Synopsis of Book: 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 the 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 face down 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.
Why I Read This Book: I have have kept up with this series and read it for a cozy challenge I am doing
What I liked: I continue to like how close the girls are and how they have become close with Oz and Marty as well. I kind of like the Rodeo theme to this book.
What I didn't Liked: Even though I liked the Rodeo theme, I was not sure I liked it for this book. I like when they are in their town and the murder happens.
Overall Impression: I overall enjoyed this book, but still am not sure what I think of a Rodeo owner just happening by them and asking them to sell cupcakes at the rodeo when he just met them and how close they became so fast. I still love the whole cupcake theme and loved how they added the cupcake pops into this story since they are the new rage in cupcakes. I don't want to give away any spoilers but I loved the end of the book and what a way to end it and make us wait for the next one. I thought I had the killer pegged but ended up being totally wrong and never saw real killer coming. This was a fast read for me and glad I read it. I am going to give this one 4 stars.
