Description:

Domestic Diva Sophie Winston is in charge of the sweetest event in Old Town this summer. Amore Chocolates is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary with a chocolate tasting at the mansion of the company’s CEO, Joe Merano—and Sophie is running the show. With cookies, candy, and five kinds of chocolate cake, it’s a chocolate lover’s dream! But when Joe goes missing, the celebration becomes bittersweet. And when Sophie discovers the body of a competing chocolatier in the guesthouse, the event turns downright deadly.

As if that wasn’t enough, Sophie’s been receiving daily boxes of sweet treats. After ruling out her new beau and her exes, Sophie wonders if someone’s trying to send her a message—and if she’s next on a chocoholic’s hit list…

My Thoughts:

This book brings us back to Old Town for a summer anniversary of Amore Chocolates as they celebrate 50 years and this anniversary has no shortage of adventures.  In this book Sophie is helping Joe Merano and his family with their anniversary.  When not long into the festivities Joe goes missing and everyone wonders where Joe is and Sophie is hired to find the missing CEO of Amore Chocolates!

Natasha is up to her tricks trying to find something she is good at and takes it upon herself to enter into the world of chocolates.  In her rush to glory she injures her boyfriends Mars in the process which causes him to leave Natasha and go home with Sophie.  Will Natasha find a way to repair her relationship with Mars or are they doomed for breakup?

In this book we see again Nina, Bernie, Mars, Natasha and all their furry friends as we see what everyone is up to while getting an inside look to the world of chocolates and chocolate companies.  We also got to see various men of Sophie's life between her ex-husband Mars, her ex-boyfriend Wolf, and her current flame Alex.  Alex seems to not be too thrilled with the men in Sophie's life and tries to make sense of Sophie's life and where he fits into it.

This book has everything one has come to love with the Domestic Diva series.  Each chapter with cooking advice kind of like a Dear Abby whether the letter be intended to Sophie or Natasha and we can see the various advices they offer.  I have been such a huge Domestic fan since I read the first one in the series!  Keep up the good work Ms. Davis you have won a place in many cozy hearts!
