The Chocolate Snowman Murders by JoAnna Carl is the eighth in the “Chocoholic” mystery series. Publisher: NAL, September 2008
The scrumptious—and deadly— hardcover debut of the national bestselling Chocoholic Mysteries.
Lee McKinney Woodyard knows that being in the luxury chocolate business isn’t all sweetness and light, and neither is the holiday season. But she tries to draw the line at cold-blooded murder.
As treasurer of WinterFest, Lee is up to her elbows in the arguments, egos, and last-minute mix-ups that happen behind the scenes. But she’s coping, even when the guest juror of the art show shows up drunk. Lee leaves him to sleep it off, and is stunned the next day when her husband, Joe, discovers someone has put the visiting dignitary into a permanent state of repose…
Lee Woodyard and her husband being accused of murdering an art judge. Another body is found dead and Lee is chased through the snow by the murderer. This is all because of a long ago secret. I really enjoyed this murder mystery. I did figure out who the culprit was as soon as they made a slip of the tongue.
