Once again, it looks like Dani Sloan will get a slice of the action…
In the small town of Normalton, IL, there aren’t a lot of opportunities for small business owner Dani Sloan to cater big-ticket events. But that’s about to change—a client named Yvette Joubert is marrying Franklin Whittaker, the richest guy around, and they want Dani to cater their engagement party! The swanky event is the perfect opportunity to put Dani on the map for wealthier clients.
But when a storm hits the party after guests arrive, it becomes clear that more than the dinner is ruined: Yvette is found dead beneath the marquee. Is her death a tragic accident, or a perfectly orchestrated murder? Then the case gets even juicier—it turns out that Yvette’s ex-husband is Spencer Drake, Dani’s almost-boyfriend, and the police start circling. Now Dani must follow an unending list of clues to save her business, her better half, and catch a criminal. Let’s just hope they get their just desserts!
Winner Cake All by Denise Swanson is the third installment to this wonderful cozy mystery series. I have not read the previous two novels and I was able to follow along as though it were the first book. Denise Swanson’s writing is enjoyable. I love the characters, the scenes, the intrigue, and most of all the humor. There are plenty of twists and surprises to keep readers, like me, hooked. I did not guess the murder. Or why the murder happen until all the facts were displayed for me at the ending. Any murder mystery that can keep my entire attention, engage me, and keep me in the dark is a must have. I do recommend this to all cozy mystery fans. Clean, well-written, and fun-Winner Cake All sure does take the first place for being the best read.
