Sometimes you need a sweet tooth to take a bite out of crime . . . Bailey King is living the sweet life as assistant chocolatier at world-famous JP Chocolates in New York City. But just when Bailey s up for a life-changing promotion, her grandmother calls with news that her grandfather s heart condition has worsened. Bailey rushes to Harvest, Ohio, where her grandparents still run Swissmen Sweets, the Amish candy shop where she was first introduced to delicious fudge, truffles, and other assorted delights. She finds her grandfather is doing better than she feared. Unfortunately, the same can t be said for a local Englisch developer, whom Bailey finds dead in the candy shop kitchen with Jebediah King s chocolate knife buried in his chest. Now the police are sweet on her grandfather as the prime suspect. Despite the sincere efforts of a yummy deputy with chocolate-brown eyes, Bailey takes it on herself to clear Jebediah. But as a cunning killer tries to fudge the truth, Bailey may be headed straight into a whole batch of trouble . . . Recipe Included!"

3✨ I‘m not sure what to say on this one. It was nothing I read before. My family is from Ohio so I‘m familiar with Amish culture, but like Bailey I still have a lot to learn. There was a lot of people with motives so it kept me on my toes. I did not end up figuring out who did if. However, the ending was very good getting to the ending had hard emotions to battle through. Overall, I‘m interested in continuing the series. #LMPBC #GroupM

Jerdencon Looking forward to this! 2mo
TurnerofPages I am a secret lover of cozy mysteries. I saw this on the shelves at Barnes & Noble a few years ago but didn't pick it up. Still, I would be interested in reading this. 2mo

Hello #GroupM #LMPBC here is what I have on hand. If none of these look good let me know. Being open with you that the middle two are labeled as Christian if that is something you don‘t read. @suvata @Jadams1776 @Jerdencon @Kangaj1

Jadams1776 I think Assaulted Caramel would be my pick. I‘ve read One for the Money, but it‘s been years. I‘m good with anything though 😊 3mo
Jerdencon I‘ve never read one for the money so I‘d be interested in that or else assaulted caramel sounded good too! 3mo
Kangaj1 I am open to either of those as well! 3mo
Roary47 @Jadams1776 @Jerdencon @Kangaj1 I‘ll stick with my tagged Assaulted Caramel. It‘s been on my shelves the longest. 3mo

I liked how this series started. Bailey was interesting and had to ask herself some hard questions, including what her priorities were, and was the promotion she‘d been pursuing for years worth the sacrifices she‘d made or not. Enjoyed the setting and look forward to checking out the next book in this series.

This one kept me reading to the end, but it was just meh. Not quite sure why, it just didn't have that magic that makes cozies so special. #cozyinthesun @Librarybelle @ferskner

Librarybelle That‘s a shame! 3y
ferskner Oh no! I just bought this one.

IndoorDame @ferskner hopefully you'll like it better than I did! 2y

First book in Flower's new cozy mystery series. I'm not a cozy mystery fan, but I enjoy Flower's books. Chocolatier Bailey King returns to Harvest, Ohio, when her grandfather's health declines. While there, she finds the body of a developer in the kitchen of her Amish grandparents' candy shop. Bailey takes it upon herself to clear her name, but the candy cutting knife imbedded in the victim's chest is Bailey's. 4/5 stars.

The first in a series taken place in Amish Country in Ohio. Bailey King comes to visit her sick Grandfather and steps into a murder.
A quick read mystery. I enjoyed it a lot, the characters were believable and you cared what happened to them.
