    The main character is so immature, so petulant, it is off-putting and almost disgusting. The handsome Pastor....oh please, that she flirts with like a 13 year old....the story is unbelievable, the characters are shallow and not at all thought out. Her red hair is supposed to tell us that her odd behavior is explained away by that. Oh, come on. I could not finish it.

    Fudge-Laced Felonies by Cynthia Hickey was my first introduction to Christian Cozy Mysteries, and what an amazing impression it left on me! The story opens with Summer Meadows looking for a murderer in church, of all things! This already grabbed my attention, thinking...really?This book was so fun and easy to read, I had a hard time putting it down. I kept thinking to myself, seriously, how can I be enjoying and sometimes laughing at the loveable actions of these characters? Who ever thought that murders could be woven into a sweet, and wholesome mystery? Summer just opened a candy store in town when she stumbles upon something strange in her rose garden, and the detective side in her pops out and gets her into all kinds of trouble.Juggling her emotions between two love rivals, a supporting group of friends and family, she digs herself deeper and deeper into this mystery, often calling on God for guidance to help her make the right choices.I love the innocence of the characters and the plot, as it reminded me of how books could whisk you away for the pure enjoyment of reading and letting your imagination add to the written word.This was a stand alone book, but can't wait to finish off the series, as the Cozy Mystery genre seems to continue with the main character and her sometimes off beat friends and family, finding and solving crimes to a final and satisfying outcome.As an adult, I loved this book. Sometimes we just need a little simplicity to balance out our real life. Diamonds, chocolate, mystery, and hint of romance...good to the very last drop.

    This book contains a very real young woman, late-twenties if I read the clues correctly, whose inner voice spoke clearly about her struggle to grow as a Christian woman. Her aunt was a strong foil and guide - very real. I enjoyed watching Summer struggle and mature a little in this book. Her encounter with the "vamp" from her high school years started off well. Her visit to the woman's home, and the insights she gained about her rival were well done. Then the rival died. I felt cheated of the opportunity to see Summer and this woman put aside high school leftovers - the more mature Summer and this woman could have connected, and helped the novel become a deeper read and an even better whodunnit.The two sides to this read: I felt this book had been written by two people, who shuffled the story like a deck of cards. As I read (I kept reading because of Summer, and I wanted to find out about the bury-er of the diamonds - which was never satisfactorily clear, by the way), I felt that someone had written a high school romance novel and tried to stuff Summer into it. I could almost draw a line between the realistic life of the character and the romance novel sugar buzz.If the guy had real character, he'd have been a regular guy and asked her out. His dialogue and character needed a dose of "guy", not a "handsome prince from a romance novel."There were also a few scenes with the chocolate process - I was left feeling that the author had not experienced working with/decorating chocolate. Fingertips will not make detailed lettering on top of a piece of candy.The mystery was a good one and had some good hooks, but was very choppy. This is a good first draft of a book that could be something with a few more revisions.

    From the lead, "I marched into church on Sunday - not to search for God, but to find a killer," spunky heroine Summer Meadows captures your heart with humor even in the darkest situations, as you journey with her to solve a diamond mystery. A light, easy read, this page turner takes you into the Ozark foothills. Set in a small town, Summer owns a candy store and is up to her wrists in chocolate, when she's not knee deep in trouble playing detective.Hooked from the lead, I was riveted in the mystery and completed the novel in several readings. When interrupted, I couldn't wait to return to Summer's world of chocolate, diamonds, and mystery.Rich with fresh similes and metaphors, readers savor a taste of Southern grit as two handsome men compete for Summer's attention, but only one of them truly loves her. She must decide between Man of God, Ethan, with rough, working hands, or smooth-talking Nate with hands softer than her own. Nate says all the right things while Ethan teases like a childhood friend, leading Summer to believe that he thinks of her as a sister. Then there's beautiful Terri Sue who once dated Ethan and attempts to pick up where she left off. Summer knows her natural beauty can't complete with her store-bought façade.Summer is down-to-earth, but feisty. Used to being in control, she has to learn to let God guide her steps and relinquish control to the One who can make an eternal difference in her life. She's a Christian who attends church every Sunday, but grows in her faith through her struggles and learns to depend on God to see her through.Have you ever treasured your flower garden and thought it worth gold? Summer's rose garden is worth a small fortune in cash and diamonds, and she must solve the mystery of who killed her prized rose bush before she ends up a dead summer flower.Candy-Coated Secrets is the second book in the Fudge-Laced Felonies series - Heartsong Presents. If you love humor and mystery entwined, snag both books for great summer reads. See [...] for more information. ISBN-978-1-60260-181-9, $6.95 paperback, 244 pages, 22 chapters of love and mystery.
