Fudge Bites by Nancy Coco takes us back to Mackinac Island, Michigan in October. Allie McMurphy owns the Historic McMurphy Hotel & Fudge Shop where she is getting ready to start renovations now that tourist season is over. Allie is dressed as zombie pinup girl for Night of the Walking Red which is a zombie walk to benefit the American Heart Association. She runs a quick errand and is heading through the back alley when she finds her cat, Carmella with blood on her. They find a man crumpled on the ground and he is not coming back to life. Maggs Vanderbilt steps out of the drugstore and instantly recognizes the victim as her son, Anthony. Someone used the zombie walk to take out the victim. Rex Manning is on the case, but Allie’s cannot help doing a little snooping. Allie needs to tread carefully because this is an explosive case.
Fudge Bites by Nancy Coco is the seventh A Candy-Coated Mystery. It can be read as a standalone for those new to this sweet series. Allie McMurphy loves living on Mackinac Island and looks forward to her first winter on the island. She has renovation planned for the second floor plus adding a rooftop deck. Allie is feeling a little lonely with her best friend, Jenn living in Chicago and others departing the island for the winter. Allie is a developed character who is friendly and relatable. She has some important decisions to make in Fudge Bites. I enjoyed the twisty whodunit with multiple suspects and unexpected action. I always enjoy a mystery that keeps you on your toes. Nancy Coco gives us beautiful descriptions of Mackinac Island in the fall. I can see how it can be challenging to live on Mackinac Island in the winter with the freezing temperatures, lack of activities and no ferry. Allie’s fudge making will have your mouth watering. There are recipes for brownies and various types of fudge included (Apple Cinnamon White Chocolate Fudge for instance). There is an excerpt from Death Bee Comes Her which is the beginning of a new cozy mystery series for Nancy Coco. I am curious to find out what happens next for Allie and the McMurphy. Fudge Bites is a spooktacular cozy mystery with fabulous fudge, roof renovations, a canine with a keen sniffer, twinkling treasure, zany zombies, and suspicious suspects.
Fudge Bites is available through Amazon* (Amazon UK) and other major booksellers in ebook and paperback (Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo for example). You can find a list of the books in A Candy-Coated Mystery series here. Death Bee Comes Her by Nancy Coco comes out December 31 through Barnes & Noble only (at this time). Thank you for dropping by today. Tomorrow I am sharing my review Christmas Angels by Nancy Naigle. It is a heartwarming and hopeful Christmas romance. I hope that you have a upbeat day. Take care and Happy Reading!
