Frosted Yuletide Murder (Cupcake Catering Mystery Series)
by Kim Davis

Kim Davis has definitely drawn me in with this second book of hers that I’ve read… and I’ve already gotten copies of the first few in this series. I’m plotting out when to read them throughout the next three months so that I’m fully caught up when her 2022 release is published.

About Frosted Yuletide Murder

Ms. Davis is such an outstanding storyteller. Everyone has known or dealt with a bully in our lives so it is so easy to identify with Carrie and Emory and what they felt dealing with Blair, so that draws you into the story right away. After that, the author pulls you in even tighter with the murder and then you find you just can’t put this book down.

About The Book

Set against the holiday cheer of twinkling lights, costumed carolers, and a festive line of extravagantly decorated boats participating in the annual Christmas boat parade in Newport Beach, California, cupcake caterer Emory Martinez finds that the grinch has crashed the party. Together with her sister Carrie, Emory is catering a delectable feast of holiday cupcakes and cookies aboard a luxury yacht for the new Mrs. Blair Villman and her guests.

Sparks fly when Carrie comes face-to-face with the hostess, who just happens to be Carrie’s high school frenemy, and old grievances are dredged up. Adding fuel to the fire, Blair’s stepson brings his mother, the former Mrs. Villman, to the party. Instead of celebrating holiday cheer, someone seems intent on channeling the Burgermeister Meisterburger and shutting down Blair’s party permanently. When Emory finds a body aboard the yacht, she needs to discover who iced the victim before the Scrooge ruins not only her livelihood but her freedom as well.

Includes delicious holiday recipes.

Review:

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Emory and her sister, Carrie, are catering the food and cupcakes for a yacht party.  When they find out that the hostess for the party is an enemy of Carrie’s from high school, things are  not good.  When someone is killed, things get worse.  Emory has to figure out the murderer is before their catering business takes a big hit. On a positive note, Emory and Carrie are going to meet their half sister and get to know her.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the beginning.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The mystery was well plotted and there were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through.  The mystery was not easily solved and that is just how I like my mysteries.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I have enjoyed all of the books by this author and you will too.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
