This is a lighthearted series dealing with Fairy Tale Cupcakes, several romantic relationships, a wonderful kitty, Captain Jack, and delightful characters. This entry, however, puts those favorite folks into dangerous positions. Joe DeLaura is working on a case against a Teflon-type mobster, Frank Tucci, and has pulled away from Mel, the main character. There’s a scary murder at a zombie-walk. Very little lightness in this book, but the plotting is excellent, we glimpse different aspects of the characters, and, as always, Ms. McKinlay ends the story with a cliffhanger — which is why this series should be read in order! Way thumbs up to the writer and her engaging creations.
Dark Chocolate Demise audiobook Series Cupcake Bakery Mystery
Melanie “Mel” Cooper is still devastated by her break-up with Joe DeLaura but tries to keep herself with work at the bakery she owns, Fairy Tale Cupcakes. The Old Town Zombie Walk certainly keeps her busy, not only wearing a costume but serving cupcakes. However, what should be a fun time is ruined when a body is found in a prop casket near their cupcake van – a body that looks a lot like Angie DeLaura – Joe’s sister and Mel’s best friend. Soon it is apparent that, despite Joe’s efforts, those closest to him are in real danger. Can Mel help Joe find a killer without becoming a victim herself?
While I love all of Jenn Mckinlay’s books, I am especially fond of her Cupcake Bakery cozy mystery series and “Dark Chocolate Demise”, the seventh book in the series, did not disappoint me. This book picks up from the cliffhanger ending of “Sugar and Iced” and does a nice job of showing how Mel is dealing with the shock of no longer having Joe in her life. In fact, one of the strongest points in this book is the way McKinlay deals with the characters’ emotions, especially Angie’s emotions as she realizes she may have been the intended murder victim. There is a wonderful blend of humor and suspense in this novel – one minute I was laughing out loud and the next minute I was on the edge of my seat anxiously waiting to see what happened next. The mystery is well plotted with plenty of twists and turns and just when I thought I had something figured out McKinley threw in a plot twist that totally surprised me – this happened more than once and was well done each time.
Audiobook Dark Chocolate Demise by Jenn McKinlay
Old Town Scottsdale is staging its first Zombie Walk, and the area is teeming with costumed zombies. Unlike regular zombies who prefer to feed on brains, these zombies are hungering for comfort and snack foods, so Fairy Tale Bakery has signed up to be one of the event’s vendors. Business is brisk until a woman wearing a blood-stained wedding dress is found in the prop coffin set up near the cupcake van.
As with the other books in this series, the focus is on the characters. The search for the motive and the murderer in this case throws all of them into personal frenzies and tests the strength of their relationships.
The mystery can be solved along with the characters by an observant reader. The murder in this book is in place more as the instigator for other events that affect the characters rather than its most important feature.
This book could be read as a stand-alone mystery, but will have less impact for readers not familiar with the characters and their backgrounds.
A selection of zombie-themed cupcake recipes are included at the end of the book along with an excerpt from the book, A Likely Story (A Library Lover’s Mystery) , a cozy mystery from another of the author’s series.
Recommended for those following the series, but I would recommend those new to the series start from the beginning and read through the earlier books first. The characters will make it worth the time and effort, and make the events and relationships in this book more understandable and engaging.
Audio Dark Chocolate Demise narrated by Susan Boyce
This seventh outing from Jenn McKinlay finds Mel, Angie and the Fairytale Cupcake folks participating in Scottsdale, Arizona’s Old Town Zombie Walk. Mel finds a real dead body in her decorative casket right outside of the bakery truck and goes wild with grief when she thinks it’s Angie. It turns out to be someone who just looks like Angie, but Mel is afraid the hit was personal and the hitman might be coming back to rectify his mistake.
I just can’t get enough of this series. It’s a paperback buy for me, as opposed to an e-book buy. By now I feel like I’m visiting with old friends, and the descriptions of cupcakes (recipes included) make me want to get in the kitchen and bake. I love the recurring characters and their relationships. Mel and her long-term boyfriend Joe are on the outs in this book because he’s prosecuting a dangerous mob case and doesn’t want her to end up as collateral damage. I love the way Mel stands up to Joe in this book and the ending – Wow! Did not see any of that coming.
Highly recommend this series, starting at the beginning because all the books are interrelated and reading the previous ones in order makes this a richer experience.

I have enjoyed the cupcake bakery mystery series. I do get a little frustrated with the main character (Mel), to the point I wonder if I will continue reading the series. Instead of Mel being grateful and understanding that people love her and want to keep her safe, she has the attitude of “you can’t tell me what to do”, and then does stupid things. Then she gets mad at her loved ones because her loved ones get mad that she puts herself in danger. She also has that darn independent female streak so her attitude is “to heck with you, I don’t need you and I’ll do what I want” and I find those attitudes really frustrating and annoying. At least in this book Tate and Angie seem to be “progressing”. Roach returns in this book. The book is an easy read.
