Red Velvet Revenge by Jenn McKinlay

  This is book 4 in the Cupcake Bakery Mystery Series.  Business is slow for the Fairy Tale Cupcakes Shop during the heatwave and so Melanie and Angie take the show on the road.  With Angie’s family’s help, they rehab a mobile cupcake van and take it to a rodeo where they set up shop.  Of course upon their arrival there is a shooting, a murder, animal rights activists and other shady characters to contend with.   I am always leery when cozy mystery series attempt to “take the show on the road” so to speak, or rather leave the “cozy” setting they have established, but this worked really well and was a fun read.  Being out of town Melanie’s romance took a backseat, while Angie’s romantic subplot was still being decided.  Well done storyline with a fun rodeo backdrop for the mystery!  Recommended for all cozy lovers
