Synopsis

Lucy Stone, mother of three, works as a reporter on her local paper in the small town of Tinker's Cove, Maine. She's asked to write an article about a new local business, Chanticleer's Chocolates. But, as is so often the case with Lucy, it turns out not to be your usual run-of-the mill assignment . . .

A local fisherman drowns suspiciously and then Chanticleer's sultry store manager turns up dead and covered in chocolate. Is this the work of a bitter ex-wife? Or is a rival fudge shop, recently stripped of its status as the "Best Candy on the Coast", behind her demise? With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Lucy gets on the case.

Sweeter than sugar, this wonderfully fun and cozy mystery from New York Times bestseller Leslie Meier is a delight from start to finish.
