I was so excited to read this book but sadly I was so disappointed! Isn't this supposed to be a mystery? Someone dies in the second chapter and then literally nothing happens regarding the mystery for like 50 pages. I was just skimming the pages and finally gave up. Maybe it got better.

    Maple Sweet Debut The Greene family has owned a maple syrup tre

    Maple Sweet Debut

    The Greene family has owned a maple syrup tree farm in New Hampshire for generations.  Also part of the family tradition is providing the syrup for the town’s annual All You Can Eat Pancake fundraiser for the local fire department.  Never mind that Dani’s Grampa wins every year, people still love to attend.
     
    At this year’s breakfast, Alanza Speedwell and Grampa are the last two eating when Alanza flops face first into her plate.  No, it isn’t a food coma, it was murder, and people begin to suspect that her syrup was poisoned.  Dani has been working hard to grow the family business, and this could be a huge setback if it doesn’t shut the place down all together.  And it's not like Alanza hadn't made plenty of enemies in the short time he'd been in town.  Can Dani find the killer before the business is the next victim?
     
    This was a delightful debut.  While I did sometimes feel like I was struggling to keep up with the setting, the characters and plot were never hazy.  They only got stronger as the book progressed, and I was sucked into the story, not wanting to put it down until I saw how everything ended.  Since I love maple syrup myself (the real stuff, forget the imitations), I had some strong cravings while reading this book, and the two recipes in the back look like they would taste great.  There’s some great humor to this book, especially involving Dani’s love life and the exotic animals running loose in the area.
     
    My only regret is that I wish I had read this book sooner.  I’m looking forward to revisiting Dani and her sweet world in the very near future.

    Welcome to Sugar Grove, New Hampshire. You are just in time for

    Welcome to Sugar Grove, New Hampshire. You are just in time for the annual pre-Thanksgiving pancake-eating contest sponsored by the Sap Bucket Brigade, aka the firefighters auxiliary. The Greene family always provides the syrup and Dani Greene—a fourth-generation maple syrup maker in helping her family carry on the tradition. She is even trying to expand the family business, Greener Pastures, by getting their syrup an organic certification and adding to their product line. All her work screeches to a halt when one of the pancake eating contestants, Alanza Speedwell, drops face first into her stack of flapjacks. Of course the syrup is immediately questioned.

    Dani knows the police—including her ex-boyfriend—are barking up the wrong tree, and she’s determined to pull her loved ones out of a very sticky situation. The odds may be stacked against her, but she’s got to tap the real killer before some poor sap in her own family ends up trading the sugar house for the Big House…

    Dollycas’s Thoughts

    This is terrific zany debut. It was so much fun to read because in addition to the syrup problems there were a bunch of crazy exotic animals on the loose. It all starts when Dani sees a mountain lion and the wild ride doesn’t end until the final page.

    Dani (there is some secret about her name) is a fantastic protagonist and she sure has that animal magnetism when it comes to tracking down the animals running around, drawing in Graham, the Fish and Game Warden and a killer. She is a what some would call a petite woman but her height or lack thereof doesn’t hold her back. She is a strong woman and she is ready to take on anyone to clear her family’s name. Her family’s main concern is to get her married off. I wanted to jump into the pages and slap her sister! She drove me nuts with they way she treats Dani!!

    Crockett has really impressed with the mystery she has stacked for us to enjoy. There were plenty of suspects and sticky situations. I love the humor in this story. The dialogue between Graham and Dani was so well written and enjoyable to read. They are quite a pair. Of course, the New Hampshire setting was beautiful. I wish I had read this book when it came out in October, the story matches that season perfectly. I could almost smell the burning leaves and the ton of food on the Greene Thanksgiving Day table.

    The next Sugar Grove Mystery, Maple Mayhem, comes out July 1. It will be one of the first books I grab as soon as it arrives!!
