About this ebook

A victim gets iced in this chocolate-themed mystery with recipes and “a loving description of the food scene in Portland”(Kirkus Reviews).
Hayden Mundy Moore is an expert on everything chocolate, helping clients develop new products and revamp recipes until they're irresistible. But sometimes, a dash of murder finds its way into the mix . . .
After her involvement in a murder case in San Francisco, heiress Hayden Mundy Moore has moved on for the moment to Portland, Oregon, where her old college friend Carissa is celebrating her recent engagement. Naturally, while Hayden’s in town, staying in a house rented by her financial adviser, she has to visit every local destination known for serving chocolate treats.
Among them is Carissa’s ice cream business, Churn PDX, part of a group of food carts called Cartorama. Then Carissa’s fiancé is killed by the liquid nitrogen used to make ice cream—and Hayden gets the scoop on his notorious womanizing, which leads to more than a sprinkling of suspects . . .

Dangerously Dark by Colette London is the second book in A Chocolate Whisperer Mystery series. Hayden Mundy Moore is a freelance chocolate expert. She helps companies improve their products. Thanks to an inheritance, Hayden can pick only jobs that appeal to her. Hayden is heading to Portland, Oregon for an engagement party weekend for an old, college friend, Carissa. Hayden arrives in Portland and goes to Cartorama where Carissa has a cart called Churn PDX. Every food cart specializes in chocolate. Carissa opens her food cart and they find the dead body of her fiancé, Declan Murphy. The police declare Declan’s death an accident. Hayden does not believe it is an accident and decides to poke around a little. She is still running on a high from solving the mystery at her last assignment. Carissa (who does not seem very upset over her fiancé’s death) also asks Hayden to take over Declan’s Chocolate After Dark tour. It is already been scheduled and publicized (I think Carissa has an ulterior motive). Hayden agrees to run the tour since it will give her more time to poke around. Her friend and security expert, Danny Jamieson shows up to help out (and try and convince Hayden to leave Portland). Will Hayden find out that Declan was killed? Who would want to kill him and why? I found Dangerously Dark to be a silly novel with a very simple mystery. I was really hoping the second book in the series would be significantly better than the first (it is actually worse). Hayden does not really solve the mystery. They seem to solve themselves. Hayden is more focused on guys (especially Travis, her finance manager) than the mystery. I have no idea why she is friends with Carissa who was more concerned over making connections than the death of her fiancé. I give Dangerously Dark 2.75 out of 5 stars. I do not think I will be reading any more books in this series. I just cannot take the foolishness. I received a complimentary copy of Dangerously Dark from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
