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.
