The Coincidence of Coconut Cake
by Amy E. Reichert
One of my favorite parts of this book was at the very beginning, before our two main characters had met. Through their different POVs, we were able to see times when they passed each other on the street or were in the same building as each other, but never met.
The first several chapters focus on exploring Milwaukee’s treasures. And while I’m a native Wisconsinite, I felt a bit like the book had turned into a tour guide. But, while it’s not my cup of tea, I’m sure there are others who will love the attention to detail at our Wisconsin-y ways.
I loved that I could see the disaster coming. Time and again, the characters did something that almost revealed their secrets and would put them in a terrible position – and then danced away, leaving me on the edge of my seat wondering when the inevitable was finally going to happen! Very exciting.
