Review: The Chocolate Bear Burglary

2nd in the "Chocoholic Mysteries"

Signet Mystery
 November 2002
 ISBN: 0-451-20747-5
Paperback Original
Mystery Guild Selection

When Aunt Nettie and Lee borrow an antique chocolate mold to use in a special promotion, they have no idea it will lead to burglary – and then to murder. The son of Lee’s former husband shows up in Warner Pier, and the 18-year-old boy seems determined to get in trouble. And Lee’s just as determined to keep him out of it. Family secrets keep peeping out, and Lee winds up running for her life.

 My Thoughts...
This mystery is set in Michigan, in a small resort town called Warner Pier.
This town has lots of tourism shops that have alot of visitors in the Summer months, but the shops need more business in the Winter Months.
So..they hold a promotion called "A Teddy Bear Getaway".
In the process of setting up this promotion, some borrowed antique chocolate molds are displayed in TenHuis Chocolates
 ( a chocolate store owned and managed by Lee and her Aunt Nettie )
This story revolves around the disappearance of one of these chocolate molds..

  The story had me guessing who "did it"...until the last few pages.

I enjoyed the description of the different kinds of chocolates that are made in TenHuis Chocolates, as a chocolate lover - these sound..so..good! 

** With lots of mentions of Candy and Chocolate Facts, this is one series
that you dont want to miss!

I give this Cozy Mystery 5 Stars!

 This is my 3rd cozy that I have read for
