The bestselling Sarah Graves continues the spin-off series from her popular Home Repair is Homicide series with the third Death by Chocolate Mystery! In the quirky town of Eastport, Maine, Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree and her best friend, candy chef Ellie White, are busy running The Chocolate Moose, their waterfront shop specializing in all things chocolate. But when a pirate festival blows into their small town and a well-known food writer and TV personality turns up dead, Jake and Ellie find themselves marooned in a new murder investigation.

Everything is shipshape at Jake and Ellie's new waterfront bakery, The Chocolate Moose, especially now that the annual Pirate Festival is dropping anchor in their quaint island village of Eastport, Maine. Jake and Ellie are ready for the bounty of tourists sure to flood their shop. But their plans quickly sink when the body of celebrity foodie, Henry Hadlyme, is discovered in the Moose's basement.

Jake and Ellie are horrified, but their shock turns to dismay when Jake is pegged for the murder. Now, to clear Jake's name and save the shop, Jake and Ellie must swashbuckle down and figure out who among Henry's numerous enemies scuttled him in the cellar. Was it a long-ago jilted sweetheart's vengeful relative? His long-suffering personal assistant? Or perhaps some bitter-as-dark-chocolate unknown enemy, now aboard the mysterious ship lurking in Eastport's harbor?

Alas, dead men tell no tales, so Jake and Ellie will have to get to the bottom of the case on their own and find the real killer before anyone else is forced to walk the plank...
