From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns comes the next dangerously delicious Cookies & Chance Mystery...

Sally Muccio’s walk down the aisle might be her last.
The some-time amateur sleuth and full-time bakery owner is finally marrying the man of her dreams. But during a last minute taste testing of their wedding cake, Sally and her fiancé are witnesses—and almost victims!—of a random shooting. At least they think it’s random, until an original fortune cookie message proves otherwise. Is someone after Sally? And why does the mysterious shooter want to ice the baker? Sal tries to proceed with caution, but when someone close to her is attacked, all bets are off. She'll do whatever it takes to bring this monster to justice, even if it means sacrificing herself in the process.
Can Sal make it to the church on time…and alive?

If you aren't a fan of Catherine Bruns and her Cookies and Chance Mystery series....what are you waiting for ??? Sally and Mike are getting married and you won't want to miss their big day !! Frosted with Revenge is the fourth book in this series and if you have been reading them from the first one, you are totally in love with Sally, Mike and the rest of the crew. And you are well invested in their lives and you will not be able to resist the urge to continue reading until the last page. Sally and Mike are getting married but as they are planning their big day someone else has other plans for wanting her dead !!! Now you know that Sally can take care of herself but in Frosted with Revenge she is pushed to her limits !! And it all starts when her and Mike are at the bakery for the taste testing for their wedding cake ( I know....why isn't her best friend and partner in the cookie shop Josie making the cake ?? ). As Mike is outside taking a phone call another bride-to-be stands in front of Sally in the window and is shot !! So instead of the week before their wedding being a happy time for them, they are forced to change all their plans and try to find out who wants Sally dead before someone else gets killed. The Cookies and Chance Mystery series is more than just a's a family !! Once you read the first book, you are hooked and feel like a member of the crazy Muccio family. So when you do get to Frosted with Revenge, make sure you are somewhere comfortable with a box of tissues because you will not be able to hold in the emotions that arise !!

“Frosted With Revenge” earns 5/5 Red Velvet Wedding Cakes with Vanilla Frosting! Everything is coming up ‘roses’ for Sally Muccio (Mooch-EE-o) and her bakery Sally’s Samples. A recent fire caused Sally to relocate, but regulars are back, business is booming, and the fortune cookies continue to be…cryptic.The very long awaited wedding between Sally and Mike is only a week away, and Sally’s mother didn’t take “we only want a small family gathering” for an answer, so Sally is very stressed and resigned to deal with all the pre-wedding hoopla, including a last minute wedding cake tasting. However while enjoying some mouth-watering wedding cake samples, Bridezilla Alexandra Walston enters demanding immediate service. “Do you know who I am?!” Trying to help appease her ‘zilla’ demands Sally offers her a taste of her slice of raspberry torte…CRASH! Glass shatters, spraying everywhere, and Alexandra falls dead…a bullet expertly placed between her eyes! The investigation points to several suspects who would have wanted Alexandra dead, however, later, a shower gift note offers a different take on the murder, “Bang, bang. Next time I won’t miss.” Catherine Bruns has done it again…baked up another delicious, suspense-filled mystery! The fourth book in her Cookies & Chance series just maybe the best one yet. Fans will be thrilled that the wedding is set, the bakery is in full swing, and another mystery puts them on the edge of their comfy chair….twists, turns, and more than a few possible solutions. However, newbies are not overlooked because enough background is provided to keep them seriously engaged in trying to determine who has motive and opportunity. The Muccio family continues to be explored with dad’s quirky “Father Death” blog oddly as comic relief, but family secrets being revealed and a mother/daughter dynamic causes serious angst. But with all that Catherine shows that the family bond, including those coming into the family, is strong easily leading to an interesting debate about “loss” and “moving on.” Catherine Bruns doesn’t forget to treat us ‘cozi-holics’ by enriching our experience with some delightful, easy-to-follow recipes for Maamoul Cookies (traditional Middle Eastern Cookies), Grandma Rosa’s Butterscotch Parfait and Zucchini Bread, and Josie’s Cookies ’n Crème Cake created as Sally’s wedding cake. Delicious! Dramatic! Definitely Entertaining!

The books in the Cookies & Chance Mysteries get tastier and tastier with every new title! I’ve read this series since the first book, TASTES LIKE MURDER, and I always look forward to each new title. FROSTED WITH REVENGE was worth the wait and more! (Although, I’d be thrilled with, let’s say, one a month. That’s not too much to ask, is it, Ms. Bruns? ) My very favorite scenes in the series take place in the cookie shop. With the descriptions from author Catherine Bruns, I have a perfect vision of the entire shop. And I can always smell cookies baking when I’m reading those scenes. I adore protagonist, Sally “Sal” Muccio and her BFF, Josie Sullivan. They play so well off each other, be it in the cookie shop, Sally’s Samples, or out about town. Their scenes always make me laugh out loud, mostly due to something Josie has said. Especially when Josie has a go at regular customer, cranky Mrs. Gavelli. As with the first three books in the series, FROSTED WITH REVENGE has a great whodunit that really kept me guessing. Author Bruns always delivers a mystery that has more twists and turns than a cookie has sprinkles or chips. There were also a few surprises in this story that had nothing to do with the mystery end of things. There was always something going on that made it impossible to set the book aside for even a moment. For me, this was a read in one setting book. Be sure to check out the back of FROSTED WITH REVENGE for some great recipes. I’m not sure which tasty sounding treat I want to make first! If you are a fan of Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen titles, or just in general a culinary mystery fan, you are going to love FROSTED WITH REVENGE, and the entire Cookies & Chance Mystery series!

This delicious cozy mystery with dollops of humor made my mouth water with the yummy pastries, the yummy hero and the yummy mystery. Loved Sally and her cast of crazy friends and family. Got hungry reading it and wanted to go out and buy some pastries. Just when I thought the mystery had been solved, the author threw in a twist that delighted me. Definitely a fun read.

Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite Sally, or Sal as her friends and family call her, just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. It’s not that she tries to find trouble wherever she goes; it’s just that trouble always seems to find her. And when that trouble means a threat to her life? Well, things do get a little sticky, and not just because her best friend, Josie, who is also her partner at Sally’s Samples Bakeshop, uses her best batch of whoopee pies as missiles to slather a potential threat to Sal’s life. It all started when Sal went to test cake samples for her wedding cake, which is another complicated story within the plot, and another bride-to-be is shot dead right next to her. The plot only thickened after that, as Sal realized that she had been the intended target and, although there is only a week until her wedding, there is a growing list of suspects out there who might want this bride dead before her wedding day. Catherine Bruns's mystery, Frosted With Revenge, is another “A Cookies and Chance Mystery,” which partners the sweets of a bakery with the mystery of murder and mayhem. With delightful characters, the plot develops with heightening tension as the killer gets closer to the target, Sally, the bride-to-be and the owner of Sally’s Samples Bakeshop. A sprinkling of humor eases the tension, only to have it thicken as the plot develops further. With multiple twists and turns, and lots of sweet surprises, this is a delightful read and a good mystery.
