I have reluctantly had to delete all contact details from my profile here because of continual harassment by one person who is pursuing me across the internet with the intention of driving me away from the internet completely. I am no longer accepting review copies of books.

Coffin on Murder Street by Gwendoline Butler
Coffin on Murder Street by Gwendoline Butler
A local coach firm does tours which take it in the sites of murders on Coffin's patch. One day a coach load of people disappear into thin air. But that is only the start of John Coffin's problems.

This is a rather sweet short story about professional cake maker, Kate, who is making her friend's wedding cake. She is hoping that her previous disastrous meeting with Wes, the best man at the wedding isn't going to be repeated this time. This is a feel good short story with added cake - what's not to like?

As well as the short story there is a recipe for a wedding cake which could also be used for a Christmas cake or other special occasion cake. There is also an extract from the author's new novel 'Creature Comforts' to be published in June 2015.
