‘Will keep you entertained right til the end!’ 5***** reader review
For six amateur bakers, competing in Bake Week is a dream come true.
But for the show’s famous host, Betsy Martin, it’s more than a competition. It’s her legacy.
As she welcomes contestants to her ancestral home, Grafton Manor, she’s excited to discover who will have
what it takes win the ultimate prize: The Golden Spoon.
Quickly, though, things start to go wrong…
The contestants are jittery – they’ve heard strange noises in the manor at night.
Betsy is irate – a new co-host has arrived, and he’s out for her spotlight.
Then, the sabotage begins. At first, it’s small. Sugar switched for salt. A hob turned too high.
But when a body is discovered, everyone becomes a suspect.
Because for someone at Bake Week it’s time to settle old scores . . .
