Rita Lucero will find a hidden necklace that was located in the bakery thanks to a new employee. She will be delighted with the find but as she learns more about the necklace Rita wonders if it is indeed cursed.
The Cakes of Monte Cristo is the sixth book to the series A Piece of Cake Mystery by Jacklyn Brady. I really liked this book, I got into the story right away. The mystery of the ruby necklace intrigued me. You wondered what family it truly belonged to and why was it hidden.
Rita is still stressed and jumping to conclusions but she seems a little less stressed. Though she is as curious as ever and stubborn as she does not believe everyone’s warning about the necklace. To be honest I don’t know if I would believe but I would be wary. I was happy that Miss Frankie wasn’t so overbearing with things she was having Rita complete. It seemed their relationship was back on track. Rita is still wondering about Ox and his resentment. It really seems that he doesn’t have any but Ox is not what you call a people person.
If this series is finished then I am happy for the most part, but there was no conclusion on to who Rita will be with and that bugs me. Jacklyn Brady is leaving it open. Although maybe this isn’t the end, if it isn’t I think I would be willing to continue reading it.
