Christmas Cupcakes and A Caper by D.E. Haggerty-Review

About the book 
It’s all candy cane cupcakes and peppermint coffee until you find a dead elf on your doorstep.
Only the elf wasn’t a real elf, because elves don’t actually exist – not even at Christmas time. A college student dressed like an elf decided taking a nap in sub-zero winter temps was a good idea. It wasn’t. Anna, the pink-haired baker extraordinaire of Callie’s Cakes, is convinced the student’s death was not an accident. She drags Callie and Kristie along with her as she attempts to discover who killed the elf … um… student.
Will the gals of Callie’s Cakes find the killer before Christmas is ruined?
Cupcakes not included, although you’ll find recipes for all the delicious Christmas cupcakes Anna baked.
And I thought
I couldn't wait to get to the end.  All that cupcake talk has mean wanting to bake.  And the recipes sound so good.
The reading was good!  I enjoyed this story.  I enjoyed the manicharacters they were silly, savy, and just plain like-a-able.
Although I did have a hard time keeping the girls straight and the boyfriends too.  
So I figured out Callie is the college professor.  Anna is her business partner and co-owner of the cupcake shop.  And there is Kristie who works at the bakery but has ties to an urban youth center. 
The girls have hunky I can't keep straight boyfriends either.  A police detective, a fireman and a gang force cop who are all a step away anytime there is an emergency at the bakery.  
As the girls begin to dig for clues it doesn't take them long to find a few suspects.  
There are some twists and turns and a bit of a shocker at the end 
D. E. Haggerty has a new fan of this fun cozy series.

My review will appear on retail sites, Good Reads and promoted on social media.

  1. Thanks for taking the time to read and review Christmas Cupcakes. I'm glad you enjoyed it. The ladies and their boyfriends are a part of my life, so I didn't think readers would have a hard time keeping them apart. I will work on that in future installments of the series.
