A Zombie Walk is right up cupcake bakers, Mel, Angie, Marty, and Oz's alley. It's Old Town's first annual and they all head there to set up shop and sell  some dressed up, themed cupcakes just for the occasion. Mel is the owner of Fairy Tale Cupcakes and she wants this event do go down with out a hitch.

They are all donned in their best zombie like attire there's trouble ahead when someone is found dead in the all to real casket that Mel brought along as a prop too try to lure people in to buy her cupcakes. This person bares a strange resemblance to Angie and Mel breaks down with her discovery of the body. She is then relieved to discover that the body is not Angie but the wife of a Lawyer working on a case that Mel's former boyfriend lawyer Joe is also working on and could possibly have a connection to the case.

Angie is going through some terrible survivors guilt over the murdered woman's death when she finds out that she was the actual target of the killer being Joe's sister and her well being is struggling. All the while Mel and Joe and Angie and Tate's relationships remain in the balance. Mel's first instinct is to keep her best friend, Angie safe and stop at nothing to make sure it is done even if it means it's the end of all that she holds dear.

I love how Jenn McKinlay's mind works to come up with this mind blowing cupcake bakery series with these characters that always leave you wanting more and to see how it all turns out and it was so true with Dark Chocolate Demise. It is no secret that this is one of my favorite series even my husband and best friend know it's true. Every time a new one comes out I get so excited that and the fact that I have a crush on Tate. Dark Chocolate Demise is as cravable as a real chocolate cupcake. There's no slowing down the excitement and action. Fast-paced and when you read this book bring along some delicious cupcakes because you are in for a awesome ride.
