Red Velvet Revenge by Jenn McKinlay
When Melanie and Angie get the opportunity to escape the heat of summer by selling their cupcakes at the Juniper Pass rodeo, they jump at the chance. After retrofitting Oz's new cupcake van, Mel, Angie, Tate, Oz, and Marty accept the invitation of Slim Hazard to join his legendary annual rodeo. The rodeo starts with a parade, where someone shoots Slim in the shoulder. While the local sheriff is investigating what is thought to be a stray bullet, the rodeo star is found murdered.
I really like this series. The character are not perfect and act like real people, I love that the author set this mystery "on the road", as I always question just how many murders and murderers can a small town harbor.
