Daily Review: The Great Chocolate Scam by Sally Berneathy
September 16, 2018
Finally, Rick has agreed to sign the divorce papers and give Lindsay her freedom! She is sitting in her lawyer’s office waiting for him when she gets the call.
Rick is dead. Murdered by a bomb that blew up his car in his own driveway.
Lindsay is his sole heir. Or is she? She’s never met any of Rick’s family. Though he told her various conflicting stories about them, she came to believe they didn’t exist, that Rick was an alien stranded here when the mother ship left without him.
But then Rick’s mother and two brothers show up followed by a woman who claims to be his ex-wife and a boy she claims is Rick’s son. Everyone except Lindsay wants to inherit Rick’s estate. What’s so valuable that someone killed for it and is ready to kill again?
Come for the Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars, stay for the murder, mayhem, and fun!
I really loved this series and can’t wait for her to write another one!! These books were so much fun, I had to buy all of her books for my kindle.
Lindsay once again finds herself in lots of trouble. When a car bomb goes off in her soon to be ex-husbands driveway, his relatives start coming out of the woodwork wanting his estate. Lindsay has never met any of his family and now she knows why!!
Their all crazy! His mother who is a bossy control freak, that is broke. His two brothers who can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Then there is the old girlfriend who swears her boy is Ricks son and should inherit everything.
Put them all together and it is one crazy thing after another. I found myself glued to my kindle waiting to see what happens next. I do hope that she comes out with a new book soon because I am dying to see what Fred ACTUALLY does for a living. His outings with Lindsay are so funny.

This book is the third, and it all started with Death By Chocolate, and that’s the name of Lindsay’s restaurant. She is trying to get a divorce from Rick, her cheating husband and all she wants is HER restaurant, and a house they had as rental property.
She is not asking for their big home that he is now sharing with Muffie, or is it Buffie? Who knows, then his car explodes! Is Rick dead? He seems to have more family than she ever imagined and they are all coming out to get a piece of the fortune.
Are they his true family? With the help of her neighbor Paula who is a partner in the restaurant, to her other neighbor Fred, who is very mysterious in his own right, you will laugh as they try to figure it all out. Lindsay gets in the shower and who do you think is in there!
Read the book to find out!

As always, Sally Berneathy’s characters were charming, funny and intriguing. Sporting the same cast of characters from the first books of the series and a few new “characters” guaranteed that you will love this book. Lindsay (the heroine) is always finding herself in new and unusual predicaments.
That’s where her loving, although eccentric friends come into play. Like a bull in a china closet, Lindsay and her gang investigate with a flare that only Ms. Berneathy can create. The plot is filled with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat if you haven’t already fallen out of your chair laughing!
The characters are so well developed that you will feel as if you have fallen into the book and are hanging out with the gang. This book can stand alone, but don’t cheat yourself. The other books of the series are wonderfully entertaining and will help you actually develop a friendship with the cast of characters. By all means, read this book! But…treat yourself to a real “chocolate high” and read them all in order. You won’t be disappointed.
Oh, I almost forgot…the chocolate recipes in the back of the books are “to die for”! Thank you, Sally, for yet another great book. I am looking forward to the next one already.
