Win a copy of Chocolate Roses!

Love
chocolate? Love
Jane Eyre?


Then you're going to love the blog tour (July
26-August 6)
for Chocolate Roses by Joan Sowards.


Janie Rose Whitaker¹s world revolved around her chocolate shop until
Roger Wentworth and his young daughter moved into the apartment across from
Janie¹s. Anyone would think Roger fit the mold of the ³perfect² guy, but
soon Janie discovers secrets that could keep them apart forever. Though she
resists getting involved in Roger¹s complicated life, they are drawn
further into a bittersweet relationship.

You will laugh, cry, and crave chocolate as you read this LDS parody of the
classic novel Jane Eyre.


My Review:
I really enjoyed Chocolate Roses. It is a parody of Jane Eyre—one of my all time favorite books. She follows the storyline of Jane Eyre closely, with quotes from the book at the beginning of each chapter. I read it in one sitting (and had to go get some chocolates from the pantry at one point!) It is a well-written, fun, lighthearted story with a heroine that is not your typical skinny, beautiful-but-doesn’t-know-it character. The love triangle addresses some sensitive issues, but it is handled in a tasteful, believable way. This is definitely one I will read again—perhaps on a stormy evening, wrapped up in my quilt, with a box of delicious chocolate close at hand!


We have two great prizes up for grabs!
Win either a copy of the
book (2 winners) or this fabulous apron created by Joan!
