A Novella by

 
 
Everyone in Valley Springs knows that the brownies at Story Tree are to die for, so why are they so surprised when it turns out to be true?

Clary St. James is content with her life in Valley Springs and her flourishing bookstore. She's content, not bored. And if she keeps repeating that to herself, one day, it might just be true.

Everything changes one snowy afternoon, when a handsome stranger takes up residence next door. Tall, dark, handsome, and arrogant, he rolls into town like he owns the place. Before she can complain too much, Valley Springs is rocked by an unexpected murder of a local man.

All eyes turn to Clary's bookstore cafe, when it's revealed that lethal brownies were the murder weapon. The once-revered brownies become objects of suspicion, and Clary is forced to defend her talented chef and friend Marie.

It's a race against the clock as the evidence keeps mounting and secrets come to light. Death by chocolate was supposed to be a marketing scheme, not a promise. Will Clary find the truth? Is her faith in her chef misplaced?

This is the first book in the Story Tree Cozy Mystery series, with a book-loving amateur sleuth, set in a picturesque town with sassy characters!
