Rest, Relax, Run for Your Life is book one in the Ooey Gooey Bakery Mystery series and this was an enjoyable, fun read. Piper and her best friend Sam run the Ooey Gooey Bakery (how awesome is that that name by the way?) and have discovered they are the winners of a charity contest raising the most money for human trafficking awareness and prevention, and they find out they have won a long weekend stay at the O Heavenly Day Spa.
The mystery in the book was just that, a mystery. During their stay at the spa Piper starts to get threatening notes, she gets ‘accidentally’ locked in the steam room, and then kidnapped! Usually you have a murder in these types of books, so the plot line that the author went down was a great refreshing read. It held my attention and I had no idea who the culprit of the notes were or even why until the end, usually that would bug me but this story flowed well that you just had to keep reading to find out the ‘why’ of this mystery.
This is a wonderful clean cozy mystery that includes mystery, romance, humour and characters you can connect to, and I look forward to reading more form out baking duo Piper and Sam.
