    1 thought on “Death by Chocolate”

    1. My first read of this author and I'll be back because the characters are well developed and fun, well, mostly, some are not so nice plus the mystery got me going and I guessed wrong. So good for Ms. McKevett.

    2. I really enjoyed this book! McKevett is a master at weaving a suspense story with humor, intrigue, and overall entertainment. Her characters are so dimensional and well-crafted. The ending was unpredictable, which I enjoyed, but also satisfying. My favorite part of this particular book in the series was the character of Cordele. McKevett allows lessons to be learned through the invention of her characters and Cordele has much to teach to the reader.

    3. Very easy read. I read this in one day on a plane to Houston. I love the main character because she is a sassy plus sized woman! Nothing though that stimulates the mind or makes me want to change the world.

    4. Quick mystery read. I loved it! And it's the one of the first in a series of 15. All of them are awesome!

    5. This book was the quintessential summer-time novel. Light and a quick read. Sometimes this kind of book is just the ticket.

    6. My first book by this author and it won't be my last. So refreshing to have a female PI who is not stumbling into a job that she has no training for. Clever, a fast read and just a fun time!

    7. Not terrible, but not great. The story is interesting but is missing the drama and suspense of a truly good 'who done it'. I was hoping for a new author but I probably won't bother with any others in the series.

    8. Sonja Massie’s Savannah Reid Mystery series, written under the pseudonym G. A. McKevett, isn’t for everyone. But if you happen to know, or be, an irreverent middle-aged foodie who enjoys wit and humor more than teeth-gritting suspense and graphic gore, there’s a good chance that the series will resonate with you. If a detective who can be tough and aggressive, yet also bubble with genuine friendliness and hospitality befitting her Georgian roots sounds appealing, check out this series. If [...]

    9. Death by Chocolate is a book with unexpected heartstrings and tugs. McKevett's Reid sisters, Savannah and Cordele, make a lot of groundbreaking observations on how life used to be. And it's set against a hard pill of a case where justice is served in pretty sad design.Of the Reid books, this is a favorite. The case and family dynamic on all sides really points to the right spots for people with some childhood drama and trauma. But what's better is seeing Van open up, and explain life, with even [...]

    10. so far its taking place in ca, at a estate along the ocean. a woman who makes choc (but isnt a good cook) for tv who was really mean hired savannah to see who is sending her death threat letters. no one likes her so its going to be hard to narrow it down. she gets killed early on in the book. i just started it last night and am trying to make the book last until the next one in the series (I already requested it) shows up. i enjoy this series very much! savannah got a cold but it went away alrea [...]

    11. Business has been a little slow at the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency, but full-figured detective Savannah Reid doesn't have time to drown her sorrows in a box of double-chocolate truffles. She's too busy watching the Gourmet Network -- and drooling over the sinfully scrumptious confections that Lady Eleanor ("The Queen of Chocolate") whips up on-air.When Savannah hears that Lady Eleanor has been getting death threats, she jumps at the chance to be her round-the-clock bodyguard. Although sh [...]

    12. Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars I really [...]

    13. This was the first novel I had read in the series, and I intend to read more. The characters were sharply drawn, and the mystery of who killed Lady Eleanor is not resolved until near the end. Savannay Reid has many facets. She not only investigates the death, but also deals with her sibling who is visiting. Even though she does not particularly care for Eleanor's 3 dogs, she calls a rescue group to save them when they are sent to the pound. Savannah is a bright, caring woman. No wonder she has h [...]

    14. Death by Chocolate can be read and enjoyed as a light, humorous, quick read with quirky characters and a fun setting but there is actually a little more depth than I would have expected in a food themed cozy series. I picked this book up in mid series so I probably missed a bit of the back story but that will just encourage me to look for and read the earlier books in the series.

    15. Working my way through this series, not sure where I wandered off from it. In this installment savannah is between jobs when she accepts the job of finding out who is threatening her client. Only her client is mean spirtied and has a whole closet full of family problems and secrets. She is also the star of the reality cooking show. So when she dies from an apparent heart attack, Savannah being the nosy person she is starts digging and finds out she was poisioned. The list of who did and why stre [...]

    16. Similar to Diane Mott Davidson's mystery series (sans recipes) as both tend toward one-note secondary characters and the denigration of any sort of healthy food. Established characters--Reid and her cohorts--may be better developed; I dove into the series with this book, so I'm not familiar with the rest.The ending was impressive, with a subtlety you don't usually find in murder mystery series; but that just made the flat characters more aggravating.

    17. I am really dissapointed! Loved her book 'Poisoned Tarts' in that book there was mystery, a good plot,great characters,and even a bit of light forensic descriptionsng for fingerprints etc. Which I enjoyed as I dont read anything heavy on that topic. It was a nice change,So I had hopes that this book would be a similar mixI was wrong. Long drawn out and not hard to guess 'who done it'.y try her later books in the series.hope this one was just a bad one

    18. I have to say I did not like this book. I think it was both the writing and the speaker. I found the characters unbelievable and unlikable. I probably couldn't have counted the number of times I rolled my eyes at the ridiculous statements, comments and dialog. It was a struggle to listen to the entire story. I ended up listening others in between.

    19. I really didn't like this book. It's one of a growing genre of books about middle aged women who worry more about their weight and love life than what's going on in the story. The murder is secondary. The Sarah Reid character and all the others were unlikeable and for me that's a deal breaker. I read about half the book and quit.

    20. I really liked the Private Eye in this book, she was fun, quirky and real. The plot was good, but the story a little sad. I will definitely read more by this author as she has several more with the same private eyed I like that Savannah (the P.I.) loves chocolate too.

    21. I enjoyed this story. Savannah is trying to find out who wrote threatening letters to a popular tv chef, when she is murdered. She is also dealing with her youngest sister who feels she is owed something.

    22. Lady Eleanor (the Queen of Chocolate) feels threatened, and rightly so. Since Savannah could not protect her client, she turns her attention to finding the murderer. Between that and sorting out things with her tightly wound sister, she has a busy few days.

    23. I would rate it 3 1/2 stars if I could. I enjoyed this murder mystery, with the likable, large, middle aged private investigator Savannah Reid. It is nice to read a mystery story that's not filled with offensive language and sex. It was a pleasant but not overly suspenseful book.

    24. I do love food and cooking. Savannah is on the case to find out who killed the Queen of Chocolate. A good quick read that has me guessing who did it. The characters are all so darn tootin' cute, you gotta love them.

    25. Cooking show host Lady Eleanor is really an alcoholic, solovenry ttyrant who can not cook in real life. When she is killed, dectective Savannah Reid must attempt to locate the killer since she likes Lady Eleanor's granddaughter as much as she despised the lady.

    26. The basic story lines are good. I just get tired of her family. The couple I have read without family were much better. Also food sometimes just gets in the way of the plot. Will finish the series, just need some time between books.
