*I received a free copy from Netgalley which I voluntarily wrote an honest review of. Expected publication date is August 29, 2017.
Book one in a the brand new Amish Candy Shop Mystery series. I have to say I really enjoyed this book. We get to meet Bailey King who after training for years is up for the position of head chocolatier at a huge powerful company in New York. This is a very prestigious career move, but it is put in jeopardy when it becomes necessary for her to travel to Harvest, Ohio in the thick of Amish country because her grandfather has taken ill not doing well at all. Her grandparents have run a candy shop for generations and Olivia received her childhood training at their knee when she visited every summer. Just as she arrives grandpa collapses and she finds out that he is being harassed to sell the shop which he does not have any intention of doing. Before she can talk to the man pushing him to sell she finds his dead body in the kitchen of the shop in the middle of the night. No one has a clue why he is there, but she quickly becomes the number one suspect. Unable to leave because she is a suspect she finds herself investigating in order to clear her name. Her best friend from New York shows up to help as well. It is all figured out in the end though I will admit the two fold solution threw me for a loop, but was a really nice surprise. The epilogue was even better. This book was incredible and I highly recommend it to fans of cozy mysteries or the author in general since her other books are also great. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars and I am really looking forward to the next installment in the series which comes out next year.
