“Clark has perfected the suspense novel.”
Booklist

New York Times bestselling author and mystery writer par excellence, Mary Jane Clark kicks off her delicious new Wedding Cake mystery series with To Have and To Kill. A tasty departure from her thrillers featuring KEY News television anchor Eliza Blake (Dying for Mercy, It Only Takes a Moment), To Have and To Kill introduces readers to actress-turned-wedding cake decorator Piper Donovan, who discovers that the heat in the pastry kitchen can be hotter—and deadlier—that she ever imagined…and that her creative new enterprise is anything but a piece of cake. Foodies and fans of cable TV’s Amazing Wedding Cakes, as well as Faye Kellerman, Jayne Anne Krentz, and Diana Mott Davidson readers are going to eat this one up!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Clark launches her Wedding Cake Mysteries series with a bang. Her heroine is young, bright, talented and forthright, with a more than a touch of curiosity and courage. It makes for a fun, fast read with characters that will make readers smile.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

  • “An old-fashioned whodunit set in a modern world that’s high on suspense and low on gore. The number of characters with motive for murder keeps you guessing, and the action-packed short chapters keep the story moving. You’ll also learn a little about cake decorating, and there’s a sweet surprise at the end.”

    Library Journal

  • “The intriguing premise will interest fans of foodie crime.”
