“Love Connie Shelton’s work. She usually has me at the first word.”—5 stars, Terry Brown
It's the beginning of a new year at Sweet's Sweets pastry shop and chocolate factory, and Samantha Sweet finds herself busy as ever, especially when her top client comes in with a new idea. His travel firm is selling a new Travel the World itinerary for the jet-set, and Sam is to come up with special chocolates to make the spectacular trip even more memorable for his wealthy clientele. At $200 a box, she can't exactly say no. Things get a little sticky when a friend calls with a problem, which involves Sam going back to her old job (temporarily, at least) of breaking into houses. How she manages to juggle it all ... well, it just might involve a little magic.
Meanwhile, Beau answers the call to a traffic fatality that turns way more complex when he realizes he has a murder to solve. The couple's paths cross less frequently than they would like, but as luck would have it, Sam ends up providing some of the critical clues in Beau's case and the answers come as a surprise to both of them.

Sticky Sweet is an Excellent read! I have always enjoyed the time I spent with Sam in the bakery and now at the chocolate factory but in Sticky Sweets, I actually enjoyed that time even more than the mystery. The mystery was highly intriguing but her work and concerns about her business were even more fascinating with the challenges that keep coming up. Her growing team continues to be strong if lesser characters and who wouldn't love Beau. The books are moving from cozy or amateur detective to more procedural but Sam still stays involved and spending time with Beau and his team is interesting. Connie Shelton makes her characters feel so realistic; in fact, so do the stories, even in these light mysteries with a touch of fantasy. Is it possible that every book gets better?
