A Wedding Cake Mystery

March 11th, 2011

To Have and To Kill by Mary Jane Clark

From an early age, Nancy Drew heightened our expectations of what an amateur sleuth should look like. Now, as adults who still love a good mystery, finding a heroine who is young, attractive, sharp and relatable has been few and far between. Since If Looks Could Kill, no sleuth has been quite as enjoyable as Kate White’s Bailey Weggins. Until now…Weggins has met her match with Piper Donovan in Mary Jane Clark’s debut novel of the Wedding Cake Mysteries with the perfect mix of fluffy fiction, enthralling mystery and fervent page turning. The characters are well developed, the story is well written and the plot keeps you guessing until the end.

Piper Donovan never imagined that decorating wedding cakes could be so dangerous! A struggling actress with no immediate prospects and a recently broken engagement, Piper moves back in with her parents to take stock of her life. She steps tentatively into the family bakery business and finds herself agreeing to create a wedding cake for the acclaimed star of a daytime television drama. But soon someone close to the bride-to-be is horribly murdered and it seems that somebody is ruthlessly determined to stop the wedding.

With the help of her former neighbor, Jack, a handsome FBI agent with a soft spot for the gorgeous cake-maker, Piper moves closer to the truth. As she narrows in on a suspect, Piper realizes that it’s hotter in the kitchen than she may be able to handle. . . .

Tocca Candles

The Tiare flower is as beautiful a symbol of the island of Tahiti as its native people. Its pure essence combined with the sweetness of coconut pays homage to the sensual tranquility of this most alluring of islands.
