“Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree, the star of Graves’s Home Repair Is Homicide series…is back in this charming series launch….The characters are appealing, and down east Maine is a delightful place to visit. Graves fans will enjoy catching up with old friends.” —Publishers Weekly
“Sympathetic characters, effective plot twists, a vividly described small-town Maine setting, and the baking frame add to this satisfying cozy that will appeal to fans of Joanne Fluke and Diane Mott Davidson (for the baking details) and Leslie Meier (for the Maine setting).” —Booklist
“As her handywoman heroine reinvents herself in chocolate, Graves adds enough physical danger to her comfy tale of small-town mayhem to move it into the…range of the cozy thriller. Gives new currency to the phrase "baking up a storm.".” —Kirkus Reviews
