Sometimes you need a sweet tooth to take a bite out of crime . . .

Bailey King is living the sweet life as assistant chocolatier at world-famous JP Chocolates in New York City. But just when Bailey’s up for a life-changing promotion, her grandmother calls with news that her grandfather’s heart condition has worsened. Bailey rushes to Harvest, Ohio, where her grandparents still run Swissmen Sweets, the Amish candy shop where she was first introduced to delicious fudge, truffles, and other assorted delights.

She finds her grandfather is doing better than she feared. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for a local Englisch developer, whom Bailey finds dead in the candy shop kitchen—with Jebediah King’s chocolate knife buried in his chest. Now the police are sweet on her grandfather as the prime suspect. Despite the sincere efforts of a yummy deputy with chocolate-brown eyes, Bailey takes it on herself to clear Jebediah. But as a cunning killer tries to fudge the truth, Bailey may be headed straight into a whole batch of trouble . . .


Amanda Flower’s knows how to add the right about of sweetness to an edge of your seat mystery.

I’ve read a lot of cozies, but I’ve never tried an Amish series, I really didn’t know what to expect when I started the book, I sure didn’t expect to read 14 chapter the first day. Heck, it was so good I even went back to read the rest the story next day. The setting is very detailed, the characters are very easy to love and the mystery was totally a surprise, I thought for sure it was someone else.

The only downside I found was I felt this story was rushed. I just don’t see it possible for anyone to do all of the things the characters were able to do in just a couple of days.

All in all Assaulted Caramel is one mystery you shouldn’t pass up I am sure glad I tried it and can’t wait for book two in the series.
