Felicity Koerber has had a rough year. She's moving back to Galveston Island and opening a bean to bar chocolate factory, fulfilling a dream she and her late husband, Kevin, had shared. Craft chocolate means a chance to travel the world, meeting with farmers and bringing back beans she can turn into little blocks of happiness, right close to home and family.

She thinks trouble has walked into her carefully re-built world when puddle-jump pilot Logan Hanlon shows up at her grand opening to order custom chocolates. Then one of her employees drops dead at the party, and Felicity's one-who-got-away ex-boyfriend - who's now a cop - thinks Felicity is a suspect. As the murder victim's life becomes more and more of a mystery, Felicity realizes that if she's going to clear her name in time to save her business, she might need Logan's help. Though she's not sure if she's ready to let anyone into her life - even if it is to protect her from being the killer's next victim. For Felicity, Galveston is all about history, and a love-hate relationship with the ocean, which keeps threatening to deliver another hurricane - right into the middle of her investigation. Can she figure it out before all the clues get washed away?

 Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate comes together in this solid start to a new cozy series. We meet Felicity as she is getting ready for the grand opening of her new store that centers on bean to bar chocolate. The research involved in writing this goodness shows through as the process is explained making the reader drool about each new kind. Things go slightly awry on the big day when one of her employees collapses and dies. Unfortunately Felicity is the main suspect as she just had a disagreement with her. Set on an island the investigation covers most of the area as she goes back and forth asking questions. When danger pops up its head she hires a bodyguard to keep her safe. Full of a mix of characters, sweet chocolate, and lots of clues we get a mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end making for a fun read. I highly recommend it so cozy and chocolate lovers alike. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
