At the beginning of the month we had Mothers’Day. It seems such a long time ago. One of the presents I received was this.
The book is a lighthearted romance along the lines of Chocolat by Joanne Harris. We visit France in the story and there is plenty of chocolate involvement.
From the cover:
Christmas Livingstone has ten rules for happiness, the most important of which is ‘absolutely no romantic relationships.’
In The Chocolate Apothecary, her enchanting artisan store in Tasmania, she tempers chocolate and creates handmade delicacies. Surrounded by gifts for the senses, in this shop chocolate isn’t just good for you, it’s medicine.
And then one day a stranger arrives at her front door – a dishevelled botanist seeking her help. She really doesn’t need Lincoln van Luc to walk into her life, even if he does have the nicest blue eyes, the loveliest meddling grandmother and a gorgeous newly rescued dog. She really doesn’t need any of it. Or does she?
A lighthearted novel that was easy reading but be warned you need the box of chocolates to accompany this novel.
