In the fifth Death by Chocolate Mystery by USA Today bestselling author Sarah Graves, Jacobia “Jake” Tiptree and Ellie White, owners of the Chocolate Moose Bakery, are hired to cater a retired film star’s party in what’s rumored to be Eastport, Maine’s most haunted house…

Jake and Ellie are taking a break from perfecting their chocolate pizza recipe to cater a housewarming party hosted by movie icon Ingrid Merryfield. Miss Merryfield is famous for her old-Hollywood glamour. Her new home, Cliff House, has a reputation too—for being haunted. Some of her guests even try to summon a spirit during the party, using a Ouija board. What arrives instead is a freak autumn storm that downs an ancient tree, trapping everyone on the property and setting the stage for a killer’s planned spree . . .

Though Jake and Ellie don’t intend to get stirred into the mix, there’s no avoiding it—especially when they witness a guest being shoved over the very precipice that gave Cliff House its forbidding name. As they sift through suspects and motives, their search takes them from a long-lost family graveyard to an herbalist’s deceptively sweet cottage and finally to Cliff House’s overgrown gardens. Is there some ghostly presence involved—or a flesh-and-blood villain? Either way, can they avoid meeting their very own, very permanent Hollywood ending?

About the Author

Sarah Graves is the USA Today bestselling author of the Death by Chocolate Mysteries, the Home Repair is Homicide Mystery Series, and the Lizzie Snow suspense novels. Much like Jake Tiptree, the sleuth who stars in her cozy mysteries, she lives in a 200-year-old house in Eastport, Maine. When she's not cooking or baking something delectable (or writing about it) she tends a huge garden or shovels snow, depending upon the season.
