Teaser Tuesday 323: Death is Like a Box of Chocolates

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week’s teaser comes from Death is Like a Box of Chocolates by a new-to-me author, Kathy Aarons, which I read in July.

I don't know what clued me in that the car coming up behind me was a problem. It slowed down as it rounded the corner, like drivers always did when surprised by a runner in the road.

But then I heard the driver gun the engine.

Series: Chocolate Covered mystery #1

Whether it's to satisfy a craving for chocolate or pick up the hottest new bestseller, the locals in charming West Riverdale, Maryland, are heading to Chocolates and Chapters, where everything sold is to die for . . .

Best friends Michelle Serrano and Erica Russell are celebrating the sweet rewards of their combined bookstore and chocolate shop by hosting the Great Fudge Cook-off during the town's Memorial Day weekend Arts Festival. But success turns bittersweet when Main Street’s portrait photographer is found dead in their store, poisoned by Michelle's signature truffles.

As suspicion mounts against Michelle, her sales begin to crumble and her career seems whipped. With Erica by her side, Michelle must pick through an assortment of suspects before the future of their dream store melts away . . .


Includes Scrumptious Chocolate-Making Recipes!

Nice tease, sounds like a little vehicular mischief is on the way. :) And a bookstore/ chocolate shop? How awesome would that be!

Gunning the engine would be a pretty clear clue.
