{I've Been Reading} Chocolate a la Murder

Chocolate a la Murder by Kirsten Weiss

The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum series just keeps getting better and better. In the first book, Maddie was tricked into buying the paranormal museum. Since then, she's fully embraced her role as a local businesswoman and is doing everything she can to make the popular attraction grow. Book three had haunted cowbells. This time it's a haunted molillino, an  antique wooden chocolate whisk that supposedly rattles when someone tells a lie in its presence. The museum is set up for Wine and Chocolate Days, complete with a psychic who reads the drippings left in  hot chocolate mugs.

When Maddie visits a local chocolate shop to pick up her order and finds one of the owners lying dead in a pool of his own chocolate, she finds herself plunged into another murder investigation. (I've got to admit, that was one of the creepiest murder scenes I've come across in years of reading cozy mysteries.) The molillino rattles and serves its purpose, but the story behind it is less interesting than some of the other exhbits in past books. The murder mystery kept me entertained and guessing until the end. It's a fun series that I highly recommend.
