My Nails and My Book Review - Assaulted Caramel by Amanda Flower


Title: Assaulted Caramel
Series: Amish Candy Shop Mystery #1
Author: Amanda Flower

Goodreads Summary: 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 . . .

My Review: **I voluntarily read this ARC**

This was a great start to a new series. It had a great mystery and awesome characters. The setting was wonderful, and I wish it was real so I could visit! I'm definitely looking forward to the next book.

My Manicure: Mmmm, chocolatey drips. I was going to do chocolate covered caramels, but I don't have a caramel colored polish. I started with a base of Zoya Cinnamon. Then I used What's Up Nails drip vinyls and Philly Loves Lacquer 6PM Thanksgiving Coffee Run for the chocolate drips.
