Allie McMurphy is busy making yummy fudge for the summer holiday–until murder gives her something else to chew on. . .
Red, White, And Boom
It’s not Fourth of July on Mackinac Island without fireworks and fudge. The Historic McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop is supplying the treats–and Allie has hired Rodney Rivers, the biggest name in aerial displays, to create an unforgettable spectacle. Unfortunately, Allie finds him dead, covered with screaming chicken fireworks, just before the entire warehouse of pyrotechnics goes up in smoke. Is it arson or is it murder? Allie and her bichonpoo, Mal, must sift through the suspects until the killer is caught and the island can enjoy a star-spangled celebration.

Review: OMG I have another cozy series to catch up on. I am a sucker for foodie cozies. (And cute animals) This series has both, so I am totally in my element. Recipes in a story always make me happy and this one has ample fudge recipes

What makes this a great book?

I love the town. That's always the key to these stories. If I wish I lived there, its a good one. Its a tourist town and our sleuth owns a hotel and fudge shop. Please tell me where I can find a town like that, so I can visit or move there, please!

I love Allie and her boyfriend Trent.  And Mal, the bichonpoo is precious. He's a pretty smart pooch, because he sniffs out trouble on the island pretty well, or in this case, fires.

There's a lot going on, from the murder pyrotechnic technician, to the string of fires that look like arson and it seems like each time there's another incident things are getting closer to Allie and the McMurphy.

There's more to the story than the mystery too. There's a cat on the scene now too, a gorgeous calico that's taken up residence. I love when the cat came into the hotel and the chaos that ensued.

But back to the mystery, it is fast paced, and Nancy knows how to keep her readers guessing, because until you got to the last chapter, there was really no guessing whodunit.

Nancy Coco is definitely on my must read list now!
