Publisher's summary

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.

But there's no warning when her ex-husband's mistress drops dead on Sal's porch, and police confirm it's a homicide. Determined to stop her life from becoming a recipe for disaster, Sal takes matters into her own hands.

With two very different men vying for her affection, dead bodies piling up, and a reputation hanging by an apron string, Sal finds herself in a race against time to save both her business and life - before the last cookie crumbles.

Where's My Fortune Cookie?

Heroine Sally Mucci and her gal pal/sidekick can take on the world with their cookies, wisecracks and friendship, even when a corpse turns up in front of their store. Most of the characters have known each other since high school or even earlier and much of the action is driven by personality, family background, and relationships. This is a "cozy" mystery so fun and food are at the forefront and several recipes are included which I'd love to try. Narrator Karen Rose Richter had a great time creating the voices and various accents. Caution: There is a "Don't go in the haunted house!" moment when you'd like to thwack the character as you yell at her from the back of the theater.
