Chocolate Wishes by: Trisha Ashley
Avon Harper Collins. March 2010
ISBN No: 9781847561145
I personally think that Trisha Ashley is a wonderful writer. This particular story, 'Chocolate Wishes’, revolves around the main character, whose name is Chloe Lyon. Chloe lives with her younger half brother Jake and her grandfather 'Grumps'. Her grandfather Grump’s is somewhat eccentric in manner, to say the least, and heads up a coven that practices pagan rites!
Chloe’s life up until now has not been easy, and events within it have been fairly complicated in places. In her spare time Chloe makes chocolate wishes in her kitchen (hollow chocolate shapes containing 'wishes', which are small pieces of paper with encouraging thoughts, suggestions or predictions printed on them).
At the start of this story the future is looking bright for Chloe, following a house move to the picture perfect Lancashire village of Sticklepond, until a new vicar arrives in the village!
This story is not just for the ladies, but is a very readable book for the male species as well! Trisha Ashley’s writing is easy to follow and flows well. Trisha paints the descriptions of her characters so well, that you can clearly imagine them within your mind long after you have finished reading this book! This story is also quite humorous and you can feel the smile spreading across your face at certain points throughout this tale.
As a bloke, I actually really enjoyed reading this particular story about Chloe, her family, friends and the unfolding events that impacted on the regular routine that Chloe once seemed to have! Obtain a copy of this book if you are looking for some light and entertaining reading! I am now looking forward to reading Trisha’s next book, which is scheduled to arrive in the book shops within the next few weeks.
