I love when I find a new author and I can’t wait to share a cozy mystery author that is new to me!
The Amish Cupcake Cozy Mystery series is a new favorite of mine.
About the Series:
When her husband of thirty years runs off with a college student named Cherri, Jane Delight returns to Pennsylvania to work in her Amish sister’s cupcake store. Having lost everything in the divorce, Jane now finds herself sharing an apartment with two elderly ladies and their quirky cat.
But there is no time to despair. A man is murdered in the cupcake store, and now Jane and her sister, Rebecca, are the prime suspects. Enter brooding detective Damon McLeod, a Scot with a tragic past and a desire for justice.
Can Jane solve the murder, wrangle her new roommates, and stop herself from falling for the detective?
Or will she never get her new life on track?
Book 1: True Confections
Miss W’s Review of True Confections:
The book opens with Jane Delight (LOVE THAT NAME) and her husband go out for her 50th birthday to a fancy restaurant, which is very uncharacteristic of him. That could be because he is dumping her for his mistress who is pregnant with their baby. Not only that, but she is getting nothing in the divorce because as much as he would like to help her out, she signed a prenup and they need the money for the baby. Oh and they need the house to so get going! I laughed so much at the opening paragraph because this is so relateable and obviously her husband did this in public so she wouldn’t freak out.
Flash forward six months and Jane has settled into an apartment over her sister’s cupcake store. Luckily Jane has a twin sister who takes her in. Only thing is her sister is Amish and Jane has lost that community a long time ago.
I absolutely loved this book! The characters were likeable and fun. The story was well developed and I loved reading about the Amish community. This is a sweet clean mystery which will leave you guessing who done it.
BONUS! There are two Amish Recipes which I am totally trying. Shoo-fly Pie sounds yummy!
Book 2: Previous Confections
Miss W’s Review of Previous Confections:
Previous Confections is Book 2 in the Amish Cupcake Cozy Mystery series. I really enjoyed Book 1 True Confections and I loved this book just as much.
Seems as if Jane’s worst nightmare came true, meeting, Cherri, her ex=husbands new wife, and whats worse is that Cherri wants to team up with Jane to solve a murder. Add to the fact that Jane’s sister had a broken arm and Jane is in charge of operating the cupcake store with a bit of help from Matilda, Eleanor, and lets not forget Mr. Crumbles the kitty . I love Mr. Crumbles!
I really enjoy the character development and how relateable Jane is. The mystery is some twists and turns which is enjoyable and did I mention that I love Mr. Crumbles, he’s quite the snarky one and naughty!
This is a great whodunit in which I did not guest the murderer at all, not even close.
Book 3: Confection is Good for the Soul
Miss W’s Review of Confection is Good for the Soul:
Confection is Good for the Soul is Book 3 in the Amish Cupcake Cozy Mystery Series. I have really come to LOVE this series.
This is a great read. It is the third book and does stand alone, but if I were you I would read the first two FANTASTIC books in this series to get some back story.
I laughed out loud as some parts and there are twists to keep you guessing to the last page.
This is very well written mystery with great characters that I adore!
All books by Ruth Hartzler are clean and wholesome, and have happy, feel-good endings!
