Spring has sprung in the charming tourist town of Fredericksburg, Texas, and one of the tastiest attractions is a trip to Tally’s Old Tyme Sweets—until a bizarre burglary leaves a bitter aftertaste . . .
Tally Holt is thrilled to see her new replicas of vintage sweets displayed in the window of Bella’s Baskets, a gift basket shop owned by her friend, Yolanda Bella. There’s just one problem—the creations appear to be melting. The ladies assume the culprit is the broiling heat of the Texas sun—until that night, the store window is smashed, and there’s only one thing missing: the replicas.
Tally is positively stumped. Clearly, the useless fake candies are more special than she bargained for—but why? When a rash of seemingly unrelated burglaries sweeps through the area, Tally is determined to sleuth out the answer—and stop a thief from killing more than the town’s appetite . . .
This is the third book in the Vintage Sweets mystery series by Kaye George.
I really liked this book. It features a vintage sweets shop which I think is just so super unique. My only drawback is the dual viewpoints sometimes confuse me. But once you get into the story and get past the awkwardness of the back and forth between Tally and Yolanda, the book just sails.
The mystery is made so much better since people they know are suspected to be involved in the murder. The shop orders plastic replicas of their popular sweets and surprisingly when put into the heat of the window display the plastic starts melting. Then the rocks they discover inside the candies turn out to be more than they bargain for. Such a cool concept for a mystery.
This is definitely a story that will keep you guessing which is pretty great since this is a story you want to be intrigued by.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
