A secretary is murdered at Master Ketchup where Christine, Amelia's best friend works.Â Christine is afraid that the murderer meant to kill her as Danielle, the secretary, was temporarily assigned to Christine's marketing department. She asks Amelia to move her cupcake truck to outside Master Ketchup so she could investigate the murder. Dan, of course, has asked Amelia to stay out of the murder investigation.
I enjoyed this story. John's wedding plans are heating up and people are getting upset over those plans. Amelia supports her children no matter what. Dan is fitting very well in Amelia's and the kids' lives. I liked that the murder was fit into the daily lives of the characters involved but that it was only a part of their lives. We get more of who they are and their relationships with each other. I figured out who the murderer was and why (unusual for me.}
I look forward to more in this series.
Feeling really meh about this paranormal cozy. I figured out the killer early in the story, and wasn't all that interested in the dynamics of the relationships between the different characters. I felt that the ending didn't resolve the murder mystery and left too many loose ends. Not going to read anymore in the series.
Beefcake & Cupcakes is my first book by Judi Fennell. This book is both entertaining and fun. Lara and Gage's story is full of drama, humor and sizzle. The characters Ms Fennell has created are lovable and make this story awesome. This book is well-written and a nice smooth read. I enjoyed Beefcake & Cupcakes and look forward to reading more from Judi Fennell soon. Beefcake & Cupcakes is book 1 in the Beefcake, Inc Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I bought a copy of this book at a book signing.
