First 3 books in the Cocoa Narel Chocolate Shop Mysteries series
Sense of humor required!
A lighthearted, fun cozy mystery series
Book 1. Sweet Revenge
Narel Myers was given the ironic name Cocoa Narel by the cruel popular kids in high school, as she was far from elegant and was obsessed with chocolate. The truth of the matter was that her love of eating chocolate had caused her to become excessively overweight. Some years later, a car wreck leads to her undergoing extensive plastic surgery on her face and body. Now that she is medically unable to gain weight, she decides to indulge her love for chocolate by opening a designer chocolate shop.
When people who bullied her at high school are murdered one by one, she becomes the prime suspect. Will she be able to prove her innocence when the police think she’s out for revenge? Will Carl, her best friend, stop flirting with the police long enough to help her find the real killer?
Book 2. The Sugar Hit
Narel is excited about the grand opening night of her Cocoa Narel’s Designer Chocolate Shop, but her happiness turns to dismay when a police officer is murdered right in the middle of proceedings. The detectives suspect Narel and tell her that the victim had her under surveillance. But why?
How can Narel’s mean cat help this time? Will Narel end up behind bars? And who is the mysterious woman in Borage’s life?
Book 3. Murder Sweetly Served
When an advertising executive dies after taking a bite of cake at his retirement party, caterer Narel is at once the detectives’ main suspect. Though Narel is known for her killer baking, it’s usually the chocolatey goodness that has her guests drooling.
Can Mongrel, Narel’s cranky cat, save Narel from the clutches of the police?
