Chocolate covered murder
Leslie Meier
Adult Fiction MEIER

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

The discovery of fisherman Max Fraser's body under the ice of a lake in wintry Tinker's Cove, Maine, propels Meier's fast-paced 18th Lucy Stone mystery (after 2011's English Tea Murder). Lucy, reporter for the Pennysaver, the local newspaper, doesn't believe Max's death was accidental, and soon becomes embroiled in a plot that involves two rival chocolatiers, a wealthy elderly couple from Connecticut, and plenty of local gossip. An intriguing story line compensates only in part for patches of clunky prose and unconvincing dialogue ("I hope he doesn't have post-traumatic stress syndrome like so many returning vets"). Some readers will be dismayed by the passive-aggressive way the often prudish, self-absorbed, and sexist residents of Tinker's Cove treat Tamzin Graves, the manager of a chocolate shop with a taste for flirting with men. Agent: Meg Ruley at the Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

From Library Journal:

Tinker's Cove is promoting Valentine's Day in a big way, but a chocolate-covered corpse wasn't part of the business plan. Lucy must investigate in this 18th entry in a perennially popular series (English Tea Murder). (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
