Review - Chocolate Covered Murder


CHOCOLATE COVERED MURDER

Leslie Meier

Hardback

ISBN: 978-0-7582-2933-5

Lucy Stone Mystery Series



Tinker's Cove, Maine is having it's annual Valentines Celebration. This year Lucy and her husband Bill are invited but the trick is that Lucy needs to lose a few pounds. Add to this the fact that for the big night she has to get Bill into a tux.

Lucy is not very happy at work since Ted keeps assigning her puff pieces.

The winter blues have nothing on Lucy especially when both of her daughters go to work at the two rival chocolate shops in Tinker's Cove.

Long story short it's a set up for murder and murder is exactly what happens. First the fudge shop loses a contest that they have long time won. Then Dora's exhusband Max is found dead. Lucy doesn't think he it was an accident that he fell through the ice and drowned.

To put the cherry on top of the dark chocolate Tazmin the manager of the new chocolate chop is found dead and her naked body on display covered very nicely in chocolate. Now Lucy has more news but then ultimate surprise comes when her friend Corney calls her says she is handcuffed to her bed and will lucy come unlock her.

CHOCOLATE COVERED MURDER is dipped in fun and just the right amount of murder and mayhem. Needless to say I had a very good time reading this mystery. I also admit to having a little chocolate while reading it.
