Book two in the Bestselling Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series!
Too many sweets spoil the murder . . .

Harvest, Ohio, is a long way from New York City, where Bailey King left a coveted job as a head chocolatier to take over Swissmen Sweets, her Amish grandparents’ candy shop. Now, while caring for her recently widowed grandmother, she plans to honor her grandfather’s memory by entering the annual Amish Confectionery Competition. But between lavender blueberry fudge and chocolate cherry ganache truffles, Bailey may have bitten off more than she can chew when the search for a missing pot-bellied pig turns up a body suffering from sugar overload—the fatal kind . . .

A candy maker from a neighboring town who wanted Englischer Bailey disqualified for being an outsider, Josephine Weaver died from an allergy to an essential licorice ingredient. The suspects include: Josephine’s niece, a young woman going through her rumspringa, or running around time, and Bailey herself. Now it falls to Bailey, who’s sweet on the local sheriff’s deputy, to clear their names and entice a killer with a cast-iron stomach for cold-blooded murder . . .

Recipe Included!
No purchase necessary. There will be one winner. Limited to US and Canada residents.

Sometimes you need a sweet tooth to take a bite out of crime . . .

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 . . .

Prose and Cons Giveback Ends an Incredible Year

It seems every year is a year of change, and that was certainly the case for me this year. However, 2016 was also an incredible year for my writing. Andi Unstoppable won the Agatha Award for Best Children’s/YA Mystery. I was one of the featured author at the 20th annual Ohioana Book Festival. I released four novels  (Crime and Poetry; The Final Tap; Murder, Handcrafted, and Prose and Cons). Crime and Poetry was name one of the Best Cozy Mysteries of 2016 by Suspense Magazine. Crime and Poetry hit the Barnes and Nobel and Indiebound Bestsellers lists, and Prose and Cons hit the Barnes and Nobel Bestsellers list. Prose and Cons was my twentieth published book, a dream that would never have even occurred to me as a little girl who just wanted to see one book with her name on it in the library.

It’s been an incredible year because I have the support of incredible readers. I could never thank you enough.

Happy New Year! Wishing you all the very best in 2017!

In Cascade Springs, New York, Violet Waverly and her grandma, Daisy, are the proprietors of Charming Books, where the power of the written word is positively enchanting…

October in Cascade Springs means tourists are pouring in for the annual Food and Wine Festival, and Daisy hopes to draw those crowds to the store. She asks Violet and the local writing group, the Red Inkers, to give a reading of the works of Edgar Allan Poe in the shop’s back garden to entertain the revelers. Everyone eagerly agrees.
Yet their enthusiasm is soon extinguished when Violet discovers one of the writers dead in the shop during the event. After the shop magically tells Violet she’ll need to rely on Poe’s works to solve the murder, she enlists the help of her trusty tuxedo cat, Emerson, and the shop’s crow, Faulkner. But they must act fast before someone else’s heart beats nevermore…

Prose and Cons to release on December 6, 2016 will be my twentieth published mystery. Twenty books in six years. That is an incredible statistic, and one I would have never had reached if hadn’t been for the kindness of others. To honor and celebrate everything that my friends, family, and my amazing readers have done for me to make this impossible dream come true, I am hosting the Prose and Cons Giveback for those in need.

Preorder or purchase any edition of Prose and Cons between now and Tuesday, December 20, 2016, and I will donate one dollar for every book sold to a local food pantry, The Landing, located in Akron, Ohio. My brother and sister-in-law, Andrew and Nicole Flower, manage the Landing in the basement of Akron Christian Reformed Church with a group of dedicated volunteers. The food pantry feeds over sixty families in the church’s neighborhood on $200 a week. The money raised will go towards the purchase of an industrial refrigerator, so that the food pantry can store more food longer for their families. You can learn more about the Landing in this article and video in the Akronist.

Preorder today!
