So up next we have the fourth post in the The Oddest Little Series blog tour and I'm delighted to be sharing my review for The Oddest Little Chocolate Shop by Beth Good. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
The Oddest Little Chocolate Shop
Treat yourself to something delicious . . .
'I love Beth Good's quirky style!' - bestselling author Katie Fforde
When Clementine discovers that Monsieur Ravel's beloved chocolaterie is about to close, she rushes to rescue it - without thinking through the consequences.
A lost Persian cat, a depressed but utterly gorgeous French chocolatier, an allergic shop assistant in search of true love, the oddest little chocolate shop Clementine has ever seen . . .
Can Clementine save them all, or has she bitten off more than she can chew?
A delicious, feel-good novella set in the world of chocolate-making from popular romantic comedy writer Beth Good.
I don't think you can go wrong with an opening set in a chocolate shop with a seemingly moody/brooding man and a cat. What follows is a fun and sweet romance that whisked me away thinking about chocolate and love. As with every book in this series there is a lovely fun and quirky sense of humour that really appealed to me.
I have to say that I felt the need for chocolate so just a word of warning as you are reading you may want to pick up a bar yourself and get comfy.
Clementine is like a force of nature and definitely knows what she wants but also has a sweet likeable side too. I enjoyed her interactions with Dominic and couldn't wait to see how everything would turn out in the end.
If you have a few hours spare then I would recommend picking up a copy of this book in fact any from the series. The story develops quite naturally and doesn't feel rushed with enough fun moments to keep the reader entertained.
The Oddest Little Chocolate Shop has fun characters, a quirky story and of course chocolate. You really can't go wrong!
With thanks to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources for my copy.
Born and raised in Essex, England, Beth Good was whisked away to an island tax haven at the age of eleven to attend an exclusive public school and rub shoulders with the rich and famous. Sadly, she never became rich or famous herself, so had to settle for infamy as a writer of dubious novels. She writes under several different names, mainly to avoid confusing her readers - and herself! As Beth Good she writes romantic comedy and feel-good fiction. She also writes thrillers as Jane Holland, historicals as Victoria Lamb and Elizabeth Moss, and feel-good fiction as Hannah Coates.
Beth currently lives in the West Country where she spends a great deal of time thinking romantic thoughts while staring out of her window at sheep. (These two actions are unrelated.)
You can find her most days on Twitter as @BethGoodWriter where she occasionally indulges in pointless banter about chocolate making and the Great British Bake Off. Due to a basic inability to say no, she has too many children and not enough money, which means she needs as many readers as she can get.
