Fun first in a series. Well written with a fun trio of main characters, Melanie, Angie and Tate. Melanie and Angie are co-owners of the Fairy Tale Cupcake Bakery. Tate’s fiance is murdered and that puts both Tate and Melanie directly in the path of the investigation. Melanie start investigating to save herself and Tate. There are several probable suspects and Melanie does conduct her own investigation into the murder.
I did figure out the mystery far before the end, so perhaps a one of the clues was a little too obvious, but I still enjoyed reading it to the end. The only other issue I had was the relationship between Angie’s brother Joe and Melanie. It seemed to me unrealistic that Melanie was Angie’s best friend and yet had not had contact or interaction with Joe since she was in middle school and so had never gotten over her crush. This romance was a pretty light element in the book though so this is not that big of a problem.
I will read more in this series and see where it goes.
