And then a murder changes everything. The whole point of Jessie’s move was to enjoy a quiet, small town life. She knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t help it. One of her new friends is the prime suspect and nobody else seems interested in helping her. Can Jessie save her friend and avoid putting herself in danger in the process?

Death by chocolate, but it’s the wrong person. Meant for the ex-Mafia man or his bride, a food critic?

Could it have been an act of jealousy by Al De Duco’s ex-girlfriend, Kitten Knight, or an act of revenge by Mario Carlucci, a long-time enemy of his from Al’s days with the Mafia in Chicago?

Or was the intended victim Al’s wife of two weeks, Cassie, the very popular food critic who writes the Food Spy column for The Seattle Times? But who would want to murder Cassie? Maybe it was Myles, the food critic she was filling in for at the Times and who was jealous of her success. Then there’s the Gourmand’s Guide to Good Eats food blogger, Jessica, who’d always hated Cassie. Or even the owner of Frogities Restaurant, Jules, who would love to see the bad publicity resulting from a murder at Le Bijou Bistro.

When she’s not baking her delectable pastries Samantha Sweet breaks into houses for a living, and that almost certainly leads to trouble. When she finds an unmarked grave on a property in a remote spot in Taos County, New Mexico, Sam calls in the authorities. A small mural painted inside a closet in the abandoned house provides clues and Sam is caught up in an investigation alongside the good-looking Deputy Beau Cardwell. A fortune in artwork, a bogus will, and a wooden box that seems to give Sam powers she never dreamed she possessed–it all adds up to a dynamic paranormal romantic mystery.

Then, there is all that chocolate! Sam’s real goal in life is to use her elegant baking skills to open her own pastry shop, Sweet’s Sweets. She’s gaining quite the reputation as a baker with a magical touch, but a few obstacles stand in her way. Her grown daughter shows up on her doorstep–jobless and homeless; her bank account is at an all-time low; and trying to work from the tiny cramped kitchen in her home is becoming impossible.

Somehow, Sam copes and she finds that her dreams might just have a chance of coming true.
