About the Author

Sarah Graves lives in Eastport, Maine, in a 200-year-old house much like Jake Tiptree's. After 20 years of home repair - and yes, it really does make you think about murder! - she has handed in her toolbox and returned to her first love: chocolate. 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.


Praise for Death by Chocolate Frosted Doughnut

"A treat for aficionados of shopkeeper-sleuth cozies."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Entertaining...Plenty of suspects and a mysterious sailing ship make for an intriguing puzzle. Cozy fans are sure to have fun."
--Publishers Weekly

"Plenty of appealing elements...The ever sympathetic main characters, the close relationships Jake has with her multigenerational family, the beautifully described coastal Maine setting, and the baking frame."

Praise for Sarah Graves' previous mystery, Death by Chocolate Malted Milkshake

"Jacobia 'Jake' Tiptree, the star of Graves's Home Repair Is Homicide series . . . is back in this charming series launch. . . . The characters are appealing, and down east Maine is a delightful place to visit. Graves fans will enjoy catching up with old friends."
--Publishers Weekly

"Sympathetic characters, effective plot twists, a vividly described small-town Maine setting, and the baking frame add to this satisfying cozy that will appeal to fans of Joanne Fluke and Diane Mott Davidson (for the baking details) and Leslie Meier (for the Maine setting)."

"As her handywoman heroine reinvents herself in chocolate, Graves adds enough physical danger to her comfy tale of small-town mayhem to move it into the . . . range of the cozy thriller. Gives new currency to the phrase 'baking up a storm.'"
--Kirkus Reviews

"A welcome return to Eastport and the long familiar characters that continue to please, but this time with a recipe at the end that will please even more."
--Maine Quoddy Times

"Returning fans will appreciate the character growth and development featured throughout the new book, and the opportunity to catch up with some fan-favorite minor characters."
--Maine News Observer

"The mystery is a good one . . . readers will be happy to see [Jake and Ellie's] new adventure . . . And yes, Ellie shares her grandmother's recipe for Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake. The cover art alone is enough to make you crave a big slice."
--Kings River Life
