"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

The Chocolate Pirate Plot by JoAnna Carl

Obsidian Mystery
A Division of Penguin Publishing
10th Book in The Chocoholic Mystery Series
Hardcover Release October 5, 2010

Pirates in Warner Pier, well of course!  Since a certain pirate movie became a huge success, Young Blackbeard, (what movie did you think I meant?) pirates are showing up everywhere.  They even leaped aboard Joe and Lee's antique powerboat while they were out for a little cruise.  The buccaneers hopped about doing a little jig, played a little music and performed a few acrobatics and then dove into the water and disappeared.  

The pirates visited a few more boats and great fun was had by all.  It was the "Summer of the Warner Pier Pirates", heck the local playhouse was even gearing up to perform the Pirates of Penzance.  Everything was swimming along nicely until a body was found floating in Lake Michigan with a Jolly Roger tattoo, then the fun quickly came to a halt.  Lee decides to plunge herself into the investigation to find out exactly what these swashbucklers are up to.

I love this series and since Pirates are our high school mascot, I loved it even more.  I am also a true CHOCOHOLIC!!! so this book is definitely perfect for me!! These stories are fast paced so be ready for some wild page turning fun with a chocolate twist.  JoAnna Carl is a master storyteller when it comes to the cozy genre.  By this 10th installment I feel like part of the TenHuis family, and love each and every predicament this family gets itself dipped into, no matter if it is milk chocolate or the deepest darkest chocolate, you always have to be ready for the surprise gooey center.  Reading these books is a truly tasty morsel with zero calories.
