Overview

No visit to Paradise, Colorado, is complete without a stop at Divinity Candy Shop for a little taste of heaven. For owner Abby Shaw, it’s a sweet deal too. When her Aunt Grace passed away, Abby Shaw inherited Divinity—and with it the opportunity to leave her career as a corporate lawyer and dump her cheating husband. Now she spends her time serving up delectable treats—and performing the occasional deductive feat…

There’s no use sugar-coating it—no one in Paradise can stand Savannah Horne. The former local girl is now the trophy wife of a ridiculously wealthy businessman. And she’s swept back into town just in time to enter Divinity’s Tenth Annual Confectionary Competition—and stir up trouble. But some poisoned bon-bons will guarantee that Savannah won’t make it out of Paradise alive, trapping Abby in an extremely sticky situation…

Includes Candy Recipes

If you're looking for mind candy this book is for you. It's an easy read for a summer day in your hammock. The main character is likeable and there are enough story twists to keep it interesting. I would highly recommend this book, especially if you are a fan of Leslie Meier's holiday mystery series.

After being away from Paradise for twenty years, Abby is doing her best to prove she can go home again. Her Aunt Grace left her the Divinity Candy Shop and Abby is working hard to make it as successful as her late aunt did. She is slow to make changes as she keeps much of the traditions including the three day Confectionary Competition. She prays all will go smooth but her hopes are dashed when the runner up Evie accuses the winner Savannah Horne of cheating by using a recipe downloaded from the web.------ That accusation proves to be the catalyst as other community members who were wronged by Savannah make it clears they want her to leave as she has before. Abby¿s cousin hates her because has on her she slept with her then fiancé before they married and her sister hates her because she never came home to see her sick parents. When Abby finds Savannah¿s murdered body, she decides to investigate because her cousin is a prime suspect.----- Sammi Carter has written an exciting one sitting amateur sleuth tale that will have readers feel sympathy towards the vicious victim as no one should die without a soul mourning their loss. In fact most townsfolk celebrated her death. Anyone who knew Savannah is a person of interest because to know her is to hate her. Abby is slowly making a home in the community and with her family though she remains headstrong and rejects their advice. Readers will appreciate her spunk and desire to insure justice occurs.----- Harriet Klausner
