Book Review: Killer Cupcakes

Book Review - Killer Cupcakes - Katrina Roets
Things are going great for Lexy Baker. She's finally opened her dream bakery, gotten rid of her cheating boyfriend and settled into her grandmothers house with her perky dog Sprinkles at her side.

But her blissful life doesn't last long. When her ex boyfriend is found poisoned with cupcakes from her bakery, Lexy finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation headed up by her hunky neighbor detective Jack Perillo.

With the help of a gang of iPad toting, would-be detective grandmothers, Lexy decides to take it upon herself to find the real murderer in order to clear her name and get her bakery back in business.

As things heat up on the murder trail, in the kitchen and between Lexy and the hunky detective, it's a race against time to put the real murderer behind bars and get back to baking.

Will Lexy get her man?

I needed a day off reading and relaxing so I took one and came across this book on my Kindle. I have no idea when I picked it up, but I did!

The Good:

This was a really fast and easy read. I enjoyed seeing the relationships between Lexy and her nan and also between Lexy and her bestfriend. The big reveal wasn't anything shocking but sometimes you want a whodunit that doesn't tax your brain but just lets you smile and say yep, I got it.

The Bad:

Some of the book just wasn't believable. No baker is going to go to work wearing 3+ inch stilettos, especially expensive ones. Even the character said her feet would be killing her by the end of the day. Not to mention that they'd be absolutely destroyed the first time something was spilled on them. 

The Summary:

If you're looking for a light read, I can suggest this cozy mystery. Just be prepared to overlook some bits of silliness. I'm going to be checking out some of the author's other books the next time I get a chance to order some. For now, I believe that this book is free over on Amazon, so give it a read!
