The Chocolate Shark Shenanigans

Cover: 'The Chocolate Shark Shenanigans'

Staff Review: "The Chocolate Shark Shenanigans" by JoAnna Carl

★★★★

When a house in the neighborhood goes up for sale, Lee and Joe decide to team up with Lee’s aunt and uncle to flip the Bailey’s house for profit. A local developer, “Spud” Dirk has the same idea and swoops in with a higher offer on the house. Lee, who was not excited about flipping the house anyway, is happy to concentrate on managing the family business, TenHuis Chocolade. After a gun is discovered in the basement of the Bailey house, and Spud turns up dead in the carport, Lee knows there is a mystery to solve. The urge to solve the mystery has Lee digging her way through years of secrets to find a murderer.

If you are a fan of cozy mysteries, you will enjoy this new installment of the Chocoholic Mysteries. I enjoyed this book because of the friendly, truth-seeking characters and placement in small-town Michigan. As a bonus, the book contains chocolate trivia!

Audience: adults | Genre: fiction, mystery
