    A short, sweet mystery

    This little trip back to the world of Swissmen Sweets is delightful. This time around, no murders but a robbery to solve. Bailey's parents have come to spend Mother's Day in Harvest and a fundraising tea becomes another chance for Bailey to solve a mystery. I've loved this series so much and I'm thrilled NetGalley gave me the chance to read an advance of this novella. All the charming elements of this series are there in just the right proportions. This is the first time that Jethro the pig didn't annoy me. Margot and Juliet aren't overbearing here the way they can sometimes get in the novels and I actually walked away really appreciating Margot in a way I haven't up to this point. We get glimpses of Clara, Charlotte, Aiden, and Deputy Little (seems like something is being set up there for the next book). The church ladies are doing their thing and I became bewitched by this world all over again. The characters introduced specifically for the mystery are all acting from a place of deep love for their family, which gives this story a warmth that makes it the perfect Mother's Day yarn. If you're new to this series, this is a great way to get an introduction.

    A delight!

    Botched Butterscotch by Amanda Flower has Bailey King expecting her parents for Mother’s Day weekend. Bailey has been busy preparing treats for the Mother’s Day Tea at the church that is supporting Abigail’s Farm, a place for women to recover from addiction. While everyone is enjoying the tea and butterscotch bars, a sticky-fingered thief makes off with the contents of the donation box (over $10,000). Detective Little is going solo and Bailey promises to help him nab the crook and recover the cash. Botched Butterscotch is An Amish Candy Shop Mystery Novella (No. 4.5). It can be read on its own (but why would you want to miss any of the books in this entertaining cozy mystery series). I sat down and quickly devoured this humorous story. I love the cast of characters that Amanda Flower has created for this series from Bailey King to Jethro, the polka-dotted pig. The descriptions of the sweet treats from Swissmen’s Sweets will have you craving something yummy (recipe at the end of book). There are delightful laugh-out-loud moments especially with Juliet Brody and her pet pig, Jethro. Juliet is determined her son, Aidan will wed Bailey very soon (they are dating, but no imminent proposal). The setting of Harvest, Ohio is bucolic. I like that it is a combination Amish and English area. The mystery suits the story and I enjoyed following Bailey as she solved the crime while giving Deputy Little credit. Botched Butterscotch is an amusing tale that will tide me over until Marshmallow Malice comes out. Botched Butterscotch is a delightful cozy mystery with precocious pigs, batches of butterscotch bars, a matchmaking mama, purloined philanthropy, and Mother’s Day mayhem.

    A fun addition to the series!

    In this 4.5 installment in Amanda Flower's An Amish Candy Shop Mystery series, Bailey's parents are visiting Harvest for Mother's Day and she has plans to take her mother and grandmother to a tea fundraiser for Abigail's Farm, a retreat for women recovering from addiction. During the tea, the money that was raised is stolen, and Bailey decides to find the thief. I thought this was a fun and delightful addition to the series, and the perfect little filler story to tide readers over until the May 26th release of Marshmallow Malice. I absolutely adore this series, and it's always a pleasure to spend time in Harvest with Bailey and the gang. Amanda Flower is a very talented writer, and when you pick up one of her books, you can always expect plenty of laugh out loud moments, well-developed characters, a charming setting, and a mystery that will keep you guessing. I highly recommend this series. As an added bonus, mouthwatering recipes are included at the end. I received an ARC from Kensington Books through NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

    Mother’s Day Visit

    Bailey King’s parents are visiting Harvest for Mother’s Day for the first time in a very long time and she has plans to take her mother and grandmother to a tea fund raiser for a local women’s charity. While at the tea, someone steals the money that was raised and Bailey steps in to help the local police with the Amish community as they try to recover the missing money. Amanda Flower is a gift writer. Her characters become friends and you can’t wait for your next visit with them. This novella was a great nibble to hold me over while I wait for Marshmallow Malice to come out. I adore all of her series and look forward to every release from the author.

    An Amish Candy Mystery

    An Amish Candy Mystery #4.5 Mother's Day is busy for candy shop owners Bailey and her Amish grandmother in Harvest, Ohio. And this year is busier than ever with Bailey's parents coming in for the weekend as well as catering a Mother's Day Tea. The Mother's Day Tea is a benefit for Abigal's Farm. A place for women recovering from addiction. Not everyone is on board for having "that type of place" near their homes. The money made will allow their work to continue so when the box of donations disappears during the tea, Bailey is there to "assist" the new Deputy with his first case. All the while Aiden's mom, Julia and Bailey's own mom are planning their wedding and they aren't even engaged! I love this short book. It's like a phone conversation with friends, just a quick catch up and I'm happy. I think Amanda may be the only person I've ever read that can successfully blend the Amish and Comedy! I loved this one! NetGalley/ April 28, 2020, by Kensington Books
