Review: DOOMED BY DESSERT by CeCe Osgood

Abby Little has always wanted to be normal, to fit in. But it all changed when she turned 35…

Now a grown woman with a teenage daughter, Abby loses her boyfriend and her father’s pastry show in one flaming night. How could her ex forget to mail in the insurance payment? Left with no income, Abby was at a loss and full of anger, so she goes to confront that old boyfriend only to find him dead on the kitchen table. The worst part was that the cops think she had something to do with it because one of her pastry boxes was found near the body. In order to prove her innocence, she must find the killer. On top of it all, a strange sense is coming over. But what was it? And how did her daughter know about the fire that night? How could she smell the smoke? This then prompts Abby to realize that she had a similar experience as a child. What was going on here?

One would obviously come to the conclusion that both Abby and her daughter come from a long line of witches. I mean, there’s a witch on the cover for god sakes. But it just seems to take a long time before the book proclaims them as witches (if it ever does that is.) Although quirky at times, story was pretty slow. Not really quite what I expected.

An ok mystery.

My rating: 3 stars
