Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon

Cozy eBook Mystery
Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon is my 8th read for 2017 and the first cozy mystery book I've read this year. As many of you may know, I enjoy reading cozy mystery novels.

Maple Syrup Murder is the first book in the 'An Oh Fudge!' series.

I was able to download Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon for FREE from Amazon to my Kindle. This eBook is approximately 61 pages in length. Below is my unbiased opinion of Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon.

I enjoyed reading Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon overall. but it was more of a novella than full length novel. I enjoyed the story and writing overall as well. The leading character, Ida Noe, and her best friend, Maura Sweeney, are no fuss, feisty women and seemed a bit gruff, but were otherwise were decent characters. The mystery and murder were interesting and I enjoyed reading how Ida Noe solved the mystery. 

The following is a plot summary for Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon from Amazon:
Welcome to Cider Island – a town where anyone who’s anyone knows something about someone. It’s just that kind of place. And things get a whole lot stickier for the residents when a businessman visiting the island ends up smothered at the local sugar bush. 
With maple syrup season in full swing, Ida Noe’s fudge shop is busier than a centipede at a toe counting contest – especially when she’s invited to showcase her world famous Maple Bacon Fudge at Sweeney’s Sugar Bush. All is sweet until some poor sap kicks the bucket in the sugarhouse and all fingers point to Ida’s best friend Maura Sweeney.

With the help of her lumpy black Lab and origami loving friend, Ida is determined to “tap” the real killer and prove that maple can indeed be murder.
Previously published as Maple Can Be Murder.
I am giving Maple Syrup Murder by Grace Lemon a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
