My review - What a wonderful story!
This is a book you will read and need a box of chocolates next to you. It is so lovely, filled with amazing characters and description of chocolate you wish you had right in front of you. It is set in a cute, cosy village that I really want to be apart of.
Emma opens a cute chocolate shop in Warkton-by-the-sea and she loves it. It is a thriving business, the locals adore her chocolate and she loves working there. She is currently seeing Max and things are going really well even if they have a long distant relationship they really care for each other. The summer brings more customers and it is also bringing some worries. Her landlord is giving her trouble, a sweet shop has opened and doesn't say the nicest things about and, someone from her past has appeared and it has her remembering her heart-ache from all those years ago.
With things starting to spiral can Emma get everything back on track?
I adored this book. Emma is a wonderful character who is ready to do what she can to deal with her landlord, make her business succeed and, make sure she and Max have a happily ever after. She works with Bev and Holly. I really love these characters. These women all stick up for each other and really care for each other. Even though, they are all different ages they are always there for each other and it's wonderful. They have a great relationship and I enjoyed reading about all of them. Max and Emma have a great relationship. Emma had something terrible happen to her in her past but, Max is ready to put her broken heart back together, with someone showing up from her past it gets her thinking....
Caroline has written a fantastic book that is really fun, full of amazing characters who you just want to give big hugs too and also-I'd love a book about Holly and Adam just saying.
