Kensington bundles two of Leslie Meier's most popular Lucy Stone holiday mysteries--Valentine Murder and Chocolate Covered Murder--into one paperback volume! It's Valentine's Day in Tinker's Cove, Maine, but when it comes to foul play, Pennysaver reporter Lucy Stone can't sugar coat the truth...


Lucy has barely arrived at her first library board meeting when the new librarian is found dead in the basement. The agitated group assumes Bitsy Howell was killed by an outsider--until Detective Lt. Horowitz announces that the killer is among them. Lucy knew that Bitsy rubbed some people the wrong way. But she has a hunch the murderous motives run a lot deeper. And as she snoops into the curious lifestyles and shocking secrets of Tinker's Cove's most solid citizens, what she finds is far from hearts and flowers...


Despite the frigid winter temperatures, to boost the economy, Tinker's Cove is launching a travel promotion for Valentine's Day. Lucy is assigned a puff piece on upscale Chanticleer Chocolate--and its deliciously handsome owner. But there's another tantalizing tart behind the counter--sultry store manager Tamzin Graves. Leaving a throng of jealous women in her wake, it's almost no surprise when Tamzin turns up dead, her body covered in chocolate. And as Lucy closes in on the culprit, she may find herself locked in the clutches of a half-baked killer...
