Cupcake Conundrum

Cupcake Conundrum by Dola Basu Singh

Welcome to Marble Hills. A small town with big secrets, and locals who can murder to keep them.

After being cheated out of her business by her ex-fiancé, Tara Sen moves back home with her golden retriever Sherlock. When she’s chosen to compete in India's most famous reality TV show Top Baker, she knows winning the bake-off and the prize money can help reopen her late mother's bakery.

But when a judge snubs her cupcakes and drops dead after eating them, Tara becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation. With her bakery about to go out of business, Tara knows she can’t wait for the police to serve up the answers.

Can the human-canine team sniff out the unsavory killer and save Tara from going to prison?

Cupcake Conundrum offers good, clean fun and absolutely no cliffhangers. If you like cozy mysteries with sassy animals, eccentric characters, exotic locations, and tasty treats, you will love this mouth-watering whodunit.
