This is a first in the series Des and Dee Culinary Cozy by Susan D. Baker. It’s the perfect things to read if you only have an hour or so to spend. I really enjoyed it and will be interested in seeing when the next book comes out.
My Goodreads review:
Crime and Cupcakes by Susan D. Baker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a fun and quick mystery. The mystery itself was well constructed. Some of the writing was a little different from what I’m used to but sometimes it’s nice to be able to read a book quickly and simpler-constructed language definitely helps there.
Twin sisters Des and Dee have purchased a restaurant in their home town. This has been their dream for a long time so it’s finally come true. Sadly, the woman they bought from has passed away but the girls are convinced it’s murder. Especially since there’s a man who is planning to build a multi million dollar and has been buying up properties, having one of his employees nearly strong arm people into complying.
All clues point to one person until another person ends up dead. Is someone killing the business owners who refuse to sell out?
Sure some things were predictable but it was still fun. I honestly didn’t guess who the killer was and felt there were enough plot twists to keep me interested.
