Truffled to Death

A Chocolate Covered Mystery, #2

Hoping to spark sales for their shop, Chocolates and Chapters, Michelle and Erica host a reception featuring a display of ancient Mayan pottery curated by Erica’s former professor. However, things turn sticky when some of the antiquities turn up missing, and the prof accuses Erica; more so when the prof is stabbed to death and witnesses recall Erica threatening him.

Chocolate and books are two of my favorite things, which is one reason I was attracted to this series. Erica and Michelle are lively heroines and Kathy Aarons has done an excellent job with plot and characterization. We look forward to more in this series! Four stars!
