Publisher's Summary

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....

Narrator offputting

Loved the storyline and the characters. Loved the setting and not an obvious whodunit. However, after listening to many other Amish story audiobooks, I found the narrator a bit much at times. The intonations at many of the ends of the sentences were annoying.

Great book!

While I loved the book, I think I would have derived more pleasure from having read it myself. I found the narrator boring, and the inflection of her voice to be awkward.
Overall, I did enjoy the book, and look forward to the next in the series.

Unlistenable

Could not get through even two chapters of this robotic narration. I would love a refund.

disappointing

Perhaps, story is better than the reader presented.
I didn't feel a part of it.

Delicious Caramel

Well written and fun reading. You feel like you are in that Amish town and part of the story. So easy to relate to all the characters and the story grabs you and keeps your interest to the very end. Well done!

Plot ok, characters disappointing

The villain was well developed, however, the plot was average. Most of the ancillary characters were too mellow dramatic and unconvinced with minimal logic behind their thought process. The representation of the Amish is minimal. I wouldn’t call it an Amish book, as the interplay with the Amish was just on the fringe. It’s well written from a grammatical standpoint.

Unique take on the cozy

Having just moved to Ohio and being in the state of loving cozies for their coziness, I knew this was my next read. I’m delighted to say it was really good. The Amish aspect was well done and the pronunciation of Amish lilt was spot on (from my guess anyway). Sometimes the narrator did have that reading voice that doesn’t keep you engaged and sometimes she kept on with the Amish inflection even though the story had moved on to a non Amish character, but the majority of her reading was fine. The MC was smart and funny. I liked the chocolatier angle and the candy shop and The side characters were interesting. I’d put this one up with Dewberry Farms series as one of my top favorite cozies!
