Over the weekend I read a book I’d picked up several weeks ago. The Bride Wore Chocolate by Shirley Jump. It was an awesome read, funny, witty, and it made me want chocolate because every chapter began with a recipe for chocolate concoctions. I urge you to find a copy and read it for yourself. (I read it in 3 days, that should tell you something. I couldn’t put it down.)
It was originally released by Zebra in 2004, but the ebook came out from B&N in 2012 and the Kindle in 2013. I’ve visited a blog where the author was guest blogging and couldn’t wait to read it, but had to wait until the Kindle version came out. But the wait was well worth it.
Here’s a blurb for it:
Life couldn’t be more perfect for Candice Woodrow. Her gourmet gift basket company is thriving, and she’s set to marry steady, dependable Barry. There’s just one wrench in the fairy tale. Two weeks before her wedding she wakes up in the wrong man’s bed. Candace thinks she’ll be able to run out the door and forget all about Michael Vogler, but the Boston millionaire has other plans for the jittery bride.
As the wedding approaches, Candace’s life is further complicated by a thrill-seeking grandma and a meddlesome mother whose marriage track record rivals Elizabeth Taylor’s. She attempts to drown her sorrows in chocolate, but with a sexy bachelor appearing on her doorstep at every turn – she finds herself wondering if there’s enough of the sweet stuff in the world to stop her heart from racing every time he comes near
