Simone LaFray is a spy whose father owns a marvelous bakery in France. Simone is given the assignment of catching a thief in Paris who attempts to get revenge on her mother by stealing a famous painting. Simone runs into trouble while she is searching for the thief. In the meantime, someone steals the family's cookbooks, puts salt in their sugar, and frames her father right before the Chocolatiers' Ball - the most important ball of the year for pastry chefs. Will she catch the thief? Recover the family cookbooks? Save her dad from failing at the ball? Find out by reading Simone LaFray and the Chocolatiers' Ball.
The beginning of this story was a little confusing, but after some explanations, it was easy to read. The best thing about this book were the details. I could really jump into Simone's character and the plot. I can't wait to read more books by S.P. O'Farrell. I highly recommend Simone LaFray and Chocolatier's Ball for readers nine and older.
