REVIEW for Chocolate Wishes

Thank you to author Trisha Ashley, who is always so graceful and kind in sending me her wonderful books!
TITLE: Chocolate Wishes

AUTHOR: Trisha Ashley
GENRE: Chick Lit/Contempory Fiction
RATING: 4 Stars
First of all, how can you NOT fall in love with a book that is called Chocolate Wishes? especially since the premise of the book is about chocolate and love. truly there is nothing here NOT to love. Chocolate Wishes features Chloe who loves to make chocolate - dispensing each piece with a little wisdom included. Except that Chloe's own love life is far from perfect, especially when she gets jilted at the altar and then comes face to face with someone who is back in town - her first love who also happens to be an ex rock star.
It seems as though everywhere she turns Chloe is stuck hearing his music (bringing back memories she would prefer to forget) but now, she also has to see him on a regular basis as he is the new Vicar. What a mess and no amount of chocolate seems to be able to fix this - especially since she is fighting very hard not to fall back in love.
This story is whimsical and adorable - I instantly felt myself rooting for Chloe and finding that I was invested in all of the characters in the storyline. I love all the discussion about chocolate (of course) and I love that this book is about never giving up and never believing that you will not get your happy ever after - even if it does not look exactly the way you first thought it would. The author does a wonderful job of writing a book about love, that is really about loving yourself and believing in you.
