Killer Cupcakes (MURDER IN THE MIX Book 14) by [Moore, Addison]A baker who sees the dead. One too many suitors.
And a killer. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder.

*A laugh out loud standalone cozy mystery by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore* All books in the series can be read individually but are best enjoyed in order.

My name is Lottie Lemon, and I see dead people. Okay, so I rarely see dead people, mostly I see furry creatures of the dearly departed variety, aka dead pets, who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owner’s impending doom. 

It’s October and the entire town has come out to celebrate the Haunted Honey Hollow Festival. In between doling out cupcakes and partaking in the festivities myself, I happen to stumble upon a body—not just any body—one that has far too many skeletons in the closet for me to ever sift through. Add to it my already complicated love life, the ghost of a black cat named Thirteen, a surprise that I never see coming and you’ll have the most frightening Halloween Honey Hollow has ever seen.

Lottie Lemon has a brand new bakery to tend to, a budding romance with perhaps one too many suitors, and she has the supernatural ability to see dead pets—which are always harbingers for ominous things to come. Throw in the occasional ghost of the human variety, a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with.

Living in the small town of Honey Hollow can be murder.   (Amazon)

A Wedding to Die For : 

When Aria is blamed for the death of a local estate-owner, Fletcher Davenport, she quickly finds herself juggling more than her unusual customers…

Who could really be behind Fletcher’s murder? Her new bridezilla-esque client, who seems unusually interested in Fletcher’s estate? The dark witch, Hazel, whom Aria never quite trusted? Maybe even Mayor Donovan, who’s clearly in cahoots with an out-of-town property developer…

Designer Sales and Secrets : 

When Aria convinces Zola Cates, wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, to host a sample sale in her store, she had no idea that she’d become embroiled in a murder investigation…

When her handsome kinda-sorta-boyfriend Detective Jack Bowers can’t break the case, Aria and her cute parrot pal Kiwi take matters into the own hands to save the reputation of Blue Moon Bridal!

In Hot Fudge and Cold Blood : 

Aria Whitmore has enough on her plate: Hazel’s sudden revelation, her mother’s romantic obsession with Mayor Donovan, and, of course, Kiwi’s latest food obsession – fudge.

Has Aria’s mother taken her meddling too far this time?
