Have You Heard About... Death by the Dozen

… the Scottsdale Food Festival? Jenn McKinlay’s newest book, Death by the Dozen*, has Mel, Angie, Tate and all of the DeLaura brothers back for the baking festival of the year. This one comes with a $10,000 prize and a lot of prestige.

Crazy Olivia is up to her usual shenanigans again to try to sabotage Mel and Angie’s efforts to win the contest. There is a new foodie intern at Fairy Tale Cupcakes named Oz. Keep your eyes open for all that he contributes to the story. Mel’s mentor is literally put on ice, and it’s up to her to try to figure out who killed him. Meanwhile, Angie and Tate are still trying to figure out if they are meant to be or if Angie’s current boyfriend Roach is still in the picture.

A new character named Captain Jack will steal your heart in this delightful read.

* Earlier books in the series are Sprinkle with Murder and Buttercream Bump Off.
