This was my first introduction to a "cozie". I found it very enjoyable. The characters were fun. I was worried it would be lacking in mystery, but I was still guessing as to "whodunnit" till the last chapter. The chocolate confections were so descriptive you may be craving a box of chocolates before the book is through!

This series is an enjoyable series of short, light cozies involving the niece of a chocolate shop owner in a lake resort town in Michigan. The stories are not deep, not challenging, not really funny, but are pleasant, mildly interesting, and fun as long as you're not looking for great literature.

I bought this book because it has the cutest cover ever. It turned out to be a decent mystery about a woman who works in a luxury chocolate shop. Don't know that I would buy another by this author, but made a great airport read.

This is a fun sries, not too serious, not too frivolous. Easy reading, plot goes along
pleasantly. it won't scare you, and it won't make you laugh out loud, but they are satisfying nonetheless. I have read all but the last two, and am still looking forward to getting those.

2nd in this series. Lee McKinney is experiencing her first Michigan winter since she moved north to help her Aunt Nettie in her chocolate shop. Lee's ex-stepson shows up, finds a body, gets thrown in jail and won't say why he's in Michigan and not in school in Texas. Handsome Joe Woodyard is on the scene again. Lots of chocolate descriptions along with teddy bears galore. Recommended.

I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the chocolate cat book, but it was still a fun read. The plot tended to meander a bit in the middle but overall it was enjoyable. These books are perfect for a slow afternoon as they don't require much time or effort to get through.

A nice cosy with just enough suspense to keep you reading. The jacket blurb reads "After leaving her bad-news husband back in Texas, Lee McKinney moved up north to a quaint resort town. Now she keeps the books for her aunt's luxury chocolate shop. But Lee soon finds that Michigan winters can be murder ..."
