  1. "Desire for Chocolate" intrigues me, and I'll look forward to hearing more about that one when you're done with it. By coincidence, I have a close Catalan friend (and her American husband), and I lived a few years in Richmond, England. So, the cover just jumped out at me.

    1. Interesting!! I'm quite enjoying it now, after a bit of a slow start.

  2. Desire for Chocolate intrigues me as well and I'd like to learn more about this novel. I hope you're enjoying the book.

    1. Yes, mostly 🙂 I will be sharing my thoughts soon.
