Mystery Woman Sleuth
Chocoholic Charity Penn must smoke out the killer to stop
her newly inherited beachside chocolate shop from going up
in flames in Dorothy St. James’ decadent follow-up to Asking
Chocolate shop owner Charity Penn is finally settling into
life in the quirky South Carolina seaside town of Camellia
Beach cooking up chocolate treats. She’s even helped
organize the town’s lively beach music festival which has
brought rollicking crowds eager to dance the Carolina shag.
That is, until one of the band’s lead singers is found dead
beside a beach bonfire.
While also trying to balance the amorous attention of music
star Bixby Lewis, in town for the festival, and her quest to
perfect a new hot flavored bonbon, Charity dives into the
investigation. Though it’s more spice than sugar when she
discovers a threatening note, comes across decades of
age-old secrets, and Bixby comes into the line of fire when
a gas grill explodes on the deck of a beachfront house.
Now Charity must turn up the heat and catch the killer
before her chance melts away in Playing With Bonbon Fire,
the delightful second Southern Chocolate Shop mystery served
up just right for fans of JoAnna Carl and Joanne Fluke.
