Very good cozy mystery about the Ten Huis Chocolade shop with Lee McKinney and her Aunt Nettie. Julie Singletree is so sweet and wants to be everyone's friend, sending email to all. Then, suddenly she is murdered and her computer is missing! Along with humor and suspense, the author JoAnna Carl keeps you guessing until the very end! Plus the extra facts about chocolate add mouth-watering ideas!
This one is the best chocoholic mystery yet. Carl has gotten into the groove of depicting these characters, the choppiness in the writing that was evident in the earlier ones is gone completely and the storyline flowed smoothly. I still find Lee's malapropisms annoying rather than endearing, but there were far fewer of them in this book than in previous ones. The plot was a bit transparent in some ways. I knew who the killer was very early one, just wasn't entirely sure why. Out of the 5 chocoholic mysteries this one had the most flair and polish. A quick, easy read that leaves you hungering for chocolate!
Chocolate shop manager Lee McKinney is so tired of "inspirational" e-mails from party planner Julie Singletree that she's ready to strangle her with the cord of her own computer mouse. But she's shocked when somebody actually kills the woman - and steals her computer. After all, the e-mail list Julie set up was for professionals in the party food business - people more interested in hor d'oeuvres than in homicides.
I think this series gets better with each book.
I really enjoyed this book, the characters are great and the plot makes this a real page turner.
