TenHuis Chocolade is wall-to-wall with chocolate hearts for Valentine's Day. But Lee is getting no love from Private Detective Derrick Valentine.
He's looking for their employee — a woman Lee and her Aunt Nettie have been harboring for an underground railroad-type organization that aids abused women. Luckily, they manage to not spill the cocoa beans and clue him in.
But the situation becomes a complex confection when Valentine meets his end. And it's Aunt Nettie who becomes a suspect. Lee will have to find a way to free Nettie of guilt without exposing the innocent — and find a killer with a bitter heart that's definitely not made of chocolate...
