Great read, good plot and interesting characters. This is the third in the series and the family and romantic relationships grow and develop with each book. Recipes in the back of the book are a bonus.

Another good "cozy" mystery from Ms. McKinlay. Did have one or two silly scenes that should have been left out. I am looking forward to the next in the series when it comes out, Red Velvet Revenge.

Melanie and partner Angie enter a local baking contest for a chance at the $10,000 grand prize and bragging rights for their bakery, Fairy Tale Cupcakes. Mel is surprised to learn her mentor from culinary school is a judge, and even more surprised and saddened when he turns up dead in a freezer at the competition. Rumor spreads that his death was a suicide, but Mel refuses to believe it. Mel and Angie use the competition to find out who knows the secret ingredient to murder, and it almost kills one of them. Angie's heart struggles between her rock-star boyfriend, Roach, and her childhood love, Tate. Mel begins to suffer somewhat with commitment issues with boyfriend Joe. All seven of Angie's brothers are in rare form. The new intern proves looks can be deceiving and he earns more than praise for his talents.
