LET'S GET COZY! TRUFFLED TO DEATH: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
TRUFFLED TO DEATH
A Chocolate Covered Mystery
BY KATHY AARONS

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Two best friends sell books and bonbons—and solve crimes—in this mystery from the author of Death Is Like a Box of Chocolates…

Hoping to sweeten sales for their shop, Chocolates and Chapters, Michelle and Erica host a reception highlighting a new museum display of ancient Mayan pottery curated by Erica’s former mentor, Professor Addison Moody. The evening has a few hiccups, but the ladies soon smooth things over with ample servings of wine and chocolate.

Yet with the sweet comes the bitter. The very next day, the antiquities from the reception are discovered missing. The professor accuses Erica of having sticky fingers, claiming she wants revenge on him. And she’s only in more trouble after he’s found stabbed to death with one of the artifacts. Now Michelle must help Erica track down the real killer before someone else finds themselves in less than mint condition…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kathy Aarons is the author of Death is Like a Box of Chocolates, the first in the Chocolate Covered Mystery series by Berkley Prime Crime.

Research for the series was such a hardship: sampling chocolate, making chocolate, sampling more chocolate, and hanging out in bookstores.

Kathy grew up in rural Pennsylvania, attended Carnegie Mellon University, and moved to New York City where she built her career in public relations and met her husband. They relocated to California where she became one of “those” moms: running the PTA, fundraising for school foundations, helping with a high school writers conference, creating costumes for youth theater, building puppets, and cheering on her daughters in hundreds of swim meets and soccer and basketball games.

She began writing when her youngest daughter attended school five days a week and pursued publishing more seriously when her oldest daughter went off to college.

She now lives in San Diego with her husband and two daughters where she wakes up far too early, and is currently obsessed with the Broadway Idiot documentary, finding the perfect cup of coffee, and Dallmann’s Sea Salt Caramels.

FIRST BOOK IN THE SERIES BY KATHY AARONS:


PRAISE FOR KATHY AARONS' WORK:
“Kathy Aarons has penned a delectably devious mystery in Death Is Like a Box of Chocolates. Best friends and amateur sleuths, Michelle and Erica make a formidable duo as they unwrap their first chocolate covered mystery. Any lover of chocolate and books will find this story the perfect combination of savory, sweet, and deadly.” –Jenn McKinlay, New York Times bestselling author of SUGAR AND ICED

“Kathy Aarons’ deft blend of delicious chocolate and tasty mystery will delight the reader’s palate.” –Victoria Hamilton, National Bestselling Author of MUFFIN BUT MURDER

I read the first book in this series, Death is Like a Box of Chocolates, and I am thrilled the second book is here! I like the relationship between the main characters Michelle and Erica, and how they combine their businesses together (chocolate and books - what a perfect combination!). I am looking forward to this book.

I really like the idea of two best friends partnering in a book and chocolate shop. The title also got me, who can resist a chocolate truffle?
