Criminally Cocoa (An Amish Candy Shop Mystery) by Amanda Flower [REVIEW]


For Easter this year, Charlotte Weaver is leaving Amish country with her cousin Bailey on her first trip to New York City. She’s thrilled to see the skyscrapers and Times Square, and even more excited to help Bailey on the set of her new cable TV show, Bailey’s Amish Sweets. For the first episode, Bailey is making her famous hand-woven chocolate Easter baskets. But what ought to be a seamless shoot keeps hitting snags, and Charlotte begins to wonder if someone is out to make her sweet cousin look bad.

With Bailey feeling nervous about being on camera, Charlotte decides to keep her suspicion of sabotage to herself. But she knows that Bailey has a dangerously jealous rival hiding among her fans at the Gourmet Television network. As the mishaps get increasingly dangerous, Charlotte will have to sift out the saboteur before her trip to the Big Apple turns fatally bitter.


This novella (book #3.5 in the series) is told from the POV of Charlotte, who is Amish instead of Bailey who is English. It was a fun change of pace for more than one reason.
