Cozy Food Friday

That means it's time to share a recipe from 
another great cozy mystery!

Today I'm featuring 
Book 1 in the Amish Sweet Shop Mysteries
by Naomi Miller

In the small town of Abbott Creek, IL, Mystery is a part of everyday life. 

Katie Chupp spends her days at The Sweet Shop, baking and taking care of customers . . . not exactly a profession where one expects to be thrown into the midst of mysteries and murder investigations.

But when the bakery is broken into, someone has to find the thief . . . someone has to solve the problem of where to do the baking, how to get the orders to customers - and what to do about the messy thief who is trying to ruin the town's Independence Day celebration.


Naomi Miller mixes up a batch of intrigue, sprinkled with Amish, Mennonite, & English characters, adding a pinch of mystery - and a dash of romance!

Naomi’s day is spent focusing on her writing, editing, and blogging about her experiences with writing. When she's not working diligently to finish the next book in her Sweet Shop Mystery series. Naomi tries to make time for attending workshops and writers conferences. Naomi is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) organization. 

Naomi also enjoys traveling with her family, singing inspirational/gospel music, taking a daily walk, and witnessing to others of the amazing grace of Jesus Christ.


On to the recipe!

My Book Beginnings

Katie Chupp felt a chill run through her as she unlocked the door to The Sweet Shop. Hesitating, she turned and looked around, taking in the scenery around her.

My 56 (56%)

The tears were streaming down both of her cheeks, but she paid no attention to them as she continued to pray.
