 Rating: Five Stars
 Reviewed by: Tina

 Have you been dumped? Have a broken heart?Fired from your job? Going through menopause? Then it's a case for Winnie Johnson's Emergency Dessert Squad. Her dessert menu will cater to your every life disaster and center around emergency life situations that need the comfort of a yummy and sweet dessert that Winnie bakes and delivers to you in her vintage Emergency Dessert Squad ambulance that she inherited from a friend that passed away after she lost her bakery.

 Winnie also inherited Lovey,a brown and white tabby cat that loves to hate Winnie but loves to ride along in the ambulance on deliveries. Since childhood Winnie has found solace in friendships with the elderly and finds she relates to them more than people her age. Her friend Bart, the one she inherited the vintage ambulance from, Winnie finds murdered, suffocated with a pillow over his head.

Bart was a nice man but had a temper and with his step-son putting up his home for sale before he is even in the ground and a pageant mom who has a score to settle after her daughter is hurt on his property after trampling on his flower bed. With a potential new romance in a new customer, Jay Morgan and Bart's Valuable coin going missing there's a new reason to want Bart dead and Winnie wants to find justice for her friend Bart and sets out to find her friend, Bart's killer when Winnie finds herself in danger it's her true friends that save her in the end.

 Such a unique foodie concept for a new cozy mystery series. Clever dessert names and heartwarming characters made this a new and exciting first book of a new series. Winnie was such a relatable character. I totally understood her reasons for what friends she chose in her life and her love for baking and the recipes will be added to my collection. Eclair and Present Danger and this series are going to be a new favorite among cozy mystery fans, myself included.
