  • Who Likes Allie?

    There areso many details that just seem wrong. Allie depends on a retired couple in their 70s to do a lot of the work at her hotel. She expects 70+ Douglas to shovel show off the hotel roof and tells him he'll find it fun. Really? Douglas prepares the rooms for guests after being closed for a few months. Really? Does the author have any idea about prepping and cleaning hotel rooms? Liz finds out the information that leads to arrests but Allie solved the mystery? Hmm The older ladies that visut Allie in her rented apartment are made to look brash and foolish. She takes her little dog when going sleuthing for a murderer at midnight in cold conditions. Great pet owner! In previous books in series there is a lot of description about the steps of making fudge at the hotel, special equipment etc. In this book she makes it at her rented apartment and even at Frances and Douglas' house. This is the last time I'll read a book by this author. I read this one because it was Christmas themed and free.

  • YUMMY!

    Allie McMurphy is getting ready for Christmas and a move back into her newly restored apartment at her hotel on Mackinac Island. While it’s off season, the locals are kicking off the festivities and Alice finds a young woman passed out in the snow, when the young woman does from poisoning, Allie realizes that murder doesn’t take holidays. As Allie and the ladies try to solve the case, they need to stay one step ahead of the killer or become the next victim. I’m not sure why I have waited so long to try this series, but I am Glad the wait is over as there are quite a few books in this series I can binge on .while catching up! I really like the setting and have always wanted to visit Mackinac Island and now can’t wait to visit again and again with this well developed series and solid whodunit

  • A must read . You will just love the story and all

    Once again I was in my element reading the new Nancy Coco murder mystery on my favourite island which I miss during Covid. I feel like I am right in the thick of the story and hate for it to end. It is light Funny and the characters are amazing. Well done again Nancy.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An engaging cozy mystery!

    Have Yourself a Fudgy Little Christmas by Nancy Coco is the 8th A Candy-Coated Mystery. I have read and enjoyed each book in this charming series. It has been a pleasure getting to know Mackinac Island as well as Allie McMurphy and her friends. This book can be read as a standalone if you are new to the series since the author does provide the needed background information. I thought Have Yourself a Fudgy Little Christmas was well-written with steady pacing and developed characters. I love the descriptions of Mackinac Island during the holidays as well as the festivities. It sounds like a cold yet magical place. Allie is a strong, independent woman who is a whiz at creating fudge and loves her fur babies. The mystery has Allie and her dog, Mal once again finding a victim. I figured out the who right away, but the why was a bit of a conundrum. The reason for the murder is slowly revealed over the course of the story. I like that we get to learn more about Frances and her past. I enjoyed following the investigation to the conclusion. At the end of one riveting scene, I found myself laughing out loud. There was action and suspense which had the story moving along at a quick pace and kept me engaged. I liked that there was a complete wrap up. Allie cannot wait for the renovations to be completed on the hotel so she can move back in and go back to making fudge in the shop. She is also dealing with the return of Rex Manning’s ex-wife, Melonie. Just when we thought Rex and Allie’s romance was moving forward, Rex gets an unexpected visitor. Allie keeps bumping into a new man in town and there are sparks between them. I like the idea of a new love interest for Allie. Trent and Rex are not right for Allie (in my humble opinion). In Have Yourself a Fudgy Little Christmas, there are snowstorms, power outages, Christmas tree lighting, decorating contest, fudge making, and friendly neighbors. I was happy to see an old friend return to Mackinac Island for the holidays. There is a recipe for a sweet treat (fudge, cookies) after each chapter. I enjoyed this stimulating story. Have Yourself a Fudgy Little Christmas is a sweet cozy mystery with a precious pup, gregarious gossip, ex-wife woes, fabulous fudge, a familiar friend, DNA dilemma, and merry mayhem on Mackinac Island.
