Oo la la, what a good book to follow up HP and the OotP! Double hitter in the “Getting Alli to Read” campaign!
I had watched the movie, loooooved the movie. The movie made me fat that’s how much I loved it. Sold me with Johnny Depp and then it was just a winner winner all around!
The book was so beautiful! Lovely story, lovely way it was written, and just overall five star everything. It was something that you want to curl up with in a snuggly sweater and drink hot chocolate with. (Homemade hot chocolate, with a box of chocolates, and maybe a cake pop or two. Or seven.)
The story is that a woman and her daughter move to a teeny tiny town in France and open up a chocolate shop. The place is viewed as a sinners den due to it being Lent and she is just tempting people. The priest in this book is out to get her and then a bunch of gypsies show up and the town is in a whirlwind of aggression towards them.
If anything, this book made me want to open a chocolate shop and be a gypsy at the same time. I even made Sim gypsies that lived on a houseboat and it was so much fun.
Love this book. I’m going to buy some chocolates now, see ya!
