This book is a delightful gift for fans of this series. We get a continuing happily ever after for Luc and Summer with the tender reality of what it really means to marry and start a family of your own.   While I really savored the parts of the story focused on Luc's struggles to accept that he was truely loved and Summer's search to find a enriched self, I must confess my favorite parts were the with the other characters coming in to lend support and love to the couple.  Can't wait for new books in this series!

What a wonderful treat this story is! It's a continuation of Luc and Summer's story, told to us in The Chocolate Heart, with a smattering of other beloved characters thrown into the mix. Told in alternating viewpoints, Luc and Summer are expecting their first child, an event which brings up insecurities for both of them as they reflect on their own less than ideal childhoods. They love each other, yet are still afraid to reveal these insecurities, and the lack of communication between them is dearly felt as they struggle to find their place together in Provence. Yet the reader still keenly feels the link between them as they endeavor to move forward. Especially for Luc, being willing to accept help from men who have been his business rivals is a step forward, and it was heartwarming to see how the camaraderie has developed between the top chocolatiers of Paris. I loved the scenes between the men and the women alike, as the friends and family come together to support Luc and Summer. The tender and sexy love scenes between the couple were also heart wrenchingly real. It was just a delightful read from beginning to end. 5 stars.
