A Shot in the 80% Dark by Amber Royer Great Escapes Book Tour My Review

About the book 

Felicity Koerber’s bean to bar chocolate shop thriving. Despite everything she’s been through with the murders she’s helped solve, Felicity is ready to take on new challenges. So when a local museum offers her a contract to create a chocolate replica of a gigantic sailing ship sculpture for a gala celebrating Galveston’s history, she jumps at the chance to combine chocolate-crafting with art.

The project is fun – right up until there’s not just one but two dead artists on the scene, and Felicity has to change gears back to detective. Logan, Felicity’s business partner and previous bodyguard, and Arlo, Felicity’s ex who is now the cop investigating the case, are split on which victim they think was actually the intended one. Felicity may have to take some chances, both emotionally and in luring out a killer, to determine the truth.

Can she find out how Galveston’s history relates to the murders, unmask a killer, and prepare 2,000 chocolate desserts for the gala all at the same time?

And I thought 

My favorite cover so far!  They just keep getting better.  

A Shot in the 80% Dark was a fun and charming read. 

For several reasons I have enjoyed this series! 

I mean Hello Chocolate.  I can't help myself I always look at the end of books for recipes.   

Author Amber Royer provides the reader with a little tour of  Galveston Island, Texas.  And shared some historical events.  (That btw are excellently researched. ) 

And well I love this little island. 

The characters are just fun.  And I think Felicity just keeps drawing me in like an old friend. 

I have had the chance through the Great Escapes Book Tours to read each title in this series. 

It is hard to choose a favorite character in the series because the author tends to make the animals steal the show. 

In each of the books in the series there is an animal depicted on the cover.  Renoir the Cockatoo makes himself heard.  He seems to have witnessed alot of goings on.  And has a lot to say. 

While Felicity tries to lure out the killer and get some answers she struggles maybe a little with two beaus trying to get her attention. 

I get Felicity and the little  romance triangle it is a bit hard to decide on team Logan and his  mysterious background.  Or team Arlo her highschool boyfriend.  

For this reader I am impatiently waiting for the next one.  It will be fun to see how my hometown plays into the mystery.  

My review will appear on Amazon and Good Reads. 

I received a complimentary copy.
