Synopsis from Goodreads.com




The second delectable Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery from the national bestselling author of Eclair and Present Danger. Baker Winnie Johnson does her best work when the heat is on. As owner of the Emergency Dessert Squad, she has a deft touch in the kitchen and a soft spot for lost causes. So when her business professor beau, Jay Morgan, expresses misgivings over having to fail one of his fourth-year students, Winnie cooks up a sweet solution. She'll offer an extra credit opportunity in exchange for a little help with her growing business. But when her protege's first dessert delivery poisons a student journalist, the publicity threatens to burn Winnie's business to a crisp. Now the entrepreneur-turned-detective must uncover the ingredients behind a recipe for murder before she crumbles under pressure... RECIPES INCLUDED


My Review

Silence of The Flans has a unique premise any foodie with a insashable sweet tooh won't be able to put down. The dessert ambulance and Winnie, the ameture  sleuth "rescuing" customers with life's problems with delicious desserts she bakes.

There's Winnie's charming elderly friends besides some insufferable characters. A precious love/hate relationship with her cat,Lovey who likes to tag along on Dessert Squad Deliveries. It was a interesting and heartwarming plot and a sweet romance or should I say romances

The Dessert names with the puns were fun and Winnie baking were my favorite parts of the story. Winnie proved to be a very determined character and what I love about most was her fighting for her dream and it came with a very flavourfull and delicious ending.
