The Battered Body
Book Five in the harrowing and heartwarming Supper Club Mystery series by New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams!
“Sprinkled with delightful characters and topped off with a dash of suspense.” —Romantic Times Book Reviews More
Librarian James Henry and the supper club will have more than enough food for thought trying to count calories and catch a killer . . .
Reluctantly visiting humble Quincy’s Gap to create a special wedding cake, celebrity chef the “Diva of Dough” is not nearly as sweet as her delectable confections, and it’s just a matter of time before she alienates everyone she meets. When her corpse is discovered, covered in cake batter no less, there are more than a few locals who think she got her just desserts. And despite their own distaste for the woman, James and his friends know they have to rise to the occasion and solve the murder.
With clues and suspects few and far between, the supper club members realize that catching the culprit will be anything but a cake walk. And when a second victim turns up dead, they’ll have to quickly discard any half-baked notions about the killer . . . before they all get iced.
Includes mouthwatering recipes!
This is a brand-new, fully revised edition of a book originally published under the name J. B. Stanley.
