Business has been a little slow at the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency, but full-figured P.I. Savannah Reid doesn't have time to drown her sorrows in a box of double-chocolate truffles. She's too busy watching the Gourmet Network - and drooling over the sinfully scrumptious confections that Lady Eleanor ("The Queen of Chocolate") whips up on-air. But someone isn't sweet on the Queen's charming chatter - and wants her to hang up her oh-so-quaint apron - for good.... When Savannah hears that Lady Eleanor's been getting death threats, she jumps at the chance to be her round the clock bodyguard. It's a great chance to meet her idol in person - and maybe pick up some free chocolates, too. But her sweet dreams melt away when the minute she meets Lady Eleanor. The woman is as rotten as last year's Valentine candy - and stingy with the chocolates to boot!
But when the Queen of Chocolate bites into a chocolate and drops dead in the middle of her own live TV show, Savannah is horrified. After all, it was her job to protect Lady Eleanor - and now thousands of chocoholics know how horribly she failed. Talk about bad for business. Savannah has to figure out who's to blame for the Queen's untimely (and very ungraceful) demise....

Savannah just keeps getting better...
Another good cozy read. I like to read these books between particularly dark books. They're like a late night dessert. In this book, we get to know more of Savannah's dysfunctional family and appreciate her strength even further as she determinedly seeks justice for all. Not a traditional detective novel, most of the important discoveries are through lucky timing, yet it's still fun to watch her in action. I look forward to more of the series.

A very nicely plotted mystery
