Coming in October 2007 - Murder by the Slice

Murder by the Slice
A Fresh-Baked Mystery
Livia J. Washburn


Retired schoolteacher Phyllis Newsom’s scrumptious baked creations are known throughout Weatherford, Texas, for many things. But being healthy isn’t one of them. So this year’s contest should be quite a challenge—because even though the entries must be low-cal and low-fat, Phyllis will never, ever scrimp on taste…

Everyone knows you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Unfortunately, nobody ever told Shannon Dunston, despotic president of Oliver Loving Elementary’s Parent Teacher Organization. And in planning a fundraising carnival, Phyllis Newsom and her friends wouldn’t mind if Shannon were to go to a much hotter place than Texas…

Even though the carnival fare is heart-healthy this year, it does Shannon’s heart no good—someone has stabbed her through the heart in a school hallway. Distraught, Phyllis learns that the knife that killed Shannon was hers—and that it left traces of incriminating frosting. Now, clearing her name will be no piece of applesauce-and-granola cake…
