In Dead-End Detective, both Darby and Tate want answers about the murder of someone they both loved…but Darby isn’t so sure about Tate and his true motives. Darby’s mother, on the other hand, isn’t a bit suspicious of Tate; she invites him over for a delicious dinner, concluding with a homemade berry trifle, and Darby’s whole family gives Tate a warm welcome. Our berry trifle is as impressive-looking as it is delicious, and it’ll make any guest feel special.
