Publisher's Summary

Christmas is Bailey King's favorite time of year. For her first Yuletide in Harvest, Ohio, the former big-city chocolatier is recreating a cherished holiday treat: peppermint combined with molten white chocolate. But her sugar high plummets when her former boyfriend walks into the candy shop she now runs with her Amish grandmother. 

New York celebrity chef Eric Sharp and his TV crew have arrived to film an authentic Amish Christmas. Bailey's not about to let her beloved town - and Swissmen Sweets - be turned into a sound bite. Unfortunately, she gets more publicity than she bargained for when Eric's executive producer is found strangled to death - and Eric's the prime suspect.

With Bailey's sheriff deputy boyfriend out to prove Eric's guilt, her bad-boy ex tries to sweet-talk her into helping him clear his name...and rekindle their romance to boost ratings for his show. Now, between a surplus of suspects and a victim who wasn't who she seemed, Bailey's edging dangerously close to a killer who isn't looking to bring joy to the world-or to Bailey-this deadly Noel....

I’m enjoying this series

I am very picky about ready, and listening, to books. I enjoy a wide array of genres, for relaxation and simple fun the genre if choice is a cozy mystery.

With the need to meet a veracious reading appetite like mine I find it more difficult each month to find books with quality. Well used grammar, spelling, multiple plot lines and good overall writing are the basics of what I enjoy.

I am happy to report the “Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series” mire than meets my basic requirements. The author, and narrator, both do well with their attempt to mix the American “Englisher” and the American “Amish Danish” culture and language differences.

If one is looking for an entertaining series of cozy mysteries to read, Amanda Fowler’s Amish Candy Shop Mysteries, is a good choice.

Great series

As usual, so fun to visit Holmes County, Ohio! This is one of my favorite mystery series, for a few reasons. Bailey is always growing and evolving and so does the story and what she wants to achieve. I like that it isn’t just someone going to work and finding a body constantly. Plus the town is always so heartwarming and I feel at home every time.

“Shivers” way too much!

This author uses “shivers” way too much in each and every book on this series. Can you not use “made my blood run cold” or “made my spine tingle” or anything else that is different?

enjoyable

I can "see" the gazebo, the church, the tow square in my mind! The narrator is lively & I can "see" the potbellied pig looking around acting like a human!

Too Combative

I think my problem is that everyone feels either antagonistic or passive. I really hated the ending as well it was really more like a cliffhanger.

Great book!!

Good mystery, I didnt have it pegged who was guilty until it was getting near the reveal. I like when it keeps me guessing, and how there could be so many angles to follow,like with actual murder. I love the growing story between Bailey and Aiden too, I want there to be more. I like Bailey in Holmes county too, I believe she will always be there and will live happily.making her Maami happy, among others. I don't like her back and forth much, but I understand it too. It was a well written story and I wait for more to flush out Bailey and Aiden's relationship,which I hope does end with their marriage and family, making Julliet and Clara very happy!!

Interesting and Fun

I love this series! It is fun and keeps you guessing. This particular story dragged in a few places, for the first time I found myself - come on - dragging it out some here but overall it was good. Loved the addition to the live Nativity - was a cute addition!

Sweet Story

The Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series is light and entertaining. The characters are engaging and interesting. The mystery is well developed and has an easy going pace. The only thing I don't like is that Bailey is a doormat. She let's herself get talked into things she doesn't want to do. She spends too much time making everyone else happy. I had to skip ahead on some parts because it was just too annoying. I like this series and will continue to read/listen to the books. I only wish Bailey had more of a spine.
