Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, the ultra-luxurious Elysium spa and plastic surgery center caters to the rich and famous who are in need of “refreshing”—a nip here, a tuck there, a little Botox, a little detox. When Jillian Abernathy, Elysium’s owner, offers actress and professional cake artist Piper Donovan an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to create a dazzling and unique wedding cake, Piper eagerly accepts. The job, after all, will give her the time and distance she needs to sort out her feelings for handsome FBI agent Jack Lombardi.

At Elysium, everything seems picture-perfect—until a guest is brutally murdered in one of the private bungalows. Someone, it seems, wants to make sure the spa’s beautiful director never gets to walk down the aisle. Piper must dig beneath the glamorous surface of this idyllic oasis to uncover a very ugly truth—and a cold-blooded plan for murder.

    " Once again, Piper Donovan, actress and cake baker, is chosen to prepare a wedding cake for an ill fated bride. Jillian is beautiful, engaged to a handsome doctor, and running her father's spa with great efficiency. But she has many enemies, and one has already made an attempt on her life. Piper's family in New Jersey (and her would-be beau, FBI agent Jack, in New York) are reluctant to let her go to California to bake the cake, but the warm weather and possible acting jobs beckon, and soon Piper is deeply enmeshed in the problems surrounding the wedding. Many short chapters from different points of view make this a fast, though choppy, read, but the characters didn't come alive for me. "

    " This book was good, but not my favorite. Really engaging. I love how she does what Mary Higgins Clark does with the different chapters. Amazing writing and style. I didn't really like the guy from the spa...but I guess we don't really like all characters in any book, now do we? "

    " I liked the first Piper Donovan book, but I liked this one even more! Short chapters for each character's point-of-view, a good, fast-paced mystery, and kept me guessing! I love books that give you lots of suspects but don't give the "who" away so easily. I will continue reading this series! "
