Once Upon A Book – Charlee Rae's Book Reviews

"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"

Death by Chocolate (A Dessert First Cozy Mystery #1) by Carol Lee


I rated this book 3 out of 5 stars

Myra Bailey lives in the little town of Fish Creek Falls. She opened a bakery there after divorcing her husband and deciding city life wasn’t for her. Things are going well. That is until the owner of the only other bakery in town is found dead. Myra suddenly finds herself as suspect #1….and how was the owner murdered? It’s a case of death by chocolate.

I got this free on my Nook. Yay books! It’s cute but predictable. Myra is a likable character and I enjoyed the setting. The only thing that really annoyed me was the constant use of a pet name by her soon to be boyfriend. It made me wonder if the reason he kept using it is because he couldn’t remember her name. The writing was a bit on the amateurish side and it wasn’t hard to figure out the killer but all in all it wasn’t a bad little story and definitely perfect if you are looking for something short and sweet.

Total pages: 76, Nook edition
