Read How Honeymoons Can Be Hazardous In The Latest Installment of the Amish Matchmaker Mysteries

No one loves blueberries as much as Millie Fisher, the widowed Amish matchmaker turned sleuth from the Amish Matchmaker Mysteries by Amanda Flower. She could eat blueberries for every meal, and it is well known in the Amish town of Harvest that a day is not complete for Millie until she gets a piece of blueberry pie from the Sunbeam Café, where her best friend Lois Henry works. She’s thrilled that Bailey King developed a Blueberry-and-Cream Fudge recipe for Swissmen Sweets, the local candy shop in Harvest. Readers can snack on their own fudge while diving into the latest installment of the Amish Matchmaker Mysteries, Honeymoons Can Be Hazardous

Bailey’s Blueberry-and-Cream Fudge
Makes 36 (1½-inch) pieces
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages white chocolate chips
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  1. Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, allowing excess parchment paper to hang over sides of pan.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Cook, stirring continuously and mashing blueberries, until mixture becomes a thick sauce, similar to a purée. Using the back of a spoon, press sauce through a fine-mesh sieve into a heatproof bowl. Set aside.
  3. In the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, stir together white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and butter. Stir continuously to blend and until chocolate melts. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour a third of chocolate mixture into prepared baking pan. Pour a third of blueberry sauce over chocolate layer. Using a knife, swirl chocolate and blueberry layers together. Repeat layers with remaining chocolate mixture and remaining blueberry sauce two more times, swirling blueberry layer each time.
  5. Refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours.
  6. To serve, using excess parchment paper as handles, lift fudge from pan and onto a cutting surface. Cut into 36 (1½-inch) pieces. Store in a single layer in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy within a week.

About the Book

Widowed matchmaker Millie Fisher is anything but lonely between her mischievous goats, her quilting circle, and her habit of solving the odd murder or two.

Millie’s decidedly non-Amish best friend, Lois Henry, is outspoken, colorful, and so hopelessly romantic—she’s had four husbands. Millie doesn’t judge, and she also doesn’t expect to run into Lois’s most recent ex, gambler Gerome Moorhead, in small-town Harvest, Ohio. With him is the very young and new Mrs. Moorhead, aka “Honey Bee.” Lois is outraged, but Millie is completely shocked to learn the next day that Gerome is already a widower.

When a large wood carving at the cozy Munich Chalet falls on Honey Bee, all eyes turn toward Lois. Who else would want a tourist—a complete stranger—dead? After all, half of Harvest witnessed Lois’s enmity toward the young woman. Suddenly, Millie must put aside her sewing needle and flex her sleuthing skills. She’s no stranger to a murder investigation, and if she doesn’t learn who killed Honey Bee, Lois could go from Millie’s boisterous best friend to her horrified prison penpal.
