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?
Thank you to Harper Impulse for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I’ve read both of The Cosy Teashop in the Castle book and I loved them so I knew I had to read this one. To be honest I was sold the minute I saw chocolate! The book also has a very festive pretty cover which is always a win in my book.
Emma owns a chocolate shop and loves nothing more than creating new flavours and seeing her customers smile. Emma has suffered heart break in the past which has closed her off to love. She doesn’t see the point in going through it all again only to be left alone, again. That is until Emma meets a stranger on the beach on Boxing Day. Can this man break down Emma’s walls and open her heart to love again?
I love Emma’s assistant Holly. She is so bright and bubbly she is perfect for working in the shop.
This is a wonderful story that is excellently written. Caroline does an excellent job of creating these cosy locations. This story made me want to grab some chocolates and a warm drink and snuggle down. This is the perfect book for this season.
