LET'S GET COZY! HOT FUDGE FRAME-UP: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
HOT FUDGE FRAME-UP
A Fudge Shop Mystery
BY CHRISTINE DeSMET

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Candy shop owner Ava Oosterling mixes it up with a fudge judge with a grudge—who loses his life before he can pick a winner....

Ava is gearing up for the First Annual Arts Festival—a huge celebration that could draw national attention to her old-fashioned fudge shop in Door County, Wisconsin. She’s invited two celebrity chefs to go head-to-head with her in a fudge contest. Everyone is having a tasty time...until a judge for the festival is found dead.

To her shock, he’d been complaining around town that her Fairy Tale fudge flavors were...well, fudged. Now the sheriff is wondering if Ava fits the mold for a murder suspect. As Ava tries to square her reputation and find the real killer, she’s in for a whole batch of trouble....

Includes Delicious Recipes and Fudge-Making Tips!

I read (and didn't know) about the Belgian influence in Wisconsin. I have actually been to the indie bookstore, Mystery To Me, where she held her launch party for this new book! It's in Madison, and is a great bookstore on a very unique and charming street near UW Madison. My son walked down there almost every week or so to hit the nearby comic book store!

Besides the book sounding good with a judge getting murdered while judging a fudge contest and the sleuth is a suspect, I live in Wisconsin. I love Door County where this story takes place. I would say Door County is my favorite place to vacation in WI.

I did not realize until I went to her website that she actually lives in Door County. I discovered that Door County has the largest population of Belgians.

Those candy recipes pique my interest along with the story. Ava has her work cut out for her trying to find the real killer and clear her name.
