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.

She brings everyone to life.
Love this writer and reader
Made me hungry...
I would recommend this book for an easy uncomplicated read, when you just want to lose yourself in chocolate and humour.
I liked the story, as you immersed yourself in Paris, the vivid descriptions, culture, imagining how the food tastes, the smells, the sense of style, the romanticism of Paris an adoring Parisian fantasy. It made me feel like I was walking the cobbled streets.
Anna Trent the central character was entertaining, and you can identify and sympathise with her easily.
I laughed with Anna and Laurant cried for Claire and Thierry, it was a bitter sweet romance novel.
I have just discovered Jenny Colgan, this is the 2nd book I've read after Meet me at the Cupcake Cafe, and looking forward to listening to more.
