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 20 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.

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....

Cozy chick-lit mystery

Cozy mystery in the chick-lit manner. Lots of female characters but some are a bit too shallow and stereotypical. Entertaining.

I love Denise Swanson!!

The narrator was great and the book was fantastic! I love that I can listen when my kids are around and not worry about them hearing "bad words" or "sex scenes." She is one of my favorite authors!

Dimestore fun with Dev again!

What did you like most about Dying for a Cupcake?

The setting

What other book might you compare Dying for a Cupcake to, and why?

Any of Denise Swanson's book series. They all have great characters and setting with a strong female narrator and great side kicks.

What about Maia Guest’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed how she portrayed each character.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really but I really enjoyed it all.

Any additional comments?

This is a great series and it is not necessary to begin with the first book.
