The Chocolate Raccoon Rigmarole is the 18th installment in JoAnna Carl’s Chocoholic Mystery Series. In this novel, Lee Woodyard, the protagonist, must solve a weird mystery which includes a series of break-ins of local businesses where the only things taken include foodie treats. That doesn’t last, however, when a dead body is found, and Lee must work her hardest while still running the chocolate company, TenHuis Chocolade, and keeping her friends safe.
This novel is part of a bestselling series, and has gone on for years, it includes characters that readers know. And while the characters are familiar, they don’t seem real. Some even have unlikely names like “Dolly Jolly,” “Jerry Cherry,” and “Phil McNeal.” Reading this series is like reading comic books where the characters aren’t supposed to be real, and the scenarios aren’t supposed to be things that really happen. That is not a negative, however, and these mysteries, including The Chocolate Raccoon Rigmarole are feel good books with no stress and very little (but some) suspense. Readers already know that their favorite characters are going to be all right, but it’s fun to read and see just what they have to go through to find the bad guys and see that everything is now all right in their world. One of the best things about this culinary mystery is the fact that it includes chocolate recipes and trivia – fun information,

This series is a good one for all ages, and like a good cozy, does not contain graphic violence, profanity, or sex.
