Also for the first time catering this event and everyone at Zydeco has all hands on deck baking,decorating and cooking and preparing for the event to take place at a local hotel in New Orleans.
After hiring a new temp at Zydeco, Zoey, her and Rita stumble upon a long lost hidden treasure under the stairs at Zydeco Cakes. It's a opulent ruby necklace that has a long and heartbreaking history of love and betrayal and has a supposed curse that if any one is in possession of it bad luck and death will soon follow.
Rita takes the necklace to a appraiser, soon after there's a robbery at the appraisers vintage shop and she drops dead of a sudden heart attack and it is discovered she was scared to death by the robber and it's considered murder. After getting the necklace back from the police after the robbery investigation goes sour Rita becomes a target of someone who wants the necklace really badly. Bad things keep happening to Rita and she soon fears for her life. The cure may be responsible and Rita may be the next to die.
Saying I love this series would be an understatement. And it's only the second book I have read in this series but I do hope to catch up soon. A very engaging and entertaining trip to New Orleans in the A Piece of Cake Mysteries that is just sweet perfection. The Cakes of Monte Cristo kept me guessing and in suspense until the end. The best part was the mystery of the ruby necklace and how it was all connected to certain characters, it was the best part of the story.
