Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Review: To do something for one person may mean hurting another. But sometimes, it's what's best. Easy? No. It is what it is. For Nora, she realized at the last second that she couldn't go through a wedding with a man she knew that spending the rest of her life with wouldn't work. The man happened to be someone her father thought highly of. What does Nora do? Starts over, making a life for herself.
Chocolate Aftertaste is full of new beginnings, and ghosts from a past. The story explores what it's like to create a life for yourself, but also having to face the history that brought you there.
This is a good story. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The characters are real, the situations understandable and easy to relate to. There were a few issues I had with the hero and heroine at times, but nothing that drew me away. I'm interested to see what else this author has in store.
