Book review - Killer Cupcakes, by Leighann Dobbs

This appalling book neatly illustrates how not to do writing. It has practically every fault there is, starting with the amateur writer's hat trick - adjectives hanging off every substantive like goldmark jewellery on a bogan, 'lay' used intransitively, and endless pointless descriptions of the minute details of trivia such as people eating their food, taking showers and so on. Miss Dobbs appears to have no idea of the purpose and function of the apostrophe, and as far as the story itself goes it is ill-conceived, unrealistic and unbelievable.
