Description

Dead as a . . . dentist?

They say sugar is bad for your teeth, but can it actually kill you? The Brea Ridge police seem to think so when they find cake decorator Daphne Martin wielding an oversized plastic toothbrush over a dentist’s dead body. Daphne moved back to her small Virginia hometown just months ago to open her Daphne’s Delectable Cakes business and already she’s been mixed up in murder. Now she’s got to prove her sweet innocence again.

After hours of police questioning, Daphne returns home to find Elvis Presley in her driveway. She’s certain she’s hallucinating until the leather-clad hunk orders up a pink Cadillac cake for a convention of the Elvis impersonators. Daphne accepts, but her reporter-boyfriend Ben is suspicious of Elvis’s intentions. Does the King want to make Daphne his confectionery queen? Or is the convention a ruse for a more sinister operation? Daphne’s own investigation into Dr. Bainsworth’s murder, meanwhile, reveals the dentist made as many enemies as he did fillings. Just about anyone could have done him in, but it’s up to Daphne to find the killer—and finish Elvis’s cake—before she’s the one singing “Jailhouse Rock.”

Publishers Weekly Review

29 August 2011 – At the start of Trent’s entertaining third Daphne Martin cake cozy (after 2009’s Dead Pan), baker Daphne and her friend, Myra Jenkins, make an emergency visit to the dentist in Brea Ridge, Va., where they discover Dr. Jim Bainsworth dead on the exam room floor. Hearing a noise, they arm themselves with a giant model tooth and toothbrush, useless weapons but enough to persuade the arriving police that they’re guilty of something. After hours being grilled like perps, the two are released, but the surprises aren’t over. Just as Daphne is unlocking her front door, she’s accosted by an Elvis impersonator who wants to order a pink Cadillac cake for the Elvis Impersonators’ Evangelical Interdenominational Outreach convention, but before Daphne starts on the cake, she and Myra need to find a killer. A little jealousy from boyfriend Ben Jacobs and some smalltown gossip add to the mix for a tasty read, despite a few minor plot holes.
