Killer Cupcakes

In the first installment of the Lexy Baker Bakery Mystery from Leighann Dobbs, Killer Cupcakes, we were introduced to Lexy Baker and her dog Sparkles. Lexy owned a local bakery with her best friend Cassie, when she'd gotten embroiled into a messy mystery. First, she met her new neighbor, hunky Detective Jack Perillo, who was also a local cop. But when she was a chief suspect of poisoning her ex-boyfriend, it was up to Lexy to clear her name with the help of her grandmother and her friends, and save her bakery business, before it was too late.

This was a charming new culinary cozy series to try and dig your teeth into. In this light read, I cared about Lexy and her bakery business and her relationship with Jack. To have a handsome cop next door as your neighbor made a wonderful pairing for a couple. I didn't like the sleazy Jason one bit. I thought Nans and her friends was a nice touch to help Lexy out. I also loved the culinary recipe to make the same cupcake tops, too. I loved the small town feeling in New England for the perfect location and setting. Great drama, nice non-stop action for a quick read, and good mystery to wrap up towards the ends.

Want some killer cupcakes to try? Give this one a go!
