I’ve always believed
strawberry shortcake was one of those perfect desserts; impossible to improve
Bake, Love Write author, Donnell Ann Bell, adding one simple ingredient,
proved me wrong. Her Toasted Strawberry Shortcake is simple and quick, but
dressed with what I like to call “liquid gold.” And any pastry that can be
toasted is one step above great. What Donnell did to strawberry shortcake was
to brushed each piece of pound cake with Grand Marnier and broil each side
until nice and toasty before adding the strawberry topping. She turned a fabulous dessert into an unforgettable one.

Reid is an investigative reporter skilled at uncovering other people’s
secrets. It’s her own that she works to keep buried. Eight years earlier,
she promised to leave her fiancé and hometown of Diamond, Texas forever. That
pledge vanishes when she receives a letter stating people are going to die,
implicating her hometown’s largest employer, and making a veiled threat against
her mother. With no other choice, Diana will return to Diamond, albeit in
disguise, to discover the anonymous author.
Jordan moved on with his life after Diana walked out on him. Needless to say,
she’s an unwelcome topic. Just as he rebuilt his life, the newly elected
mayor of Diamond, and newly engaged to be married man, plans to rebuild his
struggling hometown. Those plans are threatened, however, when an El Paso
physician notifies Brad that she believes his family’s company, Jordan
Industries, is conducting illegal practices and sacrificing the public’s
the doctor suggests bringing in Diana to uncover the wrongdoing, Brad opposes
the idea. Still, when she appears despite his wishes, he is forced to
accept that a woman he vowed to forget may be his only option to get to the
truth. Together Diana Reid and Brad Jordan face a dangerous adversary—one whose
only intent is keeping a deadly agenda buried.
