LET'S GET COZY! DYING FOR A CUPCAKE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
DYING FOR A CUPCAKE
A Deveraux's Dime Store Mystery
BY DENISE SWANSON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Devereaux “Dev” Sinclair hosts a cupcake contest at her five-and-dime store, she discovers that someone is just dying to win…

Kizzy Cutler finds it so delicious to be back in her hometown of Shadow Bend, Missouri, that she seems to have forgotten why she fled twenty years ago. For now, she’s excited to kick off her new line of cupcakes with a competition, which Dev has agreed to host in her shop. But before the first yummy cupcake is even baked, Kizzy’s assistant Fallon dies from a mysterious ailment.

While the medical examiner attempts to discover what killed Fallon, Kizzy declares that the show must go on. However after Kizzy escapes several near misses, Dev is convinced that someone in Shadow Bend has it in for the cupcake queen. Is the secret from her past so dark someone still wants to kill her for it?

With a list of not-so-sweet suspects, Dev’s in a race against the timer to solve the murder before someone else gets iced…
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Denise Swanson has worked as a school psychologist for 17 years. She lives in Illinois with her husband, Dave, and their cool black cat, Boomerang.

I like the name Shadow Bend for the town's name. Sounds like a small town. Cupcakes and someone dying mysteriously at a five and dime store. A five and dime sounds like great venue.
