Gayle Trent -part 2

Today, you will learn more about Gayle's book. Here is her Press Release information:


• In Gayle Trent’s latest mystery Murder Takes the Cake (ISBN: 978-0-9802453-6-3, available October 1, 2008), when the meanest gossip in Brea Ridge dies mysteriously, suspicions turn to cake decorator Daphne Martin. But all Daphne did was deliver a spice cake with cream cheese frosting--and find Yodel's body. Now Daphne's got to help solve the murder and clear her good name. Problem is, her Virginia hometown is brimming with people who had good reason to kill Yodel, and Daphne's whole family is among them.

• Murder Takes The Cake tells the story of Daphne Martin, a forty-year-old divorcee who returns to her fictional hometown of Brea Ridge, Virginia to start her life over. She has left behind an ex-husband who is in prison for an attempt on Daphne's life, a dingy apartment and a stale career. She has started fresh in a new home with a new career, Daphne's Delectable Cakes, a cake-decorating company Daphne runs out of her home. She is thrilled to be living closer to her beloved niece and nephew, although being close to other family members brings up lifelong resentments and more than a couple complications. Daphne is also reunited with childhood friend, Ben Jacobs, a full-fledged HAG (hot, available guy). Then Daphne finds her first client dead.

• "Gayle whips up a sweetly satisfying mystery that'll have you licking your lips for more!" – Christine Verstraete, Searching for A Starry Night, A Miniature Art Mystery

• “Murder Takes The Cake has all the right ingredients for a delicious read.” – Ellen Crosby, The Bordeaux Betrayal

Best wishes for your success. Lesson Learned: Never trust a woman dropping by with spice cake with cream cheese frosting. Me, I just don't trust an of them.

Thank you all for your encouragement! Stephen, I don't know if you're a bachelor or not; but I just got an image of Granny Clampett sending Ellie Mae over to your house with a cake and a jug of "tonic." ;-)
