"Crime de Cocoa" contains the first three Chocoholic Mysteries as well as a bonus short story. The short story "The Chocolate Kidnapping Clue" is set about ten years before the first Chocoholic mystery, "The Chocoate Cat Caper". The short story is set during a summer when series heroine Lee McKinney is working in her aunt and undle's chocolate shop in Warner Pier, Michigan.

These are great, light mysteries. But if you've already read the first three novels ("The Chocolate Cat Caper", "The Chocolate Bear Burglary", and "The Chocolate Frog Frame-Up") all that is new here is the short story.

The first 3 Chocoholic mysteries plus a short story of our heroine as a teen, solving her first mystery. I enjoyed the stories and the characters. As happens in cozies, the main character is too stupid to live, when it comes to crimes. Going alone to meet suspects...that sort of thing. But enjoyable and fun to see the romance build by reading one story after the other in order.

This book contains Ms. Carl's first three mysteries, The Chocolate Cat Caper, The Chocolate Bear Burglary and The Chocolate Frog Frame-Up. There is also a short story at the beginning of the book called The Chocolate Kidnapping Clue which helps set the stage for Lee McKinney's escapades. The Chocolate Cat Caper has our heroine serving at a party for the well-known Clementine Ripley whom no one likes in the town of Warner Pier. Lee's aunt was among those who hated Ms. Ripley. Clementine ate an amaretto truffle and died soon after which pointed the finger at Aunt Nettie. Lee bumbles about the clues and finds the murderer. In this book, she meets her sweetheart, Joe. The Chocolate Bear Burglary introduces more of the town's residents and her ex-stepson, Jeff, who happens to be in town when a burglary at the chocolate shop and a murder take place. Lee feels she must clear her stepson who doesn't seem to want to answer any questions. The Chocolate Frog Frame-up begins with an altercation between Joe and the town's resident eccentric, Hershel. After Hershel is murdered, the perpetrator goes to extreme lengths to frame Joe and even tries to kill him and Lee. All three are good stories and I am really enjoying the characters and look forward to reading more of this author's series.
