Candy Apple Dead is a cozy mystery set in Colorado. I liked Sammi Carter's style of writing and enjoyed the mystery. But be warned - this is not a good mystery to read if you're trying to cut down on calories or sugar consumption. I wanted to dash out and buy some chocolate/toffee/candy after reading about the delicious recipes Abby comes up with for her candy shop.
From the cover:
No visit to Paradise, Colorado, is complete without a stop at Divinity Candy Shop for a little taste of heaven. For owner Abby Shaw, it's a sweet deal, too. When her Aunt Grace passed away, Abby inherited Divinity - and the opportunity to leave her career as a corporate lawyer and dump her cheating husband. Then life sours when her friend/possible boyfriend dies in a fire in his men's clothing store . . . and her brother becomes the number one suspect.
