Pumpkin Spice Peril

Fairy Tale Cupcakes makes a return appearance in this the 12th installment.  This time Mel and Angie are investigating the sudden heart attack of their artist friend, Rene.  Jenn McKinlay does a wonderful job of describing her glass blown art and you cannot help but want to visit Scottsdale to see it if it really existed.   In addition to the death of their friend, there is lots going on in the personal lives of the 2 bakery owners.  Several are unresolved so we will have to wait for the next book to see what happens.   We meet a few new characters in this book\ and the DeLaura brothers play some central comedic roles in this story as they have in the past. 

The cupcakes in the story sound fabulous and the best part is there is no calorie to be found in reading about them.

Pumpkin Spice Peril (Cupcake Bakery Mystery, #12)Pumpkin Spice Peril by Jenn McKinlay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jenn McKinlay has written another fun installment in her Cupcake Bakery series. Always fun to catch up with the crew at Fairy Tale Cupcakes in Scottsdale. An amazing number of murders seem to happen around them and this is raising the concern of the police chief. Not even Uncle Stan seems to be able to Mel from the wrath of the chief. This installment had some fun twists on the dynamics of the central crew in the stories. The murder in the case is a bit close to home being a friend of Mel and Angie's. The story line takes a few good twists and keeps the reader guessing who is the guilty party.
