Wedding Cake Crumble (Cupcake Bakery Mystery #10) by Jenn McKinlay


“With Angie and Tate’s wedding just around the corner, it’s a happy time for Melanie Cooper and the bakery crew. Not only are they finessing the last-minute details of the big day, but their bakery, Fairy Tale Cupcakes, has just been hired to bake cupcakes for the blockbuster book signing of a controversial author who wrote a steamy bestseller filled with juicy local gossip. But one by one, the people Angie has hired to work at the wedding begin turning up dead. As the body count rises, the bestselling author becomes the next target. Mel quickly realizes she needs to figure out how the murders are connected and why – before the killer brings the entire cupcake crew crumbling down. After all, Angie and Tate deserve their sweet happily ever after.”

Wedding Cake Crumble is book ten in the Cupcake Bakery Mystery series, and I had no idea I was already on book ten until I read the acknowledgments at the beginning of this book. I say this about every book in the series, but this one has to be my favorite cover by far. I also really love the cover, especially the design on the cupcakes and that gorgeous Arizona sunset in the background!

There was a lot to love about this book, as usual. The concept of the local bestselling author being a target was very intriguing. Once again, Jenn McKinlay perfectly describes every area of Scottsdale, from Old Town to the neighborhoods built in the 50s with all their funky architecture. As a local myself, I am always so pleased at the way she describes the area from that viewpoint.

This was a very fun, happy book in the series as we get to see some of the characters make some big changes in their lives. As much as I enjoyed seeing Angie and Tate tie the knot, I also loved how their friendship with Mel was solidified even more. I look forward to reading the next book in the series soon.
