Lee McKinney lives with her Aunt Nettie and helps her with the management of the family chocolate making/business. The winter promotional theme was teddy bears so they decorated the shop with some borrowed old teddy bear chocolate molds which turned out to be quite valuable as well as dangerous.
Lee's undercover romance with Joe hits a few snags but they work together to clear her ex-stepson who dropped in out of nowhere of the murder of the antique dealer who loaned them the molds.
A nice little cozy mystery with yummy sounding chocolates at the center of the controversy.
