THE CHOCOLATE JEWEL CASE by JoAnna Carl
Join Mystery Guild for a great deal on THE CHOCOLATE JEWEL CASE
Newly married chocolatier Lee McKinney and boat builder Joe Woodyard have been looking forward to the first summer of their married life as a romantic idyll. So they’re not thrilled when a horde of house guests decends upon them—two teen-aged girls, an ex-con, a tough guy who claims to be a bird watcher, and Joe’s much-married aunt. Plus, when a major heat wave hits, and the air-conditioning goes on the blink, it’s a potential disaster for Lee’s shop, TenHuis Chocolade, and its newest offering: chocolate jewels.
But soon the usually peaceful town of Warner Pier has its very own jewel heist—real gems, not chocolate ones—and a mysterious dead man is found floating in Lake Michigan. Lee can’t help but wonder if the crimes are related. She decides that if she digs up enough dirt, she’ll hit the mother lode—if she doesn’t get buried herself!
