Murder at the Taffy Shop

Paperback, 304 pages
Expected publication: March 30th 2021 by Kensington Publishing Corporation
Cape Cod bicycle shop owner Mackenzie Mac Almeida and her mystery book club find a certain accusation of murder quite the stretch ...
When your mother is an astrologist and your dad is a minister, you learn to keep an open mind. Which is just what Mac loves to do--exercise her mind by puzzling out fictional clues in the mystery novels she reads and discusses with her Cozy Capers Book Group.
But now Mac's friend Gin has found herself in a sticky situation. After wealthy genealogist Beverly Ruchart is found dead outside Gin's taffy shop, the candy maker becomes a person of interest. When it's revealed that Beverly was poisoned the night Gin brought a box of taffy to a dinner party at Beverly's house, she's bumped to the top of the suspects list. It's up to Mac and her Cozy Capers crime solvers to unwrap this real-life mystery. But this time they might have bitten off more than they can chew...
This is the second book in the Cozy Capers Book Group mystery series by Maddie Day.
It didn’t really hit me until now what an interesting dynamic Mac’s life must have had growing up with a mother who did astrology and a dad who was a minister. Makes you wonder how the two of them ever hooked up. I have book one of this series in my Kindle but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. This gives me incentive to do just that.
Great mystery. Lots suspects to keep Mac busy and her mind off her relationship with her boyfriend, Tim, which seems a bit rocky, if I’m honest. And that bird, dang, what a scene stealer! This was quite the page turner!
Just so much to love about this series I can’t get enough.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
