from The Cakes of Wrath (4th in the series, available for pre-order now)
A Piece of Cake Mystery by Jacklyn Brady
God knows I love her. She's family, after all. But she's . . . well, she has a tendency to be a bit bossy, if you want to know the truth. Not that I'm talking bad about her. Bless her heart, I'm sure she doesn't mean to stick her nose in where it doesn't belong. She just can't seem to help herself. It's been a problem her entire life. All I can say is, she's lucky I'm a lady. A less refined woman might have been tempted to express her opinion.
Now here's the thing: Frances Mae has corralled her daughter-in-law -- that's Rita Lucero, y'all -- into giving me a job at Zydeco Cakes. The two of them expect me to work like a common laborer, and they don't even care that I might ruin my manicure! What Frances Mae has done is wrong on so many levels I can hardly wrap my mind around it. I know it sounds harsh, but maybe if Rita was a little more understanding about what I'm going through, she might not have run into so much trouble.
Frances Mae would laugh at the idea of karma, and I'm sure Rita would too. So I'm here looking for back-up. Do you believe that what goes around, comes around? That we reap what we sow in this world?
