Welcome to the Historic McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop??where life is sweet, revenge is sweeter, and murder is here to to stay. . .
You Can't Fudge An Alibi
Allie McMurphy is up to her neck in renovations at the grand old hotel that's been in her family for generations. With its quaint Victorian charm??and world-famous fudge shop??the place is one of Mackinac Island's most beloved landmarks.
Sure, every family has a skeleton or two in the closet. But Allie didn't expect to find an actual corpse inside hers, especially one Joe Jessup, who had a long-running feud with her dear departed grandfather. Which makes Allie the number-one suspect.
Can she sniff out the culprit before another victim checks in?
"A sweet treat with memorable characters, a charming locale, and satisfying mystery."
??Barbara Allan, author of the Trash 'n' Treasure

Enjoyable mystery about a young woman inheriting her grandfather’s hotel and fudge business . She goes on to renovating the vintage hotel and creating new fudge recipes while trying to convince the island residents that she’s not responsible for the murder that occurred in her hotel . With the help of her friends and the attractive detective the mystery is solved . The book also contains some very delicious fudge recipes that I will be making for holiday gifts . ( )

A friend that enjoys cozy mysteries passed on the first book (and the fourth and fifth, for some reason) in this series to me since she knows my love for Mackinac Island. That being said, the Mackinac in this book is an imagined one and bears little resemblance to the Island I know and love. One of the author's choices really confuses me: some of the locations she names are real names such as the Island House Hotel or JL Beanery (a coffee shop that has since closed from the time this book was initially published.) Other names are completely fictional: the Sailor's Bar and Grill (instead of the Pink Pony?); Hay's Fudge Shop (instead of May's, I presume); the Nag's Head Pub (perhaps instead of the Mustang Lounge.) I understand that there may have been issues using the names of real businesses, but it's a little unsettling when trying to imagine the setting (at least for people who know Mackinac Island well.) Long story short, I wasn't able to suspend my sense of disbelief enough to enjoy the book's location, particularly when the main character never walks out of the downtown area. The natural parts of Mackinac are the best part! (Obviously that's opinion-based.)

Issues with the setting aside, the "heroine" comes off as entitled and irritating at times. Small towns, particularly island communities that have thousands of tourists every year, are not automatically obligated to welcome you with open arms. And yet, Allie doesn't seem to understand that acceptance takes time, even if you spent months of your life in that community growing up. I also got distracted by Allie's attraction to various men- even though Rex and Trent seem to be the other sides of a love triangle, every time she met a new male character, we were given a description of their eyes and hair color... Unless the EMT or electric company manager is integral to the story, I can't see why so much time is spent describing them- or perhaps the author needed to include the information more fluidly. (Think: "he peered at the paper, a puzzled look in his emerald irises" as opposed to "he looked at the paper with his green eyes, completely confused." Okay, that's a little over the top, but the idea is there.)

Will I read any other books in this series? Yes, because they were passed into me by a friend. I hope there are some improvements. But the mystery itself was decent, and Mal the puppy was adorable, so at least there's that to look forward to. ( )

Allie McMurphy has always wanted to take over the McMurphy her grandfather’s hotel and fudge shop on Mackinac Island in Michigan; she's got a degree in hotel restaurant management and a newly earned culinary degree, too. Her grandfather (Papa Liam) died before he could show her the ropes. Now she finds herself alone with a hotel that needs a lot of renovations that's been in the family for one hundred twenty years. She's surprised that shortly after moving in she finds Liam’s oldest rival, Joe Jessup, dead in the utility closet. The next day, everyone is asking Allie all kinds of questions, assuming that she killed Joe, and spreading rumors that the hotel is up for sale. The islands residents have taken sides, Jessops vs. McMurphys, with the Jessops in the lead because Allie is an outsider.

Frances, the front desk manager, sticks by Allie’s side, she even gives Allie a puppy named Marshmallow (Mal for short). The other employee, Colin Ferber, who acts as a handyman, is MIA, so Allie hires retired teacher/library volunteer Mr. Devaney as the new handyman. Her friend Jess, also moves into the hotel to help for the upcoming season. Hopefully, they'll be able to figure out what happened to Joe, clear the McMurphy name, and continue the renovations before the season starts and all the reservations cancel. Things get more complicated when a suspicious stain is discovered beneath the lobby carpet. A secret tunnel is found in the basement that leads to bottles of old wine, the hotel books don't add up, there's another murder, and it looks like Liam may have died of natural causes.

The characters are well developed, and the way they interact with each other make them very lifelike. The author is very descriptive and it makes you feel like you're on the island watching the scenes play out in front of you. The mystery is well plotted and there are lots of twists and turns to make the reader keep guessing about who the real killer is. ( )
