**FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK!**

*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!**

**Pseudonym: Eve K. Sandstrom.**

**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.**

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.

I have only read one other book in this series, so much is new! Who would want to kill a clown? Even a creepy clown...

I found interesting the path Joanna Carl took to write mystery, starting with reading her first non-picture book of Nancy Drew.

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?
