You may have read her Embroidery Mystery Series that she writes as Amanda Lee not realizing she writes cozies as Gayle Trent too! Her Daphne Martin Cake Mysteries feature cake decorator Daphne Martin.  The newest installment Killer Wedding Cake was published in June. I am so thrilled she is touring it with Great Escapes Book Tours!

Killer Wedding Cake was a fun, suspenseful thrill-ride that kept me at the edge of my seat.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

This fast- paced mystery will have you on the edge of your seat guessing until the end.
~Shelley’s Book Case

The author’s engaging writing style, both as Gayle Trent and in the Embroidery Shop Mysteries as Amanda Lee makes each book a yummy layer to the cake that is its series. (Truth be told here, I read Wicked Stitch multiple times and I can see that happening with Killer Wedding Cake as well.
~Back Porchervations

Trent does a great job of keeping all the parts moving and coming together with unexpected (and sometimes humorous) twists and turns.
~Christa Reads and Writes

I enjoyed the plot and appreciated the interesting characters in the novel.

This book was fast moving and definitely kept you on your feet…

Everything is going beautifully until Daphne’s ex-husband Todd shows up.
