Book Review: Cupcakes and Casualties

Cupcakes and Casualties (Peridale Cafe Cozy Mystery Book 11)
by Agatha Frost

Published: March 2018 by PinkTree Publishing Ltd
Format: ebook (Kindle Unlimited)
The residents of Peridale don't like change, so when the famous actress, Candy Bennett, rolls into the village to demolish a historic cottage, things don't go as smoothly as she would have hoped. With the 'Peridale Preservation Society' protesting her plans to build a modern home on the land, things quickly turn sour. Days into the project, Candy's lead builder, Shane, is murdered and the task to solve the mystery once again falls into Julia's lap.

Did one of the protestors kill the builder to make a statement, or was he murdered by someone from within his own team? With the preservation society, the actress, the architect, and the builders all keeping secrets, Julia soon has her hands full gathering evidence, but it's a familiar-looking new arrival in the village that commands her attention. Julia's life is torn apart when she learns of the stranger's true identity, but will she be able to focus on the challenging case before another body turns up? The only certainty is that Julia's life will never be the same again.
A fun, enjoyable read that kept me guessing right up to the final reveal.

This was my first Peridale Cafe book, but that didn’t matter as it was explained who all the characters were and their relationships to each other.

Loved the characters and can’t wait to visit Peridale again.

I enjoyed spending time with Julia and the residents of  Peridale and give this book 5 stars.

Thank you Ms Frost for providing an Advance Review Copy.
