Death by Chocolate by Carol Lee

death by chocolateblurb from goodreads.com. please scroll down for my review

Things are brilliant for baker and recently divorced Myra Bailey. Living the typical life in her sleepy little town of Fish Creek Falls she’s finally opened up her dream coffee shop bakery, Dessert First. She is excited things are going so well… until she stumbles over the body of Barbara the owner of the only other bakery in town.

Suddenly Myra finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation (her chocolate cake was found at the scene of the crime!) headed up by her hunky neighbor Detective David Bentley. With the help of her best friend Lizzie, together they are armed with their smart phones and their natural wits, Myra decides to take it upon herself to find the real murderer in order to clear her name and drive customers back to her bakery.

As things heat up on the murder trail, in the kitchen and between Myra and the Detective, it’s a race against time to put the real murderer behind bars and get back to baking.

My Review.

This is a very short book, I had no idea when I first picked it up on my kindle, I only realized when I checked my progress and saw I had already got on in it quicker than normal, therefore I finished it in one sitting.

This is a quick read, easy with nothing gripping or thrilling, hence the cozy mystery part. But the characters needed more development, (this way it could have been a little longer) and there wasn´t much of a mystery really, I had it all figured out, but then again, I was looking for exactly this style of book to take my mind off things at the time so it wasn´t as bad as it could have been. There were a few moments in the story line that weren´t properly explained.
