LET'S GET COZY! THE CHOCOLATE CLOWN CORPSE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK!
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE CHOCOLATE
CLOWN CORPSE
A Chocoholic Mystery
BY JOANNA CARL

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Revenge is sweet for a killer on the loose—and it all started with the murder of Warner Pier’s most hated clown….

Everyone who knew the bozo wanted him dead. Odd, then, that a complete stranger was accused of bursting Moe Davidson’s balloons. But it’s been a month since the miserable shop owner of Clowning Around was killed, and everybody’s moving on, including Lee Woodyard. Her chocolate shop, TenHuis Chocolade, is next door to Moe’s shuttered tourist trap, and it’s giving her delicious ideas to expand. But over whose dead body?

Moe’s widow, Emma, and her two stepchildren list the property for sale, but when Lee tours the building, she finds Emma unconscious. Now Lee wonders whether Moe’s real killer is still at large and is taking care of unfinished business. Unfortunately, since the town is celebrating Clown Week, there are so many potential suspects in grease paint and floppy shoes it’s not even funny.

For Lee, protecting Emma, freeing an innocent man, and rolling out hundreds of her clown-themed chocolates is a pretty tall order. But so is staying alive long enough to find out which one of her neighbors is a killer in disguise.

Includes Tasty Chocolate Trivia!

I am a chocoholic so you had me by including "chocolate" in the title! Chocolate and a mystery are awesome. I am curious how a town celebrates Clown Week (that should be fun). Thank you for the giveaway.

Those poor clowns make such a perfect foil for murder mysteries. My neighbor loves this series and I've only read a couple that she has passed along. Thanks!

I am not much for eating chocolate (allergy) but I can read all about it. The story sounds interesting and why was the clown so hated anyway?
