of a Chocolate-Covered Cherry
Scumble River Mysteries, # 10
by Denise Swanson
Murder of a Chocolate Covered Cherry, by Denise Swanson,
is a very cute book. I had never read anything by this author prior
to this book, and so was not familiar with her writing or type of
writing, but I enjoyed it immensely.
Skye Denison is entered
into a cooking contest by her mother, May. It seems that May has
decided to submit four recipes to this contest in each of the categories,
and because she can't use her name on all of them, she chooses to
use the names of other members of her family. Which means that those
other family members, if they accept, have to prepare the dish for
the contest, not once, but three times.
So Skye plays along
with Mom and decides to help her out with this contest. It's a contest
that is unique. On day one, practice session, kitchens are being
sabotaged. Day two practice round, they find one of the contestants
dead in the chocolate fountain, and guess what her name is? Cherry!
So now that you’ve got the name of the book out of the way, what
else will happen during this contest?
A teenager goes missing.
Or is she kidnapped? What does any of this have to do with the contest?
Nothing, or everything?
What other contestants
are hiding secrets that could ruin their chances of winning? Is
the Fine Foods Company being sold? They are the sponsors of this
yearly contest. What stipulation is part of that sale in order for
it to go through? And who is trying to make sure that sale never
As you can see, this
book is not only about a cooking contest. Pick up the book, sit
back in your favorite chair with your feet up and enjoy some chocolate
covered bonbons as you read this great little Scumble River Mystery
