Chocolate Diamonds is a murder mystery that is set in Europe. Dr. Jill Quint, a vintner and consulting forensic medical examiner from California, joins her three friends from Wisconsin in Antwerp, Belgium, the diamond industry hub of the world, to enjoy their annual girlfriends’ vacation exploring the museums, food, and beer of Belgium and the Netherlands.
A chance medical emergency pulls Jill and her friends into a homicide investigation, where they assist the Belgian police and Interpol with uncovering something worth killing for in the diamond industry. Who was the woman in the restaurant that Jill and Marie performed CPR on, and why did she die in the hospital after they had her stabilized? Was it just an unusual nut allergy, or something sinister?
