Five-Alarm Fudge (A Fudge Shop Mystery, #3) by Christine DeSmet

I have a tasty treat to tell you about today. You know I love my cozy mysteries, and there is a new part available now for one of my favorites. It is third installment of the Fudge Shop Mystery series, which features one of my favorite heroines, Ava Oosterling.

From the back of the book:
It’s autumn in Fishers’ Harbor, Wisconsin, and fudge shop owner Ava Oosterling is busy preparing for the harvest festival and a visit from some royal relatives who live in Belgium. According to Ava’s grandpa, a famous divinity fudge recipe from the 1860s is hidden somewhere in a local historical church—a treat fit for a prince.

But when a fire in the church reveals the body of a murdered man, it looks like someone is willing to go to any length to possess the valuable secret to the divinity fudge. As Ava searches for the killer—and the recipe—she could use a little divine intervention, because she may have bitten off more than she can chew…

My thoughts:
Ava is, and probably will remain, my absolute favorite part of this series, she is so unique and refreshing. I know if I knew someone like her we would be fast and forever friends. She has such a sweet and yet daring personality. My husband has not read the series, but his favorite part is the fudge.  He always wants to know what the new flavors are in each part. As you can see from my pictures, he made a shopping list and I made fudge!

All of the characters are fabulous and the setting is charming. I have never been anywhere near the Great Lakes area but I certainly would love to visit this area with it’s rich Belgian history. The mystery is well written and I found the pace a perfect page turner. I also loved the further development of the relationships. Dillon is really growing on me but I still want to see more of Jordy.

If you are looking for a great series I recommend to grab this beautiful written mystery by Christine DeSmet.
