Buttercream Bump Off
By Jenn McKinlay
Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura's Fairy Tale Cupcakes bakery is gearing up for Valentine's Day. Unfortunately someone has iced Baxter Malloy on his first date with Mel's mother. Now Mom's a suspect, and Mel and Angie need to find time around frosting to dig into the man's shady past and discover who served him his just desserts.
McKinlay has done it again with this book. You would think with all the cozy mysteries I read they would get boring. Most cozies have the same skeleton but different story lines. McKinlay has kept me guessing all the way to the end of both books she has written. Melanie and Angie get involved trying to find who the murderer is while Angie has some personal things going on at the same time. The relationships between the characters in this series are very carefully set up and totally believable. I love Melanie, Angie, Tate and the others.
