About 100 fans joined the fun at The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale on 2/22 to celebrate WEDDING CAKE MURDER. The cake – custom designed to match the book cover – was provided by local bakery Honey Moon Sweets. Two fans from the audience were named “Bride and Groom” of the day before doing the honors of cutting the cake.
Hannah is thrilled to be marrying Ross Barton, her college crush. And her excitement only grows when she learns he’ll be able to join her on her trip to New York City for the Food Channel’s dessert chef contest. She’s especially nervous about facing Alain Duquesne, a celebrity chef with a nasty reputation. But before he can tear into Hannah’s layer cake, she finds him stabbed to death on the show’s kitchen set. Out of the oven, as the saying goes, and into the bright lights of Broadway, as Hannah tries to solve a mystery with more layers than a five-tiered wedding cake…
