As dawn breaks over the Pont Neuf, and the cobbled alleyways of Paris come to life, Anna Trent is already awake and at work, mixing and stirring the finest, smoothest, richest chocolate; made entirely by hand, it is sold to the grandes dames of Paris.
It’s a huge shift from the chocolate factory she worked in at home in the north of England. But when an accident changed everything, Anna was thrown back in touch with her French teacher, Claire, who offered her the chance of a lifetime-to work in Paris with her former sweetheart Thierry, a master chocolatier.
With old wounds about to be uncovered and healed, Anna is set to discover more about real chocolate- and herself-than she ever dreamed.
This book immediately throws you in at the deep end because you are trying to work out what has happened.
Anna is set to make a new start after an accident and with the help of her French teacher; she immediately finds what she never had before.
When in Paris she falls in love with not only the city but a man too. We see the love chase of the two young lovers and then we see how a new start can really change everything. This is the ideal dream for anyone and so this book allows your mind to go off to Paris with Anna and imagine what it would be like.
The end of the book is left on a cliff-hanger and you're left wanting to know what happened.
This book is an easy read but you just want to keep reading. It is a perfect read on the beach on holiday or if you want something to take your mind away from reality.
I would recommend this book to anyone because you feel like you are placed right in the centre of the story and it leaves you guessing throughout which is what makes it a lot more interesting.
I love books by Jenny Colgan for that reason and I can't wait to read many more by her!
