Book Beginning: The Chocolate Falcon Fraud by JoAnna Carl

The Chocolate Falcon Fraud: A Chocoholic Mystery by JoAnna Carl, November 3, 2016, NAL
After reading the first paragraph, I decided I wanted to read more.....


Book beginning, Chapter 1

When Jeff Godfrey came in the door of TenHuis Chocolade, I didn't know if I should shake his hand, kiss him, or call the cops. 

Page 56:
 Joe and I looked at each other and shrugged. I whispered, "This place is full of strange people."

Book description:

... Lee Woodyard is a chocolatier whose love of old crime films plunges her into a real-life murder where the motives aren’t so black and white…What Lee isn’t prepared for is a face from the past: Jeff Godfrey, her former stepson.

This sounds interesting, I like the teasers. Well chosen.

Today I'm featuring The Underachieving Ovary by JT Lawrence.
