**GIVEAWAY ENDED**

**GOING, GOING, GANACHE**

**BY JENN McKINLAY**

**ABOUT THE BOOK:**

**A new Cupcake Bakery Mystery from**

*New York Times*bestselling author Jenn McKinlay is icing on the cupcake!**After a cupcake-flinging fiasco at a photo shoot for a local magazine, Melanie Cooper and Angie DeLaura agree to make amends by hosting a weeklong corporate boot camp at Fairy Tale Cupcakes. The idea is the brainchild of billionaire Ian Hannigan, new owner of SWS (Southwest Style), a lifestyle magazine that chronicles the lives of Scottsdale’s rich and famous. He’s assigned his staff to a team-building week of making cupcakes for charity.**

**It’s clear that the staff would rather be doing just about anything other than frosting baked goods. But when the magazine’s creative director is found murdered outside the bakery, Mel and Angie have a new team-building exercise—find the killer before their business goes AWOL.**

*INCLUDES SCRUMPTIOUS RECIPES*

**ABOUT THE AUTHOR:**

**Jenn McKinlay is what is known as a dessert-freakosaurus. She has been known to eat leftover birthday cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the frozen top tier of her wedding cake didn’t stand a chance of seeing its first anniversary. Luckily, her husband is more of a salt guy. Since the arrival of the hooligans (her sons), she has honed her culinary skills to include cupcakes and has baked and frosted cupcakes into the shape of cats, mice and outerspace aliens to name just a few. Writing a mystery series based upon one of her favorite food groups (cupcakes) is as enjoyable as licking the beater and she can’t wait to whip up the next one. She is the author of another mystery series under the name**

*Lucy Lawrence*and lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with her musician husband Chris, their two sons, two cats, one dog and one fish.

**Pseudonym for Lucy Lawrence.**

**AN EXCERPT FROM**

*GOING, GOING, GANACHE:*

*Chapter One*

“No, I’m not feeling it,” Amy Pierson said. “Do it again, and this time try to give it that southwestern city-girl flare. This photo shoot is for Southwest Style magazine, after all.”

“No, I’m not feeling it,” Amy Pierson said. “Do it again, and this time try to give it that southwestern city-girl flare. This photo shoot is for Southwest Style magazine, after all.”

*Angie DeLaura looked at Melanie Cooper as if to ask if she could please hurl a cupcake at the bossy butt in the couture suit. Mel gave a slight shake of her blond head in the negative. She didn’t want to move too much and have Amy yell at her again.*

*It was mid-October in Scottsdale, Arizona, and although the sun was hot the breeze was cool, keeping the inordinate amount of makeup Mel had on from melting off her face. She and Angie were outside their bakery in the small patio area, posing for a picture to run alongside the piece that had been written about them for an upcoming issue of South¬west Style, the premiere magazine about urban living in the desert.*

*What Mel had assumed would be a staff photographer snapping a picture of them behind the counter in the bakery had turned into a full-on spread, featuring Mel and Angie in poofy retro-fifties skirts, with crinolines, and starched cot¬ton blouses with pearls.***To finish reading this excerpt, visit the author's website HERE.**

As a child, she wanted to be a jockey. Her mom let her have riding lessons knowing she was too tall. She is six feet tall...just a bit taller than most jockeys.
