Corinna Chapman is happy with her life as a baker. And her Israeli lover, Daniel, is as enchanting as ever. She has no intention of doing any more investigative work. At least not until she bit into what should have been a lovely violet cream chocolate and instead chomped down on a chili-filled catastrophe.
Why would someone sabotage gourmet chocolate? Does someone want Heavenly Pleasures, her friends' chocolate shop, to fail? Is this a horrible joke? Or is it a warning that worse is to come?
Then Daniel is attacked in a run-in with a so-called messiah. Could this messiah somehow be involved in the chocolate crime? And who is the mysterious man who moved into the upper apartment?
Kerry Greenwood is the creator of the Phryne Fisher series. Heavenly Pleasures is the second of three new mysteries, following Earthly Delights, featuring the irrepressible baker-cum-sleuth Corinna Chapman.
