Hayley Snow, the food critic for Key Zest magazine, has her plate heaped high with restaurant reviews, doughnut and sticky bun tastings, and an article on the Hemingway cats. But this week sheís also in charge of her best friendís wedding. And then someone adds a side of murderÖ

For better or worse, Hayley has agreed to bake over 200 cupcakes for her friend Connieís wedding while still meeting her writing deadlines. The last thing she needs is family drama. But her parents come barreling down on the island like a category 3 hurricane and on their first night in town her stepbrother, Roby, disappears into the spring break party scene in Key West.

When Hayley hears that two teenagers have stolen a jet ski, she sets aside her oven mitts and goes in search of Rory. She finds him, barely conscious, but his female companion isnít so lucky. Now Hayley has to let the cupcakes cool and assemble the sprinkles of clues to clear her stepbrotherís nameóbefore someone else gets iced.
