When her Aunt Grace passed away, Abby Shaw inherited Divinity—and with it the opportunity to leave her career as a corporate lawyer and dump her cheating husband. Now she spends her time serving up delectable treats—and performing the occasional deductive feat… Making and selling sweets eases Abby’s heartache, but having Brandon Mills sweet on her eases it even more. The owner of a men’s clothing store, he invites Abby to the local merchants’ meeting where he’ll plead his case to extend the city’s annual arts festival.

His store is destroyed by fire and his body discovered in the rubble—and Abby is shocked to find that few people in town mourn his death. Paradise’s business owners were threatened by Brandon’s ambitious nature—and several men felt threatened by the attention he showered on their wives. And when her brother becomes the number one suspect, Abby holds her own investigation to find out who really killed Brandon—for love or money… Includes Candy Recipes
