Overview

Candy, Murder & Me: Mystery with a woman sleuth and Recipes is an 80,000-word cozy mystery set in Florida, in and around a dress design company, which co-stars Sigmund Freud, a psychoanalyst dachshund.

Here's a 4 star review that appeared on GoodReads.com and AlaskanBookCafe.com

I honestly had fun reading this book. It is fast paced and crazy. ..I could relate well to Cookie. She was hands down my favorite character in the book. I could imagine so many good times with her. I could see us sitting in the back seat of a cop car, looking at each other and asking , at the same time, 'what's your plan now?'.

We meet Cookie's family and I really loved the strong bond presented there. Cookie and Rhonda made a nice pairing. I could see Joey, (Cookie's brother), hooking up with Rhonda and PI Andy hooking up with Cookie. I hope there are future books with the four of them keeping open the business and getting into some zany predicaments.

Here's a little more about the story...When full-figure dress designer and candy addict Cookie Berelli discovers the PI she hired to clear her of embezzlement charges dead in her design studio, she investigates, to wacky results. For example, is Eugene Gemstone involved? After all, he is her number one fabric cutter at Florida Fashions, and he did start acting overemotional after he wore one of the dresses she designed into the ladies’ room at Chez Riso and got arrested. He's especially suspect now that he's disappeared with all of Cookie's candy stash. Then again, it could be that cute PI, Andy Shea, who shows up at the funeral of her dead PI, and makes her hear the love song from GONE WITH THE WIND in her head, or it could be just about anyone else on the planet.Kooky characters abound and so does Cookie's zany action. Care for a laugh or two and some great recipes?...This book's for you.

Recipes from her Norwegian and Italian heritage including Grandma Berelli’s Pralines (“Worth going to jail for”), Cookie’s Maple Candies (“So good they’re criminal”), and Nana’s Kringlas (“To kill for” - ), among others, are available throughout the story to break up the mayhem and available at the end, indexed by chapter.

Editorial Reviews

Tyler Malone
Caution: be prepared to resist temptation as Cookie (should be named Candy) munches on chocolates as she muddles her way through solving two mysteries. And if you weaken, she includes her family recipes of those delectable-sounding treats.

4 stars!

I honestly had fun reading this book. It is fast paced and crazy...I could relate well to Cookie...hands down my favorite character in in the book. I could imagine so many good times with her. I could see us sitting in the back seat of a cop car, looking at each other and asking , at the same time, 'what's your plan now?'

I hope there are future books with the four major characters in them.
