Book review of The Sourdough Wars (Rebecca Schwartz Mystery #2) by Julie Smith

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished (five stars)

If Rebecca Schwartz and her friends had just kept their mouths shut, several dead people might now be alive. Okay, we are talking about fictional dead people. But—no—they had to suggest auctioning the secret recipe and one thing led to another.

I enjoyed the book. It was clever and entertaining with a lovely turn of phrase here and there.

One thing that particularly appealed to me was that the premise was normal-sized instead of involving global master criminals who deliberately provoke the FBI because they are so smart. No, this book involved day to day jealousies and ambitions that might really happen.
