For the second time in as many months, I found myself telling a police officer, "I just brought the cake." So begins Daphne Martin's new crime-solving challenge in DEAD PAN, another cozy, cake-decorating mystery from the author of last year's much-praised MURDER TAKES THE CAKE. "If you like Diane Mott Davidson or Joanna Fluke, you will be enthralled," said one reviewer of the Daphne Martin Cake-Decorating Mysteries. Now author Gayle Trent treats readers to another tasty slice of culinary mystery, as her cake-decorating sleuth, the intrepid Daphne Martin, of tiny Brea Ridge, Virginia, once again finds herself and her cakes accused of a crime. This time it's the suspicious death of a local man who fell sick after eating a piece of Daphne's cakes at a party. Gayle Trent is hard at work on book three in the series, KILLER SWEET TOOTH, coming in 2010. Trent also writes mysteries for NAL, New York, under the pen name Amanda Lee. Visit Gayle at and
