the choc lit love match selection Reviews
Really cute short stories written by talented authors. Some amused me more than others, but they were all quite good. One was a WWII setting with a blind man. One was a high school reunion with a twist of school bullying and I was surprised and confused by this one a bit. One was a culinary chef. My favorite had to be this one in which this guy delivers a cake to his girlfriend, not knowing she's not there anymore. The cake ends up in the hands of someone else...and I was sitting there wondering if the lady would find him to tell him in time...and rooting for them both. Another story with a Vicar made me laugh. Witty and sarcastic. Cute. My only complaint is the recipes were in grams and stuff. I think it would have been nice to have an Americanized versions for those across the pond.

HA.A Different Kind of Music – Angela Britnell All these recipes have made me to hungry to think!Just Add Milk – Rhoda Baxter Too short.Gut Instinct – Jules WakeI did not see that one coming! Some good, some forgettable, some ok. You know, the same old same old with anthologies. They all differ. Some manage to put in a good story in a short way. Some do not manage.It was an xmas (sort of) anthology so that was fun. But they were not overly xmassy. Some did not even mention when it took place. But a nice read for December.
A delightful collection of romantic stories, some funny, some quirky, and some just passionate. Each story is accompanied by sweet recipe, usually central to the story. I particularly like Jane Lovering's amusing story "Raspberries" where the postman reads the postcards he has to deliver on his round. I shall also be trying the white chocolate and raspberry brownie recipe that helped to win him over!
The Choc Lit Love Match Selectionwas a delightful chocalicious set of short stories.The stories were short and sweet, and the delicious recipe matched with each story was a fabulous tie-in. It’s a winning idea from Choc Lit : )A lovely and fun read between books, or during a commute.
I loved these stories. What could be better after all than a good romance and chocolate?The recipes are a great idea.My own short story is included in this anthology and I'm proud and thrilled to be in such brilliant company!
