Review: Sprinkle with murder - Jenn McKinlay

Sprinkle with murder by Jenn McKinlay
published March 2010
light romantic suspense
bought my copy

Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura couldn't be happier with their professional life. After years of dreaming about their own cupcake bakery they were finally able to open it with the help of their close friend Tate.
In their private life things are not so easy. Tate's fiancee Christie is a real bridezilla and designing the cupcakes for their wedding is a lot of trouble. When Christie is murdered things get even more complicated. Mel and Tate are both suspects and Mel decides that she needs to solve the murder to be able to move on with her life. 

When I saw the cover of "Sprinkle with murder" I hoped for a light-hearted story with great and likable characters. And that's exactly what I got. I was able to get into the story right from the start and finished the book in on day. It's easy to read and made me smile a lot. 
I liked reading about the friendship between Mel, Angie and Tate and loved learning more about them.

The mystery part is not very dark and it wasn't too easy to figure out who the killer is. 
I'm happy that "Sprinkle with murder" is the first book in a series because I want to read more about the three friends and want to see if Mel and Angie's brother Joe will have a relationship (hope so). 

So beautiful and delicious. Love the colours and the cover fits the book perfectly. 

final appraisal
A light-hearted and very entertaining story that concentrates on three close friends and of course delicious cupcakes. If you are looking for a book that helps you to relax for some hours and makes you smile a lot then this one is for you.
