"Between the pages of this book lies the secret to the best-tasting chocolate in all the world. I promise, your taste buds will tingle. Your palette will sing! Oh no, have I accidentally tempted you to read this book? I will warn you, however, the most delicious things are never good for you...and this story is particularly scrumptious!"

In this tooth-rotting adventure, Cass's mom has been kidnapped by the evil dessert chef and chocolatier, Señor Hugo! The ransom...the legendary tuning fork. Can Cass and Max-Ernest find the magical instrument before it's too late? Will they discover the evil secret ingredient to Señor Hugo's chocolate success?

If you're tempted, take a taste, but just remember...this book is not good for you.

Good...Cass's voice irritating.

I have read this book before in print, and was excited to try out the audio book with it, particularly when I found it was read by a full cast. I enjoyed most things of it, the plot was good, and the full cast was a treat. However, Cass's voice constantly grated on my nerves! Considering Cass is the main character, this quickly got annoying. She was forever speaking in a "whatever" teenage, disrespectful voice to everyone. This is not how I pictured my Cass, and it made her seem more catty than she actually is.

Overall, and excellent audiobook. The man voicing Pseudonymous Bosch was fantastic for a narrator, and it did not disappoint completely. If Cass had been voiced by a different person, this book would have been fantastic.

Good job, just next time, please pick someone else!

I couldn't even finish this

Too much jumping around, loose ends, dumb plot twists. I couldn't even finish this - not for me.
