Baker Corinna Chapman is happy with her life. Jason, the former addict she rescued from her alleyway,, is shaping into a good apprentice. And her beautiful Israeli lover, Daniel, though away for the last couple of weeks, is as enchanting as ever.|
Corinna has no intention of doing any more investigative work. At least until she bites into what should have been a lovely violet cream gourmet chocolate and instead finds a chili-filled catastrophe.
Corinna doesn’t want to see Juliet and Vivienne Lefebvre’s chocolate shop, Heavenly Pleasures, shut down. And quite frankly, it is just a crime to ruin those gorgeous chocolate confections. Is this tampering part of an elaborate and horrible joke, or is it a warning that worse may yet happen?
In the meantime, Daniel has returned bruised and battered from an encounter with a so-called messiah. Is the messiah somehow involved in this chocolate crime? And just who is the mysterious man who has moved into the upper apartment?
