In the small town of Abbott Creek, mystery is as much a part of daily life as The Sweet Shop's sugar cookies. With the upheaval of spring comes a whole new batch of arguments and upsets. Amelia Simpkins may be a great cook, and have a head for business, but sweet treats are out of her league and the owner of the Irish Blessings Cafe says it's because she adds the tart to the Sweet Shop's new dessert that Katie Chupp insists is only filled with lemony goodness.

 The two shop owners' constant bickering sends sparks flying through Abbott Creek's usual calm... and this is one mystery Katie wants no part of, but working for Mrs. Simpkins may put her in the middle - whether she intends to take sides . . . or not.

 And, when the Yoder and Davis families collide on some rather sensitive issues, bringing things to light that two certain young people would rather keep hidden away, Travis may have to face up to the truth about his feelings for a certain young woman--and all that goes along with those feelings. 

Book 3 of the Sweet Shop Mysteries series And watch for book 4 - Pumpkin Pie Mystery - COMING SOON!

My thoughts:  LEMON TART MYSTERY is the third book in Ms. Miller's Sweet Shop Mysteries series, and fans will want to read the first two, Blueberry Cupcake Mystery and Christmas Cookie Mystery. These books are light on the mystery (for those who don't like their reading material sprinkled with dead bodies) and heavy on the sweetness and the  humor.  This book has a few lemony recipes included and one orange one, so if you like citrus-flavored treats, this is your book. 

I enjoyed reading this book, and spending more time with Katie and her friends and watch as the community continues to reach out to the Davis family.  If you like Amish stories, this book is a sweet escape no matter what age you are. I'm looking forward to reading the next book--coming soon. 

I was given a copy of this book free. All opinions are my own.
