#Review: Killer Sweet Tooth by Gayle Trent @GayleTrent #Mystery
Killer Sweet Tooth is perfectly titled. But does a sweet actually kill the dentist or did something more human kill the dentist. After reading the description I quickly looked at the cover again and wondered why I did not see a dead body with two females holding a large toothbrush on the cover. After I finished reading I thought the cover was perfect.
Daphne and neighbor Myra become more than sleuths they become suspects after being found over a body with a giant toothbrush. When Daphne arrives back home the next morning she is greeted by an Elvis impersonator. Could this Elvis be the killer or is someone else the criminal.
While reading this book I kept thinking about my cousin who is a huge Elvis fan.
This story and plot will keep you laughing and guessing from cover to cover. The bunnies and I recommend this book to any who enjoy cozy mysteries.
The bunnies and I give this book carrots.
Disclosure: This book was borrowed from the public library.
They say sugar is bad for your teeth, but can it actually kill you? The Brea Ridge police seem to think so when they find cake decorator Daphne Martin wielding an over-sized plastic toothbrush over a dentist’s dead body. Daphne moved back to her small Virginia hometown just months ago to open her Daphne’s Delectable Cakes business and already she’s been mixed up in murder. Now she’s got to prove her sweet innocence again.
After hours of police questioning, Daphne returns home to find Elvis Presley in her driveway. She’s certain she’s hallucinating until the leather-clad hunk orders up a pink Cadillac cake for a convention of the Elvis impersonators. Daphne accepts, but her reporter-boyfriend Ben is suspicious of Elvis’s intentions. Does the King want to make Daphne his confectionery queen? Or is the convention a ruse for a more sinister operation? Daphne’s own investigation into Dr. Bainsworth’s murder, meanwhile, reveals the dentist made as many enemies as he did fillings. Just about anyone could have done him in, but it’s up to Daphne to find the killer—and finish Elvis’s cake—before she’s the one singing “Jailhouse Rock.”
