Jacklyn Brady: Cake on a Hot Tin Roof

This is the second outing in the A Piece of Cake mystery series. It was a quick read.  I spent a couple hours in the backyard on a lawn chair with some wine (Jersey Red again, I’m hooked)  and this book and finished it.  Great lead character and I love the theme of a high end bakery.  The setting is still New Orleans, which I would love to visit, and this time it is at Mardi Gras time.  I have never been to Mardi Gras but would like to go and the book  gave a glimpse into the festivities.   There appears to be a love triangle heating up so I want to see how that is  handled as the series develops.

I am really enjoying how the series is unfolding and I will read more as they are written.  The only issue I have with it is a couple of the supporting characters are annoying, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the book as a whole.

Perhaps….but it certainly has not helped me solve my dilemma this evening. Came in from a suckass day at work and cracked open a bottle of Jersey Red. I know, I know, wine….from New Jersey. It should be an oxymoron. But you know what, it was good. Sweet and fruity tasting and combined with the beautiful sunshine in the backyard it was heavenly.

The dilemma that spurred all this was the result of entirely too much estrogen in the work place, nasty passive aggressive bitchery. So to take the high road and ignore it or take the low road (infinitely more fun in the short term) and get even…hmmm. Still thinking, in a rather red wine relaxed kind of way…Let’s think:

Seriously, though…much rather work with men any day of the week.
