TAILS, YOU LOSE by Carol J. Perry

Book 3 in the Candy-Coated Mystery series 
by Nancy Coco

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 enjoyed 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!

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

Book 2 in the Witch City Mystery series 
by Carol J. Perry

Her instincts may be killer--but can she catch one this wicked?

After losing her job as a TV psychic, Lee Barrett has decided to volunteer her talents as an instructor at the Tabitha Trumbull Academy of the Arts--known as "The Tabby"--in her hometown of Salem, Massachusetts. But when the school's handyman turns up dead under seemingly inexplicable circumstances on Christmas night, Lee's clairvoyant capabilities begin bubbling to the surface once again. 
The Tabby is housed in the long-vacant Trumbull's Department Store. As Lee and her intrepid students begin work on a documentary charting the store's history, they unravel a century of family secrets, deathbed whispers--and a mysterious labyrinth of tunnels hidden right below the streets of Salem. Even the witches in town are spooked, and when Lee begins seeing visions in the large black patent leather pump in her classroom, she's certain something evil is afoot. But ghosts in the store's attic are the least of her worries with a killer on the loose. . .


Author Carol. J. Perry has conjured up a good mystery, brewed with a paranormal flare.

Lee Barrett is back in this second installment of the Witch City Mystery series. She’s is a strong protagonist with mystical powers. Cat lovers will simply adore O’Ryan her cat. It was fun reading scenes involving him.

There were wonderful twists and turns. So many that I wondered if it was all done with smoke and mirrors. But it was done by a talented author who clearly loves her craft of writing.

TAILS, YOU LOSE is an enchanting story that will hold readers in its spell.  

This title is available now.
