    Having read this series from Book 1, this one will leave readers wondering if this is the end. Like Meadow's Sweet Peach Bakery last book in the series, this one has less levity but is more action packed and danger filled. Usually Margaret's investigating finds her facing death but this time she finds those that she loves around her facing it as well leading her to reassess her life. Will this be the end of one or all of them forever?

    There is always something going on in the small town. Margaret Nichols is busy planning another promotion, partnering with a new ice cream shop around milkshakes. When Margaret and her friend, Stacy Koontz, visit the town’s 95-year-old resident, Florence Smith, they find she’s been murdered, her head bashed in and blood everywhere. Margaret’s boyfriend, Detective David Graham asks Margaret to help him as they have done in the past. But when people she cares deeply about are put in real danger an There is always something going on in the small town.

When Margaret and her friend, Stacy Koontz, visit the town’s 95-year-old resident, Florence Smith, they find she’s been murdered, her head bashed in and blood everywhere. Margaret’s boyfriend, Detective David Graham asks Margaret to help him as they have done in the past. But when people she cares deeply about are put in real danger and injured, maybe this has gone too far? Can those close this case quickly? Will this be the last one she agrees to help on? This book had a different feeling that we normally find in these stories. It took on a serious note when Margaret realized how close she came to losing people important in her life – even her son Zac! This is a particularly vicious criminal, apparently, who has no limits. Grab your copy and see whether Margaret will be frightened off or determined to end the murders once and for all!

Is this a new thing with Amazon? If it is, I'm not done contacting other Amazon department. Right now I have a call into Customer Services to address this. I don't usually bother writing reviews because I have trouble seeing so reading is difficult at my age but my brain is working fine.

    by Barbara Kelley Sweets Assessment is book #9 in the Sweet Shop Mystery series by Wendy Meadows. This series follows Margaret Nichols, owner of the town's candy shop and amateur private investigator; her 20-year-old son, Zack, and every mother's dream child; and Detective David Graham, Margaret's gentleman friend (in their 40s, you really can't call them girlfriend and boyfriend). This book also includes Ariel, David's 15-year-old daughter, of whom he only recently discovered; and Gilly, Zack's by Barbara Kelley Sweets Assessment is book #9 in the Sweet Shop Mystery series by Wendy Meadows. This series follows Margaret Nichols, owner of the town's candy shop and amateur private investigator; her 20-year-old son, Zack, and every mother's dream child; and Detective David Graham, Margaret's gentleman friend (in their 40s, you really can't call them girlfriend and boyfriend). This book also includes Ariel, David's 15-year-old daughter, of whom he only recently discovered; and Gilly, Zack's beautiful Oriental-American girlfriend. Not only is Margaret a candy shop owner, but she is also a private investigator with a website and everything. So, she and Detective Graham work on murder cases together. She has a keen eye for detail, and in previous books has almost been killed herself. This episode is about a 98 year old woman, who was as energetic as a 20-year-old, who is murdered. Margaret snoops around a lot, like any other sleuth. Margaret Nichols reminds me of James Rockford in "The Rockford Files" series of the 1970s. Every time you turn around she's getting hit over the head, just like Rockford. This time, her son, Zack, takes her to the hospital for a CT scan to make sure she doesn't have a concussion, which she doesn't. She must have a really hard head. Later in the story, Zack, Gilly, and David wind up in the hospital and three visitors come to see them: Stacy and Simone are two other business women friends of Margaret's, and Margaret's residential neighbor, Kyle. Stacy owns the little café next door to where Margaret's candy shop is located. Kyle lives across the street from Margaret's house and is a military veteran in his 30s. I'm mentioning this about Kyle because he just pops into the hospital section without any mention of when he came to be there. If this is the first book you read in the series, you wouldn't know who Kyle is. I like the way the author uses the first person narrative in this series. Some of these books were previously written in third person narrative, but I like it much better now. Of course, there is the proverbial murder of the old lady, and Margaret solves it, nearly getting herself killed again in the process. I gave this book 5 stars.

As she gets acquainted with its owners, she is drawn into an investigation of a brutal murder which will endanger her and her loved ones.

    Milkshakes in cold weather? Isn’t that like hot chocolate in the summer??? What’s the point of living to a healthy old age if you are doing things that make you miserable? My husband’s mother lived to a few weeks short of 100 and her last few years were horrid both for her and for us. So, the last pigeon come home to roost and I will happily write my review. I enjoyed the story- although I did get a bit of a headache – and do recommend the book.
