Independently Published (November 1, 2019) 
Number of Pages: 80

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.
My Review
It was a short but very funny read, there are some hilarious scenes.
Anna, Callie and Kristie are very busy producing cupcakes and cookies for the holiday season when they find an elf on their door. At first they think he's drunk but they soon find out he's dead. He's a Callie student and he goes to Kristie's college but they don't know him so well. When the autopsy reveals that it was a murder, Anna cannot help but investigate even if she is overwhelmed with work. And her friends - colleagues can't leave her alone.
I really enjoyed reading about the relationship of the three women with their overprotective boyfriends. Although Callie is not having a good time with Ben. Anna is a stubborn and determined woman, Kristie is sweet and romantic.
I loved every single page, every chapter starts with a request to Santa and is full of delicious sweets, I have been mouth-watering from beginning to end. There is mystery, humor, romance, nothing is missing.
I can't wait to try the cupcake recipes
I recommend it to those who love cozy mysteries, cupcakes and short and fun stories

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.
