"Lee and Joe are newlyweds, but you wouldn't know it. Joe works late, and Lee has a major crisis when the air-conditioning goes out in TenHuis Chocolade. Then the houseguests from hell arrive; that's seven people with one bathroom, before the arrival of the man claiming to be Joe's father, who has been presumed dead for thirty years."

A present for a Birthday Group member who has it in her WishList.

I love cozy mysteries – they’re fun to read, have a bit of complexity in their mysteries and yet, they read so easily, as the pages turn by themselves! This book is no exception to this and I had a great time reading it. I don’t have much to say, as it’s a good book, not too long to read and had great facts about chocolate. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more books in this series!

Thank you, carelaisa! I love cozy mysteries too, never met one I didn't like. ;-) Especially if chocolate is involved.

I look forward to reading it and I appreciate your thoughtfulness. Will be great to drink some of the tea you sent, while reading it!

Fun! I’m not reading this series in order: read the first one, I think it was, a few years ago, and this one is the seventh. But I didn’t feel as though I missed anything important – it stands alone quite well.

Reading about chocolate does tend to make one’s mouth water! Glad I finished the book before starting my diet! 😊

The mystery was good, with an interesting cast of characters and enough plot twists to keep me guessing. Lee should be nominated for sainthood – being newly married to Joe and suddenly having the house filled with several guests whom she has to feed, in addition to her usual work at Ten Huis Chocolade…in a rare Michigan heat wave. With no air conditioning in the house, and the shop’s AC not working, tempers flare and lots of chocolate risks being destroyed. Talk about stress! And (maybe here is where I may have missed something by not reading the intervening books) new husband Joe doesn’t seem very attentive or helpful. Unless his introduction in an earlier book highlighted some of his good qualities, I don’t think he’s much of a catch – he certainly did not impress me in this book!

This was a quick, enjoyable read. I really like Ms. Carl’s writing style.

Thanks again, carelaisa (and bookworm-lady)!
