About the Author
Jenn McKinlay, the New York Times bestselling author of the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries (including Vanilla Beaned, Dark Chocolate Demise, and Sugar and Iced), has baked and frosted cupcakes into the shapes of cats, mice, and outer-space aliens, to name just a few. Writing a mystery series based on one of her favorite food groups (dessert) is as enjoyable as licking the beaters, and she can’t wait to whip up the next one. She is also the author of the Hat Shop Mysteries (Assault and Beret, Copy Cap Murder) and the Library Lover’s Mysteries (Better Late than Never, A Likely Story).
