Death by the Dozen by Jenn McKinlay
The Food Festival in Scottsdale is holding a pastry bake-off with a $10K prize so Melanie and Angie enter the Fairy Tale Cupcakes bakery in the contest. Surprised to find out that her mentor, Vic Mazzotta, is one of the judges, Melanie is devastated when he is found dead before the competition begins.
As the contest proceeds, the danger to Melanie and Angie increases not just from their competitors but the killer apparently is threatening them too.
I love the characters, the food descriptions and the mystery! Will be reading the next one soon!
