I don't know about you, but I sure enjoy a good cozy mystery! And Author Amanda Flower knows how to write good ones! This is the 3rd book in the Amish Candy Shop Mystery series.
When Bailey's ex boyfriend Eric shows up with his production team with the idea of filming in Holmes County, specifically in Swissmen Sweets, Bailey isn't happy to see him. She is even less happy to see him when the executive producer turns up dead on the town square! Eric insists Bailey solve the case in order to clear his name. Not only is Eric there to film his show, but he is also there to try to rekindle a relationship with Bailey. Bailey has moved on though and is much more interested in the Sheriff Deputy. Things get more complicated before the exciting conclusion. In the midst of following leads Bailey is offered an opportunity that may be too good to turn down, but will affect more than just Bailey.
I loved revisiting Holmes County and all of its quirky and funny community. And as always the appearance of animals throughout the story had me chuckling at their antics. From a camel in a live Nativity to Juliet's pet pig Jethro, they manage to add levity to lighten up the story.
I'm looking forward to trying the recipe that comes with this book, Bailey's Peppermint Bark is featured in the story and sounds yummy. I'm also looking forward to the next installment of the series, which we get a preview of at the end of the book.
If you enjoy a good cozy mystery then prepare to snuggle up in your favorite recliner or reading nook with a soft blanket and a warm cup of coffee or cocoa and enjoy this fun read.
