Description
The Fairy Tale Cupcake crew must discover the truth behind a death sprinkled with suspicion before Mel and Joe can say "I do”, in the thirteenth Cupcake Bakery Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay.
Life is sweet and business is booming at the Fairy Tale Cupcakes bakery—and the fact that Mel and Joe are getting married is the icing on the cake. Their reception will be held at the swanky resort where Oz works as the pastry chef. The wedding planning is all fun-fetti and games until Mel and Joe meet the head chef at the resort who has been making Oz's life miserable. When the eccentric chef insults Mel's bakery, Oz gets into a blowout argument with the culinary prima donna. 
Things turn extra sour when the chef is murdered, and Oz is the police's main suspect. As the countdown to the wedding day begins, Mel, Joe, and the rest of the Fairy Tale Cupcake crew must sift through clues to catch the real killer and clear Oz's name before their wedding plans are totally battered and baked.

        With her wedding fast approaching, Melanie Cooper, co-owner of Fairy Tale Cupcakes, is sidetracked when her friend and former employee, master pastry chef Oscar ""Oz"" Ruiz, becomes the chief suspect in executive chef Miles Gallway's murder. Oz and Gallway had a recent public altercation, and Oz finds Gallway's body in his pastry kitchen. Melanie, with the help of her best friend and business partner, Angie; Oz; octogenarian employee Marty; and Angie's numerous brothers, uncovers other suspects and motives. Complicating matters, Melanie learns Oz has a secret that affects her and may lead to a change in their relationship. The large and appealing cast of characters drive the story, with wedding preparations and the details of operating a bakery framing this thirteenth entry in McKinlay's Cupcake Bakery Mystery series, which will draw readers who enjoy similar baking-themed crime novels, including those featuring Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen, Sarah Graves' Jacobia Tiptree, Lucy Burdette's Hayley Snow, and Ellie Alexander's Jules Capshaw. Delicious-sounding cupcake recipes append the text.
