The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris – Jenny Colgan
After a freak chocolate-factory accident that costs her two toes and a lot of dignity, Anna Trent is convinced her life is in freefall. Her old French teacher, Claire, isn’t so sure. In fact, she’s convinced that Anna might benefit from reinventing herself in Paris, and she calls in a few favors to get Anna a job at a ritzy chocolate shop in the heart of the City of Light. Jenny Colgan links Anna’s Parisian misadventures with Claire’s own love affair with France–and the owner of the chocolate shop Anna’s now bumbling around. The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris is a gentle, clean read; any incidents of sex are alluded to rather than detailed. Chocoholics and anyone who’s dreamed of remaking themselves in a new city should flock to this sweet title.
