Following her dream of selling her cupcakes at a bakery gets put on hold while she follows a trail of clues, each one even more weird than the last. Almost every person in Sweetwater Falls has got a grudge against Amos, who was known more for pinching pennies than for his benevolence.

Everybody’s mourning looks a lot more like griping over just how much the cheapskate owes the people that he swindled still. Only Marianne and Charlotte know about the tender heart that Amos was hiding underneath his prickly exterior. Once it becomes clear that Amos’s murder may go uninvestigated, Charlotte sets out to expose his murderer once and for all.

However everywhere she turns, there’s some new suspect, and another lie that she has to sift through in order to get to the truth.

Sweetwater Falls has got a bounty of wonderful, wholesome people, however the more that Charlotte digs deeper to get the truth, the more that she finds secrets which are better left in the dark.

    I’ve keep checking to see if the last 3 books will be out in paperwork. I was really hoping they would. I love this series. Please let me know if they will be released in paperwork. Thank you

      There is a good chance that they will but may be a bit later as paperbacks often are released a bit later on in a books life cycle.
