 Cupid, Cupcakes and Carnage

Hart of Texas Murder Mysteries #5

Kaz Delaney

Reviewed by Helen

I love Rosie Hart and have done since the first book in this fabulous series, Kaz Delaney has added more twists than a twisty mountain road in this one, she has pulled me in again as Rosie does her best to ensure that her fianc√© Jonah’s name comes out clean when there is not one but two bodies found buried on his patio.

It is just about Valentine’s Day and the small town of Airlie Falls is gearing up for their full week celebrations ending in the markets and Rosie is flat out keeping up with all of the luscious deserts and treats that she is making for the markets and orders, let alone the organizing for the other events, so the last thing she really wants to be doing is investigating the death of two people found on Jonah’s place, but she is determined that she will get to the bottom of this, after all she knows how it feels to be linked to a murder.

Her friend Sheriff Kinead has finally allowed Rosie to add to the investigation when Rosie starts her investigation and they decide to share the clues they uncover, first they need to go back ten years ago when Jonah first bought the property and look at the previous owner and realise that she has been missing all of these years. Of course the Fab four who live at Riverbend are very willing to help as well and there are plenty of clues and people to question, will Rosie put herself in danger and will she keep up with all of her fabulous cooking?

I loved this one from page one, I loved being back in Airlie Falls and catching up with the wonderful people who live there, picking up a book in this series is like walking into a family reunion and it had everything a great cosy mystery should have, it is witty filled with mystery a touch of romance and it had me guessing till the very end and wow I didn’t see that coming. I would highly recommend this it is a fabulous story. I can’t wait to read the next one.

My thanks to the publisher for my digital copy to read and review.
