    Charming Della TAKES THE CAKE, as she turns this amateur sleuth into an engaging realistic whodunit.

    Death Takes the Cake<BR/>Melinda Wells<BR/>Berkley, Feb 2009, $7.99<BR/>ISBN: 9780425226421<BR/><BR/>Mickey Jordan, owner of the Better Living Cable Channel, informs cooking show hostess Della Carmichael that she will participate in a reality baking competition. The owner of the sponsor Reggi-Mixx Cake Company Regina ¿Reggie¿ Davis believes the contest will be good for her ailing firm while a weary Della receives free publicity for her show. Della ignores her gut concerns that back in college she turned in Reggie as a thief to authorities and the woman was unable to gain vengeance back then but still holds a grudge.<BR/><BR/>Della¿s fears about the competition prove valid when she arrives at the cooking site at night to find a corpse drowned in cake batter; the victim is Reggie. T.J. Taggett, a private investigator hired by Reggie to make inquires into the lives of Della, her boss and his wife is later killed and Della thinks it is by the same person. The police focus on Bill, the husband of Della¿s best friend Lidy; he was seen with her several times and she had his prized pen in her purse. Della investigates and quickly learns many people had a motive to kill Reggie including her boss and his wife.<BR/><BR/>Although the evidence against Bill seems on the surface flimsy, which would make Della¿s motive to probe the homicide even flimsier, fans will enjoy the heroine¿s investigation which surprisingly comes across as plausible as what motivates her to sleuth could happen to others. Whereas the victim is not sympathetic at all, the accused is very much so; leading the audience to root for Della to prove his innocence as the police do not seem to be looking elsewhere though they should. Charming Della TAKES THE CAKE, as she turns this amateur sleuth into an engaging realistic whodunit.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Good read, very good recipes

    I think I may have another favorite series! Della Charmichael is a very likable character, and the recipes provided are quite good(I bake for a living). The storyline is very entertaining, and it's wonderful to see a 40-something woman shown as an attractive, vibrant person who enjoys her life. I hope Ms. Wells continues to write more in this series, as I'm dying to see where she takes Della's life, both personally and professionally

    Just as good as the first

    I have found I love the Della Series. This is as good as the first, and I am now on #3. Also as good as 1 and 2.

    Author is attaining a new style of writing and will definitely improve with more experience in this series.

    My shelves are full with mild mysteries exactly like this one. It sometimes bogged down in minute details. I also felt this woman was handling a WHOLE lot of things going on in her life at one small amount of time.
    I looked back at my markings for this title and found that I did give it my rating to look for the next book and see how the author develops the series. Therefore I would definitly read the next few to come out.

    Good Read

    This was a light easy read with characters that were people that you could actually picture in your head just what they were capable of. I enjoyed the book because it took me away from the stress of the real world. Gotta read!
