I enjoyed reading A Case for the Candle Maker by Candace Havens book four in her Ainsley McGregor mystery series. Ainsley McGregor, a former, and now part-time, English professor, followed her dream and opened an artisan market in Sweet River, Texas. The market, “Bless Your Art”, would be a central location for local artists to sell their merchandise and teach classes, as well as hopefully bring tourists to the town.

Ainsley is more than busy between her shop, Bless Your Art, Sweet River’s Vale

I received this arc from Tule Publishing in exchange for an honest review. I really am enjoying this mystery series by Candace Havens featuring Ainsley McGregor. This is the fourth in the series. A woman arrives at Bless This Art to see about selling her candles in the shop. At first Ainsley is hesitant to allow it but the scents are so enticing that she agrees. They are so popular that customers are buying them faster than the candle maker can display them. Ainsley and her best friend Shannon i ...more

A Case for the Candle Maker is book four in the Ainsley McGregor cozy mystery series by Candace Havens. The Valentine's Day celebration is about to take place in Sweet River, plus Ainsley's helping Shannon prepare for her upcoming wedding, so to say Ainsley is a busy woman doesn't really do her justice. During a busy rush in Bless Your Art, Ainsley almost turns away a candle maker until her nose gets the scent of something divine. She, Jasmine, and Shannon become fast friends that day, but thing ...more

This has been a nice continuation of the Ainsley McGregor mysteries and a story that kept me wondering who the killer was and what their motive might be. With vast amounts of money and power in the mix there were certainly plenty of potential suspects.
I like the small town setting, which adds a personal spin to the story. There always seem to be plenty of characters willing to step in and help Ainsley work things out. She gets involved not because she’s either a police office or an investigator,

Just in time for Valentines comes book four of the delightful Ainsley McGregor Series by Candace Havens. A Case for the Candle Maker has Ainsley preparing a Sweet River Celebration and also a friend’s wedding. Wouldn’t you know it a strange death is discovered. Who knew arts and crafts could be so dangerous? In this case it is an entire family involved too.

With George Clooney, her Great Dane by her side, Ainsley slips from her entrepreneur role into amateur sleuth role without missing a beat. E

A Case for the Candle Maker by Candace Havens book four in her Ainsley McGregor is my favorite so far in her series. Yes, this is a series and no you do not have to read them all to enjoy them. But boy is this series based in Sweet River, Texas around a group of friends who live there and a craft marketplace called "Bless Your Art". Ainsley is the owner of the marketplace but rents out space to others and that is a big part of this book. Jasmine Levy brings in her handmade candles and asks to se ...more

This is book 4 in the Ainsley McGregor series and it's a good cozy. You can read this book without reading the previous books but they are all good stories. Ainsley's shop, Bless Your Art is preparing for Valentine's Day and when a stranger stops by with candles for sale, Ainsley can't keep them on the shelf they are so popular. Jasmine becomes friends with Ainsley and needs her help when her sister is found dead. I enjoy this series. The characters are all down to earth and believable and the p ...more
