The Baker's Wife Book Review

The Baker's Wife by Erin Healy really captivated me from the beginning as the story unfolds and we meet all the characters and learn how their lives intertwine to discover the truth behind a missing woman. Audrey, the baker's wife, sets out on a journey with Dianne, an ex-con, and Mirilee, the daughter of the missing woman, Julie or Juliet as she was known in her youth. They discover more about themselves and their connection to God as Julie relies on her spiritual gifts to find Julie. Meanwhile Jack, Julie's husband and Mirilee's father, have taken Audrey's husband, son, and three other people hostage in their bakery convinced that Audrey had murdered his wife. This is a great mystery story as well as one of self-discovery that I enjoyed reading in one day. Read The Baker's Wife to see if Audrey finds Julie in time or even if she finds her alive. The twists and turns and little connections in the book won't leave you disappointed!

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.
