Join Penn and Stella on their latest adventure!
There's a legend in the Sea Islands that before a hurricane hits the Gray Lady can be seen walking down the beach warning of doom. Penn doesn’t believe in such silly stories, but she does believe weather forecasters. A powerful hurricane is heading their way. Everyone on the island of Camellia Beach is busy boarding up windows and securing valuables to upper levels of buildings. Joe Davies, a local treasure hunter with an unquenchable sweet tooth, claims to have seen the Gray Lady walking toward him just that morning and is terrified for his life.
After the storm passes everyone returns to survey the damage. As Penn walks her little dog Stella on the beach, she finds Joe Davies’ body washed up onshore. Not only that, it looks as if an exploding transformer caused Joe’s seaside shack to burn to the ground. Did the Gray Lady claim another victim? Many on the island believe that is exactly what happened.
Penn is sure there’s another explanation. She follows the clues and hints of lost gold to discover that the truth behind the treasure hunter’s death is as much of a maze as the boating channels winding their way through the local marshes.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Chocolate, great characters, a cute dog, and a mystery combine into one fantastic read in this new installment to this great series. Penn is gearing up for her first hurricane since moving to the island. As if that is not enough to deal with when she comes back adorable Stella finds a body buried in the sand. Once identified the secrets just start coming as she learns more and more about him. Makes for a fun surprising read as it all plays out mixed in between chocolatey goodness that will make you drool. A must read for cozy fans and chocolate lovers. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
