Today I'm reviewing Going, Going, Ganache by Jenn McKinlay.
More after the jump!
Summary from Goodreads: 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.
Review: So this book was better than Death by the Dozen, although at this point I'm not all that crazy about Joe as Mel's one true love. All things considered though, this book was a lot better paced than some of the other ones and of course the recipes which I am always excited to try out! One day I'll have to write a blog post with pictures of my attempts to recreate some of the cupcakes. Recommend.
