Review of Killer Cupcakes


Things are going great for Lexy Baker. She’s finally opened her dream bakery, gotten rid of her cheating boyfriend and settled into her grandmother’s house with her perky dog Sprinkles at her side.

But her blissful life doesn’t last long. When her ex boyfriend is found poisoned with cupcakes from her bakery, Lexy finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation headed up by her hunky neighbor detective Jack Perillo.

With the help of a gang of iPad toting, would-be detective grandmothers, Lexy decides to take it upon herself to find the real murderer in order to clear her name and get her bakery back in business.

As things heat up on the murder trail, in the kitchen and between Lexy and the hunky detective, it’s a race against time to put the real murderer behind bars and get back to baking.

Will Lexy get her man?  (Goodreads)


The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Lexy is busy keeping her bakery up and running and enjoying her time with Sprinkles, her dog.  When her ex-boyfriend is poisoned and one of her cupcakes is the murder weapon, she definitely has a problem.  She will need the help from the grandmothers from the Brook Ridge Retirement Center, including her own, to try and solve this mystery.  

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning.  The mystery was well plotted and not easily solved.With the twists and turns, I could not decide who the culprit was until it was revealed at the end.  

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I cannot wait to read the next book to see what Lexy is involved in.
