Once again, this newest installment, the 7th, in the Death by Chocolate mystery series does not disappoint.

This one is more action-packed, more intense, with more boating and less baking, but still enjoyable.

As usual, a terrific plot with some great characters, particularly Jake and Ellie, and now, the new sheriff in their Maine town.

Recommended for mystery fans!!

Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree and her best friend Ellie White are co-owners of The Chocolate Moose, a chocolate-themed bakeshop in Eastport, Maine. As the 4th of July approaches, they find themselves in a baking frenzy, committed to providing a dozen chocolate cherry cheesecakes for an auction that will fund Eastport's fireworks extravaganza. Despite the looming threat of Hurricane Amber, the women persevere. However, Jake and Ellie soon discover that the hurricane is not the only danger they need to face for a Happy 4th.

This cozy mystery has a large cast of characters, each adding their unique flavor to the narrative. Jake and Ellie are adept at juggling multiple tasks. Their shop is a hub of activity, with a steady stream of customers who can't resist their delectable chocolate creations.

Intended as a spin-off of the author's "Home Repair is Homicide" series, I enjoyed its introduction to a culinary series that can stand on its own. The narrative is a chocoholic's dream, filled with tantalizing descriptions that will leave you craving more. Remarkably, there was no indulgence in chocolate and/or cheesecake while reading this cozy mystery.

The scrumptious cheesecake that the reader dreams of throughout the reading of this mystery can be created in your kitchen with the "Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake" recipe at the end of the story.

She used to work for the mob but now she works in the family bakery and lives with her husband, parents, kids, grands, and dogs in an elderly house that is very much straining at the seams. An island neighbor needs help to find a missing husband who might be lost at sea, so Jake (Jacobia) and Ellie
begin an investigation that leads to missing treasure, shark attack, border problems, and even worse!
It kept my nose to the page (figuratively) right to the twisty end!
I requested and received a free temporary EARC from Kensington Books, Kensington Cozies via NetGalley. Thank you!
