It’s been a few years since I read the debut in the Cupcake Bakery series written by Jenn McKinlay. Given the author has 6 or 7 series, I dove into several others first, and now that I’ve caught up on those, I am turning back to this one. Today, I reread reviews of the first book to reorient myself again, then I took on Buttercream Bump Off, the second in the series. It was easy to settle back into the story, as McKinlay’s writing style is strong and witty.
At first, I struggled to keep the two main female protagonists separated: Mel and Angie have co-owned the bakery with their third pal, Tate, for years. Though the POV is 3rd person, it generally focuses more on Mel, who is dating 1 of Angie’s 7 brothers. Angie and Tate secretly love each other but have been dating different people. They call each other’s family ‘Mom’ sometimes, so it was a little tricky but by the end of the book, I had it sorted out. Mel’s mom is in trouble this time, when she goes on a first date decades after her husband passed away. What a hoot! But he dies in the hot tub, and Mel’s mom looks guilty because she had an investment that went belly up with the man. She blames the dress, which had coincidentally given a man in a department store a heart attack when she purchased it!
Overall, the mystery was clever but the killer revealed him/herself rather quickly. I actually guessed the identity well in advance, but at the same time… the details were a bit missing to really believe it 100%. That said, it’s funny and has great scenes, so overall, it’s a solid read. A lot like a Janet Evanovich novel, just not as spicy. I will continue to read them all and catch up to the ~15th or so waiting in my queue! Ah, the life of a reader… thankfully we have variety and creative authors like McKinlay to keep us entertained.
Buttercream Bump Off audiobook Series Cupcake Bakery Mystery
This novel is one of the funniest mysteries I’ve read — as good as Jana DeLeon’s Miss Fortune, and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books. Mel and Angie, the cupcake store owners are hysterical as they muddle their way through friendship, love and murder. Mel’s mother, Joyce is the unfortunate last date of a Ponzi scheme artist. Mel, Angie, and their no-so silent investor, Tate, rally to solve the murder. Wrong and right move for them. Wonderful for readers. Breezy, genuine friendships, good mystery, and a perfect book. Highly recommended!
Audiobook Buttercream Bump Off by Jenn McKinlay
The delightful bakers from The Fairy Tale Bakery are back in a second installment in the series. If you enjoyed the first one, you will certainly enjoy this one.
This is one of those series that I turn to when I just need a good reliable read.
What I liked about the book: I like Mel. She’s a sensible heroine. Oh sure, like most amateur detectives she is convinced that the police couldn’t possibly be trusted to solve the mystery and so she takes it upon herself to save the day. However, I like the fact that she doesn’t intentionally put herself in ridiculously dangerous situations. Her sidekick, Angie is a breath of fresh air. I’d love to have a best friend like her. She’s a force to be reckoned with, but has a heart of gold. I particularly liked that in this installment, Angie finally gets a love life. Though I must admit, I’m a little worried about Mel’s.
Many cozy mysteries have one character that the reader is not supposed to like – you know that annoying pain in the side character. In this series, it’s Olivia Plunkett – rival baker. What I like about this series and this book in particular, the annoying character is not overwhelmingly annoying. In some mysteries, the annoying character plays too big of a role and sometimes gets in the way of the actual mystery.
And of course, I love that the book includes cupcake recipes. I really want to try some of them, but I’m not sure my waistline can take the risk.
What I didn’t like about the book: As I said this is a series that I turn to when I need a solid good read. I was not disappointed.

ButterCream Bump-Off is a fast, fun read that I would recommend to anyone looking for an enjoyable book with likeable characters. And of course there are a number of delicious cake and frosting recipes in the back that I can’t wait to try.
Angie & Mel, long-time best friends and co-owners of Fairy Tale Cupcakes, are delighted but a little leery when Mel’s widowed mom Joyce is invited to dinner by a charming man. Their suspicions are well-founded when the date is found dead floating in his hot tub. Although Mom’s brother-in-law Uncle Stan is a cop, Detective Rodriguez, who is incidentally a very attractive man, still suspects her. When some details of the victim’s past turn up, it would seem Rodriguez’ suspicions may be justified. So Angie & Mel, with the somewhat reluctant help of the bakery’s co-owner and longtime friend (and Angie’s secret desire) Tate, decide to solve the crime. Marty, a senior citizen and new habitue of the cupcakery who wants to win the night on the town lottery to take out his yoga instructor, helps; he’s been eating his way through the cupcakes to earn entries into the drawing.

Melanie Cooper’s mother Joyce goes on a first date but as she gets undressed to go into the hot tub her date is found dead. Joyce becomes the prime suspect. Angie DeLaura is convinced that Tate does not love her as she thinks he loves her friend Melanie so she starts dating a drummer out of a rock band who is the son of the murdered man who is also a murder suspect.
Melanie Cooper and Joe DeLaura (Angie’s brother) start dating but Melanie gets frustrated as their relationship whilst good is too platonic due to so much of Joe’s time is being taken up by the biggest case of his career when they only have just got together. Mel decides that she needs to solve the murder so that her family are able to move on with their life. Mel and Joe’s relationship deepens and I look forward to reading the next book in the series to see what adventures Mel, Joe, Angie and Tate get up to.
