This book although being a short story gives a good background of the main character, Bailey King. Mother's Day and missing money that was raised for women in need are the stories. ( )
  xKayx | Dec 14, 2020 |
It’s Mother’s Day weekend and Bailey King has a busy few days ahead of her. Bailey’s parents are visiting from New England. Her father, Silas, left the Amish community of Harvest and Holmes County when he was a young man and the only time he’s ever returned was for the funeral of his father, Bailey’s grandfather, Jerimiah King. Bailey’s mother, Susan, is also a Holmes County native and she has stayed away from her birthplace as well. But this weekend, they have left New England to spend time with Bailey.
Soon after their arrival, Bailey’s parents meet Juliet Brody (and Jethro the pig) and Juliet wastes no time bringing up a marriage between Aiden Brody, Juliet’s son and Bailey’s boyfriend, and Bailey. Silas and Susan aren’t opposed to the idea, but Bailey and Aiden aren’t even engaged and Bailey will be pressed for time trying to keep her parents separated from Juliet and her wedding-to-be plans.
Out of town visitors aren’t the only things taking up Bailey’s time. Margot Rawlins has planned a Mother’s Day tea as a fundraiser for Abigail’s Farm, a place for women battling drug addiction to get a start on a new life. Swissmen’s Sweets, the candy shop started by Bailey’s Amish late grandfather and now co-owned by Bailey and her Amish grandmother Clara King, have donated several types of sweet treats for the event.
On her way into the church to set up for the tea, Bailey’s wagonful of desserts is nearly knocked over by a large man and Bailey is too busy trying to keep her wagon upright to identify him. While Bailey is setting up for the event in the church, she hears an argument between Polly Anne Lind, the owner of Abigail’s Farm, and someone Bailey hears but can’t see. During the tea, Bailey also spots an Amish woman she doesn’t know. Before Bailey can get her grandmother to identify the mystery woman, she’s gone, as is the ten thousand dollars raised at the tea.
The list of suspects for the theft is fairly long and grows longer when Bailey discovers disgruntled neighbors of Abigail’s Farm. These neighbors are unhappy with the fact that these women live next door and would like nothing better than to see them gone. Without the money, Abigail’s Farm will be forced to close. But without any evidence and fearing the cash donations may already be spent, will Bailey be able to find the thief and save the farm? ( )

This was a nice quick read in this series that I love. Instead of a murder mystery, we have a theft of a fundraiser and the mystery is solved in a day. In this novella, we finally meet Bailey's parents and Aiden seems to beginning accept his mother's pushing Bailey and him toward marriage. ( )

“Botched Butterscotch” continues the cozy mystery series about Bailey and her candy-making adventures in Amish country. Leaving her career as a chocolatier in New York, Bailey has joined her Amish grandmother in managing the Swissmen Sweets candy store. In this latest installment, a monetary theft occurs during a Mother’s Day tea which Bailey and her grandmother help to cater. The theft jeopardizes the existence of a local drug treatment farm for women. Bailey teams up with local law enforcement to help solve the crime.

This cozy novella presents a mystery that is quickly solved in a satisfactory manner. It is a light, clean read with no profanity, graphic violence, or adult situations. Readers do not need previous experience with the characters and setting to enjoy this novel. It can be read as a stand-alone, but readers of the series will feel welcomed by the quirky characters and home-like setting with which they are familiar.

I received this book from the publisher and from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own. ( )

Botched Butterscotch by Amanda Flower has Bailey King expecting her parents for Mother’s Day weekend. Bailey has been busy preparing treats for the Mother’s Day Tea at the church that is supporting Abigail’s Farm, a place for women to recover from addiction. While everyone is enjoying the tea and butterscotch bars, a sticky-fingered thief makes off with the contents of the donation box (over $10,000). Detective Little is going solo and Bailey promises to help him nab the crook and recover the cash. Botched Butterscotch is An Amish Candy Shop Mystery Novella (No. 4.5). It can be read on its own (but why would you want to miss any of the books in this entertaining cozy mystery series). I sat down and quickly devoured this humorous story. I love the cast of characters that Amanda Flower has created for this series from Bailey King to Jethro, the polka-dotted pig. The descriptions of the sweet treats from Swissmen’s Sweets will have you craving something yummy (recipe at the end of book). There are delightful laugh-out-loud moments especially with Juliet Brody and her pet pig, Jethro. Juliet is determined her son, Aidan will wed Bailey very soon (they are dating, but no imminent proposal). The setting of Harvest, Ohio is bucolic. I like that it is a combination Amish and English area. The mystery suits the story and I enjoyed following Bailey as she solved the crime while giving Deputy Little credit. Botched Butterscotch is an amusing tale that will tide me over until Marshmallow Malice comes out. Botched Butterscotch is a delightful cozy mystery with precocious pigs, batches of butterscotch bars, a matchmaking mama, purloined philanthropy, and Mother’s Day mayhem. ( )
