I really like Carole Matthews’ books and “The Chocolate Lovers’ Club” was one of her books that I was desperate to read. Swansea has this great WH Smith with a clearance section where they sell some older books for really cheap and I was really excited when I found this book for the bargain price of £2! 🙂
Lucy, Nadia, Autumn and Chantal make up the Chocolate Lovers’ Club and as soon as one of them has a crisis they can call on each other to meet at Chocolate Heaven, a little speciality chocolate cafe in the heart of London.
Lucy is having trouble with her boyfriend Marcus who says he’s changed, but he really hasn’t; Chantal is struggling in a loveless relationship where cracks are starting to show; Nadia is struggling to keep a roof over her and her son’s head because of her husband’s gambling addiction, while Autumn is having family issues.
As a group they definitely have plenty to talk about and help each other with!
I really enjoyed “The Chocolate Lovers’ Club” so much so that I’ve gone out and bought the next 3 books in the series already! The characters were lovable, especially Lucy and I really enjoyed going through all their dramas with them! Carole Matthews writes the characters really well and although the story was a little predictable at times it didn’t stop me enjoying it! 🙂
A word of warning though, if you do want to read this book and those that follow, don’t read the blurbs of the next book until you’ve read the first book because the blurbs basically contain spoilers! 😀
But all in all this was a great book which I really enjoyed reading and I’m looking forward to reading the next books in the series 🙂
