About the Book:
Things are going great for Lexy Baker. She's finally opened her dream bakery, gotten rid of her cheating boyfriend and settled into her grandmother’s house with her perky dog Sprinkles at her side.
But her blissful life doesn't last long. When her ex boyfriend is found poisoned with cupcakes from her bakery, Lexy finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation headed up by her hunky neighbor detective Jack Perillo.
With the help of a gang of iPad toting, would-be detective grandmothers, Lexy decides to take it upon herself to find the real murderer in order to clear her name and get her bakery back in business.
As things heat up on the murder trail, in the kitchen and between Lexy and the hunky detective, it's a race against time to put the real murderer behind bars and get back to baking.
Will Lexy get her man?
This was a free book I grabbed on Kindle quite a while ago. I was finally able to find some time to read it. While it obviously wasn’t Joanne Fluke, it was still a fun read. A quick read with fun characters and romance a little more steamy than most cozy mystery, but not heavy. I’m excited to see how this budding romance continues.
Overall I enjoyed the book and will continue the series. Lexy doesn’t seem to be as clever as Hannah Swensen, but I’m looking forward to see how her detective skills growth and the help she may receive from her grandmother and friends.
