When Lee’s ex-husband’s son, Jeff
Godfrey, arrives in town, she’s happy to see him. But
when he vanishes while searching for memorabilia from the
movie, and then events happen which seem to mimic the movie,
Lee’s desperate to put the clues together and find her
ex-stepson. Especially because a person is shot on her doorstep

I love the twist of having a noir mystery
movie within a cozy mystery book. As usual, Lee’s getting

This was a really fast read for me, which
is a good thing when time is limited, and you just have to
know whodunnit. It is appropriate for teens on up and would
be good for a book club.
There are several“Chocolate Chat”
pages throughout the book. and within them are several yummy
chocolate filled recipes. You might want to browse through
the book before you read it and make sure you have the necessary
ingredients for one or two on hand.
