    Highly recommended

    When I read her stories I can't put them down till I find out who did it. The chocolate trivia is interesting too.

    A True Treasure

    Obsidian Mystery
    A Division of Penguin Publishing
    10th Book in The Chocoholic Mystery Series
    Hardcover Release October 5, 2010

    Pirates in Warner Pier, well of course! Since a certain pirate movie became a huge success, Young Blackbeard, (what movie did you think I meant?) pirates are showing up everywhere. They even leaped aboard Joe and Lee's antique powerboat while they were out for a little cruise. The buccaneers hopped about doing a little jig, played a little music and performed a few acrobatics and then dove into the water and disappeared.

    The pirates visited a few more boats and great fun was had by all. It was the "Summer of the Warner Pier Pirates", heck the local playhouse was even gearing up to perform the Pirates of Penzance. Everything was swimming along nicely until a body was found floating in Lake Michigan with a Jolly Roger tattoo, then the fun quickly came to a halt. Lee decides to plunge herself into the investigation to find out exactly what these swashbucklers are up to.

    I love this series and since Pirates are our high school mascot, I loved it even more. I am also a true CHOCOHOLIC!!! so this book is definitely perfect for me!! These stories are fast paced so be ready for some wild page turning fun with a chocolate twist. JoAnna Carl is a master storyteller when it comes to the cozy genre. By this 10th installment I feel like part of the TenHuis family, and love each and every predicament this family gets itself dipped into, no matter if it is milk chocolate or the deepest darkest chocolate, you always have to be ready for the surprise gooey center. Reading these books is a truly tasty morsel with zero calories.

    This is a complex creative and exciting mystery

    Small town Warner Pier deals with harsh winters from the freezing temperatures made even colder by winds blowing out from Lake Michigan. In the summer, the town is a tourist attraction with a giant shopping mall in the location of the TenHuis Chocolate. Lee McKinney Woodyard is the business manager of the store and she is married to Joe, a part time boat maker and part time lawyer. While sailing their boat for a night on Lake Michigan, three pirates board their vessel, perform a show, and disappear into dark water.

    Throughout the summer, the pirates repeat their performance for other tourists. The townsfolk are amused by their antics, but others are more interested in the play The Pirates of Penzance being performed and the younger crowd prefers the boat being made for the star of the movie Young Blackbeard. Marco Spear. Many locals believe the actor will come to town to pick up his boat and want to see him. A drowning victim is found, but later it is learned he was shot in the head. All of these events are linked to a daring crime that could lead to more fatalities if Joe, Lee and the chief of police are not careful.

    The savory descriptions of gourmet chocolate will have readers craving sweets, but the story line is much more delicious. This is a complex creative and exciting mystery and although Lee does not actively investigate, information always seems to come her way and she then deduces their relevance to the events that occur targeting the Police Chief and Joe so she indirectly becomes involved with what is going on at Warner Pier. Like Lee, readers will struggle to connect the dots to find the link that connect all the plot points.
