When Detective Bennett O'Mara finds a chocolate wrapper on a strangled girl, it leads him to enigmatic chocolatier Juliana Lovece. Just as this perceptive woman gets under his hardened skin, he suspects she may be at the centre of an increasing murder count.
14 Apr Dripping in Chocolate (2012)
I seem to have run out of quality mystery movies, and am out seeking a second or third tier. This at least had Sydney, and I now live in Australia.
Yet another mystery where out of the blue with no warning, the trusted policewoman is revealed to be the lost orphan who will inherit a fortune. And this is revealed in the most contrived of mortal threats to our innocent woman. She is saved by the mysterious cop who — natch — becomes her lover. (The old lover is killed in the melee.)
Along the way, an improbable involvement of a chocolatier and her product are woven in
This is a reasonable enough production but of a genre that does not deserve to exist, alas.
