… the sweet cupcake bakery mysteries? Mel, Angie and Tate are back, in Jenn McKinlay’s Buttercream Bump Off*, with all of their nutty family and friends, for a second helping of yummy cupcake fun, movie trivia and murder.
Mel’s mom, Joyce, interrupts a couple’s cupcake baking class with news that she has a date. Joyce doesn’t know that her handsome date is actually a con man, and when he is murdered on the date, Mel and Angie have to figure out who did it to get Joyce off the police’s list of suspects.
Angie falls for the con man’s son, and Tate is still clueless that he is really in love with Angie. Sounds like a soap opera or a screwball comedy! Complicated, maybe, but loads of fun to unravel in this fast read with great recipes to try out.
