The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris
Inside Paris's premiere chocolate shop, sometimes dreams really can come true. It's true that Anna Trent is a supervisor in a chocolate factory... but that doesn't necessarily mean she knows how to make chocolate. And when a fateful accident gives her the opportunity to work at Paris's elite chocolatier Le Chapeau Chocolat, Anna expects to be outed as a fraud. After all, there is a world of difference between chalky, mass-produced English chocolate and the gourmet confections Anna's new boss creates. But with a bit of luck and a lot of patience, Anna might learn that the sweetest things in life are always worth working for. Hopeful, laugh-out-loud funny, and irresistibly addictive, The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris is a novel worth savoring. Praise for Jenny Colgan: "Heartwarming... Colgan folds in a colorful cast of characters and whips up a sweet, easy read."- USA Today "Absolutely adorable."- Booklist

What's not to like about a book that takes place in a chocolate shop in Paris? But it's not exactly what you expect...Beneath the surface it's a story about lost love and true love, building a new life and completing your life, as well as the importance of good quality in all areas of life. The friendship between the elderly Claire and the young Anna and the way their stories parallel each other is intriguing and sweet. I enjoyed every minute of it.

I enjoyed reading about Paris, and working in chocolate factories and shops, and I enjoyed the somewhat parallel stories of Anna and Claire. I stayed up late to finish this novel as I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next. But the recipes advertised on the front cover -- they are not on par with fine chocolates. I don't think they belong in the back of this novel. Using a microwave to melt chocolate ... rice crispies in a recipe ... sacrilege!
