Oh Say Can You Fudge

 This is the next in the Mackinaw Island based series by Nancy Coco.  This time Allie finds herself in a mess around the 4th of July.  What a perfect read for the start of summer.  The series is so perfectly descriptive of the Mackinaw Island and all its charm and history.  Reading these books really makes me want to travel to the island.  Maybe we can tie a visit in with a college visit this summer.                              

Allie's character and her friendships with Jenn, Frances and Trevor continue to develop in this next installment of the series.  I love all the descriptions about Mal and the mischief she finds. This book highlights much of the traditions of the Island for the 4th of July and combines those wonderful features with a set of mysteries.  There is an explosion that may or may not relate to previous fires on the island.  The story weaves these mysteries together with life on the island in a very seamless way.   I really am enjoying this series.

If you are looking for a  wonderful cozy mystery series this is definitely one to try.  Now if you are trying to avoid candy and sweets, the fudge recipes may be a deal breaker :)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great mystery set in an iconic site

This book captures the history and traditions of Mackinaw Island so well. The mystery is well written and full of plot twists that are ultimately tied together well. The characters are endearing and their relationships grow with each book in the series. Perfect summer read as the season begins
