Obviously, the best part is when she is suspected of murdering her ex-boyfriend because of the poisoned cupcakes. But the Ladies Detective Club? So a bunch of old ladies rotting away in a retirement home is going to solve this crime? Doubtful.
Overall, the story was anticlimactic, but, on the plus side, it is a light and airy read. And isin’t that how cupcakes should be?
It’s a quick, little mystery—good to kill an hour or two—but it doesn’t make me want to follow the series.
My rating: 3 stars
