A quirky romance which worked all the angles

ChocolateWorks_CoverThe Chocolate Works by Geoffrey Knight

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

That was nothing like I was expecting, and I really liked it.

Quirky, it felt as if it was pushing the whole ‘family helps with everything’ plotline a bit too far as some points, but I also didn’t actually care.

The characters and the setting were so compelling that I wasn’t in the slightest bit bothered that Ricky’s extended family had someone who could do everything that was needed.

That you could build a Chocolatier works in the middle of a tiny New Mexico town that was on its last legs was a stretch on its own.

Throw in a couple of the other plots and you’re asking a lot, but the author pulls it off because I wanted to see Levi and Henry make it through.

I loved both of them, same with all the secondary characters, the town, the chocolates Levi creates, they were all so very vividly drawn.

Just a thoroughly enjoyable read.
