Pirate Week is sweeping through Crystal Cove and keeping Jenna Hart and her bookstore, the Cookbook Nook, plenty busy. But she’s not too swamped to also host the local Chocolate Cookbook Club’s meeting—especially because the guest of honor is her friend, candy maker and cookbook author Coco Chastain.
Jenna whips up a delicious event amidst the rowdy festivities, but the mood is soon broken by robberies, simmering tempers, and a dead body—Coco’s editor, Alison. The suspects turn out to be more plentiful than a pot full of gold doubloons, so to prove Coco isn’t responsible for the dastardly deed, Jenna will have to stir up some clues and figure out who’s the real sticky-fingered killer…

Review of Fudging The Books
Review (4.5 Stars): I love this series!!! Jenna and the gang are back again, this time dealing with pirates, chocolate recipes and a cookbook editor that someone wants out the picture permanently. Fudging The Books is a fun, exciting cozy mystery with a first class heroine that you will instantly adore. The mystery is well-written and had me guessing until the very last page. I loved learning about the different chocolate recipes and every time they mentioned chocolate, my mouth watered thinking about all these culinary delights. This is a series that can’t be missed and I’m looking forward to the next book that Ms. Wood Gerber puts out next.
I’m excited to give away a copy of Fudging The Books. This giveaway is for US Residents only. To be entered in the drawing by August 10th, please leave me a comment below:
