She is also taking this time to decide if she wishes to continue living the Amish way of life or if she wants to venture out away from that lifestyle. During the filming accidents keep happening and Charlotte realizes that they are really accidents someone is purposely making bad things happen. She decides that she must keep an eye out on Bailey and figure out who is trying to cause her cousin problems. Things go from bad to worse when Jethro is brought into the picture. Can Charlotte figure out who the bad guy is before something truly bad happens or will her cousin lose her show altogether?

    A simply sweet and cozy read

    This novella, book 3.5 in the series to be exact, is the perfect quick read to hold you over before book four in the Amish Candy Shop series is released. Told from cousin Charlotte’s point of view, Bailey is off to NYC to film her new candy making show, Bailey’s Amish Sweets. On the set things behind to happen that makes it clear SOMEONE is out to ruin Bailey and her show before it even hits the airway. But all isn’t as it seem sat Gourmet TV and Charlotte finds herself not only on Englischer TV but also doing a little sleuthing of her own to find out who has it in for her cousin. Love this series by Amanda Flower. Actually I like all of this author’s writing. She keeps the story moving, fun and engaging. Can’t wait for Toxic Toffee to be released in June. A simple, cozy, and sweet read!

    Delightful

    Criminally Cocoa by Amanda Flower is An Amish Candy Shop Mystery novella (No. 3.5). Charlotte Weaver is thrilled to be in New York City with her cousin, Bailey King for the filming of Bailey’s Amish Sweets. Bailey is creating a hand woven chocolate Easter basket using tempered chocolate when the double boiler explodes. Glass and chocolate are sent flying around the set., but, thankfully, no one was injured. The next day, Juliet Brody and her comfort pig, Jethro arrive to be a part of the show and publicity photos. While shooting photographs in the park, a loud horn sounds which scares poor Jethro and sends him running into the park. Charlotte is concerned that someone is trying to sabotage the show as the small incidents continue. With Bailey already nervous about the filming, Charlotte decides to investigate on her own. Can Charlotte unmask the saboteur? Join Charlotte, Bailey, Cass and Jethro on their New York City adventure in Criminally Cocoa. Criminally Cocoa picks up where Premeditated Peppermint ended. We join Bailey, Charlotte and Cass in New York where they are filming the first season of Bailey’s Amish Sweets. Bailey asked Charlotte to come along and be her assistant on the show. Criminally Cocoa is told from Charlotte’s point-of-view. It was humorous to see New York City through Charlotte’s eyes. Charlotte grew up Amish and has yet to join the church. She views things differently from Englishers. I thought Criminally Cocoa was well-written with steady pacing. It was nice to learn more about Charlotte in this story. When Bailey blames herself for the explosion of the double boiler, Charlotte wants to help prove it was not her cousin’s fault. Charlotte has watched Bailey solve three crimes and puts that knowledge to use. The mystery was straightforward. Readers will have no problem solving it before the reveal. However, it is the right type of mystery for the length of the story. While the story focuses on the group in New York, we do get updates on their friends back home in Harvest, Ohio. I especially enjoyed the addition of Juliet Brody and her polka dotted pig, Jethro. Their antics provided me with plenty of laughs. It is always delightful to read one of Amanda Flower’s books. I am eager to read Toxic Toffee which is the next An Amish Candy Shop Mystery.

    Amish Crime Solving in the Big Apple

    This novella is part of the Amish Candy Shop Mystery Series. While it is built on prior episodes, it stands alone well. This book takes place in New York City while the ladies are filming the new television series and is told from Charlotte's point of view. The plot is great with plenty of interest generating bits. The book is complete with an Easter time candy recipe. I received this ARC for free and this is my honest review.

    Cute short book in the Amish Candy Shop series!

    Criminally Cocoa is a chocolate amuse bouche for fans of the Amish Candy Shop series while awaiting the next full-length series entry in June 2019. Bailey takes her Amish cousin, Charlotte, to New York City to tape the pilot for Bailey’s new cable TV show, Bailey’s Amish Sweets. Luckily, Charlotte is in rumspringa and has more freedom before joining the Amish church. During the first day, a suspicious accident occurs on set. Charlotte, with the help of production assistant Todd, investigates. Criminally Cocoa is a novella that moves Bailey’s story forward so is a must-read for series fans. While it can be read as a standalone, it is better to start with one of the full-length books in the series. This book is written from Charlotte’s first-person view and is clearly meant more as a fish-out-of-water tale than a true mystery. For series fans, it is a 3.5 star read rounded up to 4 stars! Thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
