Buttercream Bump Off

Cover: 'Buttercream Bump Off'

Staff Review: "Buttercream Bump Off" by Jenn McKinlay


The second novel in the cozy "Cupcake Mystery" series, finds Mel and Angie, co-owners of Fairy Tale Cupcakes Bakery, wrapped up way too closely in murder. Mel's mother has just found her first date in decades floating in his pool. Now she is a prime suspect, and her daughter Mel and best friend Angie race to find other suspects for the police to focus on. Amidst preparing the bakery for Valentine's Day, relationship troubles, and keeping Mel's mother out of jail, Angie and Mel have their hands full. This is another great series by a wonderful author. I recommend all of Jenn McKinlay's books!
