Cozy murder mystery.
When the meanest gossip in Brea Ridge dies mysteriously, suspicions turn to cake decorator Daphne Martin. But all Daphne did was deliver a spice cake with cream cheese frosting - and find Yodel's body. Now Daphne's got to help solve the murder and clear her good name. Problem is, her Virginia hometown is brimming with people who had good reason to kill Yodel, and Daphne's whole family is among them.

I tried to like this book. I forced myself to listen from beginning to end. The storyline was weak. The mystery took second place to family problems that were never solved. I was actually more interested in the family problems than the actual murder. This book also reminded me a little of another series which involves cooking. Only that book established it's characters better. The narrator sounded like Betty White. The lead character is supposed to be 40 yet she sounds like she doubled that at least. More than likely, I won't buy the next book in the series.
Maybe with some other Narrater I could have finished listening. But after one hour I just quit. Without even going to listen to the end.
A better narrator
The narrator made the main character sound 80, not 40, she also made some of the other characters sound like toddlers.
