Book Description

Nora Darkin’s life has never been her own, but that’s about to change, and what she finds on the other side will taste a lot like sweet freedom.

Aidan Darkin, a wealthy entrepreneur, has controlled his daughter, Nora, since the death of his wife years prior. Nora never thought to question the decisions he made for her, always believing he knew best. But trust comes with a price, and for Nora, the sacrifice is her own happiness.

On the eve of her wedding, confronted with a truth that will change everything and a betrayal that will fracture the life she’s always known, she will do the unthinkable—defy her father and make her escape.

On her own for the first time, Nora makes the quaint country town of Dreara, known for its extraordinary chocolate, her temporary home. Faced with choosing for herself for the first time in her life, she sets out to capture her own independence, to fall in love for the right reasons with a man of her own choosing, and embark on a journey that will fulfill her soul—even if that means risking it all, and losing more than she ever imagined.

But even a place known for its chocolate doesn’t quite offer Nora the sweet beginning she’d hoped for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real life growth, emotions and a sprinkling of love April 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved how real everything in this book felt. The characters came to life and easily pulled me into their story. The writing of this talented author paints intense emotions in a way that you can't help but experience it all along with Nora as she learns to stand on her own and eventually spread her wings. There were times where I was so sure of the decisions Nora was to take, only to be surprised by the creative path the author chose for her instead.
Liz describes the settings so well that you can see, feel and smell everything around Nora. By the end of the novel you will have experienced every emotion possible and watched Nora grow through her trials all while visiting the wonderful places created by the author. This is not a sappy romance novel, but a book of life...Nora's life, with real feelings and all.

5.0 out of 5 stars READ THIS BOOK April 20, 2012
By naynay
Format:Kindle Edition
Nora Darkin is the daughter of a wealthy entrepreneur, about to marry his right-hand man, Liam Connolly. Her father could not think of a better son-in-law. But at her wedding dinner she announces there will be no wedding, Liam is not the man she thought he was. This decision puts a strain between Nora and her father, as Nora always lived up to his controlling ways just can not do it anymore. So Nora leaves and goes to a small town called Dreara. Here she makes new friends, she starts living her dream to be a chef, she is now living her own life. She meets Ethan Danes, her neighbor who has his own problems, he is there to help Nora. While their relationship grows Nora thinks she finally knows what it is to be happy. But then a woman from Ethan's past comes back into his life.
This is a story that starts off with the main character dealing with forgotten dreams, secrets, and broken promises. As the story continues it is a woman who decides to find herself and stand on her own. A search for new beginnings, learning to forgive, and finding real love. Liz Grace Davis penned such emotion into this story and created characters you easily fell in love with. It is a emotional and an inspiring read, and I want to tell you to BUY THIS BOOK!

I recieved this book from the author for an honest review....Thank-you Liz Davis for a wonderful story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book by talented author May 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Liz Davis did a wonderful job on Chocolate Aftertaste. It's an enjoyable read with twists that will keep you guessing. And just when you think you have it, you know what choices will be made or what will happen, you'll be swept in another direction. Very well done with characters you'll love, dislike then love again. I definitely recommend this book! She's an author to keep your eye on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clean romance May 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This story's setting being in Ireland and infused with culinary aspirations struck a chord with me early on. The heroine goes through quite an emotional drama which never ceases throughout the whole book. It kept me drawn to the character but I found after a few too many times it was a tad bit too much roller coaster drama for me. However I did like it and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys clean romance.

I really liked this book a lot. It had a great start that made you interested immediately. And everything was continuous for the most part. There was a lot of drama and the like. A good balance though of negative and positive.

Personally, I found myself relatively surprised at some points. Because you may find that while some elements are predictable, some are not at all. I did not expect some things to happen. And I went from liking a character to hating them and going back again so easily.

This was a romance story that I've never seen before. The standard template was nothing that I'd ever read you could say. I really wish some things were added. I'd have given anything to see the reaction of a certain female after the man she tried to marry caught her in the most extreme, cruel and dirty lie that naturally... ended everything. I really would have. But it probably would have made the story too long so all I can do is imagine.

But yeah, people who like romance but want something that's almost unexpected and hard to predict will enjoy this. The hard to predict is less having trouble predicting and more discovering that your predictions are wrong. It's quite fun, I'm sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet story! October 5, 2012
By IngaKS
Format:Paperback
My review:

Chocolate Aftertaste by Liz Grace Davis is such a sweet book, that it was a pleasure to read it. When I am saying sweet, I don't mean boring! Not at all! Chocolate Aftertaste was well-written and filled with obstacles and the twists which the protagonists had to face. Besides that, it was not a typical swooning-over-the-hills kind of romance, but romance novel where people faced real life issues.

Before going to the plot, I would like to say, that I really love the cover of the book and also the title of the book. The cover of the book just looks so cozy and the woman on the cover is exactly what picture I got of Nora. Why did I like the title? You'll need to read the book to understand that!

Plot:

Nora is a daughter of controlling father and the book starts out with Nora finally standing up for herself by not marrying the man his father has more or less picked out for her. Liam is Nora's father's right hand man and is expected to marry Nora. Liam is not not nice, he is as cold as ice and Nora saves herself from him almost a second before the marriage.

That of course worsens the beforehand tense relationship with her father and Nora decides to move to a small town Dreara to start over. She meets another person with the broken heart - Ethan. The relationship with Ethan is not easy, because both of them have serious trust issues due to their pasts. When everything seems to be solved and Nora's and Ethan's relationship on it's way to become more than just an attraction, person from his past is appearing.

Characters:

I did not understand Nora in the beginning, I could not relate to her, but as soon as she left Liam, she grew on me.
