“Dorothy St. James has crafted a delicious concoction of murder and mayhem in her debut title Asking for Truffle. The spunky heroine, Penn, makes a refreshingly no nonsense amateur sleuth, working to discover who murdered her longtime friend while taking on the delicious task of learning how to make artisan chocolates with her adorable dog Stella at her side. I enjoyed every bite.”
―Jenn McKinlay, NYT and USA Today bestselling author of the Cupcake Bakery mysteries
"Asking for Truffle is a splendid twist on the cozy, offering a complex heroine, a coastal town full of secrets, and surprises around every corner. A heady delight for chocolate lovers and an enticing beginning to a new mystery series. I look forward to many more installments from St. James and her heroine, Penn."

I fell for this book. I am a South Carolina native and the people and town rang true to me. Maybe a little extreme but believable. The mystery was good. But mostly I found myself falling for the characters and even the prickly Penn. And don't even get me started on the chocolate. There are recipes at the end of the book. I will be trying some of them.
