Chocolate as a motive and means
Members of the newly renovated Meadowbrook Health Resort are dropping like flies - including famed chef Edith Chiles.

On the eve of the grand re-opening, this is not the best advertisement and so it's up to John Stone, the manager, to find the cause and the murderer.

Delightfully sarcastic and cynical, Stone finds himself teaming up with Edwina Parlor, mystery writer and amateur sleuth, in a wacky race against time. The clues point to a sinister box of chocolates, and the suspects include all the outlandish characters working for the resort...

Could it be Lady Riverdale, owner of the resort, and a woman with dark secrets? Or Rita Deadwood, gym instructor and all around bitch? Dick Simmering, the aerobics instructor?
Anne, the panic stricken nurse?

Or could it be "Sweet Pea" Meadowbrook, overweight and grieving daughter of the recently deceased founder of the resort?

This is Death by Chocolate which combines all the elements of classic murder mysteries with a scathing satire of today's health crazes.
