Publisher's Summary

Lady Arianna, now the Countess of Saybrook, is settling into married life with her new husband. To celebrate his birthday, she finds the perfect gift: a rare volume of botanical engravings on Theobroma cacao - or chocolate - in an exclusive bookshop. But she is forced to fight off a stranger who tries to steal it way from her.

Arianna forgets about the strange incident - until she and her husband attend an important government party on a country estate, where her assailant reappears and turns out to be a Russian diplomat. Events grow more ominous when Arianna discovers sensitive government documents hidden in the book's binding - documents that suggest someone she and Saybrook hold dear is a traitor to King and country.

Murder. Treason. Money. Power. Once again, Arianna and Saybrook are drawn into a shadowy world of international intrigue. To unmask the real villain, they journey to the Peace Congress in Vienna, where amid the seductive pomp and pageantry of Europe's royalty, they must root out a cunning conspiracy - armed only with their wits and their expertise in chocolate....

love the narration

The story was very suspenseful and the ending was unexpected. I enjoyed the plot immensely.

Book could be better with a different narrator

This narrator whispered as though she was imparting a secret and lifted her voice at every sentence. It was quite annoying.

Book is pretty good but that narration....

I think the book is decent for this kind of book, but the reader drives me nuts. This is the second in the series and there is a very strange cadence, lack of inflection and then inflection at the weirdest points. Very odd.
