LitFuse Blog Tour: The Baker's Wife by Erin Healy

About the book:
To save her husband and son, Audrey Bofinger must rescue her enemy.

The Bofinger family has lost their church ministry in a scandal exposed by Officer Jack Mansfield. Hoping to heal and to restore their reputation, Audrey, Geoff, and their son Ed take over a failing bakery in the small community.

Driving to the bakery one morning, blinded by fog, Audrey hits a motor scooter owned by Jack’s wife, Julie. The mangled scooter is crushed and bloody. But Julie is nowhere to be found. Her disappearance coincides with a sudden illness that nearly cripples Audrey.

Jack believes the Bofingers have hurt Julie to take revenge on him, but the evidence dries up and her trail goes cold. At a breaking point, Jack takes the tiny bakery and its patrons hostage, issuing only one demand: Audrey has six hours to return Julie to him, or lose Geoff and Ed forever.

With only an excruciating and intuitive gift, an ex-con, and Julie’s estranged daughter to help search for clues, Audrey starts the search of her life for a woman who has vanished like the fog.

My Thoughts and Review:
First off I have a confession: I "Mystery" is not a Genre of books that I have ever read. I just had no interest in them and the fact that I "scare" easily, kept me from reading Mystery Genre. Well, I will be adding Mystery to my list of Genre I like to read after reading Erin Healy's book The Baker's Wife!!

I was soo "into" this book that I couldn't put it down, I read it in about 5hrs. I am a person who likes to be "in the know" so once I started reading and there was a "mystery" to solve, I just had to keep reading. Erin Healy makes it easy to keep reading because she makes the characters so real and lifelike that my emotions were of "oh wow, I have to find out that everything is OK". I throughly enjoyed this book as it had many twists and turns and keep me engaged in the story line like it was being acting out right in front of me. I highly suggest everyone reads this book, even if Mystery is not a Genre you normally read!
