The snow is falling, the hot chocolate’s warming, and hearts are melting . . .
Emma is the proud owner of The Chocolate Shop by the Sea, nestled in the heart of the cosy seaside village that’s become her home. With Christmas right around the corner, she and her assistant Holly are busy cooking up the locals’ festive favourites.
From cinnamon hot chocolates to reindeer lollipops, Christmas wouldn’t taste the same without a little cocoa magic. And for Emma it’s the perfect distraction from her romantic pains of the past. So when the shop’s miserly landlord threatens to hike up the rent, Emma’s Christmas and New Year suddenly look a lot less cheerful.
With the whole village rallying behind her – and loyal spaniel Alfie by her side – Emma’s determined to hold onto her chocolate-box dream.
The chocolate calendar countdown is on. Can Emma rescue her business and her broken heart?
If you want a cosy festive read this is the book for you, add some romance and lots of chocolate and what more could you want? Caroline is a new author to me and I really don’t know why I haven’t read any of her books before. This one was perfect. I love the fact that Emma runs her own chocolate shop that would be my dream job, and her sweet little dog Alfie sounds adorable. I love how the people in the village all help Emma out when she needed them. Max sounds like a lovely guy too and I really hope that there is a sequel as I would love to find out what happens next in Emma’s future.
