Description:

A cozy mystery with a heap of laughs, a generous portion of romance, and just a smidgeon of suspense.

Callie’s life is rather awesome. She owns a successful bakery and teaches German literature at the local university. There’s just one tiny problem. She has no self-confidence when it comes to her body. And then there’s the little matter of her being accused of murdering her pole dancing instructor. There’s no way Callie’s going to risk losing her teaching position and thus she embarks, with her best baker bud Anna, on a journey to discover the real killer. Between stripper auditions and a detective who insists Callie is the woman of his dreams, it’s a roller coaster adventure. Cupcakes not included.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Callie who is working in her bakery shop and teaching at the local college while her co-worker and friend Anna tries to get Callie to spice up her non-existent love life.  Callie keeps getting asked out by local hot police officer Ben she can't seem to bring herself to say yes to his various dates.  When she decides to go with Anna to work out she faces her toughest competition in the name of Dolly who is rude and obnoxious beyond belief.  When Dolly winds up dead the pressure is for Callie to clear her name and get her teaching job reinstated.  How will Callie get the killer and get her job back from suspension?

This book was great you got to meet Callie, Anna, and their friends and co-workers and see what they are like.  I enjoyed the relationship between Callie and Anna and watching the relationship with Ben grow.  Such a great fabulous story!
