Cozy Review- Dying for Devil’s Food

Recently the luck of the draw made me a winner in a free book contest. – katiescottagebooks.com

The book was the new release- Dying for Devil’s Food – Jenn McKinlay

This book was the eleventh in the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries (but my first read by this author).  –jennmckinlay.com

The book centers around a 15 year high school reunion.  The protagonist owns a cupcake shop and is hired to provide cupcakes for her own class reunion.  Not being one of the popular kids and suffering from intense bullying throughout school by the popular crowd who are now the reunion organizers, she has zero interest in attending but does to promote her business and also to standup to her old enemies.

At the beginning I have to admit I guessed who would be found dead and was not surprised where.  However, Jennifer McKinlay’s characters and storyline are so clearly formed that even though as the story developed, I had an inkling of who the murderer/murderess might be, I dove into her well-written plot like I would my favorite can of frosting.  A real page turner-especially the ending.

After this read I am definitely going to pick up another book by this author!
