A delightful, enchanting whodunit…
In her second installment for the Cupcake Catering Mysteries, Davis throws in the mouth-watering descriptions of food galore, some well-placed red herrings, and a thoroughly intriguing murder mystery to create a delicious whodunit. The family feud between Tillie, and her son and new wife who seem to be trying to take over Tillie’s finances and independence is taking its toll on Emory Martinez who wants nothing to do with the family dispute. But when a swindler’s body is found in Emory’s bathtub with her delicious cake pops stuffed into her mouth, Emory finds herself at the center of another murder investigation. Davis’s intelligent, witty prose is a treat, and she keeps the suspense at a high pitch throughout. Readers will easily fall in love with the scrappy Emory and spunky and mildly unhinged Tillie. Davis’s skill to devise an intricate mystery combined with her balanced mix of food and witty dialogue makes readers keep turning pages nonstop. The spooky Halloween recipes at the end will make readers try to whip some of their own. The aficionados of food-oriented crime will be greatly rewarded.
