Two best friends sell books and bonbons—and solve crimes—in this mystery from the author of Death Is Like a Box of Chocolates…

Hoping to sweeten sales for their shop, Chocolates and Chapters, Michelle and Erica host a reception highlighting a new museum display of ancient Mayan pottery curated by Erica’s former mentor, Professor Addison Moody. The evening has a few hiccups, but the ladies soon smooth things over with ample servings of wine and chocolate.

Yet with the sweet comes the bitter. The very next day, the antiquities from the reception are discovered missing. The professor accuses Erica of having sticky fingers, claiming she wants revenge on him. And she’s only in more trouble after he’s found stabbed to death with one of the artifacts. Now Michelle must help Erica track down the real killer before someone else finds themselves in less than mint condition…

Scrumptious Chocolate-Making Recipes included!

Truffled to Death, the second book in the Chocolate Lovers Mystery Series brings wonderful characters and a great mystery together.  When Maya artifacts are stolen and a museum curator is killed, best friends Michelle Serrano and Erica Russell team up to find the art thief and catch a killer.

I’m not sure what events transpired in the first book, Death is Like a Box of Chocolates, but Michelle and Erica swear they are not investigating.  Interestingly enough, no one believes them.  Hmm.  Maybe because they just can’t help themselves. After all, Erica is an expert on the Maya culture and the dead professor was a mentor of hers at one time.

I was right along with the women in their quest to find out the truth.  Surprisingly, the women unknowingly stumble into the killer’s crosshairs and almost lose their lives.  I was surprised by how the book sucked me in.  I can’t wait for the next installment in this series.
