Oh Say Can You Fudge by Nancy Coco - Review and Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Oh Say Can You Fudge by Nancy Coco
A Candy Coated Mystery #3
ISBN: 9780758287144
Mass Market Paperback - 288 pages

Allie McMurphy is busy making yummy fudge for the summer holiday–until murder gives her something else to chew on. . .

Red, White, And Boom

It’s not Fourth of July on Mackinac Island without fireworks and fudge. The Historic McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop is supplying the treats–and Allie has hired Rodney Rivers, the biggest name in aerial displays, to create an unforgettable spectacle. Unfortunately, Allie finds him dead, covered with screaming chicken fireworks, just before the entire warehouse of pyrotechnics goes up in smoke. Is it arson or is it murder? Allie and her bichonpoo, Mal, must sift through the suspects until the killer is caught and the island can enjoy a star-spangled celebration.

This is another cozy series that I will be keeping up with. I liked how this was a fast paced mystery packed with action. Two things I really liked about this book is how much Mal the little dog is a part of the story and that is it centered around fudge making. The author does a good job of describing life on the island and makes it so you want to visit there. This is not a mystery that you will solve right away. You will have to really put all the clues together to figure this one out. You will find yourself trying to read faster than normal so that you can see what is going to happen next. Follow along with Allie as she finds herself “stuck” in the midst of solving another murder. If you have not read the rest of this series it is ok as you can read this as a stand alone book but I know that you will want to go back and finish the rest of the series.
