Book Description

With a big anniversary party in the works for her parents, Ryan will pretend to be Abby’s husband for just one last weekend.

Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake. Living alone in the massive 2-story has only made him miss her more. When her parents call him out of the blue about their anniversary party in Summer Harbor, Maine, Ryan believes God has dropped a golden opportunity straight in his lap.

Abby McKinley never exactly told her parents about the divorce. A strained relationship with her dad has culminated in a distant relationship with her parents, but she’s finally succumbed to her mom’s pressure to make the drive for their 35th-anniversary party.

Then Ryan shows up on her doorstep, looking as devastatingly handsome as ever. When he insists he’s going to Seabrook, with or without her, Abby knows she can’t say no. Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. Besides, he only wants to check in with his best friend from college-her cousin Beau, who just lost his dad. It’s just a one-week road-trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This is really a sweet and special story from author Denise Hunter! Ryan has made no secret in the prior books in this series of his love for Abbi. And the one thing he wants is to win her back, but Abbi definitely doesn’t want anything to do with this guy who broke her heart. So when she agreed to go to her family for a week with Ryan, she knew nothing could happen. Even though her parents thought they were married, and they were going to act like a married couple for the sake of her parents.

I don’t cry a lot when I read books, but with this one, I just couldn’t help it. The tensions, the attraction, the romance, and the tenderness and forgiveness. It all pulls you into the story at the very beginning, and it doesn’t let go until way long after you finish the book. I hated for Married ’til Monday to end and I will be keeping this entire series by Ms. Hunter to read in the future!

Book Description

When delicious baked goods become lethal, it’s time to find a killer.

Kindness is a virtue Meanness is a sin Better watch your bakery pies For poison I’ve slipped in

The Amish Artisan Village in Middlebury, Indiana, has been decorated with every color of balloon and flower for the Race for a Cure. As manager of the Village, Amber Bowman is thrilled to see the turnout-and relieved to have something to distract her from the “Poison Poet”-an individual who has been sending notes containing bad poetry to warn of poisoned baked goods.

Then Ryan Duvall crosses the finish line of the race-and falls down dead, murdered in broad daylight. But who did it? And why? The police suspect Preston Johnston, but Amber refuses to believe her employee could do such a thing.

Amber once again looks to her young Amish friend Hannah Troyer to help her find the killer-and to determine if it’s the same person leaving the cryptic poems and pies. Can they help the police before the Poison Poet strikes again? Both Amber and Hannah will need to draw on their faith as they fight to preserve the peaceful community they’ve built at the Amish Artisan Village.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Another murder in the Amish Artisan Village in Middlebury, Indiana, and the Poison Poet strikes again and again leaving pies with notes attached saying the pies are poisoned. And then the emails Amber is getting, that is clearly from the Poison Poet?  Ms. Chapman does it again with a murder, mystery/suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seats. And in an Amish community at that!

I felt so bad for Amber, the harassing emails were causing problems with her work and marriage, because the Poison Poet was determined that she wouldn’t tell anyone what was going on. But she had too many friends and family that loved her, and I was touched at the way the pulled together to help her. And another person that was helped was Preston. I really like Preston and the sweet relationship forming between Preston and Mocha, which you will need to read the book to find out about these two! And who in the world could have gunned Ryan Duvall down in broad daylight, just as he finished his race?
A lot of questions, and a lot going on in Murder Freshly Baked, and I just know you will enjoy it as much as I did!
