McCorrson has spent the last three years building her business, CC’s Simply Cupcakes with her sister gaining a reputation for mouth-watering excellence in their seaside town of Ashton Point. While Charlotte is the master baker, Clair keeps the business side looking sweet and if everything goes as planned, she’ll be more than the girl behind the scenes.

Expanding their business to the nearby town of Watson’s Creek is Clair’s idea, and acquiring the Sweets Mansion is her dream come true, her chance to step out from her sister’s shadow and make it on her own. Clair’s excitement quickly turns sour when she stumbles across the murdered body of local settlement agent.

4 Star Review  - May 04, 2018 Goodreads
I love the name - Cupcakes and Cyanide, it drew me to read this cozy mystery from P.L. Harris. I hadn't read this author before and found I really enjoyed the writing style, the flow of the story and the evolving romance between the 2 main characters.
I won't tell you more - just check it out for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

3Star Review  - May 014, 2018 Goodreads
I enjoyed this short and sweet book - the name itself was so interesting! Anything food related is sure to make me give it a second look at the very least. Plus I do like cozy mysteries. There were a few typos though, else it would have been a 4. for eg, sick instead of sink. Mistakes where it is easy to figure out what the actual word was though, but still it kinda takes away from the flow - this is the type of book you can breeze through, which is just what I was looking for. I liked the main characters - they were well fleshed out for a novella. Basically, I'd like to read more in the series. I like the characters and the premise and that's basically what one looks for in a quick and breezy read.

Cupcakes aren't dangerous, are they? P.L. Harris has written a quirky story that was easily digested. The title itself is as intriguing as the characters. A must read for everyone.
