Author B.B. Haywood has written yet another great mystery in Town In a Sweet Pickle. This novel is book number six in the Candy Holliday Mystery Series. The story line is wonderful and the characters are great. I've had pickled cucumbers before and it was interesting to read about poison as an ingredient. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.
Candy has to find out who has poisoned the pickles before someone else gets killed. Candy finds herself revealing a lot of mysteries about the people around her that she never knew.
?Good food . . . Endearing characters.”?Sheila Connolly, New York Times bestselling author
In the quiet coastal community of Cape Willington, Maine, Candy Holliday is a local farmer who dutifully tends to her blueberry fields?and steps in to solve the occasional murder . . .
When Candy organizes a cooking event for her local newspaper, the town’s most prominent citizens turn out to witness the popular cookbook author Julia von Fleming serve as a guest judge. But when Julia comes close to consuming a poisoned pickle, she begins to suspect someone in Cape Willington is trying to kill her?and Candy is completely jarred to be among the suspects.
But the first taste was just a sample, and soon more jars of poisoned pickles begin to pop up around town. In the face of a pickled poisoning spree, Candy will have to track down the culprit to make sure her own name stays well-preserved. Along the way, she’ll pull the lid off a briny barrel of blackmail, thievery, and revenge that’s been souring their seaside hometown for years?
