Ready to learn about a new old series?
Today I am featuring author Sammi Carter who wrote the Candy Shop Mystery series.
This series contains 5 books.
No visit to Paradise, Colorado, is complete without a stop at Divinity Candy Shop for a little taste of heaven. For owner Abby Shaw, it was a sweet deal, too - inheriting Divinity gave her the opportunity to leave her career as a corporate lawyer and dump her cheating husband. But Abby's new life sours when a fellow merchant dies in a fire, with all clues pointing to arson . . . and Abby's brother as the number one suspect.
Includes candy recipes
When poisoned bon-bons end the life of a town trouble-maker, candy shop owner Abby Shaw finds herself trapped in an extremely sticky situation.
No one's happy when wealthy Felicity Asbury names herself director of the local arts festival. But when she's found dead, all evidence points to candy shop owner Abby Shaw, who must put aside her sweets to discover the twisted killer.
When corporate-lawyer-turned-candy-maker Abby Shaw witnesses a stranger being gunned down on the highway, she's convinced she's seen a murder. Problem is, there's no body. But days later, when a body does turn up, wishy-washy witnesses make things sticky. Even elbow-deep in hot syrup at Divinity candy shop, Abby is determined to find out the truth. And it's not as if she can take her sweet time figuring it out...
Includes Candy Recipes
Abby Shaw's life is sweet. She's settling into running the candy shop she inherited from her aunt, dealing with her busybody family, and maintaining a solid-if-slow relationship with local police detective Pine Jawarski. But Abby's smooth sailing turns into a rocky road when a friend asks her to audition for a musical with some considerably talented locals. Abby pops her head into the chaotic audition -- and finds a dead star center stage.

Answer to Whodunit Wednesday
The Postman Rings Once - Solution
"If it wasn't suicide," said Thomas, "then any one of us could have killed him. No one has a good alibi."
"True," Wilson agreed and turned to Sherman Holmes.
"True," Sherman agreed. "But..." And he raised a pudgy finger. "Only one of you lied about when you checked the mail". He lowered the finger, pointing it at Nigel Liggit. "You, Nigel, actually entered the front hall between 2:30 and 2:50. You steamed open the letter and read it's frightening contents. You got rid of the letter--a bad job, I must say--then loaded your uncle's gun and tracked him down."
"Bravo," Nigel said with a sneer. "But you could make up a similar story about either on of my brothers."
Sherman smiled. "Let's see Thomas's letter from that bill collector." Thomas pulled it from his pocket and handed it over. "Notice the shoe print?"
"That's mine," said Gerald, "from when I came in and stepped on the mail."
"And the water ring? Where did that come from?"
"Not from me," said Thomas. "My hands were full of luggage. I went right upstairs and unpacked."
Sherman turned to face Nigel and his incriminating martini. "When you checked the mail, you put your glass on top of Thomas's letter. That means you didn't check it at three p.m., but earlier--between the time of Gerald's shoe print and Thomas's removal of the collector's letter. "
Did you guess correctly?
