JENNIE READS REVIEW
The main character, Gloria, is embarking on a new life and using all her skills and events of her past to create and grow. Gloria is independent and works hard at maintaining that. However the town of Comfort is a web where the strings (or people) are all entwined and reactive to each other. As Gloria tries to maintain her separate lifestyle, she slowly opens to the possibilities being offered by the town and its inhabitants. A new chocolate shop is her first foray into the retail world. With an incredible partner and chocolatier and her logical banking background, she is up to the task. Or is she? Everything does not go exactly as portrayed on a spreadsheet. The author took me on some amusing twists and turns that I enjoyed with each page swipe.
Ok, side discussion here. Being a woman comfortable in my own skin and slightly past that middle age number, I at times, get tired of characters that do not reflect the now me. There are many days that I would not know I wasn’t in my 30s if it wasn’t for those pesky mirrors, but I know I am not. However this author creates characters that are 4D and people I feel like I could easily slip into a friendship with. The jury is still out on whether I am a Knitter or a Bunco person – time and hopefully the next book will help determine that. Speaking of which, there is a peek at the next book at the end of this one and I happily saw that Gloria is staying center stage!

I love to hear that there are 4D, relatable to past-midlife me characters in the story! And a little mystery and a lot of chocolate is ALWAYS a good thing. Thanks for the review!
