Framed and Frosted (Cupcake Catering Mystery Series)
by Kim Davis
I love the plot in Framed and Frosted. Along with a well-crafted mystery, a lot of other things happen in the book. As much as I’d love to divulge those things, I won’t! You’ll have to find them out for yourself.

Kim Davis is an awesome storyteller and her books are amazing treats that should not be missed!

This story does pack in a lot of sub-plots . . . they only add to the story and do not detract at all. I was amazed at how the author kept everything flowing smoothly and wove each story succinctly into the major plot.
Framed and Frosted, the third book in the Cupcake Catering Mystery series, finds cupcake caterer, Emory Martinez, working at a Laguna Beach society Fourth of July soiree, with her sister and their new employee, Sal. With a host that seems intent on accosting both catering employees and guests alike, things go from bad to worse when he accuses Sal of murdering his long-dead son.
As the crescendo of exploding fireworks overhead becomes the backdrop for cupcakes and champagne, a deadly murder occurs. Can Sal and Emory explain why the cupcake the host ate, after shoving a trayful of buttercream frosted cupcakes onto Sal, resulted in his death? Or will the guests and detective alike believe that Sal is a murderer? Emory and her octogenarian employer, Tillie, whip into action to find out who framed Sal after being frosted by the victim.
The characters are well rounded and well developed. Emory once again has a mystery to solve, this one being who killed the host of a catering party her sister was working. Tillie is a hoot and she gets Emory and herself in some funny predicaments. But they are also getting pretty good at figuring out the killer and the culprit should be worried.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions added a lot to my enjoyment. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The mystery was well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider. I really enjoyed trying to figure out the murderer.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. I really love this series and the author’s way of telling a story, and if you have not read this series yet, I suggest you do.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
