All I Want For Christmas Is Fudge


This is a Fun Short Holiday e-book told from Allie's best friend Jenn Christenson's point of view. 



“A fun book with a lively plot, and it’s in one of America’s most interesting resorts. All this plus fudge!”
~ JoAnna Carl, Bestselling author of the Chocoholic Mystery Series.

"A sweet confection of a book.”

“Charming setting, clever protagonist, and creamy fudge—a yummy recipe for a great read.”

Joanna Campbell Slan, author of The Jane Eyre Chronicles


Move over, Janet Evanovich – there’s a new kid on the block.  Nancy Coco (Parra)’s latest, All Fudged Up, is a delightful mystery delivering suspense and surprise in equal measure.  Her heroine, Alice McMurphy, owner of the “Historic McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop” (as much of a mouthful as her delicious fudge), has a wry narrative voice that never falters.  Add that to the charm of the setting, Michigan’s famed Mackinac Island, and you have a recipe for enjoyment.  (As an added bonus, mouth-watering fudge recipes are included.)  A must-read for all lovers of amateur sleuth classic mysteries.- Carole Bugge, author of Who Killed Blanche Dubois and other Claire Rawlings mysteries
