The first in a new series about chocolate, a cozy mystery. The characters are developed in depth and will appeal to you. The background is a small island off the coast of South Carolina. Penn is notified that she has won a series of cooking lessons. She has never entered a contest and sends a friend to look into the matter. The friend calls her and tells her to come and see what he has found. She will be surprised by it. The next morning the friend is found dead in a vat of chocolate. Penn and her feisty dog Stella arrived on the island to find the murderer. Yes, there is even a Sphinx cat. The ups and downs of the narrative will hold your attention until the book ends. I thought I knew the answer but I missed it. I highly recommend this book. Looking forward to the next one. Candy Recipes included.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Crooked Lane Books through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I have noticed a theme of candy in your reading lately. Are there more being published or is this just a current interest?
