Welcome to Cozy Wednesday!
I was really hoping JoAnna Carl would be able to stop by for a visit
but we were unable to connect this time.
I will keep trying because I love the way she writes!!
The Chocolate Moose Motive:
A Chocoholic Mystery
Book 12 in Series
Obsidian (October 2, 2012)
Published by New American Library
A Division of The Penguin Group
Hardcover: 224 pages
TenHuis Chocolade is such a busy place Lee thinks they may need more help. When she overhears an argument in the grocery store and does a little investigating she believes she has found her new payroll clerk.
Forsynthia “Sissy” Smith is a the granddaughter of the area’s only remaining hippie. She lives east of town with her grandmother at the Moose Lodge. The place was once an informal commune. Lee has learned that Sissy’s husband Buzz was found shot to death the previous winter and Sissy was the prime suspect according to all the local gossip even though she had an airtight alibi. The argument Lee overheard in the grocery store was between Sissy and Buzz’s dad, a retired army colonel. He is planning to sue Sissy for custody of her son.
When the biggest gossip in town is found dead — by Sissy — Lee knows they is much more to the story. But she knows if this person has killed twice already they will have no problem killing again, even if it is just a clever chocolatier trying to uncover the truth.
Yes, I am a chocoholic and I am addicted to chocolate and to JoAnna Carl’s Chocoholic Mysteries.
This series is fun and the characters are addicting. I anxiously await each installment to see what Lee and Aunt Nettie and the other residents of Warner Pier are up to this time.
This time we meet two new residents that I hope come back in the future, Sissy and her grandmother Wildflower. Wildflower is a taxidermist and yes there is a moose head above her fireplace. It was there when they moved in and is the reason she is now one of the best taxidermists in the area. Sissy is would at TenHuis Chocolade and thinking about going to college.
The book is a fast lighthearted read and even includes a fudge recipe and a few interesting chocolate facts. You can’t go wrong with a JoAnna Carl cozy!
