A romantic comedy baking celebrity mystery...

Lizzie Carter would love nothing more than to enter and win the Grand Bake-Off competition at this year’s Delamere Baking Festival, setting her on the way towards fulfilling her secret and special quest, but there’s just one problem—she’s a mediocre baker at best. If that wasn’t enough of a challenge, this year’s celebrity judge, Cherry Bakewell, is found dead with a poisoned cupcake in her hand before the festival even kicks off. Even worse, Lizzie’s fiancé Jack, a private investigator and appointed security consultant for the festival, was the one who found Cherry dead, and the police are treating him as a suspect. As if her life wasn’t crazy enough before, juggling two jobs and organising her wedding, now Lizzie, determined to clear Jack’s name, has to add tracking down a murderer to her To-Do list, as well. Will the police haul Jack in for further questioning, leaving Lizzie to tackle the case all on her own? Can she hunt down the real murderer before they strike again? Should Lizzie just ditch her ridiculous baking dreams right now before her dreadful cakes become the laughing stock of the festival? Grab your copy of Murder At The Bake Off to find out…   From the reviews for the Celebrity Mystery series: "Murder on the Menu is a light and easy read with a little bit of romance and a lot of sleuthing! I love a good cozy mystery now and again and this book certainly quenched my need for it. Zanna Mackenzie clearly has a knack for writing this type of book because she left me intrigued in the beginning and needing more in the end! I truly loved this book and I cannot wait to see where the characters take us in the next book. This series is going to the top of my Cozy Mysteries MUST READ list!" "A fast and easy read, the story line moved along quickly and had me changing my thought on who done it several times. I look forward to reading more about these two sleuths." "This is the second of Zanna's books I've read and I really did enjoy it. Jack & Lizzie's relationship seemed real and it was fun to follow them in their sleuthing to find the real murderer before Lizzie ended up in jail. Of course there's a happy ending, just not the one that you're expecting and I think you'll like this one as much as I did." "I love the Lizzie and Jack series! I enjoyed Murder on the Menu, and this one was just plain fun. I had no idea "whodunit" until it was revealed. I can't wait for the next adventure in this series!" "This is a really cute book. I absolutely loved it."

    Murder at the Bake Off - a review by Rosemary Kenny Cherry Bakewell's the Mary Berry equivalent, in Zanna Mackenzie's third book of the Celebrity Mystery Series, which tells of amateur chef and sleuth Lizzie Carter and PI and, in this case,security consultant, Jack Mathis and their hunt for the perpetrator who's assassinated Cherry with a poisoned cup-cake that is found (before the competition begins), still in her corpse's hand by none other than our hero, Jack.

He, for some bizarre reason becomes the police's no.1 suspect, despite there being no witnesses nor evidence to suggest, let alone prove any motive for such a thing. In fact it's more likely to be (but it's not, of course), Lizzie who's guilty, with her awful baking results making her the least likely to win the Celebrity Bake Off at the Delamare Baking Festival where (the foul deed occurs and), she's is one of the contestants. Needless to say it all ends well, though with an unexpected killer and HEA for our lovers. Well done (apart from more careful editing being much-needed), Ms Mackenzie, this is a great novel for cozy mystery and romance stories fans, who should rush out and buy the whole series...you'll love them!

They even travel to London and Lizzie takes a workshop at Cherry's daughter Maggie's bakery--Bakewells, The Celebrity Bakery. The stories in this cozy series are consistently good. Jack and Lizzie are likable characters and there are always lots of possible suspects to weed through!

    4 Stars I purchased a copy of the novel Murder At The Bake Off: A Humorous Romantic Cozy Mystery (A Recipe For Disaster Mystery Book 3) by Zanna Mackenzie and this review was given freely. Lizzie needs to clear Jack of murdering one of his clients while she is planning their wedding and frantically but unsuccessfully learning to bake. This ironic murder mystery floes easily, is action packed, complexed and has multiple twists and turns.

    This is the third in the series. The main characters are Lizzie and her fiancee Jack. Jack is hired as security for a bake off and when the judge of the competition is murdered. They are thrown into a mad dash for clues to solve this murder before the judging begins. Loved this one and can't wait to read more. This is the third in the series.

    A delicious addition In this latest mystery, we really see Lizzie grow as a character. She comes to terms with her past while facing her future in the midst of the current murder. All in all a fantastic read!

    Ok read with many twists and turns. The characters were interesting , but I felt like I was behind not knowing the main character’s history. Probably would have been better if I had read the first book in the series.

    Lizzie and Jack are great together! I love the team of Lizzie and Jack. They have the best chemistry. They are respectful of one another and work together to solve another murder mystery. This is a clean, fun, light, and easy read.

    Murder at the Bake Off A delightful romantic murder mystery with some very humorous situations. Zanna MacKenzie has a delightful way with words that puts you in the middle of the actions and has you trying to figure out the motive--revenge, jealousy, love, money. A great read.

But first she needs to do one important thing... learn how to cook. The Delamere Baking Festival Grand Bake-off has Lizzie wondering if she was up to such a challenge. Jack Mathis ends up getting the job as security for the bake-off but when he ends up finding the dead body of famous celebrity baker Cherry Bakewell, he becomes suspect number one. Lizzie ends up juggling two jobs and now wants to help clear Jack's name on top of her growing stack of things to do. Her to-do list is getting longer and longer by the minute. I thought this was a good representation of what Zanna Mackenzie does best, plotting out a great story. It kept me interested throughout even though I did not have a lot of time to devote to reading it due to my busy schedule. Thank goodness for lunch time cram sessions to get my Zanna Mackenzie fix. The first book in the celebrity crimes mystery series featured a lot more of her fiancee Jack Mathis and I think I would have liked to see a bit more of him in this book. Due to the fact that he was the main suspect, he wasn't actually on the canvas of the novel as much and did a lot of things "off camera. If you love a good cozy mystery, you won't be disappointed in Zanna Mackenzie's Celebrity Mystery series. Also check out her wildly popular Amber Reed Celebrity Crimes mysteries as well. I received this book as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) from the author and I thank her for allowing me to read this novel in return for an honest review.

    Another good read by Ms Mackenzie Jack and Lizzie are back in action with the murder of the famous baker, Cherry Bakewell-great name, right!-at the Rosebe. Of course, one of them makes the top of the suspect list and rush to solve the murder before they get arrested. Meet the cast of this book as the investigation continues. The writing is continued as expected, fast paced enough to keep your attention but with enough everyday life included to allow the reader to fit pieces of the puzzle together.

It's also nice to watch Jack and Lizzie get closer as a couple without it degrading into just sex. Sweet and heartwarming. The ending is tidy and with enough of a twist to be interesting. On to the next adventure.

    I'm so happy to see Lizzie and Jack back at it again! I enjoyed Murder on the Menu immensely, and the follow-up to it certainly doesn't disappoint. Lizzie is trying to shape up her terrible baking skills enough to enter a local competition, which is being judged by her celebrity baking idol. She never expects to be caught up in the woman's murder, though.
