My summary: This time Sadie follows her crush (Eric) to Florida as he searches for his missing daughter. While Eric hunts the truth, Sadie hopes to unravel the secrets of her heart and Eric.
My say & recommendation: While I savored English Trifle, I labored through Key Lime Pie. What could possibly be the difference you ask? While English Trifle was very much a murder mystery, Key Lime Pie felt more like chick lit with a dash of intrigue. I often found myself wishing Sadie would stop worrying about her heart and start working the case. For that reason, the story felt slow to me. However, while this failed to entice my mystery loving palette, I do think it's perfect for fans of contemporary women's literature and/or chick lit.
My whodunit verdict: The ending and mystery was tart, creative, and I did not see it coming.
My star rating: 2 stars

My final say: Have you ever had chocolate dipped key lime pie? It is divine!
