Cupcakes, pizza, a Norwegian Forest Cat, and … murder!


Zoe, cousin and assistant to Lauren Crenshaw, cupcake baker and owner of the Norwegian Forest Cat Café in sunny Northern California, enters a local pizza making competition.


Lauren, and her gorgeous Norwegian Forest Cat, Annie, hope she wins.

While Zoe practices all week long, Lauren makes dozens of red velvet cupcakes for the event.


Zoe doesn’t win first place, but after the competition, she and Lauren find the winner – murdered!


Who wanted the victim dead?


His ex-wife who also competed?


A bossy female competitor?


The organizer of the event – did he recognize the man from his past?


Even Lauren and Zoe are under suspicion.


Meanwhile, Lauren and Annie investigate sewing, with surprising results!


Lauren’s romance with Mitch progresses at a steady rate, and so does Zoe’s with Chris.


But when they confront the killer, can they escape in the nick of time? Or will they have served their last red velvet cupcake?


This is a humorous, clean, cat cozy mystery with female amateur sleuths, cupcake talk – and Annie, the Norwegian Forest Cat!
