Death, Taxes, and a Chocolate Cannoli
Death, Taxes, and a Chocolate Cannoli - Diane Kelly

Not my favourite of the series, but not bad.  It had fewer mini-plots running concurrently, in fact, there was only one, and I missed them.  Kelly is really good at those multiple mini-plots and they keep the story moving and lively.  Without them, this one dragged a bit.

 

Tara is undercover here, working directly for the mobster's wife in her restaurant and the scenes with the wife were probably the best in the book.  I liked the dynamic between her and Tara.  Unfortunately, the rest of the storyline failed to catch my complete interest.  Tara didn't do much in the way of investigating at all and that's some of my favourite parts of past stories.

 

It was still a solid read and hopefully in the next book the author will have Tara back to juggling her usual caseload.

Chocolate Cakes
A Chocoholic's Chocolate Cake Cookbook: ... A Chocoholic's Chocolate Cake Cookbook: 30 Indulgent and Diverse Sweet & Delicious Chocolate Cake Recipes for any Chocoholic (secret or otherwise!) - Gordon Rock

I was able to get this book for free when it was being offered that way, it now costs $3.95. I was not as enthused about these recipes as many required Items that I had not heard or seen before. There were a few recipes that I felt we would try, but not as many as other recipe books.

This book of recipes starts with a history of chocolate and how it is healthy. This information was very interesting. The recipes were very interesting and many of them looked delicious and were marked to be made.

Did Gustavo Do What He is Accused of?
Chocolate Frosted Murder: A Donut Hole Cozy Mystery - Book 5 - Susan Gillard

While celebrating with 2 of her employees and their family, she is warned that their cousin, Gustavo, was found murdered in a park with a gun and drugs. The family doesn't believe this of their cousin and have asked Heather to work her magic and find out the truth of Gustavo's death. 

 

Heather with the help of her boyfriend giving her inside information finds out some information that helps solve the death of Gustavo. 

 

I have issues with this as there is the constant giving of information to a civilian by a police detective. I don't care that this civilian is his girlfriend. I know that it helps to move the story along. 

 

If you want a quick read, I recommend the story, but do suspend your disbelief or questioning to get through it.

Family Reunites
Charms and Chocolate Chips - Bailey Cates

Katie is continuing to learn about her magic and she has started volunteering at the Georgia Wild group. Her aunt Lucy says it is so that she can build up enough good. She finds another dead body and is drawn into the search for the killer and trying to create a relationship with her mother and Declan. 

 

Lucy and Katie's mother reunite and start to get along again and she learns what happened that caused her mother to not show her how to control her magic, she also helps her when she uses her "voice" to try and stop a fight Declan is having with an intruder with a knife. She helps to explain what she did and how it worked and what happened, to Declan who is not magical but still loves Katie. 

 

This is book #3 in the series and could be read as a stand alone, but it helps to have read the previous 2 books as it helps move the story along. The author does not use "it's a long story" when something from a previous book happens or needs to be brought up to move the story along. 

 

Very good story. This one did keep me guessing as to who did the murder, but it was nice to come to the end to finally figure out who did it.
