Welcome to the Historic McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop - where life is sweet, revenge is sweeter, and murder is here to to stay....
You can't fudge an alibi....
Allie McMurphy is up to her neck in renovations at the grand old hotel that's been in her family for generations. With its quaint Victorian charm - and world-famous fudge shop - the place is one of Mackinac Island's most beloved landmarks. Sure, every family has a skeleton or two in the closet. But Allie didn't expect to find an actual corpse inside hers, especially one Joe Jessup, who had a long-running feud with her dear departed grandfather. Which makes Allie the number-one suspect. Can she sniff out the culprit before another victim checks in?

Vacation with mystery and fudge in Michigan

ALL FUDGED UP is a book that would be great to take along to read on a vacation, or to read for a vicarious vacation in your own back yard flower garden. The setting is the tourist town on Mackinac Island in Michigan, which has hosted tourists for over a hundred years. Allie McMurphy has spent all her summers on Island, working with her grandparents in their McMurphy Hotel. Now, after graduating from culinary school and developing "adult" alcoholic fudge recipes for their famous fudge shop, Allie is returning to run the hotel since both grandparents are gone with the recent death of her grandfather.

Trouble comes when Allie begins some much needed renovations and finds the dead body of one of her grandfather's old friends in a closet. Since the hotel had been locked up, Allie becomes the main suspect. On this small island, everyone takes sides--green ribbons for Allie's innocence, purple ribbons for her guilt. Yep, lots of folks consider her a "fudggie" or a newcomer. So what can Allie do to prove her innocence and become one of the Islanders so her family's hotel will become a success under her ownership?

One of the best mysteries within a cozy that I've read recently. The "sides" taken by the characters seems very real. Allie is very personable, as is her new puppy, Mal ( marshmallow), who is one of the best dog characters ever! Histories develop within the town and the hotel, with secrets galore. The fudge recipes are definitely "adult" and come throughout the book. Excellent start to a new series. I listened to this on Audible, which added a lot to my enjoyment.

Not very sticky

Another enjoyable, forgettable cozy. A nice few hours, but nothing to stay with you. Maybe I'll try one of the recipes.
