April 6th's Can't Wait Wednesday

 I'm back this Wednesday with another entry for Can't Wait Wednesday, the weekly event where we post about books we can't wait to read.

This week, I'm highlighting Strawberried Alive by Jenn McKinlay.

Since this is the fourteenth book in Jenn's popular Cupcake Bakery series, I'm not the only one who can't wait for it to come out.

Here's the official blub:

The crew from the Fairy Tale Cupcakes shop risks getting burned when they set out to find a murderer who is terrorizing their town

Life is smooth as buttercream at the Fairy Tale Cupcakes bakery, and newlyweds Mel and Joe are stopping to smell the flours. But things start to crumble one night when an unknown gunman takes a shot at Mel. Though the bullets miss their mark, the cupcake crew goes on high alert to figure out who would want to kill a small-town baker, and why.

When more business owners are attacked, things turn fatal, and locals begin to wonder if the killer could be one of their own. Every shop owner in town starts to fear it’s only a matter of time before they too become victims of the mystery murderer. Despite the cupcake crew's superb baking skills, it will be anything but a piece of cake to catch the killer, as they try to prevent anyone else from being berried.

I really can't tell you how much I love this series and look forward to returning to visit the characters when each one comes out.  And yes, my love is very much about the characters.  Yes, the cupcakes always sound divine (and the recipes look scrumptious, although I have yet to try any of them).  The plots are fun, too.

The book comes out May 3rd, and I just snagged my ARC from Netgalley, so I am planning to review it on May 5th.

What are you looking forward to this week?
