Cake, not murder. Cake hardly ever gets you killed...
Tabitha can quit solving murder mysteries any time she likes - and right now, she's far more interested in her catering job for Queen Beattie's high tea. Beatrice Wilde is a famous and beloved romance novelist, who nurtures new writers with tea, sympathy and career advice. She's also obnoxious, demanding, and a hot contender for 'Client Most Likely To Be Murdered By Cake Fork.'
Queen Beattie's high tea sets off a murderous chain of events involving poison, blackmail, revenge ... and a special blend of mayhem. Once again, Tabitha is right in the centre of the chaos, and the only way out is to solve the crime - even if that means losing one of the very confusing and attractive men in her life.
Six romance writers
Four poison pen letters
Three stolen manuscripts
Two undercover journalists
One over-complicated love life
Way too many teacups and tiny sandwiches...
