When Emma opened her gorgeous little chocolate shop in the harbour village of Warktonby-the-Sea, she realised a lifelong dream. Love is also blossoming with her hunky beau, Max, who’s slowly healing her fragile heart. Summer is here and life has never felt so sweet. Until the rainclouds start to gather… A rival sweet shop and killjoy landlord give Emma a headache, and when a face from the past turns up unannounced, Emma finds herself spiralling down memory lane. With Max’s crazy work schedule driving him to distraction, Emma’s in danger of making some choices she might regret . . . With close friends, spaniel Alfie, and the whole village behind her, can Emma get the chocolate shop and her love life back on track? Only time will tell in this deliciously romantic novel of love, loss, hope and second chances.
Oh. My. Goodness! You may have heard me talking about the first book in this series – The Cosy Christmas Chocolate Shop. In the first story we meet Emma and are introduced to her gorgeous little chocolate shop by the sea and all the characters that make it so wonderful – her assistant Holly, her dog Alfie and Max (a hunky man she meets on the beach!). After losing her fiancé the cafe helped put her back together – can she keep hold of the cafe and her heart at the same time?
I loved the first book and I wanted to know what happened next. What did Caroline Roberts do? She WROTE ANOTHER ONE! Especially for me I bet.
Now I don’t want to give too much away about what happens in The Cosy Seaside Chocolate Shop as you can read the blurb and it’s spoiler central on Goodreads but I will tell you one thing. It’s SOOOO GOOD!! It made me laugh, made me cry and also made me late back from my lunch break. I just couldn’t stop reading!! It’s beautifully written and makes you feel as if you’re sitting in the tea shop with them.
A big fat 5 stars for this one. Caroline… Pretty please write another one!
