Review; Botched Butterscotch (Amish Candy Shop Mystery #4.5) by Amanda Flower
Description from Goodreads
A slice of intrigue. . .
Mother’s Day is a sweet and busy time at the candy shop Bailey King runs with her Amish grandmother. This year is extra special, because Bailey’s parents are visiting Harvest, Ohio. Bailey’s father has rarely returned since leaving the Amish faith over thirty years ago, but Bailey is confident that the right treats can help sugarcoat any awkwardness. For Mother’s Day Tea at the local church, she’s whipping up her mom’s favorite: butterscotch fudge. All’s going well, until a sticky-fingered thief makes off with the money raised for a local women’s support group.
While Bailey tries to discover who stuck their fingers in the cookie jar, she encounters an assortment of suspects. It doesn’t help that Juliet, mother of Deputy Aiden Brody, is conspiring with Bailey’s mom to plan Aiden and Bailey’s wedding…though they’re not even engaged! Can Bailey find the culprit before events—both criminal and personal—boil over into disaster?
My Thoughts on the BookBotched Butterscotch was a charming read. The characters are interesting and the plot was engaging, especially as it focuses on rehabilitation. There's also the comic relief of the pig owned by Juliet, in addition to Juliet's efforts in planning the wedding of Bailey and Aiden, even if they're not engaged yet.
