LET'S GET COZY! BEHIND CHOCOLATE BARS: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
BEHIND CHOCOLATE BARS
A Chocolate Covered Mystery
BY KATHY AARONS

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The national bestselling author of Truffled to Death returns with a mystery full of tricks and treats…

DOUBLE, DOUBLE-BOIL, AND TROUBLE…

Best friends and business partners Michelle and Erica have a monstrous to-do list as they prepare for the annual West Riverdale Halloween Festival. Their shop, Chocolates and Chapters, will have a booth at the event, where Michelle will serve spooky delights while Erica displays an assortment of spine-chilling books. Thank goodness the teenagers from Erica’s comic-book club are chipping in to help. But one of their volunteers winds up in trouble after a woman’s body is found in an abandoned house—with the teen’s superhero key ring close by.

The teen swears he didn’t do it, but he’s obviously hiding something—leaving Michelle and Erica with a witch’s cauldron of questions. Soon they discover that the dead woman was tricking a whole bunch of people out of more than just treats. Now these two friends must go door-to-door if they hope to unmask a killer…

Includes Scrumptious Chocolate-Making Recipes!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kathy Aarons is the author of the Death is Like a Box of Chocolates 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.

Her site didn't really give me much more info about her, since I read most in your post. There is info about bookstores that carry her books.
