The Pink Cupcake Truck is here! From 3x USA TODAY Bestselling Author Harper Lin:

After a messy divorce, forty-four-year-old Amelia Harley has taken back her maiden name and decided to sell homemade cupcakes out of a food truck. With the help of her two teenage kids in picking out the name and color of her truck (pink, of course) and using social media to help spread the word, Amelia is ready to roll in Food Truck Alley.

However, a man is found stabbed to death in the dining area, and the young man from the burrito food truck next to Amelia's is arrested. Matthew is a big, tattooed former gang member, an obvious suspect, but Amelia believes he is innocent.

Can Amelia save an innocent man? Can she make her food truck a success and make her children proud? Find out in the first book of The Pink Cupcake Mysteries.

    I enjoyed this book. I read it in two sittings, which is rare for me. I recommend it to all who want a light hearted book with likable characters.

    Loved it. Could not put it down. Great plot and story line. Not at all boring. Not too long and not too short. Thanks a lot.

    This was overall an entertaining story. The mystery was okay but the main character, Amelia, and her setting up and starting a cupcake food truck was the real star of the story. I enjoyed getting to read about all her recipes for cupcakes and really wished I could have tasted some of them.

    Not a lot of suspense, but flowed nicely and pulled everything together so there were no dangling threads by the last page. Will read more in this series.

    Loved the story and the characters. Amelia is a great role model for her kids. Lila is interesting so maybe we may learn more about her in the next books to come. Love the book and thank you for the cupcake recipes.

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. It was a good mystery, was down to earth, kept me intrigued and was “clean”. With the energy around us today, it was refreshing.
