My Thoughts:

This book follows Daphne Martin as she is getting ready to get married to Ben Jacob's right now her biggest decision is the type of cake she wants at her wedding.  As Daphne set's about making brownies and cookies she realizes her oven has died and has to borrow her neighbor's when she goes home she realizes her ex is at her house and is trying to win her back, even though she put him in jail for trying to kill her.

It doesn't take long for her ex to wind up dead and she is connected to his death but the how and why is she being dragged into this is enough to make you wonder what is up?  Did Daphne kill him?  And if she didn't who did?  What motive did they have to kill Todd?

This book was fast moving and definitely kept you on your feet trying to figure who killed the evil ex known as Todd?  And why he came back for Daphne?
