We rated this book:


Charity Penn has gotten into the groove of running the chocolate shop she inherited from her grandmother just in time for the beach music festival. The festival’s star attractions include two feuding bands and music star Bixby Lewis, who seems to have his eye on her. When a singer is found dead in a bonfire, a friend is suspected of murder. Her investigation takes a turn when she catches the attention of a crazed stalker, receives a threatening note thrown through her window, and Bixby seems to be next on the killer’s list. To solve the mystery, she unlocks secrets of the past that could finally answer the questions she’s had all her life.

Playing with Bonbon Fire explores Charity’s search for her mother and the family she’s created at Camilla Beach. Charity’s old life crashes into her new one when Bixby and her sister show up, bringing the chaos of fame with them. She has a settled personality with friends and a routine, so Bixby’s arrival throws her quiet life into a tailspin of secrets and threats. The murders make her suspicious of those around her as those closest to her seem to be keeping secrets. The relationship between Charity and Bixby adds flirty fun to the story, while the characters are never without their Southern charm.

Playing with Bonbon Fire is the second Southern Chocolate Shop Mystery.
