Town in a Maple Madness (Candy Holliday Series #8) by B. B. Haywood

The New York Times bestselling author of Town in a Cinnamon Toast returns to Cape Willington, Maine, where blueberry farmer Candy Holliday springs ahead into sleuthing...

The imminent arrival of spring has the locals gearing up for their sweetest celebration ever—the first annual Maple Madness Weekend. Along with maple sugar house tours, a community-wide marshmallow roast, and a weekend-long pancake breakfast, restaurants will be serving up special maple syrup dishes. But the weekend festivities are put in jeopardy when things start to get sticky...
One of Candy’s friends is accused of stealing sap from a rival’s sugar maple trees, and landscaper Mick Rilke is found dead, floating down the river wrapped up in a fisherman’s net. As Candy taps into Mick’s life, his unsavory side comes to light, as well as a possible connection to both crimes. Now it’s up to Candy to follow the flow of suspects to a cold-blooded killer...

The first 50 pages have really dragged. I hope it will pick up soon. No real story yet.

Good but not as good as others. Not enough dialogue

Cape Willington is getting ready for it's first Maple Madness weekend, which features all things maple. Candy Holliday is planning to help out is several areas throughout the weekend but her plans change when she is sumonded to a neighbors house and told about sap being stolen from their trees and they are blaming Candy's friend and want her to talk to him. Candy can't believe her ears, she knows there must be a mistake. She sets out to find her friend and gets sidetracked along the way.When she is finally able to follow the clues and find Neil, he is not able to help her fill in any of the blanks that don't add up. Candy is up to her neck in clues that just don't add up. This is my favorite book in this well loved series. It is fast paced and full of excitement.

This sticky whodunit will have you glued to the pages! It’s always so exciting for me when a new Candy Holliday book comes out. I look forward all year to getting a hold of it, and settling down for hours of cozy mystery enjoyment. TOWN IN A MAPLE MADNESS did not disappoint! As is common with this series, the Prologue is from the POV of the murder victim, and is happening during the death scene. This one was “slightly” more graphic than in the past, but not so much so as to turn me off from reading it. There was so much going on in this eighth installment of the Candy Holliday Mysteries. Between the Maple Madness Weekend, the discovery of the body, and then the investigation, along with other side storylines, Candy had her hands full! Just like Candy, readers will find themselves in the middle of so many things that it could become overwhelming. However, author Haywood writes in nice short chapters that serve as a reminder to breathe more often during the excitement of the story. And excitement there is! It feels to be to be the most action packed story yet. It’s not all drama and mayhem in TOWN IN A MAPLE MADNESS. There are lovely scenes too, and a happy surprise or two as well. And food! Lots of yummy food! So make sure to check out the recipes in the back of the book. Candy Holliday fans, you’re sure to love TOWN IN A MAPLE MADNESS. It serves to remind readers why we became fans of this series in the first place!

Town In A Maple Madness is the 8th book in the A Candy Holliday Mystery series. Another exciting story featuring Candy and her dad, Doc, and their friends in Cape Willington, Maine. Spring is near and sap is running and the residents of Cape Willington are looking forward to the Maple Madness Weekend and the opening of a renovated warehouse that will be used as a community center. But as the crowd is beginning to assemble for the opening ceremonies the crowd needs to be dispersed as the body of a local landscaper, Mick Rilke, has just been pulled out of the river close by. Just the day before, Hutch Milbright informed Candy that her neighbor and friend, Neil Crawford has been stealing sap from his trees. Candy begins to look at Milbright’s trees and at Crawford’s property and begins to think that someone had been tapping his trees, but she is sure that it wasn’t Crawford. As she is following recent tire tracks she soon believes that the two events might in some way be related. But she needs to find out soon before another attempt is made on her life. Another well- written story from B. B. Haywood with most all of regular characters coming back once again. Delicious recipes are also included with the book. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
