A frosting-covered corpse. A secret-keeping fiancé. Can a former rodeo star solve the mystery before the killer rides off into the sunset?
Emily Bernal feels like she's finally living her happily-ever-after. Weeks away from marrying her sexy boss and adopting the little girl who stole her heart, she thought nothing could break her stride. At least until a dead-man face-plants into an anatomically correct novelty cake and Emily's friend is charged with murder.
As she follows the crumb trail of clues, Emily must infiltrate a venomous cult and clash with her one and only nemesis. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more her fiancé pushes her away. Emily wonders if the man of her dreams is holding back something far more sinister than three little words...
Against an onslaught of dark secrets and deadly schemes, Emily must go it alone to discover her fiancé's secret and clear her friend's name before it's too late.

I just finished reading the Emily series. It started with the free Heavens to Betsy, but then I was not ready let go of this author! I laughed, I cried, I giggled all while ferociously turning the pages to see what was happening next in the story. I immediately bought the next book, Earth to Emily, and continued my indulgences while ignoring everything else I should have been doing! The story line was intriguing, but my admiration for this author's skills rose after purchasing and finishing Hell to Pay and reflecting upon how interwoven the plot line is through out each and all three books. Cudos to the author for an ending that wrapped up any and all loose ends without rushing to a finish. I stressed buying the next two books in the series because I only read free books. And, this is my first review ever.
Really enjoyed this book (and series). Couldn't put it down unless forced by my spouse (or a really exciting football game.)
An awesome read!!!!!
I have now read every book in this series and absolutely loved evrry one of them. Cant recommend highly enough. Ms Hutchies is now in the top ten of my favorite authors. CB
Loved the book. Characters from previous book come back. There are so many surprises in this book and expect the unexpected. Keep in mind don't judge someone because one day you may be in the same position.
