In My Mailbox 10

This week was a slow week for books for me.  I received two but since I am trying to read from my shelves this is actually a good thing!  The first book I already read and reviewed yesterday:

The second is from Gallery & Pocket Books Blog Tours on Book Blogs for review.  I will be posting a review for it closer to the end of the month.

A routine cake delivery becomes a culinary nightmare when a small-town baker discovers her first client’s dead body in this irresistible new mystery series.

It’ll take more than a little sugar to convince folks Daphne Martin’s freshly baked spice cake was not to blame for the mysterious death of town gossip Yodel Watson. Getting her new cake decorating business, Daphne’s Delectable Cakes, off the ground is hard enough now that Daphne’s moved back to her southern Virginia hometown, but orders have been even slower since she found Yodel’s body. She soon realizes, however, that just about everybody in town had a reason to poison the cantankerous busybody, from the philandering pet shop owner, to Yodel’s church potluck nemesis, to the Save-A-Buck’s cranky produce manager-turned-bagger. Now, to help prove she’s no confectionary killer, Daphne recruits her old flame, Ben Jacobs, editor of the local newspaper, and quickly stirs up a long-hidden family scandal that just might hold the secret ingredient she needs to solve the case. All she’s got to do is roll up her sleeves and get her hands a little dirty before the real culprit decides that taking sweet revenge on Daphne will be icing on the cake.


  1. I love the covers they put on cozy mysteries. They are cute and fun. I should really read more of them.

  2. Murder Takes the Cake looks like a lot of fun. Have a great week.
