Teenaged Jewish sisters Sam and Sophie Shattenberg change their identities as they flee from New York to a small town in Indiana and open a detective agency. The Chocolate Lover is full of Jewish flavor, but the focus is on solving of mysteries. Don't miss the rest of the Missing Persons series: The Rose Queen, The Venetian Policeman, and The Unsuspecting Gourmet. ( )

Sam and Sophie are hiding out in Venice Indiana. They have to deal with their past and their future and try to keep out of trouble for five years until the statute of limitations on their grand larceny runs out.

WHen Sophie sees an ad for a lecture by Leo Shattenberg, their original surname, she's intrigued. They had an uncle Leo who was supposed lost during the Holocaust, so they try to find out, without revealing themselves. He's still looking for a lost love, the two sisters get involved.

I like how the issues with having to hide themselves and their religion came into the story. I like this series, the two sisters are interesting and unusual. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142500429, Mass Market Paperback)

Sophie and Sam Shattenberg are two Jewish sisters from Queens, New York. Both love knishes and kosher pickles. Both have said "I’m wawkin’ here!" to cab drivers—and meant it. When the unthinkable happens and their father dies, the girls are devastated. Desperate to get away from their greedy stepmother, they withdraw their father’s money from the bank, pick up fake IDs, and hit the road. All is well until their car breaks down outside of Venice, Indiana, a town so isolated that the mechanic tells them, "You could get lost here forever." Which is exactly what they decide to do....

When Sophie starts school, she notices a flyer for a lecture featuring Professor Leo Shattenberg. Could this be their grandfather’s missing cousin, believed to be dead since World War II? At the lecture, Sam and Sophie discover that Professor Shattenberg has a missing person of his own—a childhood sweetheart who, like him, had a love of chocolate. Seeing their chance, the girls offer to help the professor find his missing sweetheart—all the time running their own investigation of him.
