I wanted to read something light and on the short side. Unfortunately I misplaced my copy of Critique of Pure Reason so I had to do with this freebie. It is short and it is well short.A woman opened a pie shop in Key West which became reasonably successful. Her daughter having not being able to find a good job after a college joined her mother helping her with financial part of the business. This setup took exactly 60% of the book. Finally way into the second half a murder happened. By the way, [...]

One of Marilyn's loyal customers collapses in front of the shop and chaos ensues. Fergus dies and his death is declared a homicide. Marilyn's daughter, Tiara, is the prime suspect.The first in a series, A Lime to Kill does a good job introducing us to the main characters. The plot moved steadily and the murderer was not obvious. On to book two!
This was very good. A new series by Ms Durand. This one is all about pies and Key Lime pies and other desserts with a key Lime component. Takes place in Key West, and has some really interesting characters. I think this will be a good series, and I am looking forward to seeing what the second in this series is like
I absolutely loved this book. What a fun murder/mystery. I have to admit that I had figured out who the murderer was as soon as the murder was discovered. However, I never thought of the reason behind the murder! I definitely plan to get the next book in this series.Definitely recommend.
A really fun series to create the perfect vacation atmosphereEven though this series is an older one from mega-talented author and publisher, Summer Prescott, this is my first time reading it… And I'm totally enchanted… I chose to begin reading this series at this particular time in honor of a beloved brother Li friend who is vacationing with his family in Key West. These wonderful lime-themed books set in beautiful Key West – trusting and believing the whole series will be as awesome as t [...]
I loved the Key West setting and all the talking about key lime pie.
This was a fun quick read. I like having a short mystery every now and then. This one fit the bill! I want to try some of the key lime desserts sole at SubLime. They sound delicious!
Summer Prescott's introduction to her series accomplishes . Readers are filled in on the relationship between Marilyn& her college-aged daughter. Business aspects are quickly discussed without too much unnecessary detail while there's clarity on the store's mission & popularity. Fergus is efficiently introduced as is new baker, Susan. Additional characters are added without clouding the plot. I love a good mother-daughter team & these two are no exception.For a short novel in true Co [...]
Really a 2 1/2I have thought I missed a few chapters. While I think the author has good ideas and a wonderful way of setting up for the development of the characters that is as far as it got.The story was good and I think if the characters and setting had a little more depth it would have worked.I did get the idea the writer had never cracked open a cookbook or looked at a key lime pie recipe. I also kept thinking I missed a few chapters because there wasn't the usual flow. What I really did lik [...]
This one went by super-fast; so fast I finished it on a single bus ride, I think! The plotline was interesting, but turned on a dime; so quickly that I had to go back and reread several times to make sure I hadn't missed some key part of the storyline. Nevertheless a really fast, very interesting read that I couldn't put down! Looking forward to reading more of Summer Prescott's works to see how they shift over time.
Short but sweet!Marilyn and her daughter Tiara run Marilyn's bakery in Key West, with a howling success in Marilyn's Key Lime pies. Business is booming and they hire a new baker who seems tailor made for the job.Things are going swimmingly when Fergus, one of their regular customers dies after eating at the bakery. The hunt is on for the culprit. This was so short I finished it in 2 days, but I'm not complaining, as it as so well written, I didn't feel shortchanged.
The 1st book in a new series, set in a bakery in Key West, a bakery that specializes in key lime anything. This was a very quick read. A good book if you happen to be distracted, easy to pick back up and not have any trouble rejoining the story.FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
Great first in a new seriesI thought this was a good beginning to a new series. I loved that Marilyn was so devoted to her business and to her daughter. The author has a way of incorporating mystery and suspense into this story.I think there is great potential for a series, I'm looking forward to reading more!

Yummy good funA very enjoyable mysterye characters are fun and the story flows well. Looking forward to reading more in this series. Good stories and Key Lime Pie, what more do you need?
I thought this was much better than others. The characters were so believable that they could be someone know,my only beef with it and it's a one is that I picked the killers out from the get go but had no idea she did it.
