Death by the Dozen

Melanie and Angie are determined to win the Challenge to the Chef to promote their Fairy Tale Cupcakes bakery. Mel's mentor from culinary school, Vic Mazzotta, may be one of the judges, but Mel and Angie will have to win fair and square. But, when Vic's dead body is found inside a freezer truck, Mel and Angie will need to use their best judgment to find the cold-blooded killer or they may lose more than the contest- they may lose their lives. 

This is the third book in Jenn McKinlay's Cupcake Bakery Mystery series, taking place at a cooking competition where all kinds of unusual but wonderful baked goods are made from a mystery ingredient. But death comes knocking at Mel's door once again when her mentor is murdered on the grounds of the competition.

I love the dynamics between Mel and her best friends Angie and Tate, who are hopelessly in love with each other but both too stubborn to make the first move. In the first book of the series Tate's fiancee was in the picture, now it's Angie's rocker boyfriend Roach. My heart broke for Tate by the end. And I just adore little Captain Jack and the circumstances of how Mel came to adopt'll just have to read the book to meet the little fur baby!!!
