Cozy Mystery/Mystery/Short Reads
If you like quirky loveable characters, engaging reads with a dash of humour and mystery, then you’ll love Polly Holmes’ Cupcakes and Cyanide book.
Welcome to Ashton Point. One sweet taste could be her last.
Charlotte McCorrson has spent her entire life building her business, CC’s Simply Cupcakes. The town of Ashton Point is her home and she’s garnered a reputation of stellar service and delightful pastries, one nibble at a time. But everything isn’t as sweet in the sleepy, coastal town as Charlotte would like to think. She is in for a rude awakening and no amount of sugar will make this medicine go down any smoother.
After catering a large town-wide event, Ashton Point’s morning newspaper fills Charlotte McCorrson with an icy sense of dread. The headlines scream Cupcake Killer! and put the blame squarely on CC’s Simply Cupcakes. When bodies begin to pile up behind her confectionary goodies, Charlotte must prove that while her cupcakes are delicious, they aren’t literally to die for—before she ends up in jail for a crime she didn’t commit.
This is Book 1 in The Cupcake Capers Series and may contain elements of humour, drama and danger. However, it will definitely not contain any of the following potentially lethal substances:
Swearing or profanity.
Gore or graphic scenes.
Cliff-hangers or unsolved endings.

I was looking through my TBR for a quick read and decided on Cupakes and Cyanide as a quick read. It was exactly what I was looking for. A quick read and cozy mystery. Seems like a cute series. Good writing.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Polly Holmes is the cheeky, sassy alter ego of Amazon best selling author, P.L. Harris. When she’s not writing her next romantic suspense novel as P.L. Harris, she is planning the next murder in one of Polly’s cozy mysteries.
According to Polly, the best part about writing cozy mysteries is researching. Finding the best way to hook the reader, a great way to murder someone, a plethora of suspects and of course a good dose of sweet treats thrown in for good measure.
Polly lives not far from the beach in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia with her Bishion Frise, Bella. When she’s not writing you can find her sipping coffee in her favorite cafe, watching reruns of Murder, She Wrote or taking long walks along the beach soaking up the fresh salty air.
