Publisher's Summary

Life is sweet for Allie McMurphy, proud owner of Historic McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop on Mackinac Island - until murder and deception leave a bitter taste....

Mulch ado about murder...

With summer in bloom and tourists afoot, Allie is out walking her pup, Mal, when the curious canine digs up a bone from under a flowering lilac bush. The bone leads to a toe that's missing a body. For the successful confectionaire it's only the first in a series of sour events in the middle of the island's Lilac Fest. When her stint on a cooking reality show swirls up a trail of foul play, Allie will have to outwit a cunning killer if she wants to continue living la dolce vida....

    Story
    "Too many bones in the mulch!"

    This is the second Allies McMurphy fudge shop and McMurphy Hotel mystery? The setting of Mackinaw Island adds a lot to these mysteries along with the numerous scrumptious fudge recipes. In this book, the pup, Mal, finds some unwanted bones in mulch around the island, while Allie gets involved in a "scripted" cooking show so reminiscent of many shown on TV these days. The body count grows but the "why" and "who" is difficult to figure out, Allie keeps charging forth with her little pup, Mal, as her defender.

    This is a fun series. I love the descriptions of Island events, Mal's antics, and Allie's two suitors. The mystery was interesting but difficult to actually figure out by following the story. Not as good as book one, but definitely good enough to anticipate reading further in this series! I listened to the book on audio and enjoyed the narration.

    Story
    "Who knew Fudge could be so interesting"
    What made the experience of listening to To Fudge or Not to Fudge the most enjoyable?

    Well in the second book it was nice to see how Mel was contributing to finding all the body parts. I won't spoil it for anyone but I just love that little dog. Also I love see how she work with both love interest this time. I also love how Jenn got involved also. Her Mother brought more to the story as well I do hope we get to learn more about her parents in the future. The killer oh wow didn't see that one coming at all so it was nice to get stumped till the end.


    What does Vanessa Johansson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Did a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When her mother broke down and shared with her about her dad and her feelings about the island and it people on there. I think it was a growing experience for them both. Also when both men kissed her. It's nice to see that even the plan girl can get attention.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy the last 2 books and look forward to seeing more. I think it would be great to see her go through a winter on the island and I look forward to seeing were that goes.

    "good but could be better"
    What did you love best about To Fudge or Not to Fudge?

    The story line it self was good it's has to many recipes. It would be getting good then

    What about Vanessa Johansson’s performance did you like?

    Yes she is very. Good for this part.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some parts our funny made me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope she continues writing this series has good potential.

    Story
    "Only thing good was the dog"
    What disappointed you about To Fudge or Not to Fudge?

    Slow Moving, just never seemed to get to the point.
    The narrator sounded like a child and was very irritating.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nancy Coco again?

    Nope


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Johansson’s performances?

    Absolutely not! She is horrible, Sounded like a very young valley girl, ruined the book, assuming the book could have been saved.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from To Fudge or Not to Fudge?

    Only thing worth while was the dog.


    Any additional comments?

    Returning, don't waste a credit on this mess.
