How Jenn found the body was an excellent description that had me chuckling every time I thought of it.
Granted the book is short but I think well worth the read. Waiting for the next one in the fudge series and hopefully Jenn will write another.
I enjoyed this story very much it was a great novella to bring readers into this series even if they haven't read other books this one will have you wanting to learn more about the characters offered. I found myself enjoying this series and wanting to learn more about everyone!
The book is short, but the characters are interesting, and the pace flows well.
Good food, good friends, and a lovable Golden Retriever named Marley help solve this crime!
I started reading and was surprised the book was narrated in the first person from the point of view of Jenn, Allie's friend. All the previous books were from Allie's point of view - the owner of the Historic McMurphy Inn and fudge shop on Mackinac Island.
After the summer season ended, Jenn moved back to Chicago to concentrate on her event business, returning to Mackinac Island to visit Allie and spend Christmas there and compete in the Santa run. While Jenn is out jogging she stumbles across a dead Santa in a snow bank and now she and Allie must figure out whodunit.
There is one fudge recipe in the book, not Christmas themed.
The book was disappointing due to its short length and point of view switch. I thought for sure this was the series swan song and this is how it was going out. The book ended at the 80% mark and the last 20% is a preview of the next novel to be released in 2016 (written from Allie's point of view). The book is well written and quickly tied up a murder mystery but it was strange and not what I've come to expect from the Candy Coated Mysteries.
Following his usual trend, police chief Rex Manning jumps to the conclusion that Jenn is responsible for the murder and has used it as a ruse to recapture Shane’s attention. Turns out that was not the case. Apparently, not only did dead Santa aka Tim Slater have a stalker, there was trouble much closer to home.
Writing a novella or short story is an art. The author must get to the point quickly without repetition and being able to tie the ending up with all the questions answered. This did not happen with "All I Want for Christmas is Fudge". The conclusion was reached with no substantiation. The sudden blurting of “I know who did it”, just does not work.
With stilted writing and downright ridiculousness – what company would change their toll free number because of a stalker, would not a new number be easily found on their website? Nancy Coco made an error in putting out this book. The series was gaining traction, but this novella was a waste.
