Red Velvet Revenge is the 4th in the Cucpake Bakery Mystery series by author Jenn McKinlay.  This is such a fun series and I love all the cupcake flavors that they create.  I haven’t tried any of the recipes yet but they sure sound yummy!



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 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 facedown 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.
