“McKinlay’s easy way of writing and affable characters make it easy to fall in love with this book”
~ Under the Covers

CARAMEL CRUSH is the ninth book in the Cupcake Bakery Mystery series by Jenn McKinlay but it’s the first book that I’ve tried from this series. Luckily, I had no trouble falling into this series. Upon starting, I knew right away that this was my type of mystery series. It’s cute and often silly, but there’s a great balance of mystery and intrigue as well. I have no trouble falling in line with the characters and getting lost in the story.

McKinlay’s easy way of writing and affable characters make it easy to fall in love with this book. This particular book has a emphasis on love and romance, something I feel that I know well since I’m a Romance reader at heart, so I felt like this was the perfect path for me to take to get into this series. With the heroine’s best friends getting married and other couples walking onto the pages, there’s a lot of baking for lovers going on here. But what’s interesting is Angie’s old friend, Diane, has asked her to bake her finest batch of cupcakes so that she can break up with her fiancé after she realizes that he’s only marrying her for her money. It’s a strange concept, but one that is very interesting. I think it’s a very cute way of bringing the cupcakes into the mix and I have to appreciate an author who is willing to take alternative, unusual routes to write their books.

After reading CARAMEL CRUSH, there’s no doubt that I will be going back to read the rest of the series. I can’t get enough of these fun-loving characters and I look forward to reading more of Jenn McKinlay.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
