Book 4 in DEATH BY CHOCOLATE series
from USA Today Bestselling Author, Sally Berneathy

A phone call at two a.m. is never good news. But there's bad news and then there's strange news. Lindsay's two a.m. call is a plea for help. There's a woman in Fred's closet and he can't get her out.

Their new neighbor, Sophie Fleming, has taken up sleepwalking, straight into Fred's house and his bedroom closet. She's having nightmares about the brutal stabbing of a little girl named Carolyn. But Carolyn was her imaginary childhood friend.

Lindsay, Fred, Trent, Paula and Henry must solve a twenty-year old murder with no bodies, no DNA and no proof the victims ever existed.

How can someone who never lived be murdered? Why is Sophie seeing it happen in Fred's bedroom? Why is she hiding in his closet? Will his clothes even fit her?

Meet the Author

I grew up in a small rural town in southeastern Oklahoma where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be due to the fact that everybody in my family has a singing voice like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories—ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories.

For as long as I can remember I've been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It's hard to make listeners sit still for the length of a book! Like my family's tales, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic.

Besides writing, my interests are reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley.

I have two ongoing mystery series, Death by Chocolate (Death by Chocolate; Murder, Lies and Chocolate; and The Great Chocolate Scam, and Chocolate Mousse Attack) and Charley’s Ghost (The Ex Who Wouldn’t Die and The Ex Who Glowed in the Dark).

I also sold fifteen romance novels ranging from comedy to dark suspense under the names Sally Carleen, Sally Steward and Sara Garrett. For those novels, I won several awards including National Readers' Choice, Romantic Times Best Silhouette Romance and two Rita finalist slots. Most of the Silhouettes are available as e-books, and I have e-pubbed five of the out-of-print single titles.

Contact information is available on my website. I love to talk to readers! And writers. And riders. And computer programmers. And teachers. And gardeners. And dogs. And puppets and poets and pirates and pawns and kings. Okay, I just plain love to talk!

Lindsey finally has her divorce and her relationship with hunky Detective Trent is progressing. King Henry is as wonderful as ever with an obsession for catnip that even a 2-legged druggie couldn’t beat. The mystery in this 4th book of the series, goes back in time, long before Fred, Lindsey and Paula have lived on this street. Now it’s Fred who is in a predicament and his lack of knowledge about women is very evident. Will King Henry figure it out before the others? Will Lindsey’s life, once again, be at risk? You’ll never know until you start reading. Each of Berneathy’s books are quick, easy reads, each with their own story but involving the same base group of characters. While reading them in order is not necessary to get the gist of each story, it would certainly make understanding the who, what and why much easier to understand. I could easily become borderline obese if I didn’t carefully watch how many of these dynamite recipes I indulge in. Once again, I’m eagerly anticipating the next book in the Death by Chocolate Series.

I've read the first three in the series and have to say that this plot was one of the better ones. Less predictable than the others. Once again, way too much time spent on telling us about each and every Coke she consumes and every time she eats something chocolate. Don't her characters ever eat regular food? Light, easy read. Overall a good series with some nice recipes at the end of each book.

I absolutely LOVE this series. The characters are absolutely awesome, especially Fred, and the recipes are to die for. Chocolate Mousse Attack was a great addition to the series and I loved watched the characters' relationships grow and change. Again, readers are given a chance to hate Rickhead and are further exposed to his annoying son, but feelings about Rickie start to change - just a bit. I can't wait for more from this series.

Although I hadn't read any of the previous novels in the Death by Chocolate series, I was able to slide easily into the world of Lindsay, Fred, Paula, Trent, and their other friends. And what an enjoyable world it is. Lindsay bakes and sells what sound like divine chocolate desserts (and the author thoughtfully provides us with the recipes at the end) while solving mysteries at the same time. Great combination...what could be better than curling up with chocolate and a good book? The mystery this time involves a new neighbor whose sleepwalking tendencies suggest past trauma. She thinks she saw a child murdered years ago in Fred's house. Is she imagining things or did a tragedy really happen? Is someone trying to frighten her and drive her away from the neighborhood, or is she just a bit of a nutcase? Lindsay's witty, wise-cracking voice is one of the best things about this novel. She had me laughing out loud on numerous occasions. The secondary characters are richly developed, even when smarmy (Lindsay's ex husband), bratty (the devilish young son of her ex), or enigmatic (Fred). Fast pacing and a solid plot combined with Lindsay's engaging narrative to produce a hard-to-put-down treat. I will definitely be grabbing copies of the earlier books in this series. And later ones. Warmly recommended!

Who knew chocolate could be a major food source? Uh, well, obviously fans of Sally Berneathy's Death by Chocolate series all know. This hilarious series can be classified as cozy mystery or sweet romance or maybe even as a cookbook, because at the end of the book there are some chocolate recipes possibly used in the restaurant/chocolate shop owned by protagonist Lindsay. The mystery again involves Lindsay's pals and co-worker and, of course, Lindsay's detective boyfriend as they dig through the memories of their sleepwalking new neighbor, and of course those memories contain murder, mayhem, and a string of clues. The mystery and action pace is good, the heroine is hilarious, and the "stepson" will remind most readers of the brattiest child they have ever known.

Chocolate, Coke, and a little mystery are the mainstays of sweet shop owner Lindsay Powell's life. She always finds herself snooping around when an intriguing situation arises. In book four of the Death by Chocolate series, Lindsay and her cast of characters find themselves chasing after an imaginary friend who may be more real than imaginary. New neighbor, Sophie Fleming, moved back to the house where she lived as a child. Dreams plague her and she sleepwalks into her neighbor Fred's house and hides in his closet. This turn of events has Fred calling Lindsay to come and coax Sophie out. The two of them, with Lindsay's ex-husband's son in tow, persuade Sophie to give up her roost. But her re-entry into the real world comes with a call for someone named Carolyn. From there the fun ride begins! You'll enjoy being a fly on the wall, watching the action unfold as Lindsay and her partners in chaos unravel the mystery of the imaginary friend. But what is very real is the chocolate. Get this one and enjoy a good read and the recipes in the back.
