Christmas Cupcakes and a Caper (Death by Cupcake)
by D.E. Haggerty
A label on the cover promises laugh out loud fun and for a story that is a little over 100 pages with three spunky heroines, it definitely makes good on that guarantee.
~I Read What You Write
There are some twists and turns and a bit of a shocker at the end . . . D. E. Haggerty has a new fan of this fun cozy series.
~My Reading Journeys
This book is humorous and kept me engaged from the first page to the last . . . Anna cracks me up – she is petite but a force of nature. Let’s just say you shouldn’t mess with her.
Filled with witty banter, colorful phrases and misdirections, can the women avoid the men attempting to protect them while they get to the bottom of a dead elf delivered to the cupcake shop.
It is always fun to revisit with Callie and her friends and as an additional bonus these a quick reads that are ideal for a commute or whilst waiting for an appointment!
~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog
The easy rapport between the three women is very well written, drawing us into their inner circle of friendship and teamwork. The story is written with the perfect blend of drama and humor–and cupcakes!–
This is a quick, fun read, perfect for getting in the mood for Christmas. It comes complete with seven delicious cupcake recipes as made by Anna in the book. I can’t wait to try them!
It was a short but very funny read, there are some hilarious scenes.

It’s all candy cane cupcakes and peppermint coffee until you find a dead elf on your doorstep.
Only the elf wasn’t a real elf, because elves don’t actually exist – not even at Christmas time. A college student dressed like an elf decided taking a nap in sub-zero winter temps was a good idea. It wasn’t. Anna, the pink-haired baker extraordinaire of Callie’s Cakes, is convinced the student’s death was not an accident. She drags Callie and Kristie along with her as she attempts to discover who killed the elf … um… student.
Will the gals of Callie’s Cakes find the killer before Christmas is ruined?
Cupcakes not included, although you’ll find recipes for all the delicious Christmas cupcakes Anna baked.
About D.E. Haggerty
I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic before returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where, in between tennis matches and failing to save the world, I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.
