Some things are practically irresistible: a cute puppy, a luscious chocolate confection, a charming rogue, a shot at stardom, the lure of buried treasure. The Chocolate Puppy Puzzle, the fourth book in Joanna Carl's Chocoholic mystery series, takes all these delicious ingredients and stirs them up with a dollop of Hollywood dreams and small-town scandals.
When a slick producer comes to town, he feeds a local writer's ego with sweet promises of a movie deal based on the family history she exploited in her novel -- a tale of a gangster, a local farmer's daughter, and missing moolah. But chocolate shop manager Lee McKinney soon suspects that the smooth-talking movie mogul is going to make even more trouble for her beloved little town than his sweet but mischievous chocolate Labrador puppy…and he's just as prone to digging into things that are best left undisturbed.
