Book Description

 March 3, 2015
When Devereaux “Dev” Sinclair hosts a cupcake contest at her five-and-dime store, she discovers that someone is just dying to win... 

Kizzy Cutler finds it so delicious to be back in her hometown of Shadow Bend, Missouri, that she seems to have forgotten why she fled twenty years ago. For now, she’s excited to kick off her new line of cupcakes with a competition, which Dev has agreed to host in her shop. But before the first yummy cupcake is even baked, Kizzy's assistant Fallon dies from a mysterious ailment.

While the medical examiner attempts to discover what killed Fallon, Kizzy declares that the show must go on. However after Kizzy escapes several near misses, Dev is convinced that someone in Shadow Bend has it in for the Cupcake Queen. Is the secret from her past so dark someone still wants to kill her for it?

With a list of not-so-sweet suspects, Dev’s in a race against the timer to solve the murder before someone else gets iced…

My review:

Head on over to Shadow Bend and catch up with Dev and her friends. They are busy preparing  for the cupcake contest that is soon to take place. When Fallon, Kizzy's assistant is killed, it brings the preperations come to a stop. Kizzy is determined to win and doesn't want the death to put a hold on the events and that makes the others think she has something to do with it.

Dev and her friends have to do what they can to find out who killed Fallon and stop them before they strike again so the cupcake contest can resume. 

This delicious whodunit will be hard to put down. You will be hooked by the story line and the characters are so likable. I am eager to visit again and look forward to the next one.
