Killer wedding cake
by Gayle Trent
This was a super fast read for me. The author gave me so many fun characters to love.
Laura’s Ramblins and Review
Daphne Martin’s wedding to Ben Jacobs is only a couple of weeks away. An award-winning cake decorator, Daphne is busy designing their wedding cake. Her twin nephew and niece, Lucas and Leslie, are excited about being in the wedding party. And Daphne’s brother-in-law Jason is planning a bachelor party for Ben. Everything is going beautifully until Daphne’s ex-husband Todd shows up. Just released from prison after serving a sentence based on his shooting a gun at Daphne, Todd comes to Brea Ridge to profess his undying love for her.
Despite Daphne’s attempts to make Todd leave town, he insists on hanging around to reconnect with people he used to know. When he’s found murdered, Daphne finds herself at the center of the investigation. Now she must track down Todd’s killer before she becomes the next victim. Can she still make it to the church on time?
My thoughts-Killer Wedding Cake is the fifth book in the Daphne Martin Cake Decorating Mystery series by author Gayle Trent. I have read the first and second in this series and skipped to this one but each book you can read as a stand alone.
Todd returns after being released from prison but waits a bit to come around to see her.This puts a kink in her wedding plans with Ben. When Todd is found dead in his hotel room things start to unravel. Who would want him dead? Will they want her next?
A great read. I adore this series and need to go back and get the ones I have missed.
