It may be summertime, but sales at Fairy Tale Cupcakes are below zero–and owners Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura are willing to try anything to heat things up. So when local legend Slim Hazard offers them the chance to sell cupcakes at the annual Juniper Pass rodeo, they’re determined to rope in a pretty payday!

 But not everyone at the Juniper Pass is as sweet for Fairy Tale Cupcakes as Slim–including star bull-rider Ty Stokes. Mel and Angie try to steer clear of the cowboy’s short fuse, but when his dead body is found face down in the hay, it’s a whole different rodeo.

 With a vengeful murderer on the loose, the ladies are quickly realizing that while they came to save their business, they may have to save themselves–and that’s no bull.

My Thoughts

This book is #4 in the Cupcake Bakery Series. Mystery and murder should be the middle names of Mel and Angie! Just when you think things will calm down for them, business goes stale.

Mel and Angie find themselves with a proposition to sell their cupcakes at a Rodeo in Juniper Pass. Things quickly turn dangerous and they set out to find the truth.

I honestly was not sure how much I’d enjoy this edition to the series solely on the fact that it took place around a rodeo. I was pleasantly surprised how the story and characters continue to develop.

If you are looking for a fun cozy mystery series this one is for you!
