Publisher's Summary

'Who died?' I said. 'Or is it a secret?' 'My mother, Vianne Rocher.'
Seeking refuge and anonymity in the cobbled streets of Montmartre, Yanne and her daughters, Rosette and Annie, live peacefully, if not happily, above their little chocolate shop. Nothing unusual marks them out; no red sachets hang by the door. The wind has stopped - at least for a while.
Then into their lives blows Zozie de l'Alba, the lady with the lollipop shoes, and everything begins to change.... But this new friendship is not what it seems. Ruthless, devious and seductive, Zozie de l'Alba has plans of her own - plans that will shake their world to pieces. And with everything she loves at stake, Yanne must face a difficult choice; to flee, as she has done so many times before, or to confront her most dangerous enemy... Herself.

Enjoyable

I did enjoy this but nothing like as much as the recording of Chocolat I bought first. I rate the content as 3 stars but give it 4 because of Juliet Stevenson's amazing reading. The story simply isn't as magical, as evocative or as charming as Chocolat - but that would be a hard act to follow! On the other hand it gives other characters a centre stage and the ending, if trite, is neat.
