Mystery Cozy | Mystery Woman Sleuth

With this being the first in a new series, DEATH IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES written by Kathy Aaron will be a delicious addition to any cozy mystery lover's library! Packed full of exhilarating characters this novel is fully entertaining. Each chapter gave you just enough to keep the pages turning without losing any interest. Packed with wit and just enough suspense, it is a great start to a new series.

Michelle Serrano has a love for making chocolate and owns her own little shop that is combined with her best friend, Erica Russell's bookstore. The two are in partnership in their little town of West Riverdale, Maryland. Memorial Day weekend is coming up and as they prepare for the Great Fudge Cook-off and Arts Festival, the local photographer was found dead in their shop with truffles made by Michelle. How will this affect their weekend festivities as well as their profits and Michelle's reputation? Is her career over just when she was about to get public recognition?

Michelle and Erica play detectives themselves when they felt that their dreams are crashing before their eyes. While the need to find who was responsible for their friend's murder while clearing Michelle's name is their top priority, the two take matters into their own hands by asking the locals questions that may bring them more harm than good.

What a wonderful new cozy mystery series, A Chocolate Covered Mystery will be! With the first book, DEATH IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES, written by Kathy Aaron, it quickly caught my attention with all my favorites, a mystery, chocolate, and a hilarious assortment of characters! This mouth-watering storyline has all the appeal of a marvelous mystery series in the making. I look forward to see what adventures Aaron will have our two amateur sleuths involved in with the next book.
