McKinney Woodyard feels she doesn't have enough to do with
her life. Running the TenHuis Chocolade shop and being newly
married just isn't cutting it. So she decides to take a seat
on the Warner Pier Library Board. Well, at least she will
attend a meeting and see what is is all about. Most of the
members arrive, and even though Abigail Montgomery is missing,
the meeting starts. As they get to the last item, they all
hear a loud scream. Lee is the first one to find the body
of Abigail at the bottom of the basement steps. Never one
to leave the solving of murders to the police, Lee gets involved.
She better be careful solving this murder - she could end
up past due.
to ponder: What was Abigail Montgomery doing in the library
basement? How did Lee's resume end up under the victim? Who
is Henry C Dunlap? What is Miss Vanderklomp hiding in the
basement? Just what is going on with Joe?
Carl has written another winner in her Chocoholic mystery
series. I think the stories have gotten better over the years.
The story is well-plotted and had me guessing until the very
end. I couldn't put it down. The pages were practically turning
themselves. I just had to know whodunit. So, if you like your
mystery filled with library quiet, then you should be reading
The Chocolate Book Bandit. The next book in this
wonderful series is out in hardcover - so look for The
Chocolate Clown Corpse.
