Bonbon with the Wind (Southern Chocolate Shop Mystery)
by Dorothy St. James

Bonbon with the Wind is a fascinating, character-driven mystery . . . The Southern Chocolate Shop is one of my favorite series and I look forward to my next visit to Camellia Beach.

I liked how the characters have grown within this series. The scene is wonderfully described. We feel the emotions and struggles and have to pay close attention to gather all the clues subtly salted on each page.

Chocolate, great characters, a cute dog, and a mystery combine into one fantastic read in this new installment to this great series . . . I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.

I have to say that I loved everything about it. Penn, Stella, Harley, Bertie, and Althea are all wonderful characters, and I can’t wait to read more in this series.
~Baroness’ Book Trove

Bonbon with the Wind is a delightful mystery . . . I find this series has more substance than many other cozy mysteries.
~View from the Birdhouse

Bonbon with the Wind has lots of my favorite things: the beach, pets, a storm, chocolate, a ghost story, and a couple of quirky, elderly sisters named Trixie and Barbie . . . I quickly became attached to the characters and enchanted with Camellia Beach.

Join Penn and Stella on their latest adventure!

There’s a legend in the Sea Islands that before a hurricane hits the Gray Lady can be seen walking down the beach warning of doom. Penn doesn’t believe in such silly stories, but she does believe weather forecasters. A powerful hurricane is heading their way. Everyone on the island of Camellia Beach is busy boarding up windows and securing valuables to upper levels of buildings. Joe Davies, a local treasure hunter with an unquenchable sweet tooth, claims to have seen the Gray Lady walking toward him just that morning and is terrified for his life.

After the storm passes everyone returns to survey the damage. As Penn walks her little dog Stella on the beach, she finds Joe Davies’ body washed up onshore. Not only that, it looks as if an exploding transformer caused Joe’s seaside shack to burn to the ground. Did the Gray Lady claim another victim? Many on the island believe that is exactly what happened.

Penn is sure there’s another explanation. She follows the clues and hints of lost gold to discover that the truth behind the treasure hunter’s death is as much of a maze as the boating channels winding their way through the local marshes.
