Overview

Enter the sinfully delicious universe of New York Times bestselling author Shirley Jump's Sweet and Savory Romances with the USA Today and Amazon Top 20 bestseller - The Bride Wore Chocolate!

Life couldn't be more perfect for Candace Woodrow. Her gourmet gift basket company is thriving, and she's set to marry steady, dependable Barry. There's just one wrench in the fairytale. Two weeks before her wedding she wakes up in the wrong man's bed. Candace thinks she'll be able to run out the door and forget all about Michael Vogler, but the Boston millionaire has other plans for the jittery bride.

As the wedding approaches, Candace's life is further complicated by a thrill-seeking grandma and a meddlesome mother whose marriage track record rivals Elizabeth Taylor's. She attempts to drown her sorrows in chocolate, but with a sexy bachelor appearing on her doorstep at every turn - she finds herself wondering if there's enough of the sweet stuff in the world to stop her heart from racing every time he comes near.

    The story was funny and entertaining. However, the lack of proper punctuation and the typos were horrendous. Throughout the whole book, instead of 'than' the book said 'man'; for 'breath' it said 'bream'; for 'the' it said 'die'; for 'that' it said 'mat'; for 'I' it said '1'...the list goes on and on. Come on people, do your homework.

    Editing anyone?

    This book was a cute story. Unfortunately it was overrun with so many errors it was hard to understand. I never look for errors and never point them out but, these made the story confusing in some places. I wouldn't recommend this book because of them.

    Cute story! Amazing recipes...what's not to like!

    Shirley Jump's new book puts us in one of those situations we pray we never find ourselves in...waking up somewhere and not knowing how in the heck we got there! But luckily for us,we don't have to figure out how to get out of the mess...we can just read on and see out how to Candice will get out of it!

    When you throw in a crazy, thrill seeking Grandma and cerial marrying Mom, this book is a recipe for a scrumptious afternoon!

    What's not to love about this book? Chocolate and sexy men! Just my style of romance. It's a book sure to keep you giggling. The recipes Shirley shares are DELISH! And the story line is one that will leave you begging for more of the same. It's a great summer read. Light and fresh...you'll love it!

    Decent story but the typos are making it very hard to read. There are wrong words in several spots, like someone decided to throw just any word in. And missing punctuation is rampant. I know it was only 2.99 to buy so I feel bad for complaining.

    This book is not funny. Numerous typos on this e-book make it almost confusing. The characters are so stock and unrealistic and the author does not bother to give them any authentic dialogue.

    Great story but the translation from printed to ebook was not checked very carefully. LOTS of incorrect words or typos which were distracting since you had to re-read the sentence to figure out the meaning.

    Story seems to be OK (I'm about halfway through the book), but - enough with the stupid recipes!!!!! A few scattered through the book would be fine - but one after every chapter? Very annoying to have to skip several pages at the end of each chapter. And I won't even get into the numerous typos that are everywhere. Sometimes makes it difficult to figure out what the author was really saying. If this is what the "savory and sweet" series is like, I certainly won't buy any more of them.

    Huge Shirley Jump Fan!

    Always been a Shirley Jump fan girl and couldn’t wait to settle into my “reading chair” and get started on this one. It definitely didn’t disappoint. I finished it in a day, and I’m almost done with the first half of The Devil Served Desire. I’m not terribly patient, so love it when I discover a series I can just pick up and read straight through.

    I've read one other Shirley Jump book (Simply the Best) which had a lot of funny moments, so I decided to give this book a try. So glad I did. I literally howled with laughter. My dog was disturbed, to say the least. LOL. Anyways, I'd definitely recommend this to my friends and I'm going to check out her other books in the series for sure.

    This was a cute story, but to be honest my favorite part of it was definitely the chocolate recipes. I wanted to drop everything at the beginning of each chapter and run into the kitchen and try them (or, to be honest, have a scantily clad but well-built man do it for me. He'd need to do it shirtless, because it's been so hot out lately. I'm just thinking of him, honest). This says good things about the recipes, but the fact that I was so willing to put the book down...not so much. Of course, I didn't put the book down, so read into that what you will....

    This book is written in a light, breezy style that is fun to read, though at times the metaphors, which are cute, do get to be a bit much. They're creative, but perhaps used a bit too frequently. I did enjoy the characters, though, and will definitely sign on to read Maria's story, when it's released as an ebook. In all, this was a perfect don't-have-to-think-too-much-it's-summer book. With a HEA. And chocolate.

    Sweet story(no pun intended) Read it for fun and enjoy!

    This bride to be kept getting "signs" that she shouldn't get married to her fiance. Her friends and her grandmother kept telling her and she didn't want to listen. Her grandmother is a stitch, her friends are a joy and it turns out just the way it should. This was a lovely romantic story and I loved it.

    Something for everyone!

    This book has it all from the road racing grandma to the support group friends to the life lessons smacking you in the face. This OCD bride has much to give and never thinks twice- until just before the wedding. She confronts her skeletons in her closet and opens her eyes to what was right in front of her. Great read!
