9780451414809: The Chocolate Moose Motive: A Chocoholic Mystery

When Lee hires a free-spirited employee with a tie-dyed, troubled past, she discovers that even the counterculture can conceal a killer....
 
As much as the chocolate concoctions at TenHuis Chocolade can tantalize people’s tongues, Lee’s newest hire is more likely to make them wag. Forsythia “Sissy” Smith is the granddaughter of Warner Pier’s resident hippie, but the fact that Sissy is a third-generation flower child is the least of Lee’s concerns. The previous winter, Sissy’s husband, Buzz, was found dead, and even though her alibi was airtight, the gossips are still pointing their fingers at her.
 
Then the chief gossip is found dead, with Sissy on the scene. Was she lured there? Or is she the killer? Lee has a sneaking suspicion that someone is out to keep a dark secret from coming to light. And they would have no problem killing a certain clever chocolatier who might uncover the truth....  

With Tasty Chocolate Trivia!

About the Author:

JoAnna Carl is the pseudonym for a multipublished mystery writer. She spent more than twenty-five years in the newspaper business as a reporter, feature writer, editor, and columnist. She holds a degree in journalism from the University of Oklahoma and also studied in the OU Professional Writing Program. She lives in Oklahoma but summers in Michigan, where the Chocoholic Mystery series is set.

From Booklist:

After overhearing a man bully a woman, Lee learns that the woman, Sissy, was accused of killing her husband. Sissy’s father-in-law wants custody of her son and publicly bullies her often. Most of the residents in her small Michigan town, even the sheriff, believe Sissy is guilty, even though she has an alibi. Lee decides to offer Sissy a job in the business department of TenHuis Chocolade. When the angry father-in-law’s housekeeper is murdered after contacting Sissy, Lee tries to help collect evidence clearing her new employee. Then, after Sissy’s house is broken into, Lee attempts to make a cast of some suspicious footprints, only to have her evidence destroyed. As the killer becomes more aggressive, many readers may guess whodunit, but this series continues to maintain likable characters and believable situations flavored with interesting plot twists and mouthwatering chocolate references. Fans of the series will also enjoy those penned by Jessica Beck and Livia J. Washburn. --Amy Alessio
