To Have and To Kill

My new character, Piper Donovan, is a struggling actress with no immediate prospects and a recently broken engagement. Reluctantly, she moves back in with her parents to take stock of her life. Piper steps tentatively into the family bakery business, and finds herself agreeing to create the wedding cake for the acclaimed star of a daytime television drama. But soon deadly things start happening around the bride-to-be and it seems that somebody is ruthlessly determined to stop the wedding.

With the help of her former neighbor, Jack, a handsome FBI agent with a soft spot for the gorgeous cake-maker, Piper moves closer to the truth. As she narrows in on a suspect, Piper realizes that it's hotter in the kitchen than she may be able to handle...

"(Clark is) a literary magician."

Associated Press

"Clark launches her Wedding Cake Mysteries series with a bang."

RT Review

"The first book in best-selling suspense author Clark's new series is an old-fashioned whodunit set in a modern world that's high on suspense and low on gore. The number of characters with motive for murder keeps you guessing, and the action-packed short chapters keep the story moving."

Library Journal

"A promising new cozy series from bestseller Clark"

Publishers Weekly 09/27/2010

"Clark launches her Wedding Cake Mysteries series with a bang. Her heroine is young, bright, talented and forthright, with a more than a touch of curiosity and courage. It makes for a fun, fast read with characters that will make readers smile."

Four ½ out of Five Stars, Romantic Times

"The first book in best-selling suspense author Clark’s (Dying for Mercy; Lights Out Tonight) new series is an old-fashioned whodunit set in a modern world that's high on suspense and low on gore. The number of characters with motive for murder keeps you guessing, and the action-packed short chapters keep the story moving. You’ll also learn a little about cake decorating, and there’s a sweet surprise at the end."
