A hot and spicy taste of murder—and beyond.

Law enforcement consultant Gracie Hofner is assigned to a trendy San Antonio pastry shop to watch for a delivery. In addition to the intoxicating aromas of sugar and chocolate, she also has to fight her own attraction to the man working beside her, Donovan Beck. He’s a hunk and a half and perfect for a spring fling.

If she had more time, Donovan would rank higher on her to-do list. But the number one spot is occupied by her search for a missing little girl, the target of a killer. Gracie needs to find her pronto, and the odd super-instinct quirk that’s started plaguing her may help. If not, she can always see what happens if it tells her to buy a lottery ticket.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

That Gracie! I like the way she thinks and acts. Carol Kilgore has a talent for creating strong female characters who experience every day life as well as a professional life. Gracie is easy to relate believable.


I don’t know what’s more exciting, reading this story or knowing there’s two more Gracie books. The best part, this book stands alone. No cliff hanger ending that has you biting your nails while awaiting the next book. Nope, we can go on with our life, yet we know at some point our friend, Gracie, will come back to visit us. Not once, but two more times.


Carol has done it again with action, mystery and a witty sense of humor. I’m looking forward to Gracie getting herself into and out of trouble again in the next two books. Thank you Carol for the great read.


I like spunky main characters and well-fleshed-out secondary characters. Check. I like unique settings, such as San Antonio, Texas. Check. I like short descriptions that pack a punch. Check. And I like twisty plots and multiple surprises. Check.


Hallelujah! I actually found a detective story that I couldn’t stop reading. From the beginning I loved Gracie, and I loved her more for her no nonsense and get the job done attitude as the story progressed. Well written and fast-paced, this is a quick and delightful read.
