Sparks flew from the moment they met.
Beryl Madison answers her summons to teacher Terry Goodson's second-grade classroom to defend her nephew's "odd behavior" like an avenging angel. It seems poor little Duncan "is having some type of fantasy ideation"--he's been telling some of his classmates that his aunt is a superhero.
When Beryl shows up in a yellow catsuit with orange flames, a mardi gras mask, and red stiletto boots, Terry thinks he's the one having the fantasy ideation now. Come to find out, Beryl is merely in her work clothes. One of her jobs is playing "The Flame" for a local television station's morning children's show.
The next day Terry goes to the Internal Revenue Service for an audit of his personal income tax return and learns all about Beryl's other job. While auditing the return, Beryl suspects that the attorney who handled Terry's late uncle's estate has swindled several clients.
As they work together to bring justice to those swindled by the seedy attorney, they learn that the spontaneous combustion each sets off in the other is more than a physical attraction. Could this once-in-a-lifetime explosion be the love they both want? Or will they wind up blowing their relationship to smithereens?
The third “entertaining…and tasty read” (Entertainment Weekly) in the Daphne Martin Cake mystery series.
Daphne Martin’s life is pretty sweet right now—she has a loving boyfriend, a popular cake decorating company, and has recently entered into a cake competition in town. But when she attends a class with a famously ornery celebrity chef, all of that threatens to change. The chef is found beaten to death with a cake stand after his first lesson, and he has more enemies than anyone can count. So it’s a shock to Daphne when she immediately comes under police suspicion. And on top of that, her boyfriend tells her he’s considering a career move—to Kentucky. To a company run by an old girlfriend! And, there’s still the cake competition Daphne has to win.
Daphne will need to put her wits to the test again—with the help of her nosy friend Myra—in order to clear her name, win the competition, and salvage her romance.
