This was just an okay read. More like 2.5 stars, but I'm feeling generous today! I didn't really like Sadie. I suppose pious would be the best word I could use to describe her. She was too full of herself with all her thoughts about what a "good" person she was. And then she did some things a real person could never have gotten away with. The story itself wasn't bad, I just didn't care for the protagonist. I would probably read another of these if I could it on PBS or something. There ARE some really good sounding recipes in here though! And you can print out the recipes for all of the books in this series on Josi Kilpack's website.
