In the continuing stories of Lucy Stone Chocolate Covered Murder is everything you would expect. I have fallen in love with Lucy because she seems so real- just like a friend. Great characters are the reason I return again and again to a series. Chocolate Covered Murder is a mystery you can read st bedtime and still know that everything will be okay in the morning!

Chocolate Covered Murder by Leslie Meier Typical New England seaside town where in a small town everybody knows everybody. She is a newspaper reporter and there's a lot going around in town during the winter. Death on the ice while ice fishing, chamber of commerce meetings how to promote the town so others will visit and celebrate Valentines Day, award to 1st and 2nd best New England chocolate shops-both are in town and in competition with one another, returning military man, tourists looking for a house to buy, and drug related crimes, Valentine ball to attract tourists in winter, dessert contest, Lucy continues to gain info about things going on in town to help solve the murder while doing her regular job. Some things just don't fit. Economy during this time is bad but people find things beside money to pay for things to get done. Even though a lot of things are going on it is easy to keep track of everybody and what they do for a living and how they are related to. There are a lot of mysteries as murders become solved: the title makes sense. Really like this town, people and how they help one another. You just don't see that in today's society is some towns. Whoever says nothing ever happens in the winter needs to read this book. I rate it a 5 out of 5.

Reviewed by Alice DiNizo for Readers' Favorite Leslie Meier has created another first-rate story featuring news reporter Lucy Stone of Tinker's Cove, Maine. In "Chocolate Covered Murder", it is wintertime but things heat up when Chanticleer Chocolate, newcomer to the town, is voted "Best Candy on the Coast". Longtime local Fern's Famous Fudge has always won this award. And now Lucy gets to interview the owner of Chanticleer Chocolate, the handsome Trey Meacham. Lucy drives off on a frigid Maine night to interview Trey and is helped by Max Fraser when she runs off the road to avoid hitting a deer. But then Max is found dead, frozen solid in local Blueberry Pond. There are certainly problems cropping up around Tinker's Cover. Tamzin Graves, Trey Meacham's assistant at Chanticleer Chocolate, wears revealing and very tight clothing and thinks nothing of throwing herself at the local male population. And Lucy's friend Renee who sells real estate is dealing with a charming couple, Roger and Helen Faircloth, who are looking at expensive local homes for sale but they seem to be leaving unpaid bills behind in their wake. Lucy is fighting off extra pounds. The question is whether she can find out what is really going on in Tinker's Cover. "Chocolate Covered Murder" is another well-written and delightful murder mystery by Leslie Meier that will leave readers totally satisfied and awaiting the next Lucy Stone mystery. Not too much blood and gore, totally believable characters, both good and bad, being seductive and not so seductive, make "Chocolate Covered Murder" a must read for mystery lovers everywhere. The plot line proceeds with twists and turns to the story's conclusion and the dialogue suits the storyline well. Leslie Meier has done it again: created a story that readers everywhere will love.

There¿s never a dull moment in Tinker¿s Cove, Maine¿or so it seems to the ¿Pennysaver¿s¿ star reporter, Lucy Stone. After sitting through a seemingly never-ending town meeting about wastewater issues (which was about as exciting as watching grass grow) Lucy heads back to her home on Red Top Road, only to end up stuck in a snow bank while trying to avoid hitting a deer. Shaken, but okay, Lucy pictures her frozen demise on the front page of the Pennysaver. Out of nowhere, good Samaritan, Max Fraser stops and tows her snow-buried car to safety. He refuses payment and suggests she ¿Pay it forward¿. Little did Lucy know how she would be doing just that.When Max¿s body is found frozen and tangled in his ice fishing line with a silver jigging spoon in his mouth, Lucy puts her ¿sleuthing cap¿ on to determine if he actually fell through pithy ice or who his killer might be.Complicating her already hectic schedule of family, home and job is the Tinker¿s Cove Chamber of Commerce¿s Valentine travel promotion, ¿Love is Best on the Coast¿ complete with a Valentine Dessert competition, a semi-formal dance and a request to do an article on an older romantic couple who have ¿Made Their Love Last¿. Lucy chooses a new-to-the-area couple; Roger and Helen Faircloth who seem like the ideal couple..so affectionate, genuine and loving after 40+ years of marriage. Or are they?? With a million details to complete before Valentine¿s Day, promotion organizer, Corney Clarke breezes into the newspaper office and relays a tremendous scoop that the newest business in town.¿ Chanticleer Chocolate¿ has swept ¿The Best Candy on the Coast¿ distinction away from locally owned ¿Fern¿s Famous Fudge¿. Was the win really due to the unique flavors of their exorbitantly-priced candies? Or could it be due to the charms of the over-exposed sales clerk named Tamzin Graves? She had charmed the men of the community, including the late Max Fraser! Lucy is sent by Editor and Boss Ted, to interview her as well as her ruggedly handsome but mysterious Boss, Trey Meacham . She combines her sleuthing abilities with her reporter¿s duties, while accusatory fingers point to the sometimes caustic and sarcastic co-owner of ¿Fern¿s Famous¿, Dora Fraser who also happens to be Max¿s jealous ex-wife. She runs her theories past preoccupied Sheriff Barney Culpepper whose Son, Eddie has just returned home from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and hooks up with Max and Dora¿s Daughter, Lily. Could Dora be capable of such a deed? She had received a double whammy with Max¿s death and losing the contest for best candy on the coast to a new business who didn¿t even make their product on the premises! Who else would be strong enough to lift Max¿s lifeless body? There are many twists and turns in this story as is true with all of Ms. Meier¿s murder mysteries. I truly enjoy the new and returning quirky characters. You think you have it figured, then you¿re thrown a curve ball! This is a fast, easy read and another Lucy Stone adventure you¿ll truly enjoy and be anxious for the next.*Kensington ARC* Nancy Narma
