Red Velvet Revenge
#55 Book Read in 2012
Red Velvet Revenge by Jenn McKinlay
This book is the fourth installment in one of my favorite cozy mystery series. In this book, Mel and Angie decide to bring their cupcake van to a rodeo to sell their cupcakes. As always when they are involved, there is drama at the rodeo and someone turns up dead. Mel begins to investigate the death and of course gets herself in trouble. Along with the murder mystery, the romance of Mel and Joe moves forward. Angie and Tate's unspoken love for each other moves forward in its own way as well. Along for the ride are Oz and Marty.
I enjoy this series. The characters are interesting and I love how they all care for each other. There is a good balance between mystery and romance, with humor thrown in for good measure. I did miss Captain Jack's antics in this book. Hopefully in the next one, he gets more page time.
I highly recommend this series.
