    Second book in series (and worse than the first)

    Dangerously Dark by Colette London is the second book in A Chocolate Whisperer Mystery series. Hayden Mundy Moore is a freelance chocolate expert. She helps companies improve their products. Thanks to an inheritance, Hayden can pick only jobs that appeal to her. Hayden is heading to Portland, Oregon for an engagement party weekend for an old, college friend, Carissa. Hayden arrives in Portland and goes to Cartorama where Carissa has a cart called Churn PDX. Every food cart specializes in chocolate. Carissa opens her food cart and they find the dead body of her fiancé, Declan Murphy. The police declare Declan’s death an accident. Hayden does not believe it is an accident and decides to poke around a little. She is still running on a high from solving the mystery at her last assignment. Carissa (who does not seem very upset over her fiancé’s death) also asks Hayden to take over Declan’s Chocolate After Dark tour. It is already been scheduled and publicized (I think Carissa has an ulterior motive). Hayden agrees to run the tour since it will give her more time to poke around. Her friend and security expert, Danny Jamieson shows up to help out (and try and convince Hayden to leave Portland). Will Hayden find out that Declan was killed? Who would want to kill him and why? I found Dangerously Dark to be a silly novel with a very simple mystery. Hayden does not really solve the mystery. They seem to solve themselves. Hayden is more focused on guys (especially Travis, her finance manager) than the mystery. I have no idea why she is friends with Carissa who was more concerned over making connections than the death of her fiancé. I give Dangerously Dark 2.75 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of Dangerously Dark from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Chocolate and Crime in Portland Oregon

    I love Chocolate and Culinary Cozy Mysteries but I did not love this one. There are quite a few things wrong with the book. I was immediately put off on this book when the author talked more about the previous book and mystery than the current one. Series writers should realize that not everyone reads the books in order. I have the first book but I am afraid it will go on my when I have nothing else to read pile. I did not care for the main character. She was determined to prove a murder. Normally when a character declares I know it was a murder and who did it I believe them. This character was wrong more often than right. I did not believe that the two main characters were best friends. I was not sure if they even liked each other. The author does do a good job of describing the Portland, Oregon Setting. There is a lot of chocolate information and even some recipes in the back. Unfortunately this is cannot make up for a poor story and unlikable characters. I would recommend skipping this one. I received a copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review

    Chocolate and Mystery what a combination

    I received a copy of the eBook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Colette London’s novel Dangerously Dark is the second book in the series but can certainly be read as a stand-alone. The author has combined chocolate and mystery—what a creative combination. Hayden Mundy Moore, a chocolate whisperer cannot help be drawn into solving an unexplained death. Hayden thought she was simply visiting Portland for her friend’s engagement party. Life’s journey is never boring for Hayden. This character driven story has many unexpected twists and turns. The many interesting layers add depth to this well written read. Readers will look forward to reading the sequel. The bonus recipes at the end—what a delicious treat.
