LET'S GET COZY: THE CHOCOLATE CASTLE CLUE - PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE CHOCOLATE CASTLE CLUE
A Chocoholic Mystery #11
BY JOANNA CARL
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Indulge in another Chocoholic mystery in the national bestselling series.

Lee McKinney Woodyard discovers a dusty trophy inside TenHuis Chocolade that belongs to her aunt Nettie and her old high school singing group, the Pier-O-Ettes. It’s a trophy that brings back terrible memories of an unsolved murder years ago.

Before Lee takes aim at the past, someone is murdered in the here and now. Lee needs to keep her eyes on the prize, hoping the trophy is a clue to finding the killer—before she’s a target herself.

ABOUT THE CHOCOHOLIC MYSTERIES SERIES:
All the Chocoholic Mysteries feature Lee McKinney, a Texas beauty queen transplanted to a Michigan resort, where she is business manager for TenHuis Chocolade, a business owned by her aunt, Nettie TenHuis.

Nearly six feet tall and a half-Dutch natural blonde, Lee is often under-estimated because she tends to get her “tang toungled” when she’s nervous. She’s a direct descendant of Mrs. Malaprop.

In addition to a mystery, the books feature a behind-the-scenes look at the business and art of making fine, European-style bonbons, truffles and molded chocolates.

The setting of the Chocoholic books is the fictional resort town of Warner Pier, Michigan. Set on the shore of Lake Michigan, Warner Pier’s quaint atmosphere and gorgeous beaches draw thousands of tourists and summer visitors each year. Many of the visitors are wealthy. Many come from families who have owned summer homes in the area for a hundred years. New housing developments have attracted professionals who commute to Holland or Grand Rapids. The 2,500 “locals” are employed in tourism or in growing peaches, apples, grapes, and other fruit – a business still important to Warner County, even as the area loses its original rural character. 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
JOANNA CARL is the pseudonym for a multi-published mystery writer. She spent 25 years in the newspaper business as a reporter, feature writer, editor, and columnist, most recently at the Lawton Constitution. She holds a degree in journalism from the University of OK and also studied in the O.U. Professional Writing program. She lives in Oklahoma but summers in Michigan where the Chocoholic Mystery series is set. She has one daughter who is a CPA and another who works for a chocolate company and provides yummy insider information on the chocolate business. Read more about JoAnna Carl (aka Eve K. Sandstrom) at her website HERE!

Chocolate! That always gets my attention. On the shore of Lake Michigan is another thing - I love books set near water plus I've read a few in this series and really like it.

I would love to read Let's Get Cozy: The Chocolate Castle Clue, and this book sounds like a book that would be great to read sitting by the fireplace and nibbling on chocolate at the same time.
Thanks!

I like that it's about a murder from the past but also a current murder. It's like a two for one mystery!
