When Sadie Hoffmiller's new friend, Eric Burton, receives word that his missing daughter's body may have been found in Florida, he immediately packs his bags, but Sadie is determined to stay home and prove to everyone that she is not a busybody.
But when she senses Eric is hiding something, Sadie is compelled to take action. Before she knows it, she's in the heart of Miami, trying to piece together a trail littered with broken relationships, mysterious strangers, and forged documents that might just provide Eric the answers he's been desperately searching for — or reveal a truth he may not be ready to face.
Sadie must also face a difficult question: Where is her heart leading her? Onward into Eric's adventurous arms? Or back home to the stable and steady Pete Cunningham? If only love was as easy as following a recipe.
Once again, Sadie finds herself in the company of some colorful characters and on the hunt for some good old-fashioned Southern cooking. But despite the drama and intrigue, all Sadie really wants is to go home. . . as soon as she does just one more thing.

I was just crazy with anticipation over what escapade Sadie is going to get involved in next, I couldn't put this down until I knew. Sadie is funny, curious, smart, resourceful, compassionate, and a good friend. AND she's normal. I love that she's not afraid to get involved when a friend is in trouble, even if the police think she's a busybody. Look at how many clues she picks up on, and how she's so intuitive. I have enjoyed this series so much, its like going along with a neighbor and being a part of the adventure. And its fun. I can't wait until the next installment.
Josi S. Kilpack has made each one of these books fun and more involved than the last one. It's hard to wait for the next one! It is just like your next door "busy body" neighbor getting caught up in a mystery!
There are few characters I’ve encountered in my 30 years of voracious reading who have struck me as being more real and more genuine than Sadie Hoffmiller. I caught myself sitting down to write her an email the other day, as I had tried a new recipe that I was sure she would enjoy. Imagine my dismay when I remembered she’s a fictional character! But apart from brilliant characterization, Kilpack weaves a mystery that truly delights. Compelling, and full of delicious plot twists, I have not read a single one of her novels where I guessed the ending (and I, fellow book lovers, am a VERY good guesser). So I challenge you to see if you’re cleverer than me. Can you figure it out before Sadie does (and before I did)?
I loved Key Lime Pie. I rarely give 5 full stars to any book, but this one gets it. I loved everything about it.
The characters are interesting, unique, quirky—especially Sadie. She is so determined not to be a busybody, and yet, that's one of the traits that makes her so endearing. I love the way her mind works—and her heart.
The plot has a lion's share of twists and turns. Several times I thought I had it all figured out, only to have the story spin off into another layer of intrigue and mystery. KLP was a completely engrossing and totally fun mystery!
If you like culinary mysteries like Diane Mott Davidson's Goldy Schulz mysteries or Gayle Trent's Daphne Martin series, you'll love Sadie Hoffmiller.
This is my favorite of the Sadie Hoffmiller series. It was a real page turner and I really enjoyed the plot. It was well put together and kept me guessing. Good job, Josi!
This was so much fun to read. Josi Kilpack introduces some fun new characters and surprising twists to this installment of her cozy mysteries.
