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?

Review of Killer Wedding Cake

Review (4.5 Stars): I was hooked on this mystery from the very beginning and couldn’t wait to find out who the killer was right along with Daphne. Killer Wedding Cake was a fun, suspenseful thrill-ride that kept me at the edge of my seat.  I have loved Daphne since the first book, Murder Takes The Cake, and was so excited to see that she was finally getting her happy ending with Ben until her ex-husband shows up back in town.

Daphne has grown so much over the course of this series and I was glad that her ex-husband got killed off so that way she could focus on her future instead of always worrying about the past that she left behind.  This is a great series and Daphne is such a delightful character that you will enjoy spending time with.  Can’t wait to read more from Ms. Trent in the future.


I’m excited to give away a e-copy of Killer Wedding Cake. This giveaway is for US Residents only.  To be entered in the drawing by August 15th, please leave me a comment below:
