The Cupcake Caper, excerpt

CozyRomantic  Mystery: a nerdy scientist in search of the perfect cupcake recipe finds herself in over her head when her boss turns up dead and she's a suspect.

Science is about solving puzzles. Why should solving a murder be any different?

Dr. Bree Watson (aka Gabriella Catherine Mayfield-Watson) is comfortable solving chemistry problems. She isn’t comfortable finding her boss dead and being a suspect in his poisoning. Now she’s juggling:

• A sexy marketing manager—who may, or may not—be a contract killer.

• A handsome lead detective whose interest goes beyond the case.

• The dead man’s cranky cat.

• A goose-chasing dog in hot water with an animal rights group.

• The search for the perfect cupcake recipe.

• And, of course, someone who wants her out of the picture.

And she thought getting a Ph.D. was hard.
