New York Times best-selling author Mary Jane Clark delights listeners with her tasty new mystery To Have and to Kill
Piper Donovan never imagined that decorating wedding cakes could be so dangerous! A struggling actress with no immediate prospects and a recently broken engagement, Piper moves back in with her parents to take stock of her life. She steps tentatively into the family bakery business and finds herself agreeing to create a wedding cake for the acclaimed star of a daytime television drama. But soon someone close to the bride-to-be is horribly murdered, and it seems that that someone is ruthlessly determined to stop the wedding.
With the help of her former neighbor, Jack, a handsome FBI agent with a soft spot for the gorgeous cake-maker, Piper moves closer to the truth. And as she narrows in on a suspect, she realizes that it's hotter in the kitchen than she may be able to handle.

I really wanted to like this book. But, I found it lacking in almost every area. The character and story line were good but not developed enough. The characters were flat and uninteresting. The chapters were 2-3 pages long. I think the short chapters were an attempt to create suspense, but it made the book seem disjointed and disorganized. It was not a good reading experience. I gave it two stars because I liked the idea of the story. It had so much potential.
