A cozy mystery with a heap of laughs, a generous portion of romance, and just a smidgeon of suspense.

Callie’s life is rather awesome. She owns a successful bakery and teaches German literature at the local university. There’s just one tiny problem. She has no self-confidence when it comes to her body. And then there’s the little matter of her being accused of murdering her pole dancing instructor. There’s no way Callie’s going to risk losing her teaching position and thus she embarks, with her best baker bud Anna, on a journey to discover the real killer. Between stripper auditions and a detective who insists Callie is the woman of his dreams, it’s a roller coaster adventure. Cupcakes not included

***Christine – #NerdGirlPixie’s  Review***
Never Trust a Skinny Cupcake Baker, is D. E. Haggerty’s first novel in the Death by Cupcake Series. As an opener, it’s wonderful.

I loved Callie, and her everyday, every woman issues. Her “Detective Hottie” sounds hot as well. If I have any complaint, I didn’t feel like I knew him well enough.This cost me 1/2 a star, for a total of 4 1/2 stars rounded to 5. I’m very hopeful we learn a great deal more about him in future stories from this series. I know I’ll be looking for them!
