I found Sprinkle with Murder on my public library's website for Kindle books. Unfortunately, with my library, it seems they have many books that come later in a series but few with the entire series. Since this was "book one" in a series, I figured I'd give it a go.
We're introduced immediately to Melanie and Angie, two childhood friends, now thirty-somethings, who have left previous careers (a marketing exec and a school teacher) to open a cupcake bakery. They're bank-rolled, by the third friend in the trio, an old-money, filthy rich guy, Tate, who now operates his family's financial investment firm. And you guessed it, all them are highly qualified to investigate murders.
When I tell you this book is so completely predictable (I picked out the victim and the murderer before the crime was ever committed), I'm being kind. Seriously, so formulaic, I could have written it and yet... I finished the entire book (okay - it only took a few hours) and I've put the second book on hold. Why? There are cupcake recipes at the end!! I'm waiting for Becky to get home to bake them for me.
Besides everyone needs a simplistic book every now and again, don't we?
