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 :  I didn’t realize that it was the third in a series but I don’t think that it hindered the reading experience.  Having read that you may want to read the other two books but not jump in any enjoy the books.
This  mystery is one involves a TV crew, an Ex, and a whole lot of suspects and suspicion. And that’s all I am saying because you need to read the book to enjoy the atmosphere.
The author really captures the blended living of the different types of people (including the TV crew from the city) with the local small town. The characters are all well written and you feel right at home with them and cant wait to turn a page to see what happens next. Its a great holiday read -so enjoy. Lisa
