Hayden Mundy Moore is an expert on everything chocolate, helping clients develop new products and revamp recipes until they're irresistible. But sometimes, a dash of murder finds its way into the mix. . .

Hayden Mundy Moore has bushwhacked through African jungles and haggled in exotic markets to find the finest cacao beans and the most flavorful blends. It's thrilling work but rarely dangerous--until a colleague turns up dead at the exclusive chocolate-themed Lemaître resort spa in San Francisco.

Adrienne Dowling's heart attack is blamed on an accidental overdose of the secret ingredient used in Lemaître Chocolates' new line. Hayden can't believe that conscientious Adrienne would make that mistake. And between chocolate body scrubs, cocoa mud baths, and a non-stop frenzy of chocolate-based treats, Hayden starts to suspect that she, not Adrienne, was the intended target. Finding a killer among the rival chocolatiers and potential suspects won't just be satisfying--it might save her life. . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Start to a New Series **I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.** What can I say other then I loved this book. I really liked the premise of this story, as a roving Confectioner, there is no small town feel. While I love that it can occasionally become stagnant. This option opens up an unlimited umber of possibilities. I love Hayden and Danny and Travis. I was a little worried that this was a set up for a love triangle that would span 15 books with no end. Thankfully that doesn't seem to be the case. I was pleasantly surprised by the recipes at the end and the chocolate knowledge interspersed through out the book. I was worried it would be like some other series that can come across as patronizing or seeming to just fill the word count quota with endless facts about whatever food the main character centers on. This wasn't the case. I am also finding that I like a younger heroine in my cozies who has her stuff together a little more and isn't constantly struggling to make ends meet. Its nice to change it up once in a while. I was also impressed with the mystery. I didn't know who it would be until just before the big reveal. All in all a great first book in what I am sure will be a successful series.
