Premeditated Peppermint

GIVEAWAY
FLOWER, AMANDA
PREMEDITATED PEPPERMINT

Someone's sweet on revenge

Christmas is Bailey King's favorite time of year. For her first Yuletide in Harvest, Ohio, the former big-city chocolatier is recreating a cherished holiday treat peppermint combined with molten white chocolate. But her sugar high plummets when her former boyfriend walks into the candy shop she now runs with her Amish grandmother. New York celebrity chef Eric Sharp and his TV crew have arrived to film an authentic Amish Christmas. Bailey's not about to let her beloved town -- and Swissmen Sweets -- be turned into a sound bite. Unfortunately, she gets more publicity than she bargained for when Eric's executive producer is found strangled to death -- and Eric's the prime suspect.

With Bailey's sheriff deputy boyfriend out to prove Eric's guilt, her bad-boy ex tries to sweet-talk her into helping him clear his name...and rekindle their romance to boost ratings for his show. Now, between a surplus of suspects and a victim who wasn't who she seemed, Bailey's edging dangerously close to a killer who isn't looking to bring joy to the world -- or to Bailey -- this deadly Noel.

My Review:

'Tis the season for murder and mayhem in Holmes County Amish country! Bailey is back and unfortunate enough to stumble upon another body in the third book of this quirky series. Interesting small town dynamics, an intriguing sheriff deputy who is edging towards something much more than just a friend and an array of eccentric secondary characters -- including Jethro the pet pig! - make this such a fun read! Lots of plot twists and comic relief make Premeditated Peppermint a cozy mystery that tickles the funny bone!
