Cupcake Bakery Mystery, Book #5
A new Cupcake Bakery Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay is icing on the cupcake!
After a cupcake-flinging fiasco at a photo shoot for a local magazine, Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura agree to make amends by hosting a weeklong corporate boot camp at Fairy Tale Cupcakes. The idea is the brainchild of billionaire Ian Hannigan, new owner of SWS (Southwest Style), a lifestyle magazine that chronicles the lives of Scottsdale’s rich and famous. He’s assigned his staff to a team-building week of making cupcakes for charity.
It’s clear that the staff would rather be doing just about anything other than frosting baked goods. But when the magazine’s creative director is found murdered outside the bakery, Mel and Angie have a new team-building exercise—find the killer before their business goes AWOL.

The characters are well rounded and well developed. When Mel and Angie get into a cupcake war with their nemesis, Olivia, they agree to a weeklong corporate boot camp for the owner of a magazine. The staff members were not happy about it, but they are going to do it. When someone from the magazine is killed. Mel and Angie will have to find the killer.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The mystery is well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. I cannot wait to read about their next adventure.
