Island Cozies! 
#1 in the Read Em and Eat Mysteries
by Nancy Coco

Welcome to the Historic McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop--where life is sweet, revenge is sweeter, and murder is here to to stay. . .

You Can't Fudge An Alibi

Allie McMurphy is up to her neck in renovations at the grand old hotel that's been in her family for generations. With its quaint Victorian charm--and world-famous fudge shop--the place is one of Mackinac Island's most beloved landmarks. 

Sure, every family has a skeleton or two in the closet. But Allie didn't expect to find an actual corpse inside hers, especially one Joe Jessup, who had a long-running feud with her dear departed grandfather. Which makes Allie the number-one suspect. 

Can she sniff out the culprit before another victim checks in?

Yes, this week's pick is islands. But no one said they had to be tropical. 😊

My ideal island has always be Mackinac Island. The first time I watched the movie Somewhere In Time, I was in love. However, I have learned more about this beautiful island from reading a few cozy mystery series. One such series is the Candy-Coated Mysteries by Nancy Coco, with the first in the series being, ALL FUDGED UP.

ALL FUDGED UP introduces readers to Allie McMurphy, a cast of wonderful characters, and beautiful Mackinac Island where you can only get around by riding bikes, or by horse. There are no cars on the island. And of course, FUDGE! Seriously, who needs the tropics when you can be surrounded by all flavors of fudge?

With a fabulous location, yummy food, and amazingly entertaining, wonderfully written mystery, ALL FUDGED UP and the entire Candy-Coated series is just what you want when you're craving the perfect cozy mystery!
Satisfy your mystery tooth and get a copy of ALL FUDGE UP today! And make sure to check out the entire series!

  1. Thanks, Lisa. I'm looking forward to more fun. Happy Monday!

  2. "Lisa Sent Me" Yum, all those pictures of fudge are making me hungary. I really do need to catch up on this series. After all the unpacking is done and our anniversary trip to Venice I'll hopefully be able to start reading more.
