Please welcome Erin Healy, author of The Baker’s Wife who is touring the blogosphere with LitFuse Publicity!

Reviewed by Christen Krumm

Audrey Bofinger is a pastor’s wife with a special gift. She can feel other’s pain. After a scandalous lie regarding the Bofinger’s son and deacon Jack Mansfield’s daughter, the Bofingers are all but barred from the church. Now they own a bakery serving coffee and baking bread.

Early one very foggy morning as Audrey and her son are driving to the bakery, their car hits something. After further inspection they realize that it is the Vespa belonging to none other than the deacon’s wife that got them kicked out of church. There is blood everywhere, but no one can find the body. Of course, Jack pins the blame on Audrey and makes it his mission to make sure she goes down for the crime. Thinking the case is going nowhere, Jack spins out of control and decides to take matters into his own hands. He takes the Bofingers and a handful of other customers hostage at their bakery, hoping to force a confession. Audrey wants nothing more than to help Jack find his wife and thus begins the race against time to find her before it is too late.

The Baker’s Wife will leave you breathless! Erin Healy’s way with words is amazing. She will put you right in the middle of the crime scene. You will actually be able to smell the bread that is baking in the Bofinger’s bakery (hence the fact that your mouth will water and have you running to your kitchen to bake a loaf of your own!) The story is a fast paced, edge of your seat mystery that will have you staying up late into the night guessing until the last page! A great book for any mystery lover!
