    From the moment I started reading this book, I was sure that I had read it before, most likely three to five years ago I couldn t remember the whole story, but it was all very familiar And since I couldn t remember whodunit, I figured I d go ahead and read it again It was a decent bit of brain candy, but I am making sure that I log this one and give away my book It s not destined for a third go around new word porte cochere

    This book didn t move along as well as the previous in the series and I just didn t enjoy it quite as much I expect to try the next one and depending on how it pans out, it may be the last That being said I do like these characters a lot They are funny and quirky and just what one might expect to find in a small quiet town that is mostly resort I certainly recommend giving the series a try if you haven t already.

    I love, love, love these chocolate mysteries This one was satisfyingly creepy as far as wondering who the murderer was JoAnna Carl never fails to disappoint with one or two exciting chase scenes in her stories I love her main character, Lee McKinney She s the blond bombshell with a backbone of steel.

    Interesting.From other reviews, it is obvious that what appeals to me are books that I don t know the answer halfway through laying out the puzzle This was one of those Truly a good book and its about chocolate

    I can t wait for the next one to come out I could read these cozies over and over again.

    This novel was enjoyable, but I think it had a lot of potential that wasn t used When the premise was introduced a friend of Lee s from another city is killed , I thought this was going to be one of those books in a cozy mystery series where we see the protagonist outside their normal, small town atmosphere However, most of the suspects and people involved in the mystery end up basically traveling down to the chocolate shop to see Lee I did like all the complex characters and continuing stories of the normal characters learning about Lee s wedding issues, Lindy s family, and Jolly Dolly s advancing chocolate knowledge I just think this novel could have been the one to deviate from the normal formula in the series.
