The Chocolate Falcon Fraud is the fifteenth book in the delicious
a Chocoholic Mystery series.

The residents of Warner Pier are preparing for the start of Tough Guns and Private Eyes Film Festival with a special showing of The Maltese Falcon. As Lee is putting the final touches on some miniature Falcon chocolates her step-son from a previous marriage, Jeff, appears at the TenHuis candy shop. He is unclear as to why he is in Warner Pier, other to say he doing some research and wanted to attend the festival. When Jeff fails to make the supper he had arranged with Lee, Joe, her aunt, and step-uncle, they figure he had met a girl and will show up soon. But when he is still missing the next morning a search is begun and he is found near his wrecked car. It is soon learned that there is the possibility of another Maltese Falcon might be in existence. Then when a man comes to the door of Lee and Joe’s home and collapses dead on their porch and the package that he was carrying disappears, Lee figures that Jeff’s injuries and the man’s death are all somehow related to the existence of this alleged Maltese Falcon.

Once again Carl provides the reader with a well-plotted story, interesting characters and a helping of chocolate trivia.

Looking forward to the next exciting story in this series, The Chocolate Bunny Brouhaha. ( )

Familiar friends and extended families liven up Warner Pier with a film festival highlighting The Maltese Falcon. Lee McKinney and her aunt Nettie continue their prominent roles in tracking clues and solving crimes. At the culinary center are chocolate falcons and “Chocolate Chat” recipes. Unfortunately, this tale lacked depth and was very predictable. A few convenient but not very believable twists left this reader disappointed. In a way, it was like being at a family reunion, familiar places and people, but too many incomplete and interrupted conversations to hear the full story. ( )

From the bestselling author of The Chocolate Clown Corpse, it’s murder, my sweet, for a chocolatier whose love of old crime films plunges her into a real-life murder where the motives aren’t so black and white…
 
The Warner Pier tourism board is kicking off its Tough Guys and Private Eyes film festival with The Maltese Falcon, and Lee Woodyard and her Aunt Nettie are preparing a delicious chocolate noir tie-in at TenHuis Chocolade. What Lee isn’t prepared for is a face from the past: Jeff Godfrey, her former stepson. The last time Jeff showed up in town, he wound up being accused of murder. Now he says he’s only in Warner Pier to see Bogart on the big screen. Honest.
 
Jeff may now be a college grad, but that doesn’t mean he’s any less naïve than the kid Lee had to bail out of trouble earlier. There are all those strange phone calls, a girlfriend who’s secretly on Jeff’s tail, and a pack of suspicious-sounding acquaintances right out of Dashiell Hammett. Then Jeff goes missing, the Falcon theme is haunting everyone, and a body falls at Lee’s feet when she opens the front door – just like in the movie.
 
Now Lee is under deadline to rewrite the ending of a cunning killer’s increasingly convincing murder plot…
 
Includes Tasty Chocolate Trivia!
