Dollycas¿s Thoughts Things are getting very sticky in Sugar
Things are getting very sticky in Sugar Grove and that makes for a fantastic cozy mystery.
Dani is right in the middle of another murder of investigation and the local sheriff is away on a cruise with Dani’s mother. He left Mitch Reynolds in charge. Mitch and Dani dated a few times and she does everything to avoid him. When her fabulous car, that she just got back from the mechanic, is vandalized he tries to ticket her for having broken headlights and taillights instead of being concerned about who wrecked her car. He is definitely in over his head when Dani finds Frank’s body. Of course, she becomes his prime suspect.
Jessie Crockett has created some truly wonderful characters, ones we love like Dani, her grampa, Piper, the owner of The Stack Shack and Dani’s best friend, Graham, the handsome Fish and Game Warden and Celedon, Dani’s sister who is doing anything she can to get Dani settled down and married. And those we don’t love so much like Knowlton and Mitch. I wanted to jump in the pages at more syrup over Mitch’s head more than once.
The mystery is top-notch and the dialogue is so well written. The perfect amount of humor and romance is blooming for more than just Dani. Her phone calls from her mother just cracked me up. I also enjoy learning all about making syrup and tapping the trees.
This is a fun and entertaining story for those of us who like our whodunits on the cozy side.

Although this is the 2nd book of this series, it is the 1st book I have read by Jessie Crockett.
Dani Greene's family has been in the maple syrup business for 4 generations. Dani believes that a cooperative of all the local sugar houses would be a great benefit to everyone. As Dani makes her rounds everyone seems eager to join in, everyone except Frank Lemieux that is. But then again everyone expected Frank to veto the idea. What wasn't expected was Frank's death, in his own sugar house. As Dani looks into his death, she realizes that Frank was being framed for all the hi-jinx that had been occurring. Enter Dani's family and the sexy Fish and Game Warden Graham, who all pitch in to solve the murder and to stop all the underhanded events.
FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
