Series: Fudge Shop mystery. Search Result Page:. The book starts with a humorous scene as Angie tries to capture an escaped Nubian goat named Petunia. Oliver, so very cute and a great companion, does have his quirks as well. During the ruckus of Angie tackling Petunia, Oliver disappears.
The scene is the weekly auction, held in a barn. She and Amish quilter friends investigate to make sure Rachel and her husband are safe, the bakery opens and the real culprit is found. Angie is finding her place in Rolling Brook, getting involved with the community and fitting in more. Oliver is, as always, a treat and steals the scene every time. Petunia and Dodger, his friends do too so I can only hope we see a lot more of the three of them. Rachel is a good friend and through her, the reader finds out about the ways of the Amish as Angie learns, much better than the dreaded information dump, a long list of things we need to know all in one pile.
The series is shaping up well and Rolling Brook is becoming real in my mind as are the characters.
As if these were not enough teething troubles for one person to bear, the plot thickens even more, like a bad pudding. That lighthouse is at the top of my web page, www. Notify me of new posts via email. Hot Fudge Frame-Up. Learn more - opens in new window or tab.
At the back of the book, alas, no recipe for the fry pies but there are instructions for how to make an Amish quilted pincushion jar and an excerpt of the next book, Murder Served Simply , available from Obsidian in December. Sandra Murphy lives in the shadow of the arch, in the land of blues, booze and shoes—St Louis, Missouri. While writing magazine articles to support her mystery book habit, she secretly polishes two mystery books of her own, hoping, someday, they will see the light of Barnes and Noble.
In the tiny town of Door County, Wisconsin, the mostly Belgian population of two hundred depends on the summer tourist season to bring in business. That the contest is being filmed for possible television series only amps up their antics and has Ava worried that her friend Pauline is going to get her heart broken by the tourism promoter encouraging the drama. Sunken treasure, a possible suicide, a car accident and a series of threats concerning the fudge contest all have Ava imperiled either as the target of a frame-up or death.
After receiving the news that she was not the only woman married to Dillon, Ava obtained an annulment, quit her television screenwriting job, and returned home. There are two sides to every story though. Tasty- recipes are included in the sweet-themed mystery.
It may be Christmastime in Old Town Alexandria but there certainly seems to be a lack of goodwill to men. During a holiday business party organized by event planner Sophie Winston, real estate company owner Horace Scoggins takes a header over a balcony and falls on his own antique Scottish dirk. The tone of this hilarious mystery is set with the mock Christmas newsletter sent by Gwen Babineaux as it highlights everything that is loathsome about boastful holiday cards.
Sophie has become accustomed to the eccentricities of her town. Sophie may wonder if she still has some remnants of affection for her ex-husband but she attempts to move on with attorney Alex German—now that her relationship with Homicide Investigator Wolf Fleishman has circled the drain. The escapades of Sophie, her best friend Nina, and the local residents occasionally prove to be similarly outrageous but are always entertaining.
What should not be overlooked, though, is how Davis develops her characters past their first impressions and grants them complex, and occasionally tragic, histories to explain their present behavior. Raucous humor, affectionate characters, and delectable recipes highlight this unpredictable mystery that entertains during any season. A winner will be chosen June 28, She balances a librarian lifestyle of cardigans and hair buns with a passion for motorcycle riding and regrettable tattoos sorry, Mom.
