Death By Chocolate by Julie Anne Lindsay
Review by K R Hughes
When I read the title I thought this would be a predictable murder and a long drawn out chase of who dunit. Instead it’s a light hearted romp of unfortunate accidents by Ruby Russell and her cohort Charlotte, both out of the mental institution and trying to live a ‘normal’ life. The first ‘accident’ happens when Ruby discovers that her middle aged husband is cheating on her with a woman the same age as their son. Ruby wants to teach him a lesson and puts Viagra in his chocolate mousse. Unfortunately, the stiffie he becomes isn’t what she had anticipated. If I tell you anymore it’ll ruin this must read story that is both light-hearted and disturbing at the same time.
Death by Chocolate is well written while the plot twists keep the reader entertained if not slightly ill by the mad logic that describes Ruby Russell.
My only complaint is that the author used too many names with the same beginning and ending letters. Someone should let her know it’s confusing to the reader and generally accepted. Otherwise the story is humorous and well worth the read.
deserves 5 stars
