Chocolate Roses


This great book is written by Joan Sowards, and I would recommend it to ALL my friends. The back cover reads – Janie Rose Whitaker’s world revolved around her chocolate shop until Roger Wentworth and his young daughter moved into the apartment across from Janie’s. Anyone would think Roger fit the mold of the “perfect” guy, but soon Janie discovers secrets that could keep them apart forever. Though she resists getting involved in Roger’s complicated life, they are drawn further into a bittersweet relationship.

I love the suspense Joan twisted into this story. Besides lots of mystery, there was also plenty of romance. I found myself laughing, crying, and wanting to know what would happen next. Sometimes I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough and some nights I found myself fighting to stay awake so that I could find out what was happening next.

I’ll warn you ahead of time to pay strict attention to everything you read, or you’ll find yourself hunting for the answers at the end because Joan includes a quiz at the end of her book.
