My favorite character was Nigel, the huge
black and white Main Coon cat. He
belongs to Tally Holt.
Tally lives in Fredericksburg, Texas. She
runs Tally’s Olde Tyme Sweets. It is a
vintage candy shop.
Tally makes her own Mallomars, Clark Bars,
Whoopie Pies, Bailey Baileys Truffle Fudge,
Mary Janes and Twinkies.
Tally is in the process of interviewing three
ladies to work for her. Tally decides to have
them help prepare and work the reception
for her parents to judge their skills.
Her parents are performers who have been
traveling the world. They will be coming to
Fredericksburg for a visit.
Tally has recruited her best friend, Yolanda
Bella of Bella’s Basket and Kevin Miller,
proprietor of Bear Mountain Vineyards to
provide food and drink for the reception.
Everything seems to be running smoothly
until Tally’s mother falls ill. Then Fran, the
director of the local theater becomes ill.
Both are rushed to the hospital.
Tally’s mother is diagnosed with dengue
fever from a mosquito bite when they were
Fran dies....the circumstances are suspicious.
This story combines family issues with a
murder plot that kept my attention from the
beginning to the final word.
Murder, old secrets, fire, Yolanda’s sister,
Yolanda’s love life, family issues abound
throughout the story.
I enjoyed meeting all the characters. They
were well described, colorful, some quirky
and some not so nice. A variety of small town
people coming together.
I was put off when the main character, Tally
had crying spells and would drum her fingers.
At least Nigel helped smooth her down.
This is book # 2 in the Vintage Sweet Mysteries
series. It can be read as a stand alone. The
author provided enough of the past with the
present so the reader could follow along
I volunteered to read Deadly Sweet Tooth.

Strange ending to Deadly Sweet ToothReviewed in the United States on 9 June 2020
I gave this story 3 stars because of the weird, bizarre ending which was very abrupt from Tally being in peril and then she was at a party without any explanation as to how she ended up there. Did the author fall asleep during the last 2 chapters and just give on trying to finish the story line? Not sure I want to continue with this series, so disappointing.

Abrupt endingReviewed in the United States on 29 March 2021
I have enjoyed all of Kaye George's cozy mysteries. And I was pretty much into this one, though I kept thinking Tally was a little slow at putting the pieces together into identifying the bad guy. But when chapter 31 ended when Tally, under threat of death, got up and ran off, and then is at a party on the next page, I literally found myself scratching my head, wondering if the publisher left out a chapter.
