The characters you loved in Hot Chocolate are back with more escapades of life in Houston’s wealthy River Oaks.

Lila Mae is in a tizzy over the Chocolate Ball – a huge event that she and her sisters, Dorothea and Madge, host every year. But due to unusual circumstances, Dorothea and Madge dump everything in Lila Mae’s lap. If it weren’t for Julian Gillespie of Event Is King, the Chocolate Ball would have melted.

Bernie, the Alcott sisters’ 92-year old father, decides he wants his Bentley back. The sisters and Bambi are horrified. They hire Joseph’s cousin Chewie as Bernie’s new chauffeur.

Wolfram, Lila Mae’s new astrologer, gives clues of things to come. This leaves Lila Mae and her sidekick Amelia with brows furrowed.

On her day off, Amelia decides to bake a chocolate blueberry pie. She discovers she needs to make a grocery run. When she returns home, she discovers her kitchen door is slightly ajar. Arms loaded with groceries, she toes the door open.

Three things catch her attention: a vase of flowers on the kitchen island that was not there when she left the house, her marble rolling pin covered with blood… and a dead body on her kitchen floor.

Amelia’s eyes drift toward the dining room and beyond – is the house empty, or is there a murderer in the house? She backs up, turns and hurries outside. After setting the bags on the ground, she slips back into the kitchen and snaps a picture of the dead guy. Then she calls Detective Chance Walker, Lila Mae and finally… 9-1-1.

Have been waiting for this book to come out. Could not wait to see what would happen to the Alcott clan. Could not put it down for long...only took two days to read. Completely entertaining! Like the last book, you have no idea who done it! Now I am ready for the next book!

I absolutely adore the Alcott Family series by the wonderfully talented Dawn Greenfield Ireland. Bitter Chocolate is the 2nd book in this series. I love these sisters and the family and friends that are so wildly Texan and offbeat. The mystery is divine and the laughter and love abounds throughout the story. I heartily urge you to get the first in the series, Hot Chocolate, so you can begin to love these characters as much as I do. I sincerely hope the author is working furiously on book three as I am anxious for more of Alcott mayhem. Highly recommended!

The author, Dawn Greenfield Ireland, has given us a family that we have come to know and love. Her descriptions of each member are vivid and leave no doubt in our minds who they are, how they think, how they react and how they share (or do not share) their inclinations toward life. Great series and am hoping she writes another and another.
I received the book from the author for an honest review. The second book in the Alcott Family adventure, which continues three months after Hot Chocolate. The sisters were at it again, doing their thing as life once again threw them a few curve balls. Adding Bambi, Zoe, Amelia and Gina to the mix of women hormones and you are knee deep into another chocolate covered adventure. The way the sisters gathered the people around them, paying them very well I might add, always humble in their approach made this a delightful story and I enjoyed every moment. (Where can I send my CV?) And how can I forget Louie? His antics really added some humor to the story line. The author surely must have a animal like him to pin point it so accurately. The easy way of going through the day to day things as another murder was committed, and Chance once again sorting through all the evidence to find the killer. I just love the flow of the scenes, all adding flavor and interest to the plot. Of course I have to mention Uncle Tito, whose help was crucial during the investigation. With the Chocolate Ball just around the corner the ladies were spreading themselves thin to get everything done. Especially Bambi who had to adjust to her new life as a very rich woman. With more romances that blossomed as the saga unfolded. Just as in book 1, the author's detailed descriptions kept the story very believable and realistic. The characters stayed within their own personas, complimenting the plot as it unfolded. Making this really a great read with everything included as you indulge in the aroma of ginger muffins and Cafe Mocha's at every turn. I am so glad that the author included the recipes, will have to try after all the lip smacking that took place. I look forward to Book 3 in the series.
Completely entertaining! Like the last book, you have no idea who done it! Now I am ready for the next book!
Thanks so much. So glad you liked BC. Spicy Chocolate is available for your entertainment. Look for Nutty Chocolate in 2019.
