Book Description

Carly Westlake is living the dream. She spends her days at a spa (okay, so she owns the place), she's dating a hunk, and she's surrounded by chocolate—milk chocolate, her favorite—that she uses for the chocolate facials that made her spa famous.

But when long buried secrets threaten Carley's business and her friendship with business-partner Tom, she fights like crazy to keep the dream—and the illusions—afloat.

It takes a miracle of grace to get Carley to finally make that bittersweet surrender to love and real life.

My opinion

I really enjoyed this book and give it 4 out of 5 stars, it's light reading for pure enjoyment.  Doesn't take a lot of thought to read it and is easy to follow all of the characters.  It's well written and I love that it's based at a Chocolate Spa, this was fun to read about.  The main character is lovable and seems like she could be one of my BFF's in real life.  It covers gambling addiction, breast cancer, divorce and several other real problems that people deal with on a daily basis and isn't overly preachy or predictable.  I would recommend it to anyone that's look for some light reading.
