A last-minute delivery turns deadly in the third delectable Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery from national bestselling author Laura Bradford.

The owner of the Emergency Dessert Squad, Winnie Johnson, is starting to have doubts about her baking abilities, but she’ll have to put her worries aside because business is booming. When she receives an order from a woman named Sally Dearfield to make motivational treats for an artists’ retreat, Winnie pulls out all the stops to whip up batches of delicious goodies.

But life isn’t sweet for long. Winnie and her best friend, Renee Ballentine, are out delivering desserts to the artists in their respective cabins when they come across Sally Dearfield’s dead body. The circumstances surrounding her death seem suspicious, and Winnie soon realizes that there could be a killer amongst the artists. She’ll have to rule out a cast of characters before another innocent person falls victim to murder.
