When a breakup via cupcake threatens to crumble their friend’s life for good, Mel and Angie race to solve the murder as this New York Times bestselling series continues…

Love is in the air at Fairy Tale Cupcakes as Angie prepares for her wedding, but co-owner, Mel, is preparing for a breakup. Her old friend, Diane Earnest, is dumping her fiancé after discovering he’s only marrying her for her money. She wants Mel to personally deliver a batch of caramel breakup cupcakes to the louse and give her a play-by-play of his reaction.

When Mel finally tracks the man down, the look on his face isn’t the reaction she was expecting: he’s dead. After the police arrive and see the incriminating cupcakes, Diane becomes their prime suspect. If she hopes to taste freedom again, Mel and Angie must make sure the real killer gets their just desserts…

Tina's Review

Reuniting with my old friends Mel, Tate and Angie I knew I would be in for a fun, entertaining read filled with Mel's wild shenanagigans to solve a murder and much to my surprise Angie's bridezilla moments.

Over the top and wacky characters and the cupcakes don't hurt either.Author Jenn McKinlay manages to come up with a way out there setting for a murder that had me laughing out loud and she also managed to tug at my heart strings with some crazy characters along the way.

Caramel Crush was filled with romance of a magical and left me very emotional. The murderer had it coming and the surprising twist at the end that made my heart sink made me dying to read the next book in the series,Wedding Cake Crumble.
