CONFESSIONS OF A CONFECTIONER
After leaving her bad-news husband back in Texas, Lee McKinney moved up north to a quaint resort town. Now she keeps the books for her aunt’s luxury-chocolate shop. But Lee soon finds that Michigan winters can be murder....Lee and Aunt Nettie can’t believe their luck. A teddy bear promotion will have tourists flocking to Warner Pier, which could mean skyrocketing sales for TenHuis Chocolade. To help decorate the scrumptious store, their friend Gail, an antique dealer, lends them a collection of valuable chocolate molds. But after a burglary at the shop, Gail meets with a grisly fate - and the main suspect in her murder is Lee’s troubled teenage stepson. Lee sets out to clear his name, but awakening long-hibernating family secrets might be more than this daring crime solver can bear…
Narrator Teresa DeBerry's versatile voice goes from gentle to flashy, bringing out the individual accents of the characters in this mystery. Lee McKinney is starting over in Warner Pier, Michigan, helping her aunt at her shop, TenHuis Chocolate. When the local Chamber of Commerce plans a teddy bear promotion for tourists, they're certain that their chocolate teddy bears will fly out of the shop. But one night TenHuis Chocolate is robbed, and valuable antique chocolate molds go missing. Soon after, the antiques dealer who lent them the molds is murdered, and Lee's stepson is the main suspect. DeBerry deftly evokes Lee's intrepid charm as an unlikely investigator out to get to the bottom of things.
