Fatal Chocolate Obsession by Sally Berneathy
Once again Sally Berneathy has hit it out of the park with this book. Same lovable characters, murder, and intrigue.
A bouquet of roses, a bottle of wine, a crystal butterfly…and a dead man in the alley behind Death by Chocolate. Gifts for Lindsay, left in the middle of the night.
Is her ex-husband Rick between girlfriends and pursuing her again? Did he leave the roses and wine? He has done the out-of-season Santa Claus thing before. But when the crystal butterfly appears, Rick is in the hospital after a brutal attack leaves him near death.
If not Rick, then who? Is it someone she sees every day? The tall man who refuses to look her in the eye? The short man who looks her in the eye too long? The skinny man with crossed eyes who might or might not be looking her in the eye?
As the body count rises, Lindsay begins to see danger everywhere. Lindsay, Fred and Trent must catch this psycho stalker before someone else dies. Not bad enough he kills people. He also murders the English language in the horrible poems he leaves for her.
Butterflies are free and so are we.
Come fly away with me for all eternity.
I’ll shelter you from harm,
and always keep you safe and warm.
Anyone who troubles thee
will feel the wrath of me.
Review by Sue Hanson:
Wow! Once again Sally Berneathy has hit it out of the park with this book. Same lovable characters, murder, intrigue, and…Well, I will let you figure the rest out! I love how all of Sally Berneathy’s characters are so well developed and each one is so very different.
If you haven’t read any of the Death by Chocolate series, then do yourself a favor and start now. You can start at the first book and read forward (that would be my choice) or you can start with this book since it really will stand alone and you won’t be confused. If you start at this book, be prepared to “crave” all of the other Chocolate books.
Review by Shelby Welch:
I had been anxiously awaiting this installment of the Death by Chocolate series, and it’s the best ever. . . so far! I LOVE these characters, and Berneathy continues to develop their personalities as each story progresses. While I DID figure out the mystery pretty quickly, that did not hamper my interest in reading the book. . . if anything, it spurred me on to read how things were going to go down.
We see clear evidence of Lindsay’s heart of gold, even among the snarky comments and sarcastic replies, and the conversation at the end of the book melted my heart. Well-developed characters, intriguing mysteries, laugh-out-loud humor, and a sweet love story, emphasis on all things chocolate–what’s not to love?
Can’t wait for the next book!
