Bailey King is living the sweet life as assistant chocolatier at world-famous JP Chocolates in New York City. But just when Bailey's up for a life-changing promotion, her grandmother calls with news that her grandfather's heart condition has worsened. Bailey rushes to Harvest, Ohio, where her grandparents still run Swissmen Sweets, the Amish candy shop where she was first introduced to delicious fudge, truffles, and other assorted delights.

She finds her grandfather is doing better than she feared. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for a local Englisch developer, whom Bailey finds dead in the candy shop kitchen-with Jebediah King's chocolate knife buried in his chest. Now the police are sweet on her grandfather as the prime suspect. Despite the sincere efforts of a yummy deputy with chocolate-brown eyes, Bailey takes it on herself to clear Jebediah. But as a cunning killer tries to fudge the truth, Bailey may be headed straight into a whole batch of trouble . . .

This is an utterly charming story that manages to be sweet and cozy without ever getting treacly. I often find myself avoiding cozy mysteries because I love them, but it's hard to find really well-written ones that don't get overly arch or saccharine. This is a perfect example of the type. Fowler writes with a light hand while delivering everything you want in terms of cuteness, sweetness and utter charm. All the ingredients to make a lover of cozy mysteries happy are here: A likeable heroine, her wisecracking best friend, a charming small town, a tall, dark and handsome detective, chocolates, a polka-dot pig and a cute kitty. There's no violence (the murder happens "offscreen"), no gratuitous anything, just a wonderful, well-told story that is the perfect antidote to a dark day.
