Amish Candy Shop #4

Bailey is back home in Harvest, OH for the latest installment of the Amish Candy Shop Mysteries.  Someone she manages to be present at the scene of another death almost immediately upon her return from NYC.  The story introduces us to new characters- including a matchmaker who is getting a spinoff series from the book and delves deeper into some of the supporting characters and relationships.  All in all a good and light read. 

Toxic Toffee (Amish Candy Shop Mystery #4)Toxic Toffee by Amanda Flower
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Candy making and crime solving in Amish country

It's a joy to catch up with Bailey in Harvest, OH. The supporting characters are a pleasure to read about as well. This is a wholesome feel good cozy. The guilty party was definitely a bit of a surprise. This installment had us viewing the English world from Charlotte's perspective a bit more. It is such an innocent view and gives you pause about some everyday things we take for granted. We also get a sneak peek at the main character of Amanda Flower's newest series which seems as though it might be delightful. We will Have to wait and see

All in all a fun read
