Narrator Teresa DeBerry's versatile voice goes from gentle to flashy, bringing out the individual accents of the characters in this mystery. Lee McKinney is starting over in Warner Pier, Michigan, helping her aunt at her shop, TenHuis Chocolate. When the local Chamber of Commerce plans a teddy bear promotion for tourists, they're certain that their chocolate teddy bears will fly out of the shop. But one night TenHuis Chocolate is robbed, and valuable antique chocolate molds go missing. Soon after, the antiques dealer who lent them the molds is murdered, and Lee's stepson is the main suspect. DeBerry deftly evokes Lee's intrepid charm as an unlikely investigator out to get to the bottom of things.

But after a burglary at the shop, Gail meets with a grisly fate - and the main suspect in her murder is Lee’s troubled teenage stepson.

Don't waste your time
I read the first book in this series and found it annoying, but at least I finished it. This one was worse. The plot is unrealistic- step son from previous marriage runs away because his parents are thinking about getting together and gets involved in murder plot. The story made no sense. It was also very boring. Not could I not get into the story but I didn't find any of the characters interested. I finally gave up halfway through it. I will not buy a book by this author again.
Didn't know whodunit until the end
