Book Review/Giveaway - Sprinkles of Suspicion by Kim Davis

Sprinkles of Suspicion (Cupcake Catering Mystery, #1)Sprinkles of Suspicion by Kim Davis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Synopsis: One glass of cheap California chardonnay cost Emory Gosser Martinez her husband, her job, and her best friend. Unfortunately, that was only the beginning of her troubles.

Distraught after discovering the betrayal by her husband and best friend, Tori, cupcake caterer Emory Martinez allows her temper to flare. Several people witness her very public altercation with her ex-friend. To make matters worse, Tori exacts her revenge by posting a fake photo of Emory in a compromising situation, which goes viral on social media. When Tori is found murdered, all signs point to Emory being the prime suspect.

With the police investigation focused on gathering evidence to convict her, Emory must prove her innocence while whipping up batches of cupcakes and buttercream. Delving into the past of her murdered ex-friend, she finds other people had reasons to want Tori dead, including Emory’s own husband. Can she find the killer, or will the clues sprinkled around the investigation point the police back to her.

My Thoughts: Your basic cozy mystery only with the sweetness of cupcakes galore and some yummy recipes for us to try! I love both the cozy mystery and a book with recipes sprinkled inside so this was a win win situation!

I liked the heroine of the story but hated her being portrayed as so weak and simple minded. No matter how hard she tried to do anything or proclaim her innocence it always backfired on her bless her heart. Things just looked really bad for her as the main suspect because it was her best friend dead and Emory had just found out she had been sleeping with her husband and had a huge fight with her before her death.

Any mystery buff will enjoy this!
