Elaine Macko

& Elaine Macko


Elaine Macko starts us off with Alex Harris posing an interesting query…is it good to be passionate over something that involves the death of another? Well, Alex Harris sure has a knack for falling into murder mysteries, and this time, when she gets up covered in chocolate and finding a body also “dipped” in chocolate, it puts her right back into…what else, murder! I love it, but what a way to ruin all that chocolate!
