Publisher's Summary

A Killer Cupcake is the first in Beachfront Bakery series and is the debut novel in a charming and hilarious new cozy mystery series by number one best-selling author Fiona Grace, whose best-selling Murder in the Manor (A Lacey Doyle Cozy Mystery) has nearly 200 five-star reviews.

Allison Sweet, 34, a sous chef in Los Angeles, has had it up to here with demeaning customers, her demanding boss, and her failed love life. After a shocking incident, she realizes the time has come to start life afresh and follow her lifelong dream of moving to a small town and opening a bakery of her own. 

When Allison spots a charming, vacant storefront on the boardwalk near Venice, she wonders if she could really start life anew. Feeling like it’s a sign and a time to take a chance in life, she goes for it. Yet, Allison did not anticipate the wild ride ahead of her: the boardwalk filled with fun and outrageous characters is pulsing with life - from the Italian pizzeria owners on either side of her who vie for her affection, the fortune tellers, and scheming rival bakery owner nearby.

Allison yearns to just focus on her delicious new pastry recipes and keep her struggling bakery afloat - but when a murder occurs right near her shop, everything changes. Implicated, her entire future at stake, Allison has no choice but to investigate to clear her name. As an orphaned dog wanders into her life, a devoted new sidekick with a knack for solving mysteries, she starts her search. 

Will they find the killer? And can her struggling bakery survive?

A hilarious cozy mystery series, packed with twists, turns, romance, travel, food and unexpected adventure, the Beachfront Bakery series will keep you laughing and listening late into the night as you fall in love with an endearing new character who will capture your heart.

Oh the ANNOYING Australian accent

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you are going to do accents please get it right. I"m Australian and there isn't an Australian who wouldn't know how to pronounce BONDI the most famous beach in Australia!!! Every time I heard the accent i just cringed and it totally upset the enjoyment.. Plus Ulka read very fast and to start off it sounded very aggressive... it was a very pleasant story as I would listen to it as I did my housework....... By the way your pronounce Bondi as Bond-I not Bondy.
