Footprints in the Sand: A Piper Donovan Mystery by Mary Jane Clark (book review

Footprints in the Sand: A Piper Donovan Mystery (Wedding Cake Mystery #3) by  Mary Jane Clark

It's the dead of winter and struggling actress and wedding cake decorator Piper Donovan is thrilled to be in warm and romantic Sarasota, Florida, enjoying the powdery white beaches, soothing seas, and golden sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. She and her family are there to celebrate her beloved cousin's wedding. Not only is Piper creating the sugar sand dollar-festooned wedding cake, she's also the maid of honor.

But a cloud seems to hover over the whole affair. Shortly after a bridesmaid mysteriously disappears, a kindly neighbor's car is run off the road and a prospective witness, an innocent Amish teenager, is threatened to keep silent. Then a body is found on the wedding beach. With the nuptials threatened, it falls to Piper to unmask a killer. Could it be the wedding planner with something to hide? A doctor and his wife who collect unusual Japanese figurines? The best man, an ex-drug dealer with lecherous eyes and roving hands? What about her cousin's future stepfather-or even the bridegroom himself?

As Piper gets close to figuring out who's been covering his guilty footprints in the sand, the cunning killer has already set his sights on Piper as his next victim!


I have read book number 2 (The Look of Love) in this series a while back and I very much enjoyed it. I enjoyed this one as much as the other one. 
You do not have to have to read the other books in this series so you do not get confused. 
If you like mystery novels then I think you might enjoy this one.

If you want to purchase this book you can do so in major bookstores online and offline
