Red Velvet Revenge

Cupcake Bakery Mystery, Book #4

From the New York Times bestselling author…

It may be summertime, but sales at Fairy Tale Cupcakes are below zero–and owners Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura are willing to try anything to heat things up. So when local legend Slim Hazard offers them the chance to sell cupcakes at the annual Juniper Pass rodeo, they’re determined to rope in a pretty payday!

But not everyone at the Juniper Pass is as sweet for Fairy Tale Cupcakes as Slim–including star bull-rider Ty Stokes. Mel and Angie try to steer clear of the cowboy’s short fuse, but when his dead body is found face down in the hay, it’s a whole different rodeo.

With a vengeful murderer on the loose, the ladies are quickly realizing that while they came to save their business, they may have to save themselves–and that’s no bull.



The character’s are well rounded and well developed.  No matter what situation Mel and Angie get into, they work together and find a solution.  Even when they go to work at a rodeo to make extra money, trouble follows them.  When a star bull-rider is murdered, they have to figure out the culprit.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive and these descriptions added a lot to the story.  The mystery was well crafted and it was not easily solved, which is how I like my mysteries.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. I am enjoying this series so much, you will too.
