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.

Allie McMurphy and her adorable Bichon-Poo pup, Mal (short for Marshmallow), are back in this third installment of the Candy-Coated Mystery series, and author Nancy Coco starts this book off with a bang . . . literally. A dead body and fireworks!

I really had a great time reading OH SAY CAN YOU FUDGE. As I mentioned above, Ms. Coco started this story off with action and it just kept getting better. Very fast paced with lots of clues to keep the reader guessing. I was eager to turn each page to see what happened next. The reveal brought with it a total surprise.

For those mystery lovers with a sweet tooth, author Coco includes tantalizing fudge recipes. Yum!

This explosively sweet mystery is a perfectly delightful read. Treat yourself to this one.
