Bailey King is living the sweet life as assistant chocolatier at world-famous JP Chocolates in New York City. But just when Baileyâ€™s up for a life-changing promotion, her grandmother calls with news that her grandfatherâ€™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 canâ€™t be said for a localÂ Englischdeveloper, whom Bailey finds dead in the candy shop kitchenâ€”with Jebediah Kingâ€™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 . . .
