Book 2.5, Piper Donovan/Wedding Cake Mysteries - A Short Story

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Like a billion people on earth, aspiring actress Piper Donovan is a fervent Facebook follower. But what she doesn't know is that a "friend" is following her. Possibly . . . stalking. A fan who starts by using the same beauty salon eventually comes closer—much closer—in this chilling short story.

Customer Reviews

A story with no real ending

I knew this was a short story when I purchased it. However, it was much shorter than the 100 pages indicated in the description. It also does not have a real ending. The "ending" provided was extremely weak and abrupt.

The Friend

The story itself deserves five stars but it has no real ending. It is a short story that you pay for but just when it gets good it ends and refers you to another book. If it were a free teaser or whomever is in charge of such things told you up front what you were paying for I would not complain at all; however, that is not the case and it is really disappointing. I would not recommend purchasing this. If you are interested in the story track down the book it comes from and just buy the whole thing upfront.
