Description

Food and cocktails columnist Hayley Powell is not looking for love this Valentine's Day. Of course she also isn't planning on looking for a murderer. . .

Fed up with dating after a disastrous setup, the only thing Hayley wants to snuggle up to is a box of made-to-order chocolates from plus-sized, plus-mouthed chocolatier Bessie Winthrop. But when Bessie is found dead in her kitchen, only Hayley suspects that Bessie's "heart attack" might actually be a candy-coated murder.

Turns out Bessie had more enemies than a boxful of chocolates, each one a suspicious flavor. It's sticky business juggling a job, two teenagers and finding a killer, but it's better than letting a killer find Hayley first. . .

Includes seven delectable recipes from Hayley's kitchen!

        January 1, 2014

        Just before Valentine's Day, a local chocolatier is murdered in her kitchen, and with her usual bad timing, newspaper columnist/amateur sleuth Hayley Powell finds the corpse. The fourth entry for the Maine-set cozy (after Death of a Coupon Clipper) indexes its food and cocktail recipes.
