Chance to Win an ARC of LETHAL LICORICE!



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!

The Reviews Are Coming In! (The one from Emma is my favorite!)

“I really loved ‘Andi Unexpected’ and I recommend it to anybody who’s in the mood for a leave-me-alone-I-want-to-finish-this-book type book. I really hope it’s a series so I get to find out what happens to Andi in the future. I have a feeling Colin and Andi aren’t just going to turn out to be the sit-still-at-home type of people.”
-Emma, 10-year-old reviewer

“Flower weaves in some history and also shines a light on the emotional difficulties the two recently orphaned girls experience… Characterizations… stand out as nicely individualistic… Some life-threatening suspense highlights the book’s climax, and a small smattering of religion keeps the story appropriate for a Christian audience. A fun little detective story with some simple life lessons.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Flower creates a cast of memorable characters and a colorful, historically detailed setting. Though a somewhat sinister foe threatens to derail Andi’s investigation, she proves a resourceful sleuth. Throughout, the realistic but warm rapport between the sisters and their aunt is the tent pole for a story about starting anew while remembering the past.” –Publishers Weekly

Giveaway of the LOST ARCs

The last few weeks as I’ve waited for edits, I’ve gone a cleaning spree in my home. No clutter was safe from the garage to the den. The funny thing about cleaning is I usually find things I thought were lost forever. This time was no different, but it’s good news for you.

I found SIX advanced reader’s copies (ARCs) of my novels. I found one copy of Maid of Murder, three copies of Murder in a Basket, and two copies of A Plain Death. Now I’m giving them away. The giveaway runs through Friday, June 14th.


How to Enter:
