The Cosy Seaside Chocolate Shop by Caroline Roberts

When Emma opened her gorgeous little chocolate shop in the harbour village of Warkton-by-the-Sea, she realised a lifelong dream. Love is also blossoming with her hunky beau, Max, who’s slowly healing her fragile heart.
Summer is here and life has never felt so sweet. Until the rainclouds start to gather…
A rival sweet shop and killjoy landlord give Emma a headache, and when a face from the past turns up unannounced, Emma finds herself spiralling down memory lane. With Max’s crazy work schedule driving him to distraction, Emma’s in danger of making some choices she might regret . . .
With close friends, spaniel Alfie, and the whole village behind her, can Emma get the chocolate shop and her love life back on track?

At Christmas I read The Cosy Christmas Chocolate shop by Caroline Roberts and let me tell you that quaint little shop and its loveable owner Emma has stayed in my mind so when I saw that there was a sequel being released I couldn’t wait.
In A Cosy Seaside Chocolate Shop we are reunited with all of our friends from the previous book and once again the community spirit is shining through. Emma and her friends Holly and Bev who work at the chocolate shop are as busy as ever and are keen to push the business even further with another new idea that was set to get the tastebuds flowing. Mr Eel is up to his nasty tricks again and for a while I did worry that the storyline was going to be a bit to alike the first book but gradually other events unfold to set a fresh feel to the storyline.
What I love about both of these books is how ambitious and passionate Emma is about her business and all of her hard work looks to be paying off but poor Emma always seems to face continual hurdles whilst all we wish to see for her is a fairytale happy ending. We see more of her relationship with Max in this book and also see how the relationship between Holly and Adam is blossoming too.
The detail that the author goes into with regards to the delights made and sold in the chocolate shop is amazing, nobody will be able to read this book without drooling from time to time. I wish that this little shop really did exist then I would be there in a heartbeat.
This book has everything you could possibly want from a perfect Summer holiday read and I am just keeping my fingers crossed that we will get a third book in this series as I do not feel like I am ready to say goodbye to these characters yet.
