Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura are finally living out their dream as the proud owners of the Fairy Tale Cupcakes bakery. But their first big client is a nightmare. She's a bridezilla who wants 500 custom cupcakes for her wedding.
When Mel stumbles upon the bride-to-be dead-by-cupcake, she becomes the prime suspect. To save themselves and their business, the ladies need to find the real murderer, before the cupcake killer ices someone else.
I am always looking for a great cozy series that I can fall into effortlessly and when it's done walk away with a smile of contentment. This was one of those books for me. Who can resist two best friends who have walked away from secure jobs to chase their dream of owning their own business? Further more, who can resist a cozy when it revolves around cupcakes!!?? I thought the characters were interesting people and I genuinely liked them. And to top it off, the culprit was not someone I immediately suspected...love it when that happens!!
Recommend? Most certainly! If you're looking for a new series to start, I think this one has a lot of potential. McKinlay has written four books so far with the fifth one to be released next year. You have plenty of time to get caught up!!!

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
