Samantha Sweet is about to realize her dream of opening her pastry shop, Sweet’s Sweets, in picturesque Taos, New Mexico. Juggling the crazy amount of work to get her new business off the ground, with her old job of breaking into houses, she’s got her hands full. When a blood-soaked garment is found among the discards at one of her properties, and a friend makes a shocking confession, Sam finds herself pulled into a pair of mysteries.
The wooden box that came into her possession (in Sweet Masterpiece) is still working its magic, giving Sam the power to see inside people’s secrets and figure out who the killer is. There’s a little romance, a little magic and a whole lot of chocolate in this delightful cozy mystery series from USA Today bestselling author Connie Shelton.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I find that while reading Connie Shelton’s books you quickly become friends with her characters. You will love Samantha Sweet and her wide-eyed approach to her complicated life as she struggles to open a business, solve major crimes, and establishes a relationship with the new love in her life. I’ve been to Taos, and these books bring the town to life. These novels are a quick read and leave you with a warm feeling.
Great descriptive writing, good story-line and a relaxing read. Just enough “witchcraft” to keep you wondering if it is real or imagination. Nothing outlandish.
This is a great book for anyone loving a good mystery/love story combination. A little magic was weaved into this one and we all need a little light-hearted magic. The book was captivating and kept me reading. I love this author and will be reading more of her books s they become available.
One of the best series I have read in a long time…easy to get into and a book I had a hard time putting down. There is enough suspense to keep you turning the pages, a wonderful story of friendship, and adventure. No boredom.
I’ve read the entire series to date (I hope there will be more) and I’ve appreciated the excellent writing and the inclusion of a little magical mystery. This story brings the bakery to life and includes some new characters. As with the first book, the ending is not obvious. but thoroughly satisfying. Thumbs up!

About The Author
Having fun with my writing, and connecting with readers–that’s what being a mystery writer means to me. And I LOVE what I do!
It began in 1985 when I started writing my first novel, without much clue how to go about it. Two years and 500 pages later, when I finally typed ‘The End,’ I felt a huge rush of excitement. That book took third place in the Southwest Writers competition and began making the rounds of publishers. I simply started writing my second, and then my third books.
After publishing ten of my Charlie Parker mysteries, I decided to branch out with a new cozy mystery series and I created the character of Samantha Sweet. One of the ways in which I earned a little extra pocket money during my high school years was to bake and decorate cakes–hence, a career for Samantha based on my own experiences.
In 2009 I switched publishers and was off on a new adventure, seeing all of my books made available for Kindle as e-books were just beginning to take off in the book world. It’s been an exciting time in publishing–high points for me were reaching #1 on Amazon a few times and the Top 50 on the USA Today bestseller list. I’m loving the way e-books allow me to personally connect with readers all over the world via my newsletter and my website at connieshelton.com.
Besides writing the Charlie Parker and Samantha Sweet mysteries, Connie is an award-winning essayist. Her work has been published in both small and major anthologies, including Chicken Soup For the Writer’s Soul, and her short stories have won several prizes. She has also been a commercial hot air balloon pilot and holds the women’s world altitude record for size AX-4 balloons. She has been featured in Who’s Who and The World Who’s Who of Women.
She and her husband live in northern New Mexico with their two dogs, Daisy and Missy, who became stars of their own series of children’s books.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Connie Shelton and ENT appreciate it.
