Meet Elizabeth Tucker, known to everyone as Lizzie. She has just moved into an old home she inherited from her Aunt Ophelia. Her life revolves around her baking and her goal of creating a cookbook of her special recipes.
Then, out of nowhere, a hunky godlike man named Diesel arrives, on a quest of some kind. Vying for the same prize is his criminal mastermind cousin Gerewulf Grimorie. Rumor has it that a collection of priceless ancient relics representing the Seven Deadly Sins have made their way to Boston’s North Shore.
Partnered with pastry chef Lizzie Tucker, Diesel bullies and charms his way through historic Salem to track them down, while holding “Wulf” at bay. The black-haired, black-hearted Wulf is on the hunt for the relic representing gluttony. Caught in a race against time, Diesel and Lizzie soon find out that more isn’t always better, as they battle Wulf and the first of the deadly sins.
What interesting and charming partners will accompany the duo in their quest? What laugh-out-loud moments will ensue, even as danger surrounds them? And what, finally, will lead them to the ultimate prize?
Wicked Appetite was full of fun and delightful escapades that kept me turning pages. I enjoyed the characters, who felt like regular people, despite the special powers they each possessed. This quirky new book promises to lead us on a rollicking adventure through another series. As much as I enjoyed it, however, I could only award four stars.
