Cozy mystery authors Jenn McKinlay, author of the cupcake bakery mystery series, as well as Kate Carlisle and Annette Mahon, will be at mystery bookstore The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona tonight for a fun mystery discussion! I'm overdue on a post about Jenn's latest cupcake mystery, Red Velvet Revenge, but I can tell you I highly recommend it, it kept me guessing, and there's even a cake pop subplot!
Here's the official description of Red Velvet Revenge; click here to read Chapter 1:
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.
