About the book:
To save her husband and son, Audrey Bofinger must rescue her enemy.
The Bofinger family has lost their church ministry in a scandal exposed by
Officer Jack Mansfield. Hoping to heal and to restore their reputation, Audrey,
Geoff, and their son Ed take over a failing bakery in the small community.
Driving to the bakery one morning, blinded by fog, Audrey hits a motor scooter
owned by Jack’s wife, Julie. The mangled scooter is crushed and bloody. But
Julie is nowhere to be found. Her disappearance coincides with a sudden illness
that nearly cripples Audrey.
Jack believes the Bofingers have hurt Julie to take revenge on him, but the
evidence dries up and her trail goes cold. At a breaking point, Jack takes the
tiny bakery and its patrons hostage, issuing only one demand: Audrey has six
hours to return Julie to him, or lose Geoff and Ed forever.
With only an excruciating and intuitive gift, an ex-con, and Julie’s estranged
daughter to help search for clues, Audrey starts the search of her life for a
woman who has vanished like the fog.

Book Review: The Baker’s Wife by Erin Healy
When I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down. There was constant action and mystery that totally intrigued me. The characters were unique and caught my interest.
I was amazed at the twists and turns that this book took however, about three-fourths through the book, things started getting weird. The main character, Audrey starting having experiences that seemed like they belonged in a fantasy oriented book instead of a Christian fiction book.
I understand what the author was trying to convey to the reader but it just seemed hokey, and well…weird. Really weird. I had to question if I was reading the same book because it took such a strange turn. As a result, I had trouble finishing the book. It was really disappointing.
I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars only because the first 3/4 of the book was so enjoyable.
