Cupcake caterer Emory Martinez is hosting a Halloween bash alongside her octogenarian employer, Tillie. With guests dressed in elaborate costumes, the band is rocking, the cocktails are flowing, and tempers are flaring when the hired Bavarian Barmaid tries to hook a rich, hapless husband. Except one of her targets happens to be Emory’s brother-in-law, which bodes ill for his pregnant wife. When Emory tracks down the distraught barmaid, instead of finding the young woman in tears, she finds her dead. Can she explain to the new detective on the scene why the Bavarian Barmaid was murdered in Emory’s bathtub with Emory’s Poison Apple Cake Pops stuffed into her mouth?

With an angry pregnant sister to contend with, she promises to clear her brother-in-law’s name. As Emory starts asking questions and tracking down the identity of the costumed guests, she finds reasons to suspect her brother-in-law has been hiding a guilty secret. Her search leads her to a web of blackmail and betrayal amongst the posh setting of the local country club crowd. Can Emory sift through the lies she’s being told and find the killer? She’ll need to step up her investigation before another victim is sent to the great pumpkin patch in the sky.

Includes spooky Halloween recipes!

  REVIEW
 *I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

This definitely put me in the Halloween mood. Emory is getting ready for a party hosted by Rookie to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Her sister is catering and of course Emory is making the desserts. It all sounds so yummy but the candy apple cake pops really stick out. Not only because they sound delicious but also because they are found stuffed in the mouth of dead woman found in Emory's bathtub. This is bad enough but her brother in law had a huge public fight with the woman shortly before hand. With her twin sister pregnant things get emotional and dire fast. Add in a new detective and her crush returned to the area to make things even more chaotic. The secrets start coming out and Emory rushes to figure it all out. With characters you can relate to, situations that bring about all sorts of emotions, yummy food, and keep you guessing mystery you won't be able tout this cozy down. Makes for a fantastically fun read. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.

  3. Love the adorable cover and the story so I'm not surprised at the wonderful reviews this book has recieved!! Halloween themed books always draw me in and this murder is not only mixed with family but happens at a Halloween bash. The Barmaid dead in the bathtub with the "poisoned" apple pop shoved in her mouth creates an awesome murder scene in this readers mind! Then we are served up with blackmail and more! Can't wait to read this wonderful treat for Halloween!!
