Jenna Wentworth, UW-Madison freshman must move to California and lose a year of school or get a job and pay her own board,
room, and tuition.
Stressed by her mother's threat, Jenna has to weigh the consequences of striking out on
her own as an au pair and pretend to be married to pay for school expenses, or returning to the familiarity of her mother's
money and domination. To complicate matters, two cool guys vie for Jenna's affection.
CANDY, MURDER, AND ME is an 80,000-word cozy mystery set in Florida, in and around a dress design company, which co-stars
Sigmund Freud, a psychoanalyst dachshund.
When full-figure dress designer and candy addict Cookie Berelli discovers
the PI she hired to clear her of embezzlement charges dead in her design studio, she investigates, to wacky results. For example,
is Eugene Gemstone involved? After all, he is her number one fabric cutter at Florida Fashions, and he did start acting overemotional
after he wore one of the dresses she designed into the ladies’ room at Chez Riso and got arrested. He's especially
suspect now that he's disappeared with all of Cookie's candy stash. Then again, it could be that cute PI, Andy Shea,
who shows up at the funeral of her dead PI, and makes her hear the love song from GONE WITH THE WIND in her head, or it could
be just about anyone else on the planet.
Everyone's starting to look suspicious now, especially Yuri Yarutski,
who owns a sports bar in the bad part of town and wants to go a few rounds with Cookie, the woman who lives in a tree (who
in Florida can live without air conditioning?), and even Bernadette Humphreys of Bernie's Tattoos who comes up with the
weirdest body art. Okay, yes, Cookie did find the body, in fact two of them,and so she has to clear herself, but does that
mean the murderer has to go after her?
Recipes from her Norwegian and Italian heritage including Grandma Berelli’s
Pralines (“Worth going to jail for”), Cookie’s Maple Candies (“So good they’re criminal”),
Nana’s Kringlas (“To kill for”), Cookie's Chocolate Cover-Up Fudge ("Perfect for spying activities"),
and Blood Red Spaghetti Sauce with Bad Boy Meatballs, among others, are available throughout the story to break up the mayhem.
