Publisher's Summary

Scottsdale, Arizona, may not be the liveliest place on earth, but it's never been as dead as this. The first annual Old Town Zombie Walk is announced, and Mel, Angie, and the Fairy Tale Cupcake crew are donning their best undead attire to sell some horror-themed desserts to the hungry hordes. But fun turns to fright when Mel finds a real dead body in a prop casket outside of the bakery's truck - and the corpse looks alarmingly like a zombie of their own. Mel worries that someone near and dear was the real target. To keep any of her friends from winding up six feet under, Mel will do whatever it takes to find a killer - no matter how scary things get...

A struggle to finish

This book was really hard to enjoy because the main character and her best friend make a lot of really stupid decisions that endanger themselves and others out of sheer stubbornness. Makes it really difficult to root for them.
On a technical level, the plot is a little unbelievable, the dialogue is klunky and all of these characters who are apparently in their 30s (?) behave really childishly. I would have believed they were all 16. 
Will not be reading anything else from this author.

Usually love these but…

This one just made me mad. Let’s go running around risking life and limb. Falling into danger is one thing being an absolute idiot made me angry at the characters and the author

Just, well…. fun!

The narrator brings the characters to life beautifully. This cozy mystery is part of a series that just takes the stress of life away for a little while. Very well developed characters and settings. I purchased this set after listening to them via the local library. It is a series that I can plug into when I have a lot going on and need a break from reality while doing laundry, dishes, etc. They were so worth my credits. I hope you think so too!

Great series

If you’re looking for a fun easy listen the Melanie Cooper series is great. The story line is usually frivolous despite the corpses that are part and parcel thus a cozy murder mystery.

Fantastic

I’ve enjoyed all of the books however, this one was my favorite. It kept me on the edge of my seat through the entire thing!

Not the best

Very exciting story, but Mel and Angie were quite annoying and unreasonable throughout the tale. I guess it was necessary to move the plot along, but wow.

A lot of skipping and pausing

This book on audible has a lot of skipping and pausing for long periods of time that makes it frustrating and not nice. I listen to audible books to help me relax and this is not relaxing. The other books in the series had long pauses between certain words or chapters but this is the worst by far. I believe this has been a true demise to the series for me as this will be the last book that I purchase from the series. It’s just not fun to listen too -then what’s the point of this audible?

Night of the Living... Dead Bride?

If you could sum up Dark Chocolate Demise in three words, what would they be?

Great Cozy Mystery

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Mel, she always has a good storyline, and in this book Angie and Tate are away for a little while.

What does Susan Boyce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She makes you feel like you are a part of the action.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Nothing really moved me. There were not really many movie quotes in this one, and that made me sad.

Any additional comments?

She uses, "said" a Lot. "She said," "he said," "she said." It gets really old.

I love all of the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries. They are so engaging. I think I'm guilty of listening to a whole book in 2 days.
