It’s Mother’s Day, a busy time at Swissmen Sweets Amish candy shop. Margot, the town’s self-appointed PR woman, has yet another event planned: a Mother’s Day tea at the local church as a fund raiser for Abigail’s Farm. The farm is a transitional place for former drug users as they leave rehab but are not quite ready to go home. The tea is a sold out success.

The main worry for Bailey King, chocolatier, is that her mother and father are coming for a visit. Except for a funeral, they’ve not visited the small town in thirty years. Her father was raised Amish but was never baptized and lives the life of an Englisher (non-Amish). Bailey’s mother is sure Bailey made a horrible mistake when she quit her job in New York. Now that Bailey has her own cable television show, maybe her mother will see it was a good decision.

Aiden is a police detective and Bailey’s boyfriend. His mother, Juliet, is sure the pair will get married. Juliet’s emotional support animal, Jethro, is a polka-dotted pot bellied pig. Introducing Aiden, Juliet, and Jethro to her parents isn’t something Bailey is looking forward to.

When the money from the fundraiser goes missing, Bailey lends a hand in finding the culprit. The Amish don’t like dealing with the police but are more willing to talk to Bailey because of her Amish roots.

This is a novella length tale, nine chapters only but rest assured, as a favorite character, Jethro gets plenty of time on the page. There’s an excerpt from Marshmallow Malice, reviewed here, the next full length book. As a bonus, look for Bailey’s recipe for butterscotch peanut bars, too.

Amanda Flower also writes the Amish Matchmaking mysteries, Magical Bookshop series, the Piper and Porter books, and the Magical Garden mysteries, most reviewed here.
