The third “entertaining…and tasty read” (Entertainment Weekly) in the Daphne Martin Cake mystery series.


Life is sweet for Daphne Martin right now, from her flourishing cake-decorating business to a rekindled romance with her high school boyfriend, Ben. All that’s about to change, courtesy of famously foul-mouthed celebrity chef Jordan Richards. The TV star has come to Brea Ridge, Virginia, for the town’s lavish cake competition, but he won’t be leaving under his own steam. After his first master class, Jordan is found bludgeoned with a cake stand and drowned in some very bitter batter.

Plenty of townsfolk think the curmudgeonly confectioner had it coming, but the half-baked evidence points to Daphne as a prime suspect. With Ben mulling a new job offer—in Kentucky—Daphne is faced with a multilayered dilemma. She needs to somehow keep her boyfriend, win the cake competition, and sift out the real culprit...before the killer serves up another victim.

Arrived safely in NJ. This author is new-to-me, so I am looking forward to reading it. I am also looking forward to sharing it with the BCer who introduced me to the cozy mystery.

Another fun cozy mystery that I have enjoyed. I like the main character and the mystery was laid out nicely. I kept wanting to find out what happened next.

This is heading to a BC friend who also enjoys a cozy mystery.
Happy Reading and Happy BookCrossing!

This was a fun cozy mystery! I have only read one other book by this author before. I love the main character and the fact I couldn't figure it out before the end was fun.
