➜Didn’t guess who the murderer was
➜Lots of humble-brag type talk of all the places she’s been and the things she’s done
Well research and knowledgable about chocolate and baking, though I know nothing so maybe it just sounds right lol
➜No mention of the issues with slave labor or unfair practices or Fair Trade that I recall
➜Haven’t read the first two books, don’t feel I missed anything. It gives information and explanation anytime something relevant from the past pops up
➜Wasn’t engaged or connected. It was just something to read & took me longer than normal.
➜Towards the end I was thinking “Hurry up and get somewhere instead of chasing your tail FFS!”
➜Do not read this when you’re hungry or cannot get food. Reading this at work was not pleasant.
➜Liked Hayden I guess.
➜Her two male sidekicks were cool. Liked how one is mysterious Charlie from Charlie’s Angels type. Really liked how her bodyguard brought some sense and perspective as someone who “comes from the other side of the tracks”
➜There’s many mentions of rough & tumble poverty stricken areas, even a tour or two, and the people who live there. Lots of talk of the luck getting out and how sad and unfair it is. Hayden’s solution is to write a check to a foundation she just heard of. There’s no context or exploration of it to make it real. It’s just another “exotic” location for her with the people as cardboard cutouts or pawns in the story.
➜She also proves that no matter how far you’ve come or how close you are with someone, some people will never let it go, and will have lingering doubts and suspicions.
➜In the end it’s alright. Easy to read, and the mystery held up under my apathetic gaze, but I can’t say I enjoyed it or recommend it.
➜Representation: Status Quo. Privileged and Proud.
➜Rating: Meh. 1.5 stars? Not the worse I’ve read, but Whatever.

colorful, well defined suspects. Everyone has

There is undeniable chemistry between Hayden
and Danny. Both are strong, well created,
multidimensional characters who compliment

vividly that the reader feels as if they are right
there in London. The English phrase are translated
for the reader convenience.
The story presents many different mouth watering
A good combo of mystery, murder, suspense,
chocolate and look into the English way of life.
The Semi-Sweet Hereafter is book #3 in the Chocolate
Whisperer Mystery series. It can be read as a stand alone.
I volunteered to read this eBook. Thanks to Net Gallery
and Kensington Publisher for the opportunity.
My opinion is my own.
I was really looking forward to reading this one, I mean chocolate with a mystery? Alas, it did not hold my attention like I had hoped. I am not sure why, it was a fun read and off course Hayden bumbles through and eventually figures out who the murderer is, but for some reason I kept falling asleep whenever I tried to read it. I am not sure if I will continue with this series or not.
