The characters you loved in Hot Chocolate are back with more escapades of life in River Oaks. To keep track of this large family, Ireland has included a family tree.
Lila Mae is in a tizzy over the Chocolate Ball, a huge event that benefits homeless dogs and cats. If it weren’t for Julian Gillespie, the Chocolate Ball would have melted.
Bernie, the 92-year old patriarch, decides he wants his Bentley back. Joseph’s cousin Chewie is hired as the chauffeur. * Bambi is so happy to be expecting a child. Dorothea is at war with the world over being pregnant at 55.
Lila Mae’s astrologer gives clues of things to come. * Suzanne and Gray show up unexpectedly. She’s left Paul and wants Walter to handle the divorce. * Cissy has dumped Georgio, the tattoo artist, to Madge’s delight. Roger Bainsworth III has just the right family pedigree for her granddaughter.
When Amelia returns home from a grocery run, her kitchen door is slightly ajar. Three things catch her attention: a new vase of flowers, her marble rolling pin covered with blood… and a dead body on her kitchen floor.
Amelia freezes. Is there a murderer still in the house? She calls Detective Chance Walker, Lila Mae and finally… 9-1-1 after snapping a picture of the dead guy.
Chance questions Tilly. She wants to know why everyone thinks she runs around killing people! Dorothea is happy that no one is pointing the finger at her.
Louie and Scooter’s truce ended badly. * Chance bails Bernie and Chewie out of jail. * Madge thinks Carmichael is looking for another job. * Uncle Tito psychically investigates the murder. * Loved ones are accused of the murder and the family wrings their hands.
Secrets are no longer safe; the family has more shocks than the San Andreas fault line! One thing stands firm: The Alcott clan puts family first no matter what.
