This is a quick, fast mystery. I liked the lead character and the fact she doesn't take any guff. I thought the ending was tied up a little too loosely, but it worked for me anyway. The picture Sammi Carter paints of Divinity's Candy Shop is wonderful. You can almost smell the chocolate and sugar and see the jars full of candy treats. Can't wait to read her next one. Also comes with candy recipes at the back of the book. By the end of this one,I couldn't wait to try out the toffee recipe!

I wanted to like this book, but found it only just ok. It's the typical cozy scenario - a single woman in a cute job finds herself in the middle of a murder that she feels compelled to solve herself. It felt too predictable, too similar to many other small town women sleuth cozies. Plus, all the talk about candy made me so hungry!! I'm hoping this series develops a little more depth and personality. I'd like to see more of the small town characters fleshed out a bit more too.

Promising start to an interesting new series. Author needs to make the heroine less emotional and as intelligent as expected of someone who's been an attorney for 10 years before it will be as appealing as it ought to be.

Quick and easy read. Keeps you guessing till the very end. Interesting characters. The only complaint I could have is that the ending was a little too easy. But then again it is a cozy so I guess I'm just being picky. This is the first in this series and I will definitely be reading the rest!!!

Fast and fun read. I love the small town candy shop setting. Solving murder mysteries in between making sweets sounds like a dream job to me, and I just love the idea of including candy recipes in the back of the book.
