    Told in multiple viewpoints, A Tangle of Knots is a magnificent puzzle. In a slightly magical world where everyone has a Talent, eleven-year-old Cady is an orphan with a phenomenal Talent for cake baking. But little does she know that fate has set her on a journey from the moment she was born. And her destiny leads her to a mysterious address that houses a lost luggage emporium, an old recipe, a family of children searching for their own Talents, and a Talent Thief who will alter her life forever. However, these encounters hold the key to Cady's past and how she became an orphan. If she's lucky, fate may reunite her with her long-lost parent.

    Lisa Graff adds a pinch of magic to a sharply crafted plot to create a novel that will have readers wondering about fate and the way we're all connected.

    In a nutshell: Magic, mystery, and… CAKE! A Tangle of Knots is set in a world that seems like the one we live in with one exception; each person harbors a special Talent, an activity or ability that is far superior in one way or another. Cady is an eleven-year-old orphan who has a Talent for baking prize-winning cakes that perfectly match the person the cake is baked for. She has been living at Miss Mallory’s orphanage since she was a baby, watching other orphans come and go. Miss Mallory has a Talent for placing children in homes, but has never seemed to find one for Cady. After a brief turn of events, Cady is placed temporarily with an odd man named Toby who lives in an upstairs bedroom of the town’s Lost Luggage Emporium. There she meets a crew of misfit characters who’s fates have seemed to cross paths and will reveal the mystery of Cady’s history.

A Tangle of Knots, 2012 winter book review ..

Cady's gone an exceptionally long time without being adopted. Miss Mallory knows exactly who the perfect parents for her charges are, so the process is often quite quick. Then the perfect father walks into her life. A TANGLE OF KNOTS is told from many points of view and at first I disliked how short each chapter was. I felt like I would get a sense of the new narrator then be whisked away. Then I got into the rhythm of the story and liked how it alternated, every section slotting perfectly into place.
