Murder Takes the Cake, the first book in the Daphne Martin Cake Decorating Mystery Series, is on sale in Kindle form for only $1.99 for the month of August. So you still have two days! If you've been meaning to check out the series, or if you've read other books in the series, and would like to go back and read the first, now is the time to do it.
If you aren't familiar with the book, it begins with the death of Daphne's first official client. When the meanest gossip in Brea Ridge, Yodel Watson, dies mysteriously, suspicions turn to recently returned Virginia native and cake decorator Daphne Martin. But all she did was deliver a spice cake with cream cheese frosting–and discover Yodel’s dead body. Now, Daphne must get her hands dirty to help solve the murder and clear her good name before things get any worse. But the small town is brimming with people who had good reason to kill Yodel–and Daphne’s entire family is among them.
I don't know why Amazon decided to feature Murder Takes the Cake for their August promotion, but I'm really glad they did. The promotion is just in time to help bring readers' attention to Daphne's upcoming adventure, Battered to Death, coming September 24. :)
