    Pastry chef Rita Lucero is still learning the ropes at Zydeco Ca

    Pastry chef Rita Lucero is still learning the ropes at Zydeco Cakes, the bakery she inherited from her ex-husband. Her second in command is trying to give the bakery an online presence and hounding Rita every day to start a blog. Add that to it's carnival season in New Orleans and they are filling tons of orders for King cakes and Rita is expected to host a Mardi Gras party for hundreds of her ex's closet friends. Then as if she doesn't have enough to do she gets an unexpected visit from her aunt Yolanda and Uncle Nestor. How in the world is she going to get everything done and entertain then too?

    Well at least she can take them to the Mardi Gras party. A great idea until Big Daddy Boudreaux, a local celebrity/car salesman, winds up dead at the party after having a very public altercation with Uncle Nestor. Now Rita needs to add "find the real killer" to her already overflowing To-Do-List. And there are no shortage of other suspects. Let the good times roll!


    Chaos reigned in this installment of the Piece of Cake Mysteries. I was exhausted just trying to keep up with Rita. Plus she kept her temper better than I ever would if relatives just dropped in at the busiest time of year.

    I was a little disappointed in Uncle Nestor. I knew he was upset about Rita staying in New Orleans but he should have been more supportive of her role at Zydeco cakes. Proud that she was running a successful business. He did have a lot on his mind and by the end of the story I had started to forgive him just a bit.

    I must say the vast number of suspects made this mystery very complex. Each time I thought I had figured it out I was wrong.

    Another tasty treat from Jacklyn Brady.
