Death of a Chocoholic Audiobook

Death of a Chocoholic

Fed up with dating after a disastrous setup, the only thing Hayley wants to snuggle up to is a box of made-to-order chocolates from plus-sized, plus-mouthed chocolatier Bessie Winthrop. But when Bessie is found dead in her kitchen, only Hayley suspects that Bessie's "heart attack" might actually be a candy-coated murder. Turns out Bessie had more enemies than a boxful of chocolates, each one a suspicious flavor. It's sticky business juggling a job, two teenagers and finding a killer, but it's better than letting a killer find Hayley first…

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better story, much better performance needed...every male character sounded the same with terrible accent!


    What could Lee Hollis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was very boring, so I don't know what could have made it better!


    How could the performance have been better?

    All male characters sounded the same & had unauthentic accents of some type!


    Any additional comments?

    "A good cozy series, but..."

    I've been an avid listener of this series & I enjoy it a lot because it's a cozy mystery but it also has separate side stories included in it from Haley's newspaper column. I enjoy the break from the main plot to hear a story & get a recipe or two! It's a fun little combo. If you're like me and enjoy this format I recommend the "Books by the bay" mysteries, because that too has similar side stories inserted in.

    I only have one qualm with this installment. I wish this book would just make the love interest slightly more realistic. A new handsome eligible bachelor came to town & every woman wants him. Of course Haley meets him once, breaks into his office, accuses him of murder & yet he still falls for her... It's just written hastily as if the author needed a new love interest when Lex left town & so she threw a new guy in. However I'm interested to see how the ending picks up in the next book as it was left with a bit of a "cliffhanger." Overall a good listen!

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Gross"

    The whole idea of chocolates with cat hair grosses me out. Story was OK. A good addition to the series.
