#Review: Dead Pan by Gayle Trent @GayleTrent #Mystery
First let me state I love the title “Dead Pan” it conveys a message that a pan is not just a pan. I don’t feel it was the best title for the book but it does work. However, the story between the pages is something that will leave readers with a satisfying mystery to help solve.
Daphne is up in cakes and murder again. After delivering a cake to an annual holiday party she soon learns that almost everyone is sick and that one person has died. Daphne becomes a suspect and vowels to help the mother of the person who passed find out what happened.
I really enjoyed this book and the mystery involved. The story line was easy to follow but provided just enough information about the criminal to keep readers guessing. There are a lot of extra characters in this book and all have a purpose along with all the extra information. It may seem like the author is trying to overwhelm readers but that is the exact opposite. All of this was needed for a complete and well-rounded story.
The bunnies and I give this book carrots.
Disclosure: This book was borrowed from the public library.
For the second time in as many months, Daphne Martin finds herself telling a police officer, “I just delivered the cake.”
Several people became sick at Brea Ridge Pharmaceuticals’ annual holiday party for its employees, and one–Fred Duncan–died. Fred’s mother insists on Daphne’s help in learning why Fred died; and since none of the food has yet been exonerated, Daphne feels compelled to find out what made everyone so ill. She’s pretty sure it wasn’t her cake, but she can’t be certain until the police complete the lab results. Was this an accident? Or did someone set out to kill Fred?
