These Chocoholic books aren't made of the best stuff. JoAnna Carl isn't shy from repeating herself. Indeed, many of her books have interchangeable sections. But you know what, they make for a great reading experience, especially when one is looking for one. Like most of her villains, the current one lacked dimension. The most important aspect of this book is the way characters are introduced and the way they are used or put away in the box. That was the single departure from previous books. I liked the uncluttered Warner Pier in this book. Waste not, want not! Reading the Chocoholic books makes one want to live there. I'm sure that's true for most people who've read these books. Every country should have a Warner Pier of their own. ( )

When it turns out a member of Warner Pier’s library board has been living on borrowed time, Lee is determined to discover who wrote the victim’s final chapter…

Running TenHuis Chocolade keeps Lee McKinney Woodyard busy enough, but now she’s been offered two different positions in the town of Warner Pier—one on the tourism committee and another on the library board. To decide between the two, she goes to Warner Pier’s historic library to check out the board’s monthly meeting.

As usual, rumors are flying through the small town—this time, they’re about the rugged new library director, Henry “Butch” Cassidy, and the changes he allegedly plans to make. Butch is indeed attractive—but Lee doesn’t get a chance to find out about his proposed changes. A few minutes into the meeting, the discussion is interrupted by the terrified screams of the library clerk.

She has discovered the lifeless body of Abigail VanRoostock, a prim and proper retiring member of the board, crumpled in a heap at the bottom of the basement stairs. Suddenly, everyone in attendance, including Lee, is suspected in her murder. And as Lee finds out, they’ve all got something to hide…
