Rick is dead. Murdered by a bomb that blew up his car in his own driveway.
Lindsay is his sole heir. Or is she? She’s never met any of Rick’s family. Though he told her various conflicting stories about them, she came to believe they didn’t exist, that Rick was an alien stranded here when the mother ship left without him. But then Rick’s mother and two brothers show up followed by a woman who claims to be his ex-wife and a boy she claims is Rick’s son. Everyone except Lindsay wants to inherit Rick’s estate. What’s so valuable that someone killed for it and is ready to kill again?
Come for the Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars, stay for the murder, mayhem and fun!
“The Great Chocolate Scam”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Barb Scott
I recently discovered Sally Berneathy’s Death by Chocolate Series. The Great Chocolate Scam is the third book in the series and is every bit as good as the earlier books in the series. I’m sure you could read this mystery as a stand-alone book, but do yourself a favor and read all three in order. By the time I got to book 3, the characters (heroine Lindsay, the hardworking friend and business partner Paula, the other neighbor with secrets of his own Fred) felt like old friends. This book, like the others in the series, is an easy read with plenty of action and lots of humor. A plus, for chocolate lovers who like to bake, are the recipes included at the end! I do have to admit that I went to lunch today and ordered a hot fudge brownie sundae for dessert!
About the Author
I grew up in a small rural town in Oklahoma where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be due to the fact that everybody in my family has a singing voice like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories–ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It’s hard to make listeners sit still for the length of a book! Like my family’s tales, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic.
Besides writing, my interests are reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley.
Currently I have written four Death by Chocolate mysteries: Death by Chocolate; Murder, Lies and Chocolate; The Great Chocolate Scam; and Chocolate Mousse Attack as well as two Charley’s Ghost mysteries: The Ex Who Wouldn’t Die and The Ex Who Glowed in the Dark. More in each series will be released as soon as I can copy them from my brain to the computer!
I have sold fifteen romance novels ranging from comedy to dark suspense under the names Sally Carleen, Sally Steward and Sara Garrett. For these novels, I won several awards including National Readers’ Choice, Romantic Times Best Silhouette Romance and two Rita finalist slots. Most of the Silhouettes are available as e-books, and I have e-pubbed six of the out-of-print single titles.
