rene. The story murder wasn’t hard to solve even though there were plenty of suspects. I couldn’t wait for this to end.
The written version was better.
