With Angie and Tate’s wedding just around the corner, it’s a happy–but very busy–time for Mel. Not only is she doing double duty as both the maid of honor and best man, but her bakery, Fairy Tale Cupcakes, has just been hired to provide cupcakes for a famous author’s book signing. But when the author turns up dead, it’s just the start of a murder mystery that Mel must solve.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I liked this book! I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys cozy drama, cozy mystery, cozy crime, and light, easy to read fiction. The book also contains some awesome cupcake recipes, which is always a plus to readers who enjoy baking- like me.

The author Jenn McKinlay set a wonderful tone to the book with the beginning chapter. It was suspenseful and problematic with the kind of problems you want to solve in a character elimination who dunnit fashion as you were introduced to them. I enjoyed the character development, though this was my first book to read within the series and I was not familiar with any of them. The setting made for a familiar and interesting read and I liked the way the scenes were set up within each chapter. I found a couple typos but they weren’t overly distracting.

I did struggle with such a large portion of dialogue though. I caught myself speed reading quite often rather than truly enjoying all the moments that were unfolding and twisting. There were parts that were fast paced, but a fair bit of it dragged and barely got anywhere with so much talking. Talking and talking and talking. I felt the plot lost some of its depth because it was overshadowed by so much dialogue.

As far as the plot itself was concerned, I really appreciated the satisfying resolution even though I was unsure if it was going to wrap up completely like I hoped toward the end, I wasn’t disappointed. I would like to read more within the series, perhaps starting with the first next time and then picking up again with the next installment.
