The book read at a steady pace. I expected more at the end. It just ended, lots not being explained.
This was the first book in this series that I have read. Maybe all of them end as cliffhangers, which do not
like. I wish all the book details would tell the buyer if they are stand alone.
This book featured more action and investigative work than most cozy mysteries. It also had a few instances of bad language that, while not the norm in cozies, was appropriate for the rough characters involved in the crime. Just something to be aware of.
All in all it was a great read, although I felt that more focus could have been placed on Halloween. It would have added a fun note while enhancing the spooky aspect.
Meanwhile husband and sheriff Beau is trying to solve a armored car robbery nearby, that one bag of money turns up in Taos. The driver was shot in the face and is intensive care. There are no real leads. This case weighs heavy on Beau and he spends most of his waking time trying to solve it.
Then we have 14 year old Sara Cook who is trying to hold her household together. Her dad died recently. Her mom is very ill with cancer. Her brother Matt has turned secretive and not supportive of the situation. Sarah pieces together some unsettling information while eavesdropping. She struggles how to handle the information, her mother and her failing schoolwork (and her brother.)
Connie Shelton has woven the story lines together to make an enjoyable mystery with elements of business and chocolate part of the mix. A return of an unusual person from her past also adds to the oddities that when thrown together make another Samantha Sweet mystery that is over all too soon. Recommended for all ages, this is another in a continuing series that you won't want to miss. If you never have read the series, do yourself a favor and start at the very beginning. Each book gets better and better!

This was the first I've read of this series as it was for a Halloween challenge but I really enjoyed the story. The plot is clever and was interesting to see how it all came together. The ending was good and has encouraged me to want to read more in the story. Sam comes across as much younger despite her grown up daughter. I really liked her and her husband too. It was good to see how Sara handled what she found out. Often its not that way. A fun cosy Halloween mystery.
