Angie Amalfi is no stranger to murder. With Paavo Smith, her homicide detective boyfriend. Angie wants to do something with her life - she finds a mission and decides this is a good cause. She starts volunteering there while Paavo is being suspected of dealing with runners for a betting scheme. His favorite enemy Axel Klaw shows up to add spice to the picture. And Angie has decided to make chocolate for her career. Each piece in this mystery comes together.
I wasn't that fond of this one - I skipped to the end about a third of the way in, skimming my way through. The main female character is an odd wash of clingy and independent, naive and intelligent. The main male character seemed rather flat - there was more about his actions than his interactions with people and with himself. Interesting premise but not that interesting.

I read the books in this series in a day or two, as I can't put them down once I start reading them :)
First book I've read by this author. Interesting. Maybe I should have given it 3 1/2 stars? It was good.
This was another good entry in the series. I can't wait to see where it goes next.
