Things are going great for Lexy Baker. She's finally opened her dream bakery, gotten rid of her cheating boyfriend and settled into her grandmothers house with her perky dog Sprinkles at her side. But her blissful life doesn't last long. When her ex boyfriend is found poisoned with cupcakes from her bakery, Lexy finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation headed up by her hunky neighbor detective Jack Perillo. With the help of a gang of iPad toting, would-be detective grandmothers, Lexy decides to take it upon herself to find the real murderer in order to clear her name and get her bakery back in business. As things heat up on the murder trail, in the kitchen and between Lexy and the hunky detective, it's a race against time to put the real murderer behind bars and get back to baking. Will Lexy get her man? >> Includes the recipe for Lexy's famous cupcake tops! (This is book 1 in the Lexy Baker Cozy Mystery Series, but you don't have to read them in order if you don't want too!)

Protagonist: 10/10 Secondary Characters: 10/10 Mystery: 5/10 Humor: 6/10 Pace: 10/10 A nice quick read! I thought it was a fun story. Writing was good and the pacing was fast. Just enough humor to keep me interested, although I do wish there had been more. The characters are fleshed out and likable. This was just the book I needed to pull me back from the edge of a reading slump. Light and fluffy fun on every page! I was able to finish it in just a couple of nights and it didn't require much brain power. A great book to read at the beach or to unwind with before bed. I highly recommend. I can't wait to continue on with the series! And can I just say how freaking awesome this cover is?! I love it!

I enjoyed this cozy read about Lexy and her sexy love interest, Jack. I like the secondary characters like her grandmother & her friends who are always available to help Lexy solve the murder/murders she finds herself involved in. Nice, relaxing & fun to read in between the heavier suspenseful book. Will follow the series. JudyE

This is the first book in a series. It is only 70 pages of story. The rest is general information and the author patting herself on the back, all added together, equal 98 pages. First this book is silliness on all levels. It is cheesy, shallow and might have been a mid term story for a high school jr in a literture class. The editing was pretty good. It is a mystery romance. A police officer and a baker are the main characters. This book is so unrealistic, it makes Jack and the Beanstalk serious reading material. There are no adult topics. The cup cake tops made me laugh out loud. Well, at least the author has a sense of humor. Alas, I do not think she meant to be funny. This book is more for the age group 13-16 than adults. Chick lit. I did not like this cozy mystery at all. It was too juvenile for me. AD

Very disappointed in this book. I did not realize this was a novella or short story and the story line was not realistic at all. I love the cozy sleuth novels and realize they do not always follow actual police policies but you had to suspend all police procedure in this and the ''love'' story between the two main characters happens almost instantaneous. Did not enjoy at all.

This is a delightful humorous mystery that moves quickly. All the characters are entertaining. Well written. Look forward to next book in series.

Great short cozy mystery. Read this in one sitting. A bit of a surprise at the end re: the killer. Loved the main characters. If you're looking for complex literature, this is not the book series for you. However, it's a lighthearted fun read - and the book was free. Doesn't get much better than that.

Novelette for leisurely reading. Liked the main character Lexy and her canine Sprinkles. Was pleasantly surprised to find a recipe for chocolate tops at the end of the book.

This series has great titles, but if the storylines are this simple, they aren't worth the effort

It was short and felt rushed but the story was good and had potential.

Killer Cupcakes is a fun, believable story with just enough romance. I read it in one sitting & am looking forward to reading about more of Lexy’s life. The perfect cozy little mystery!

I've never read a book by this author that I didn't simply adore! A very "sweet" story filled with suspense, and a fine introduction to yet another successful series - something Leighann Dobbs is adept at.

I think this would have been a very good book. There were ten blank pages that made me have guess the story line. Guess that what you get from a free book. It does not make me what to actually buy one of the books.
