"Behind Chocolate Bars" by Kathy Aarons was a disappointing mystery. I read it because of the Hallowe'en theme and that was good. The murder mystery though wasn't the sort where you can follow the clues because there were hardly any at all. The murderer wasn't introduced until around page 70. There were only three scenes in the entire novel where the murderer had a few lines to say. The murderer was a very peripheral character. And, the resolution to the mystery happened way too quickly.
