Mystery

Deveraux Sinclair returned to her hometown to take over the old five and dime. In her former life she held a high powered job in finance. The only thing she has left is her prized car. Her gift shop is barely making it but she's never been happier.

Just before closing, someone comes in and offers her some vintage chocolate molds, she gets them for a very good price. When the lady who sold them to her is found dead the next day her best friend is questioned, and Dev will find herself drawn into another murder investigation.

With her boyfriend on an undercover assignment and her high school sweetheart trying to get back in her good graces, Dev has her hands full. With Poppy's assistance, Dev will learn more about Elise Whitmore and her life.

What Dev learns will expose both current and past secrets. Events which broke her family apart will need to be examined in a new light.

Ms. Swanson sets her series in small towns where very few secrets can be kept. Those that are kept are buried deep. Lives will be disrupted in a big way. Peopled with unique characters, Ms. Swanson's books are always entertaining.

SUMMARY

Dev’s five-and-dime may be doing well, but her love life is in turmoil. She’s torn between Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio, who is on an undercover assignment, and her ex-beau Noah Underwood, the local doctor from a high-society family. So she welcomes the distraction when Elise Whitmore offers her a great deal on antique chocolate molds that would be perfect for her Easter gift baskets. But do the molds actually belong to Elise’s soon-to-be ex-husband? In buying them, has Dev committed a felony?

When Elise is found shot to death, the mystery deepens—and Dev’s good friend Boone, who discovered the body, is taken into custody. With the help of her best buds, Dev must clear Boone’s name and find the real killer. Good thing that when it comes to amateur sleuths, they broke the mold with Dev Sinclair.
